Shortly after the World Series, Dave Dombrowski admitted that it would be difficult for the Red Sox to keep three catchers on the roster again in 2019.

On Thursday, he took that a step further, acknowledging that he didn't expect to have all three on the roster when the regular season begins in late March.

"I don't anticipate having all three (Blake Swihart, Sandy Leon, and Christian Vazquez) on our club Opening Day,'' said Dombrowski prior to Thursday's 80th annual Boston Baseball Writers Dinner. "There's interest, but we still haven't made a deal we feel comfortable making.''
