John Farrell Discusses Expected Impact Of Christian Vazquez Behind Plate

The Boston Red Sox made a few roster moves Friday, recalling catcher Christian Vazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket while optioning catcher Blake Swihart to the same place.

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told the media that Swihart would start taking fly balls in left field with an eye toward a future with both Vazquez and Swihart in Boston’s every day lineup.

Manager John Farrell later joined Tom Caron on NESN’s “Friday Night Fenway” to discuss the impact of both moves on the club. Check it out in the video above.
