Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez is having a very solid season, and he's showing no signs of letting up.
In 146 at-bats, Vazquez is hitting .301/.340/.500 with a career-high seven homers, eight doubles, and 20 RBIs. He's been particularly hot this month, as he's 28-for-74 for a .378 average, including eight multi-hit games. His hits and multi-hit games are a career-high for a calender month, as well as his five doubles. His three homers also tie a career-high for a month, which he's done three previous times, including this April.
Vazquez has one more May game, which is tonight against the Yankees in the Bronx. Vazquez's career-high for batting average in a month is .385 (20-for-54), which came in August 2017. So with a good game tonight, Vazquez could set a new personal mark in that department.
Behind the plate, Vazquez has thrown out 8-of-19 (42.1%) runners and hasn't committed an error yet (despite six passed balls) in 347 total chances.
The 28-year-old backstop has two more guaranteed years in Boston before his 2022 club option kicks in.
