Blake Swihart—ranked as the #1 prospect in the Red Sox organization—has been named as Baseball America's Defensive Catcher Of The Year. The authoritative website stated that Swihart is just about ready to make the jump to the major leagues. The 22-year old switch-hitting backstop hit .293 between AA and AAA in 2014—clouting 13 HRs. He may join Christian Vazquez on the 2015 big club—comprising one of the youngest Boston catching tandems ever. Congratulations, Blake!
