Christian Vazquez reached base in all four of his plate appearances in Sunday’s loss to the Yankees, going 2-for-2 with a pair of walks.
With David Ross sidelined, the door has been opened for the rookie backstop to assume the real bulk of the playing time behind the dish in Boston. He has done a nice job to this point, slashing .283/.346/.370. He is certainly worth a look in two-catcher mixed leagues. Aug 3 - 11:52 PM

Christian Vazquez went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Vazquez is now 5-for-11 with five RBI, three doubles and three runs scored since being recalled on July 9. Despite his offensive output thus far, Vazquez isn't in the majors for his offense. This is likely just a flash in the pan, but a welcome one from the Red Sox' perspective.

Christian Vazquez had a breakout game Friday against the Astros, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI, and two runs scored.

Vazquez had a ground-rule double to drive in a run in the fourth inning and later added a two-run double in the sixth. Both were to the opposite field. The 23-year-old is the first Red Sox player since Nomar Garciaparra in 1996 to have three hits in one of his first two major league games. While it was a big night for Vazquez, his defense and throwing arm are his big calling cards.

Red Sox recalled C Christian Vazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox are committed to going young from here on out, as they've designated A.J. Pierzynski for assignment and will give Vazquez a shot. Vazquez is known more for his defense than his offense, but the 23-year-old has put up a respectable .279/.336/.385 batting line with three homers at Pawtucket this season. He should receive most of the playing time behind the dish but isn't a great fantasy option.
Jul 9 - 2:46 PM

Red Sox purchased the contract of C Christian Vazquez from Double-A Portland.

After a breakout year at the plate in 2011, Vazquez fell back a bit in 2012, batting .254/.344/.369 with seven homers between High- and Double-A. That didn't prevent the Red Sox from protecting him from the Rule 5 draft, though.
