Cristian Vazquez’s heartbreaking reaction to the Astros trade (video)

The Red Sox traded Cristian Vazquez for the Astros during batting practice and seemed totally sad at the news.

The MLB deal deadline can bring extreme excitement to teams gaining new superstars and players looking for new beginnings. At the same time, it can be tough for players who are sent this way and that on a whim.

Red Sox catcher Christian Vasquez was the shocking photo of Deadline Trade after Boston struck a deal to send him to the Astros. It happened when Vazquez and his teammates were practicing batting practice in Houston before Monday’s game.

When the reporters had the opportunity to ask the catcher about the trade, he looked dazed and sad.

It was all Vasquez could say “it’s a business” before it was pulled away from the media by a Red Sox official.

Vasquez has been with the Red Sox throughout his career. They drafted him in 2008 and worked his way up with their minor league affiliates until he made his MLB debut in 2014 when he was 23 years old. He won the world championship with the club in 2018 at 27. Now that he is 31 years old, he will have to start over with a new team.

The catcher hits .282/.327.432 this season with an OPS of .759. He has eight home runs and 42 RBI. His war 1.8 is the second best war of his career.

The Red Sox is in an interesting position as both buyers and sellers of the deadline. At the same time they shipped the Vazquez, they picked up Tommy Pham from the Reds.

In Vazquez’s case, the fact that he was heading to free agency at the end of the season led to an urgent need to get something for him now.
