Leon cleared waivers . Can either accept assignment to pawsox or lose his $2.5mm guarantee.
took his assignment and keeping the money. This is a good outcome for Boston, especially if it gets the pay out of the luxury tax calculation.

For as poorly as Sox pitching is doing perhaps Sandy may make it back to the big squad?

That's too bad.  Does anyone think this could be the end of a career ?

That may happen, but I think they try to run a while with Swihart as Vasquez's backup.  No question they messed up Swihart's development (would have loved that Benintendi and Swihart for Harper deal I tossed out in 2016-17 offseason fro both teams), so they are giving him a fair shot.  He's at the age when Varitek became the #1 guy, so a bit of late blooming by a busted prospect would be nice.  They say that Leon in Pawtucket might be good for pitcher development.

I see Keith Law wrote for ESPN today that Giolito is "healthy and has his velocity back." Picks him as a "breakout candidate" for 2019.

Got chased with 5 ER's thru 4.1 today...

Red Sox dfa Swihart and call up Sandy, seems a bit of desperation as they try to get Sale right.
