Christian Vazquez’s bat has proven to be too valuable at times this season to take him out of the lineup when he needs a breather from behind the plate.

Luckily for the Boston Red Sox, the catcher has proven he has the versatility to play a couple different positions. Vazquez has made several starts at first base this season and even appeared at third base in the Sox’s 16-4 rout of the Los Angeles Angels on Friday.

Alex Cora credited Vazquez’s ability to play multiple spots.
