Thanks to his offensive woes and fellow backstop Kevin Plawecki's recent success at the plate, Vazquez has seen the bench more often lately. He's hitting just .228 with zero homers over the past 30 games. This lack of power has been an unfortunate trend for the 30-year-old, who has just four homers in 2021 and has not gone yard since June 27th.
Christian Vazquez went 2-for-4 on Thursday. He was the lone Red Sox player with more than one hit in an otherwise quiet night for the offense.

Christian Vazquez went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, and a run scored on Sunday.
Vazquez has really made a name for himself over the past few seasons. He is by no means elite, in terms of fantasy catchers, but he is certainly good enough to get the job done. He possesses a rare combination of contact, power, and speed that is especially useful in categories leagues.
