Christian Vazquez is having a career year offensively.

The Boston Red Sox entered the 2019 campaign with a large question mark at the catcher position with Vazquez, Sandy Leon and Blake Swihart all battling for the position. Although there was a logjam behind the plate, the 29-year-old excelled and overtook the competition and has been a completely different player ever since.

After hitting a mere three home runs and driving in 16 RBIs over 80 games in 2018, the backstop has responded to the tune of career-highs in home runs (21), RBIs (66), runs (60), doubles (26) and games played (129).
