Christian Vazquez returns to starting lineup Thursday

Minnesota Twins catcher Christian Vazquez will return to the starting lineup Thursday versus the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Vazquez gave way to Ryan Jeffers on Wednesday but is right back behind the plate one day later. He's getting the 1A share of reps behind the plate for the Twins but is hitting just .246 with zero homers and a .615 OPS across 77 trips to the plate while being out-hit by the 25-year-old Jeffers to this point.

Christian Vazquez on the bench Wednesday

Minnesota Twins backstop Christian Vazquez is not in Wednesday's starting lineup versus the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Vazquez went hitless in Tuesday's series opener in Chicago and will start game two on the bench. A plus defender, Vazquez is struggling at the plate to begin the season with a .246 average and just three extra-base hits across 77 plate appearances. Ryan Jeffers gets the nod behind the plate and will hit ninth against right-hander Dylan Cease.

Christian Vazquez drives in two Sunday

Christian Vazquez went 1-for-4 with two RBI in an 8-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Vazquez's single in the third inning brought two around to score and staked the Twins to an 8-0 lead. The veteran backstop is off to a solid start with his new team, hitting .262 with nine runs and six RBI in 65 at-bats.

Christian Vazquez signs three-year deal with Minnesota Twins

Christian Vazquez has reportedly signed a three-year contract with the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Impact

The Twins have landed their newest catcher, as this likely spells the end of the Gary Sanchez era in Minnesota. Playing for both the Red Sox and the Astros in 2022, Vazquez slashed .274/.315/.399 with nine homers and 52 RBIs in 119 games played. The 32-year-old, fresh off a World Series championship, will likely be the everyday backstop for the Twins, who seem to be interested in making more moves this offseason.

Christian Vazquez has best game in Astros uniform Thursday

Christian Vazquez was one of three Astros to pick up four hits in a 21-5 victory over the White Sox Thursday. He finished 4-for-6 with three runs and two RBI in the win.

Fantasy Impact

Vazquez has not earned near the playing time many people thought he would when the Astros acquired him at the trade deadline. Martin Maldonado, as poorly as he has hit this year, catches the rotation very well. Houston has one of the best rotations in baseball and Dusty Baker probably does not want to take that away. He is hitting .289 this year, among the best in the league for catchers.
