Red Sox DFA catcher Swihart; recall Leon

Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups Sandy Leon called up catches Chris Sale

The Red Sox chose to move forward with Sandy Leon as their second catcher while cutting ties with Swihart, whom they'd kept on the roster for the last two seasons despite limited playing time.

The Red Sox carried three catchers for the entire 2018 season but decided they would keep just two for this season.

He's batting.231 (6-for-23) with one home run, four RBI and a.310 on-base percentage this season.

The Boston Red Sox are off to a poor start this season, as they entered Tuesday tied for last in the American League East with a 6-11 record.

The 27-year-old was a first-round pick by Boston in 2011, but the team could never figure out a fit for the promising prospect. Leon is in NY with the team and will catch Chris Sale in Tuesday night's series opener against the Yankees.

Leon hit.120 (3-for-25) in his seven games with the PawSox, but had no passed balls and caught three of the six runners that tried to swipe a bag on him in his 60 innings behind the plate.
