Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez agreed to a one-year, $1.425 million deal with Boston on Friday, MLB.com's Ian Browne reports.

This was the first year of arbitration eligibility for Vazquez. The backstop took over the starting job by the end of last season, slashing .290/.330/.404 with five home runs, 32 RBI and seven stolen bases in 99 games. A BABIP of .348 shows signs of regression, but he should see more action behind the plate as Sandy Leon reverts into a more reserved role this coming season.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Acknowledges need to improve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez said that he needs to get better at calling a game, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports,

Vazquez carries a reputation as an elite defensive catcher but is still learning the art of pitch sequencing and playing to the strength of a pitcher. He's rebounded nicely from Tommy John elbow surgery in 2015 and emerged as Boston's leading catcher. The 27-year-old essentially split the catching chores with Sandy Leon in 2017, but Vazquez was the much better hitter (.290/.330/.404) and should get the greater share of at-bats in 2018. In addition to his surprising hitting results, Vazquez's arm came back to pre-surgery strength, throwing out 21 of 50 would-be base-stealers.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: On bench for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez is not in the lineup for Sunday's ALDS Game 3 against the Astros, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Vazquez drew the start in Friday's Game 2, going 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Despite his productive performance, he'll head back to the bench in favor of Sandy Leon as the Red Sox look to defend their home field and take Game 3 from Brad Peacock and the Astros.

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

Vazquez is not in the lineup for Thursday's ALDS opener against the Astros, The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports.

Sandy Leon will set up behind the plate for Game 1 while Vazquez occupies a seat on the bench. Although he's cooled off a little bit as of late, Vazquez has been hitting well this season, slashing .290/.330/.404 with five home runs and 32 RBI, and could receive a start for Friday's contest with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the mound.

Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Hitting eighth Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth on Saturday against the Astros, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

He was scratched from Friday's lineup for an unknown reason, but is back in there, so if he was dealing with an injury it was obviously quite minor. Vazquez is hitting .295/.328/.410 with one home run in 61 at-bats this month.
