The San Diego Padres’ Stove League isn’t over yet. It is news that San Diego, which has recruited top-notch infielder Xander Bogarts, is aiming to reinforce the home field.

On the 12th (Korean time),, the homepage of the Major League Baseball, quoted an interview by Ken Rosenthal and said, “San Diego’s next target is Bogatz’s (Boston Red Sox) former teammate, free agent (FA) catcher Christian Vazquez.” . 스포츠토토

Vazquez made his big league debut in Boston in 2014 and transferred to the Houston Astros this season, contributing to the new team’s World Series victory. He appeared in 733 career games, posting a career batting average of 0.261 with 55 home runs and 276 RBIs. While he was a member of Boston, he hit 23 home runs in the 2019 season and drew attention as a catcher with slugging power. After that, however, he never hit a double-digit home run.

In San Diego, Austin Nola and Jorge Alfaro split the home defense innings this season. In the postseason (PS), the two catchers alternated. Alfaro obtained free agent status after the 2022 season. Although Luis Campusano, who has been in his third year of major league debut, is a backup, San Diego general manager AJ Preller seems unwilling to wait and see the decline in the power of the catcher, the core of the defense.
