Stephen Vogt went 3-for-5 and scored a run in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

Vogt has logged three hits in three of his last four games. Not coincidentally, the Athletics have won all four games. Barring a tremendous slump or an injury, the 30-year-old should wind up on the AL All-Star roster as he's batting a healthy .308/.401/.552 with 13 home runs, 53 RBI (leading the league), and 37 runs scored.

Stephen Vogt, who missed Tuesday's game with a sore elbow, went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Vogt played first base while Josh Phegley, who went 2-for-4 with a homer and a walk, did the catching. Vogt is expected back behind the plate tomorrow, though as well as Phegley is hitting, it'd made sense to let Vogt DH or play first base more frequently. Billy Butler can take a spot on the bench if he doesn't step it up.
