Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics' lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Vogt didn't start Wednesday's game either but is listed on the lineup card as a bench option, which implies that he's healthy. Josh Phegley will catch for right-hander Cesar Valdez. Vogt has hit .244 with one homer in the early going.
Apr 20 - 7:26 PM

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

Vogt went hitless in his two trips to the plate on Tuesday and is batting just .244 with a .262 on-base percentage through 42 total plate appearances this season. The right-handed-hitting Josh Phegley will start at catcher and bat sixth Wednesday versus Rangers left-hander Martin Perez.
Apr 19 - 12:52 PM

Stephen Vogt was hitless in two trips to the plate Tuesday versus the Rangers.

Vogt got the start in the designated hitter spot for the second straight day as Bruce Maxwell did the catching again. A's manager Bob Melvin elected to pinch-hit for him in the sixth inning, and it paid off when Ryon Healy delivered an RBI single. Vogt is hitting only .244/.262/.415 so far.
Apr 19 - 1:10 AM

Stephen Vogt is absent from the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off for Vogt and also sitting Yonder Alonso. They have Josh Phegley catching and Adam Rosales in left field, with Khris Davis serving as the designated hitter and Ryon Healy covering first base.
Apr 9 - 11:48 AM

Stephen Vogt went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

Vogt's double was the only extra-base hit that the A's secured in the 5-0 loss. He swatted a career-high 30 two-baggers last season. The veteran backstop holds some value in two-catcher formats, but those in traditional mixed leagues probably will not have much use for him in 2017.
Apr 6 - 1:53 AM

Stephen Vogt drilled two hits Wednesday in the Athletics’ Cactus League win over the White Sox.

He plated two with a first-inning double and kept the engine running with a leadoff single in the third. Vogt ended the day by grounding out in his last two at-bats. The 31-year-old has had a decent spring, hitting .324 over 34 at-bats. He’s slated to split catching duties with Josh Phegley but should see time at DH as well.
Mar 22 - 8:02 PM

Stephen Vogt has been held out of Cactus League action the last few days due to a heel issue.

But he is scheduled to DH on Tuesday and return to catching Thursday. Vogt should be fine for the start of the 2017 regular season.
Mar 13 - 12:13 PM

Athletics and C Stephen Vogt avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.965 million contract.

Vogt made the All-Star team for the second straight season in 2016, hitting .251/.305/.406 with 14 dingers for the A's. He was eligible for arbitration for the first time.
Jan 13 - 2:47 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin has spoken to Stephen Vogt about the possibility of batting leadoff next season.

Vogt isn't fast and has a career .314 on-base percentage, although he does usually see a good number of pitches. A lot can happen between now an spring training, of course, so there's a pretty decent chance Vogt won't be an option for the spot by that point. He'd be all for it, though. "I’d love it," said Vogt. "I feel like I’m someone who can adapt to any role I’m put in. If my job is to see pitches, get on base, I can adapt my game to do that."

Stephen Vogt finished 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI to lead the Athletics to a 14-5 win over the Royals on Thursday.

Vogt tallied a two-RBI double in the third inning and collected an RBI with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth, but those were just the precursor to his two-run homer in the sixth. The big offensive night gives him 48 RBI and 12 homers this year, and Vogt is hitting .261/.310/.418 overall.

Stephen Vogt went 3-for-3 with two walks, two RBI and two runs scored as the Athletics crushed the Royals 16-3 on Monday.

Vogt came in just 5-for-31 this month, so he needed this. It's his first three-hit game since June 24, and he scored as many runs tonight as in his previous 19 games combined.

Stephen Vogt finished 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI against the White Sox on Friday.

Vogt slugged a solo homer off James Shields in the fifth inning before knocking home another run with a double in the sixth. The 31-year-old is quite a ways behind his power pace from last season and hasn’t shown nearly as much patience. He’s batting .272/.318/.433 with 10 homers and 36 RBI through 98 games on the year.

Vogt had just one RBI in 15 games (13 starts) before driving in two runs tonight. He hadn't scored a run since July 19.
Tue, Aug 9, 2016 12:48:00 AM

Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Indians.

Nothing more than a routine day off for the hard-hitting backstop. Bruce Maxwell will start behind the dish for the A's and bat ninth against Josh Tomlin and the Tribe.
