Red Sox's Vazquez to work on game plans, opponents in rehab
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez returned to the clubhouse for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery on Tuesday. The procedure is expected to keep him sidelined for at leats 12 months.
“I don't know [the rehab plan] yet, but I'm going to find out,” Vazquez said, per ESPN.
Although Vazquez's rehab plan has not been established, manager John Farrell hinted that it will involve studying game plans and opponents.
"We don't have the exact details worked out on that, but [in] situations like this that I've seen, you can do some things to bring along the thought pattern and how it can play out in time," Farrell said. "We don't want this nine to 12 months of time to not be constructive, so we'll put a structure and framework to it to try to do the best we can to keep his knowledge of the league and his interaction with us -- even though it's not going to be in uniform -- to continue to grow."
Red Sox C Christian Vazquez expected to be out 12 months
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) After undergoing Tommy John surgery, Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez is expected to be out for about 12 months, reports MLB.com.
"I think we would side toward the pitcher's time frame on this, due to the amount of throwing that he does and how important his arm is to him and his position," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "We would take him through a rehab protocol consistent to a pitcher."
Vazquez's biggest strength is believed to be his strong arm. For that reason, the team will take its time before bringing him back.
"This is a major interruption to his development at the Major League level," said Farrell. "But given the success rate to the procedure, we're fully expecting a complete recovery and for him to get back on track for a very promising career for an extremely talented catcher."
Vazquez, 24, was hitting .176 this spring prior to injuring his elbow.

Red Sox acquire Leon from Nationals, place Vazquez on 60-day DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) The Red Sox traded for Nationals catcher Sandy Leon on Monday. The Nationals received cash considerations in exchange for Leon.
To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox placed catcher Christian Vazquez (elbow) on the 60-day disabled list.
The 26-year-old Leon has appeared in just 34 games at the major-league level. He has a .236/.324/.329/.653 slash line over eight seasons in the minors.
|2014 summary: Christian Vazquez was an early part of the Red Sox's second-half rebuild; he was recalled in early July and served as the team's primary catcher right away. He came pretty much as advertised, not providing much offensively, but justifying his playing time with strong defense. The latter was of little comfort to Fantasy owners, but Vazquez did display a patient approach (4.01 pitches per plate appearance) and a knack for drawing walks (9.5 percent walk rate).
Playing time status: The Red Sox will enter spring training looking to rely on Vazquez to be the primary catcher once again.
2015 outlook: Vazquez has shown few signs of power in the upper minors, but he did post an 18-homer season in the Class A South Atlantic League. Odds are strong that Vazquez won't have a power breakout in 2015, but he could emerge as an on-base threat. Even as such, his appeal is limited to AL-only leagues.
