Red Sox trade Vázquez, Diekman in separate deals ahead of MLB trade deadline Boston News Weather Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — The Red Sox have acquired Chicago White Sox catcher Reese McGuire in exchange for backup pitcher Jake Diekman after Christian Vázquez left for the Astros hours before the Red Sox game in Houston.

News of Vázquez’s trade came as he attended batting practice and turned to the media when a Red Sox public relations officer reportedly pulled him away.

Neither club has confirmed the move or what the Astros are sending to Boston, but the Red Sox have have announced the trade that sent Diekman to Chicago for McGuire, along with either a player to be named or cash considerations.

Diekman signed with Boston back in March and signed a two-year contract as a free agent. The 35-year-old has had a 4.23 ERA in 44 appearances this season.

McGuire played 53 games for the White Sox this year and batted .225.

He will join the Red Sox when they part ways with Vázquez, a 2008 draft pick who worked his way through the farm system before making his professional debut in 2014.

Vázquez was Boston’s key catcher going into the 2018 World Series-winning season before an injury left him on the disabled list for most of the summer.

He would return in time for the postseason when the Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the championship.
