Red Sox | Christian Vazquez on fast path to majors?

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez has received praise from some scouts, with one scout saying Vazquez is ready to catch in the major leagues now. Vazquez spent most of his time last year with Double-A Portland, but he's thrown out all 11 runners who have run on him in camp. "What's impressive to me is the progress he's making with the bat," manager John Farrell said the other day. "There's more strength in his swing, there's more solid impact, he drove the ball well to right center field and then there was the home run the other day (against Boston College). When you look at the numbers (.289/.376/.395/.771), it's heading in the right direction. He's on a very good path." C David Ross said Vazquez reminds him of St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina.
