Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015 and is now fully recovered and making an impact on both offense and defense for Boston.
Vazquez returned to game action in 2016, but he wasn’t quite 100 percent. He’s now playing with confidence after learning how to handle his body and deal with his injury.
In Part 2 of his exclusive interview with Red Sox team historian Gordon Edes, Vazquez details his journey back to the starting lineup in 2017.
Watch the interview in the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
