Red Sox Have Three Rivals For Javier Vazquez

When Javier Vazquez pitched for his Puerto Rican Winter League team yesterday, the Red Sox were not the only MLB team scouting the veteran righty. The Tampa Rays, Washington Nationals and the Kansas City Royals were also in attendance as Vazquez pitched six shutout innings—hitting 93 on the radar gun and giving up only three hits. The win moved his Caguas team to a 3-0 lead in this round of the playoffs. We'll see if BenCher pulls the trigger on what could be an intriguing solution to the number five starter slot.
