Rumors Swirl Around Activation Of Christian Vazquez
It looks as if Christian Vazquez is recovering nicely from last year's Tommy John surgery—so much so that he's playing now in Pawtucket. Given the recent struggles of Blake Swihart (both at and behind the plate), there is growing talk that Vazquez could be activated and brought up to the big club from AAA. Even the normally cryptic John Farrell was somewhat clear, "Part of discussions that are ongoing...nothing imminent." Swihart has no extra-base hits so far this year—despite an abundance of playing time. He's also had a bunch of passed balls and had a huge dropped foul pop-up last night. Stay tuned!
