Blake Swihart might not be in a Boston Red Sox uniform much longer.

The 26-year-old catcher/utility man has had a hard time carving out his role in Boston in 2018, and his agent revealed Tuesday he had requested a trade in order to get Swihart some playing time.

Swihart addressed the news before the Red Sox’s 6-4 win over the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park, insisting he just wants to play and will continue to help Boston win.
