Christian Vazquez To Sign 3-Year Deal To Move To AL Central

Another sought-after free agent has found a home. Catcher Christian Vazquez, coming off his second World Series win, is signing on with the Minnesota Twins. 

It's reported to be a three-year deal for Vazquez, for $30M, according to Twins beat writer Betsy Halfand

The 32-year-old spent the first 7 ½ years of his career with the Boston Red Sox. He was dealt to the Houston Astros at this year's trade deadline, but was relegated to a time-share at the catcher's position in Houston, and wanted another full-time starting role. He'll have that in Minnesota.

The Twins moved on from the Gary Sanchez experiment after just one year, and have settled instead for a solid defensive option behind the plate.

With Sean Murphy being traded earlier today, and top free agent option Willson Contreras signing over the weekend with St. Louis, that leaves the Toronto Blue Jays as the main source for teams still in desperate need of a solid big league catcher. They have three of them, and will be dealing one.
