Current Arizona (and former Red Sox) GM Mike Hazen is looking for catching. His current tandem is old and not that good. He's considered free-agent Matt Wieters, but he's apparently not that interested. Enter Blake Swihart and Christian Vazquez. Multiple reports indicate that Hazen has expressed interest in both Boston backstop prospects in a possible trade with his old boss Dave Dombrowski. Either Swihart or Vazquez could stabilize Arizona's catching corps for years to come. The word is, however, that Boston has no desire to part with either one—at least for now. Stay tuned!
