Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart will make his major league debut Saturday afternoon against the Yankees at Fenway Park. The 23-year-old was called up after Friday's game when Ryan Hanigan suffered a fractured hand. "It's definitely a dream come true," said Swihart. "This is what I dreamed about as a little kid. It's exciting, but at the end of the day I am here for these guys too and I have to help this team win. After Allen Craig started in right field Friday night against left-hander CC Sabathia, Brock Holt will get the start Saturday, as the Yankees will send right-hander Nathan Eovaldi to the mound.
