Swihart was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.
This was an obvious move, given that Swihart is on the 40-man roster. However, it's hard to imagine him seeing much playing time down the stretch. He has struggled to hold up physically and offer quality defense at catcher, and he does not offer enough offense to profile at left field, first base or DH -- the three other positions he has played in the minor leagues. Swihart hit .190 with four home runs in 212 plate appearances at Triple-A this year. Sep 01 11:31 am (EST)
- Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that Swihart is a strong candidate to join the big club in September to serve as the team's third catcher, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
- Swihart (ankle) was activated from the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.
- Swihart (ankle) made his debut at first base Monday while on rehabilitation assignment at Boston's affiliate in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. The 25-year-old previously had served as designated hitter in his first three rehab games. All Blake Swihart (B) News
