Red Sox give young catcher Blake Swihart a breather Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/15) Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart will get a rest on Thursday against the Rangers, as he is being held out of the starting lineup. The rookie catcher has started each of the last four games, but he's starting to turn things around at the plate.

Swihart's been struggling offensively since his call-up on May 2, hitting just .170 on the year. But he has a hit in three of his last four games, so perhaps he is starting to adjust to Major League pitching.

Sandy Leon will spell Swihart behind the plate and bat ninth on Thursday.

Red Sox dropping down more bunts in 2015

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell has been asking his players, speficially Xander Bogaerts, Blake Swihart and Sandy Leon, to drop down more bunts this season, according to MLB.com.

"We've placed a greater emphasis on it in spring training," said Farrell. "Maybe guys that haven't done it in their Minor League career, guys that dominate the Minor Leagues [but are] going to come up and hit in the bottom third of our order ... you want to allow them to grow as Major League players, but to contribute to a rally by putting down a sacrifice bunt, there's a lot of benefit that goes to the individual."

Boston has already dropped down 10 sacrifices this season in 36 games after only getting 20 down last season. 

"You go back to the game situation," said Farrell. "Did we anticipate an offense that would be more consistent than what we've shown? Yes, and we'll realize that in time. But where we are and what the game is suggesting and presenting to us, we've got to be equipped to handle that, and we've asked guys in those spots to lay a bunt down."

Several regulars return to Red Sox lineup Thursday vs. Mariners

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell is returning several regulars back to the starting lineup on Thursday against the Mariners. First baseman Mike Napoli, shortstop Xander Bogaerts, catcher Blake Swihart and right fielder Shane Victorino were rested on Wednesday, but all are back in for Thursday night's contest.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart receives another breather after 0-for-3 night

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/13/15) Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart received another day of rest Wednesday afternoon against Oakland, after going 0 for 3 with a strikeout the previous night. Sandy Leon will get the start and bat ninth for Boston on Tuesday.

Swihart is hitting .133 (4 for 30) with two doubles since joining the majors.

Boston is an underdog (+131) at Oakland, per VegasInsider.com.

David Ross gives sage advice to Red Sox C Blake Swihart

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/15) Current Cubs backup catcher David Ross understands the plight of Red Sox new starter Blake Swihart. The former knows the pressure of being a young backstop. He knows the pressure of playing in Boston. And he knows the pressure of working with an underachieving pitching staff.

So he is providing some advice.

"In Blake's instance, you're looking at a young player who has a lot of hype surrounding him and rightfully so," Ross told WEEI. "But the things I've learned over the years of being a catcher are things I've learned from making mistakes. I've been table to make mistakes as a backup, things that have molded me into the game-caller that I am. The best way to learn in baseball when you make mistakes is to get burned by them and then take a mental note that you're able to store away about hitters or about a pitcher that can or can't execute a certain pitch."

Ross added that it's unrealistic to expect too much from Swihart so quickly.

"There'a learning curve," Ross said. "And then there's the trust factor. When you have a young guy back there, it takes a while to build that trust, and to figure out whether or not this guy knows what he's doing or not doing. It's a process. It's not just going to happen in a couple of starts. ... The more [a pitcher shakes] me off the more I'm going to understand the way you like to pitch and the better it will be for me. That way when we do get into tight situations they're not scared to go with what they feel."

It is hoped Swihart is not taking his struggles at the plate with him behind it - or vice versa. He has just two hits in 22 at-bats since his arrival.
