by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's win over Baltimore.

The backstop has been one of Boston's most reliable hitters of late -- he has hit safely in seven of the team's last 10 games with a .292 average (12-for-41) in that span.
