Brewers placed C Stephen Vogt on the 10-day disabled list with a left knee sprain.

Vogt suffered the injury Monday on a collision at home plate. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Jett Bandy has been recalled and he'll back up Manny Pina.

Stephen Vogt (knee) will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

The good news is Vogt escaped Monday's collision with Chad Kuhl without a concussion, but there's some concern about his left knee. We'll obviously know more once those test results are in.

Stephen Vogt departed Monday's game against the Pirates after being involved in a collision at home plate with Chad Kuhl.

Vogt was down for a while after the collision and is being evaluated for a potential neck and left knee strain. The Brewers should have an update later Monday.

Stephen Vogt slugged a two-run homer Tuesday against the Orioles.

Vogt's blast in the second inning off of Ubaldo Jimenez got the scoring going. It was his third homer in six games for the Brew Crew after he hit only four in 54 contests this season for the Athletics.
Jul 4 - 6:50 PM

Stephen Vogt powered the Brewers past the Marlins with a pair of homers and three RBI as part of a 3-2 victory on Friday.

Vogt, who was claimed off waivers from the Athletics earlier this week, slugged a solo homer off Edinson Volquez in the fifth inning before putting the Brewers ahead with a two-run blast off David Phelps in the seventh. It was his third career multi-homer game. The 32-year-old was batting just .217 with a .644 OPS before the Athletics moved on, but he’s not far removed from being a useful bat behind the plate.

Stephen Vogt will hit seventh in Wednesday's game against the Reds.

The Brew Crew claimed Vogt off waivers from the A's on June 25. He has seen one plate appearance with the team, but Wednesday's contest will be his first start with his new club. He was hitting .217/.287/.357 in 174 at-bats with the A's before they opted to cut ties.

Brewers claimed C Stephen Vogt off waivers from the Athletics.

Vogt, 32, has batted just .217/.287/.357 this season and hit only .222/.287/.365 in the second half last season. However, he was an All-Star in 2015 and 2016 and is under team control through 2020. With Jett Bandy in a lengthy slump (.151/.240/.247 since May 1), the Brewers felt Vogt was worth a shot. He figures to share catching duties with Manny Pina but looks like a capable second catcher in fantasy leagues now with Miller Park as his new home.
Jun 25 - 1:31 PM

Athletics designated C Stephen Vogt for assignment.

Vogt was an American League All-Star in 2015 and 2016, but the 32-year-old catcher had put up a weak .217/.287/.357 batting line in 174 plate appearances this season. Bruce Maxwell has been recalled from Triple-A to serve as Josh Phegley's backup.
Jun 22 - 11:31 AM

Stephen Vogt went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Vogt twice came through with RBI hits against Chris Archer, scoring a pair of runners with a single in the second inning and driving in one more with a double in the fourth. The veteran backstop is working to a .226/.274/.370 triple-slash with four homers and 17 RBI across 146 at-bats.
Jun 11 - 6:53 PM

Stephen Vogt socked a two-run homer Friday against the Yankees.

His ninth-inning blast off Jonathan Holder provided the A’s with some valuable late insurance. Vogt has been a disappointment on the whole this season, but he has perked up at the plate over the past few days. He’s batting .304 (7-for-23) with two homers, a double, six RBI, and six walks over his last seven games
May 26 - 10:59 PM

Stephen Vogt went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Vogt doubled home a run against Chase De Jong in the fourth inning. It was his sixth double of the season. The veteran backstop has struggled to a .229/.272/.375 triple-slash across 99 at-bats, but has shown vague signs of life of late, with five hits in his last three games, including a home run on Monday.
May 17 - 1:47 AM

Stephen Vogt hit his second homer and walked Monday against the Mariners.

The A's sent Bruce Maxwell down rather than keep three catchers any longer, but Vogt's margin for error should be pretty small at this point; he hasn't hit since the first half of last year and he doesn't make up for it with top-notch defense. The A's should just be hoping he plays well enough to amass some trade value in July.
May 16 - 1:42 AM

Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the Rangers.

Vogt is in the midst of a 1-for-13 slump and the A's are giving him the night off to clear his head. Bruce Maxwell will start behind the plate and bat eighth against Texas right-hander Nick Martinez.
May 13 - 5:28 PM

Stephen Vogt went 0-for-4 as Oakland's designated hitter in Friday's loss.

Vogt's bat doesn't seem very valuable in the catcher's spot these days, and there's just not much reason to DH him when he needs a day off. He's batting .211/.228/.342 with five RBI in 76 at-bats right now, and he didn't do much in the second half of last year, either.
