At 37 years old, there was only so much more that Boston Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski could do for the team.
That’s why the Red Sox decided to look forward and call up catching prospect Christian Vazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket while designating Pierzynski for assignment.
The move should pay off for the Sox in the long run, and catcher David Ross agrees. Ross has already started to show Vazquez the ropes and said that Boston is “going to be better off having” Vazquez.
