Can Miguel Bleis be the the Red Sox answer to the Atlanta Braves’ Ronald Acuña Jr? He wants to be, and people around the game think he can do it. (Alex Speier, Boston Globe)

Yesterday, we told you about the fact that there is no “catcher of tomorrow” in the Red Sox upper minors right now. And for that reason, the team is trying to get creative, converting former first baseman/outfielder Stephen Scott to catcher. (Peter Abraham, Boston Globe)

With news of the Arizona Diamondbacks signing promising rookie Corbin Carroll to an 8-year extension, folks have speculated whether Triston Casas might be next. Neither he, nor the team seem to be in a hurry, though. (Rob Bradford, WEEI)

After yesterday’s game, Ceddanne Rafaela, David Hamilton, and Brandon Walter were all re-assigned to Worcester’s camp for the remaining of Spring Training. This wasn’t unexpected, and we’ll likely see all three guys make appearances at Fenway sometime this season. (Christopher Smith, MassLive)
