Stephen Vogt went 3-for-5 and hit his sixth homer Friday against the Angels.
Vogt is hitting .286 with two homers, a triple and five doubles in 56 at-bats this month. Unfortunately, all that has been good for is just four RBI and five runs scored. That's what playing for the A's gets you. Jun 25 - 1:53 AM

Stephen Vogt is not in Monday's lineup for the series opener against the Rangers.

He'll sit for the second straight day with another left-hander, this time Cesar Ramos, on the mound. Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and catch Sean Manaea.

Stephen Vogt went 2-for-4 and hit his fifth home run of the season on Friday night in Cincinnati.

Vogt went deep off Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani in the third inning to give the Athletics an early lead. Vogt has been serving as his team's three hole hitter lately, a strong sign of why Oakland has one of the lowest-scoring lineups in the American League. His .731 OPS is not bad at all, but having a league average hitter as the number three in the batting order means the rest of the lineup must not be very strong. Given the weak state of the catcher position league-wide, Vogt is one of the better catchers to own in fantasy leagues.

Stephen Vogt is out of the A's lineup Wednesday.

Josh Phegley will take a turn at catcher versus the Twins. He's batting sixth against lefty Pat Dean.
Jun 1 - 1:09 PM

Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

Being an afternoon game after a night game, Vogt will take a seat in favor of Josh Phegley who was activated from the disabled list on Friday. Look for Vogt to be back behind the dish for Sunday's series finale.
May 28 - 1:16 PM

Stephen Vogt had a solo homer and an RBI on an HBP against the Mariners on Monday night.

That'll do. The homer off Taijuan Walker in the seventh accounted for the first run of the game for either team, and the HBP in the eighth helped add to Oakland's cushion. Vogt is hitting .252 with four homers this year.

Stephen Vogt (wrist) hopes to return to the lineup Sunday.

Vogt was unavailable Saturday after getting hit in the wrist with a pitch Friday, but it sounds like he'll be fine. The catcher sports a .250/.284/.371 batting line with three homers this season.
May 22 - 9:39 AM

Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

Given that it's a day game after a night game and Vogt has been a bit hobbled as of late, it's a good time to give him a rest. Matt McBride will work behind the dish for the A's and bat eighth against Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees.
May 21 - 12:29 PM

Stephen Vogt (thumb) is out of Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

Vogt took a pitch off his left thumb when he tried to stop a wild pitch on Sunday. X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day. Josh Phegley (knee) is out again Monday, so Matt McBride is starting behind the plate.
May 16 - 5:41 PM

Stephen Vogt is considered day-to-day after X-rays on his thumb came back negative on Sunday.

He received a pitch behind the plate that caught him in the left thumb, but the pain wasn't enough for him to come out of the game Sunday. If anything, he may see a day of rest as a precaution, but it shouldn't necessitate a trip to the disabled list.
May 15 - 5:15 PM

Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

Being a day game after a night game, Vogt will take a seat and allow Josh Phegley to work behind the plate. Phegley will bat eighth against opposing right-hander Chris Devenski on Saturday.
Apr 30 - 12:39 PM

Stephen Vogt homered in his second straight game Saturday against the Royals.

Apr 16 - 9:20 PM

Stephen Vogt is not in the A's lineup Tuesday night against the White Sox.

Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and bat seventh against White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Vogt isn't going to face many tough lefties this season.
Apr 5 - 5:36 PM

Stephen Vogt (elbow) admitted Tuesday that that his throwing is "not where I want it to be."

Vogt has been eased into things this spring after surgery in January to remove a bone chip from his right elbow. While his throwing is not 100 percent yet, he said it's "getting better and better" and he's been allowed to catch in back-to-back games. Vogt's workload shouldn't be affected at the start of the season.
Mar 22 - 9:21 PM

Stephen Vogt (elbow) will throw to the bases again on Saturday.

As long as everything goes well, he'll make his Cactus League debut behind the plate at some point next week. The 31-year-old is off to a strong start at the dish this spring, going 5-for-9 (.556) with a pair of homers and five RBI.
