Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Vazquez will hit the bench following a stretch of three starts in as many days at catcher. As expected, the backstop has handled the pitching staff well and has halted the running game by throwing out 7-of-18 would-be base stealers this season, but he's sitting on an ugly .212/.261/.298 line for the season. With that in mind, Vazquez could be at risk of a demotion once Ryan Hanigan (neck) returns from the DL, likely at some point this week.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Not in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

Vazquez has been showing signs of life at the plate of late, collecting a pair of multi-hit games over his last three starts, but he'll get the day off Tuesday. Sandy Leon will get the start behind the plate in his place and bat eighth against Chris Sale.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Two hits in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 6-2 win over Seattle.

Vazquez has been slumping, entering Saturday's game on a 4-for-32 (.125), but had hits that contributed to runs in the fifth and sixth innings. He was given two days off and his work in the batting cage paid off for one game, but can he sustain it? Do the Red Sox have enough firepower to overcome a .220-hitting catcher? At what cost are his elite defensive skills? The question of whether or not Vazquez can hit enough to warrant being Boston's number one catcher will dog him and manager John Farrell all season.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Sits second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vazquez was not in the lineup Friday for a second straight game and used the downtime to work more aggressively with Boston's hitting coaches, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. "We felt he needed to address some things from a timing standpoint at the plate," manager John Farrell said. "He's been scuffling."

Part of the rationale to sit Vazquez stems from manager John Farrell's desire to pair Friday night's starter, Roenis Elias, with catcher Sandy Leon, as the two worked together at Triple-A Pawtucket for much of the season, but the night off also gave Vazquez more time to work with hitting coaches in an attempt to break out of a recent slump. Dating back to June 3, the young catcher is 3-for-26, dropping his season average to .209 with a .248 on-base percentage. If not for his elite defensive skills, those numbers would make Vazquez a backup catcher.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Vazquez has started each of the last three games for the Red Sox and will be getting a day off Thursday in favor of Sandy Leon, who will be making his second start of the season. Throughout the 2016 season, Vazquez is hitting .209/.248/.299 with one home run and nine RBI while settling into the primary catching role for Boston in the last couple of weeks.
