Christian Vazquez On Red Sox Trading Him to Astros: 'It's a Business'

After entering Monday’s nationally televised road game against the Astros as a foe, Red Sox catcher Christian Vázquez didn’t need to travel far after receiving word of his involvement in a reported trade.

Multiple reports surfaced shortly after warm-ups detailing a move sending the nine-year veteran to the Astros for two, undisclosed minor league prospects. As the news continued to circulate, Vázquez, a 2018 World Series champion and Red Sox lifer, gave a clear impression that he was one of the last people to be notified of the deal.

When asked if he had, in fact, been traded to the Astros while standing outside the Red Sox dugout, Vázquez awkwardly told reporters, “I think so, yeah.” He was then asked how it felt to hear the news to which he replied, “It’s a business, it’s a business.”
