Red Sox activated C Blake Swihart from the 15-day disabled list.
Swihart wound up missing slightly under three weeks with a sprained left foot. The 23-year-old catcher hasn't shown much yet at the major league level, but he has the talent to make some splashes down the stretch. Sandy Leon was designated for assignment Monday in a corresponding roster move.

Red Sox designated C Sandy Leon for assignment.
Boston manager John Farrell said he's looking for more offense from his catchers, so Leon and his .438 OPS have been shipped out and Blake Swihart is returning to the active roster. Leon, 26, will likely clear waivers.roto
