Christian Vazquez is having a career year.

Although the Boston Red Sox’s season hasn’t gone as planned, there still have been a few bright spots, and the 29-year-old backstop is one of them. Vazquez has taken a step forward offensively and its paying off with career-highs in doubles (25), home runs (19), RBI (60) and runs (57) entering Sunday’s series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies.
