According to Sean McAdam of the Boston Sports Journal, the Red Sox have been "flooded with calls" asking about the availability of Blake Swihart.
Swihart is having a big spring, but there is not an obvious spot for him on Boston's major league roster and so it seems feasible that a trade might happen within the next couple of weeks. The 25-year-old former top prospect would make sense for a number of rebuilding teams. Swihart was drafted as a catcher, but he has also played some first base and left field in recent seasons.
