RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Vazquez's prospect status is on the rise, largely due to his defensive abilities, and particularly his ability to control the opposing running game. He threw out 46 percent of would-be base-stealers and his pop-up time when throwing to second base is gaining notoriety. Though he can be a streaky hitter, Vazquez has improved offensively over the years, and he had a career-best OBP and reduced his strikeouts from 79 to 44 in 2013. Vazquez's defense has him headed for the major leagues. If he maintains/develops his improved plate approach and continues to make consistent contact, he figures to be a full-time starter. Look for him to start the season at Triple-A Pawtucket and possibly get a crack at the big leagues later in the season.

2013

Vazquez, a ninth-round selection in 2008 at the age of 17, has worked his way up to the Double-A level largely on his glove. He was able to hit enough in the lower levels to get by while his improvements defensively and as a leader has garnered attention in the organization. He was added to Boston's 40-man roster in the offseason. He has the ability to control an opponent's running game. There's a sense that his glove alone will carry him to the major leagues. The bat, on the other hand, may be problematic. He'll return to Double-A Portland where he'll work on the more advanced aspects of catching: working with pitchers, game calling and varying pitch sequences.

2012

Vazquez spent his second straight season in the Low-A South Atlantic League for Greenville, becoming the Drive's primary backstop in 2011. The defensive side of the game made impressive strides, though some improvement in mechanics are still needed. Vazquez is a work in progress as a hitter, but improved mechanics gave him greater bat speed and he generated more power than we expected. His swing will be challenged more as he advances levels in the organization. He'll likely land at High-A Salem where he'll see less mistakes, so a power drop is expected. Continued work on quickening his swing and maintaining good contact rates will be a key for hitting success in 2012.

2011

Vazquez, a ninth-round draft pick in 2008, shows some agility behind the plate but still needs work in other defensive aspects (quicker release, blocking balls). He's got the attitude to improve. He's not very advanced with the bat, but has some power potential and could evolve into an adequate hitter. He'll likely be placed at Low-A Greenville.
