Vazquez played 84 games for Boston last season before being sent to Houston in exchange for prospects. The 32-year-old catcher helped the Astros to a World Series title, marking the second championship of his career.

The Red Sox continued their 2022 campaign with Reese McGuire and Connor Wong as their catching tandem. Although both are under contract with Boston for 2023 season, Bloom adds the organization is "active" on the catching market.

In eight seasons with Boston (698 games), Vazquez slashed .262/.311/.389 with 54 homers and 266 RBI. He was the starting backstop during the club's 2018 World Series run.

Bloom and the Red Sox will have plenty of competition for Vazquez's services. Several teams, including the San Diego Padres, Cleveland Guardians, and Arizona Diamondbacks, reportedly are interested in signing him.
