Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Designated for assignment
It's a surprising move, as Swihart's .231/.310/.385 line in 12 games wasn't particularly poor for a part-time catcher who's also capable of playing multiple spots in the field. A corresponding move has yet to be announced, but this likely means the Red Sox will promote Sandy Leon, a catcher who was designated for assignment himself in late March. Leon's bat was very poor last season, but the Red Sox may want him around due to relationships with the team's struggling pitching staff, particularly Chris Sale. Swihart is unlikely to pass through waivers unclaimed, so the Red Sox will look to get something in return for him via trade.
