Heath Hembree had the numbers last year but if you looked closer you would have found that he wasn’t as great as those statistics indicated. (Matthew Kory; BP Boston)

We visited with Blake Swihart in yesterday’s links, but here’s another piece about the still intriguing prospect. (Mike Cole; NESN)

Williams Jerez is back on the 40-man roster. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)
