Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Agent requests trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart's agent, Brodie Scoffield, acknowledged Tuesday that he has implored the Red Sox front office to trade his client, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Swihart broke camp with the Red Sox as a utility man, with the fact that he had no minor-league options remaining likely weighing heavily into Boston's decision to keep the 2011 first-round pick on the 25-man roster. Despite Swihart's ability to play behind the plate in addition to a number of spots around in the infield and outfield, Red Sox skipper Alex Cora has had difficulty finding room in the lineup for the 26-year-old, who has logged just 32 plate appearances across 15 games entering play Wednesday. With second baseman Dustin Pedroia (knee) nearing a return from the 10-day disabled list and Swihart's role likely to shrink even further once that happens, Boston could become a little more willing to grant Scoffield's request. Though he hasn't found much offensive success in the majors since his debut season in 2015, the switch-hitting Swihart's strong pedigree and defensive versatility should leave the Red Sox with no shortage of suitors if they elect to shop him.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart: No catching opportunities planned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart is unlikely to get any opportunities behind the plate despite the early struggles of Christian Vazquez and Sandy Leon, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Swihart has yet to catch a single inning this season. He's made two starts, both as a designated hitter, and has only played 10 innings in the field, six in left field and four at first base. In infrequent playing time (just 18 plate appearances) he's hitting a very poor .176/.222/.235, but he's stuck on the major-league roster as he's out of options. The situation appears unlikely to change any time soon.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Makes second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart started as the designated hitter and went 0-for-4 in Sunday's 4-1 loss to Oakland.

The Red Sox like to tout Swihart's athleticism and ability to play multiple positions, but at this point, he's really just a DH or left fielder. Of course, he's a catcher as well, but manager Alex Cora appears happy with Christian Vazquez and Sandy Leon, both of whom are struggling at the plate but are superior to Swihart behind the dish. Swihart's considered the best hitter of the bunch, but he doesn't get nearly enough opportunities -- his 17 at-bats are the fewest on the squad -- and is at .176 after Sunday's 0-fer. He's taking up a roster spot because he has no options left and the Red Sox aren't ready to lose him to another team if they designate him for assignment.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Will get start over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart will start at least one game during the weekend series against Oakland, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Swihart has just one start this season, but the catcher-turned-utility man has remained positive. His name pops up at several positions on the depth chart, even second base, where he's taken grounders, but his start this weekend is expected to be as a designated hitter or in left field.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Fills in for injured Betts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart entered Saturday's game as a replacement for the injured Mookie Betts (foot). He went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in a 10-3 win over the Orioles.

Betts initially stayed in the game after a first-inning, home plate collision resulted in what the team has described as a left foot contusion, but was eventually replaced by Swihart, who entered the game as the left fielder. Betts is day-to-day, so there could be a chance for Swihart to get another day in the lineup. Prior to Saturday's appearance, Swihart had played in just five of 13 games.
