Red Sox catcher prospect Swihart not worried about trade rumors
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) Red Sox catcher prospect Blake Swihart said he is not trying to get caught up in the trade rumors involving Phillies ace Cole Hamels. It is expected the Phillies would want Swihart, if they were to work a trade with the Red Sox.
"I mean, you hear about it, but I'm not worried," Swihart said, per the Boston Herald. "That stuff's out of my control, so I don't even think about it or ask questions. Teams are interested, so you know you're doing something right. You've just got to keep going about your business the right way."
Swihart, who is expected to open the season in Triple-A, is considered Boston's top prospect by Baseball America and the team's second-best prospect by MLB.com.
Report: Red Sox not willing to deal Blake Swihart for Cole Hamels

|(2/3/15) The Phillies are targeting Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart in a deal for starting pitcher Cole Hamels, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale on Tuesday. Because the Red Sox don't want to deal Swihart, who is the top-ranked prospect in Boston's farm by Baseball America, both sides have reached a stalemate.
Swihart slashed .293/.341/.469 with 13 homers and 64 RBI over 416 at-bats between Triple-A Pawtucket and Double-A Portland.
Swihart making 'big strides'
|(2/6/13) Red Sox prospect Blake Swihart had a productive first year of pro ball last season as he batted .262 with seven homers and 53 RBI at Class A Greenville. The 20-year-old told ESPN.com on Wednesday catching 66 games in 2012 helped him get a better feel for the game. Big strides, he said. And then this offseason I've just improved even more and hopefully next season I can [keep improving].
