Swihart, 22, slugged a home run in his third game Friday since being promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Swihart has had a breakout season for the Red Sox. In 92 games at Double-A Portland, Swihart slashed .300/.353/.487 with 12 home runs, 55 RBI and seven stolen bases. Swihart has a much better bat than current Boston starter Christian Vazquez, though Vazquez is considered a better defensive product.
