Christian Vazquez has been an offensive surprise for the Boston Red Sox this year.

The catcher has a .267 average with five home runs and 14 RBIs after finishing the 2018 season with just three dingers. Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters before Boston’s matchup with the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday that Vazquez worked hard in spring training to correct last year’s mistakes at the dish.

To hear Cora’s full comments, check out the “Red Sox Gameday Live” video above, presented by DCU.
