Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Today's links include stories on Boston's future catcher, it's current catcher, and a left-hander the latter will be catching, but the former may not.

Blake Swihart continues to display humility despite the national recognition he's been receiving. (Chris Hatfield; SoxProspects.com)

A.J. Pierzynki, while speaking at the same event that Swihart attended, says he's ready to learn Boston's pitching staff, his third different pitching corps in the same number of years. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Where does Jon Lester stand after Clayton Kershaw signed his record deal? (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

When discussing Kershaw's deal, Peter Gammons referenced one of Boston's top pitching prospects a few times. (Peter Gammons; Daily Gammons)

The Yankees used to be Boston's biggest competition during free agency. Now, it's the Los Angeles Dodgers. (Ron Chimelis; MassLive.com)

Giancarlo Stanton-to-the-Red Sox rumors have yet to come to an end (and probably never will). Here's a potential 2015 Red Sox roster with Stanton penciled in. (Ricky Doyle; NESN.com)

Former Red Sox prospect Ryan Pressly has lost his biggest supporter, as his father recently passed away. Pressly was poached from the Red Sox by the Twins in the 2012 Rule 5 draft. (Rhett Bollinger; MLB.com)
