Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Inks deal with Boston
Swihart avoids arbitration in the first year he is eligible as he is set to begin 2019 as reserve catcher and utility man. The 26-year-old slashed .229/.285/.328 with three home runs in 207 plate appearances last season. Sandy Leon and Christian Vasquez should head into spring training with a leg up on the starting spot at catcher but had similar offensive struggles last season, which could allow Swihart to factor into the timeshare behind the plate in 2019.
