Red Sox mourn brother of C Blake Swihart
The team confirmed the death of Romell Jordan on Wednesday after abruptly canceling its scheduled spring training media availability in the morning. The Red Sox said that out of respect for the family’s privacy, no other information was available.
Jordan’s death comes less than a week after Boston Globe baseball writer Nick Cafardo collapsed and died outside the clubhouse at the team’s spring training complex.
Manager Alex Cora says it “puts everything in perspective again.”
