    Sox future - Blake Swihart

    Another kid I really like. Good mental makeup, good work ethic. The fact that hes up to 200lbs with good mobility still is even more encouraging. That was my biggest knock on him, his size. The future is bright with Swihart and Vasquez almost ready fpor the show...

    He's supposedly a real baseball junkie as well.  Very knoweldgable and in love with the game.... 

    he was 5th on MLB.coms top catching prospects.  http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/prospects/watch/y2014/#list=c

    I love how his hit grade is rated higher than anyone in the top 10 however.  

    That article you posted was a good one, I read it the other day...definitely a lot to like in Swihart.  Honestly the more I hear about him the more I like him.   If he has a great year this year I can see him being a top 20 prospect.

    With our system being full of solid prospects, hes sitting at #5 right now. I would imagine if he can do well in AA he should realistically be in the top 20 on the various Milb prospect lists.

    Besides 1b and OF our system is stacked right now, and a couple unknowns could make a name for themselves at those positions over the next year or 2, like Margot or DeLaCruz
