Red Sox Send Swihart And Rodriguez To AAA

The Red Sox pared their roster down to 49 by optioning both catcher Blake Swihart and pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez to AAA Pawtucket (soon-to-be Providence). In the not-too-distant future, Rodriguez and Swihart will make up a potent battery for The Carmine Hose—both among the best team prospects at their respective positions. There are now 36 players on the 40-man roster—with 13 non-roster players still in big-league camp.
