The Marlins have announced catcher Jarrod Saltalamachhia has been released. The team designated him for assignment last week, but could not work out a trade with any team. He now becomes a free agent and can sign with any team. With the Red Sox' catching situation (just Blake Swihart and Sandy Leon after Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan went down with long-term injuries), and him spending four years in Boston, there would seem to be at least some interest, but as of last week a source told's Rob Bradford the Red Sox were not interested. It is a situation that should be monitored. For more Red Sox news, visit
