Red Sox Pick Up Contract Option For Catcher Christian Vázquez

Vázquez essentially confirmed it himself by tweeting "#dirtywater"


Nov 7, 2021

Christian Vázquez will be returning to the Boston Red Sox as the organization picked up his club option to remain under contract through the 2022 season, the team announced Saturday evening.

MassLive’s Chris Cotillo and the Boston Globe’s Alex Speier had reported the news previously.

The Red Sox catcher seemed to confirm it himself by tweeting “#dirtywater,” depicting his excitement.

He also added a much more colorful tweet after the Red Sox announced the move.

Vázquez, 31, has played each of the last seven seasons in Boston, totaling 614 career games. He has hit .259 (527-for-2,035) with 46 home runs and 224 RBI in his career.

Vázquez had arguably his best season in 2019 as he hit a career-best 23 home runs with 72 RBIs in 138 games. He matched that career-high of 138 games played during the 2021 season. He led Majoor League Baseball in innings (1,051 1/3 frames).

In other Red Sox news, left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez reportedly received a qualifying offer, while Boston declined options on a pair of relief pitchers.
