Instead, the Red Sox designated catcher/utility man Blake Swihart for assignment on Tuesday before taking on the Yankees in The Bronx, WEEI first reported.

Consider it surprising, then, that this is how things end between Swihart and the Red Sox.

He's batting.231 (6-for-23) with one home run, four RBI and a.310 on-base percentage this season. He caught eight games, committing three errors while throwing out just one of the five runners that tested his arm behind the plate.

Blake Swihart's career with the Boston Red Sox could be over.

The switch-hitting former top 20 MLB prospect has yet to put it together at the highest level, with a.679 OPS in 203 big league games.

Swihart, 27, has always been one of Boston's more puzzling players. Prior to a series-opening tilt against the New York Yankees, the Red Sox created a ruckus with an unexpected roster move.

The Red Sox have called up catcher Sandy Leon from Pawtucket, a baseball source confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
