The Texas Rangers need to address their catching situation. Would a trade for Boston Red Sox Blake Swihart give the club what it needs at catcher?
Per ESPN.com, Blake Swihart’s agent has requested the Boston Red Sox’s former #2 prospect be traded. Swihart is currently a part of Boston’s 25-man roster; however, he’s expected to be the odd man out once 2B Dustin Pedroia returns from injury in a couple of weeks. What’s the catch? Swihart is out of options; thus, he’ll either have to remain with the Red Sox in the big leagues or be moved to another MLB team. The situation has caught the interest of a few teams. Should the Texas Rangers be one of them?
