If Red Sox Baseball President Dave Dombrowski swaps one of Boston's three sensors before opening day, Alex Cora has no problem.
Dombrowski said it was "philosophically" ideal to wear only two reinforcements early in the 2019 Major League Baseball season. Sox's manager is in the game thanks to Juan Centeno, the minor league catcher. of the club. The coach said Sunday that he was comfortable with the depth of the Boston Minor League at the post if Sandy Leon, Blake Swihart or Christian Vazquez were traded.
"We are good," said Cora, via MassLive. "I had Juan (Centeno) in Houston in 2017. He was on the list of playoffs. So I am comfortable. "
Neither Dombrowski nor Cora gave any indication as to the choice of the receiver who would be the first candidate to be traded.
Centeno has signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox this season, following terms with the New York Mets, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins. He has appeared in 111 major league games and has a .227 batting average.
