FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox, Rays, Nationals and Royals were all in attendance to watch Javier Vazquez in his Puerto Rican Winter League debut on Friday.
By all accounts, Vazquez looked very sharp during the outing. He pitched six shutout innings, allowing just three singles and no walks while racking up four strikeouts. His velocity sat consistently at 93 mph, touching as high as 95, and he maintained good command of the strike zone. Interest in the veteran right-hander should heat up after this terrific showing.
