According to a text from Criollos de Caguas general manager Alex Cora, pitcher Javier Vazquez was "impressive" in his Friday night outing against Cangrejeros de Santurce in the Puerto Rico Winter League playoffs.
The Red Sox were scouting Vazquez, who was also watched by scouts from the Rays, Nationals and Royals. The 36-year-old righty went six innings, not allowing a run while surrendering just three hits. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter while touching 93 mph with his fastball.
Vazquez, who is expected to pitch for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, last pitched in the major leagues during the 2011 season, when he made 32 starts for the Marlins. The pitcher finished the '11 season going 13-11 with a 3.69 ERA, going 5-0 with a 0.71 ERA in the final month of the season.
