Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Stephen Vogt (foot) won't catch at the beginning of the Cactus League schedule.
That's been the anticipation. Vogt also will not play first base or the outfield at all during spring training as he works his way back from foot surgery. However, the A's are just being cautious here, as they fully expect him to be ready for Opening Day. Vogt is set to serve as the club's primary catcher in 2015. Feb 20 - 12:30 PM

Stephen Vogt (foot) could initially be held out of catching during Cactus League games this spring.

Vogt is working his way back from foot surgery and might be limited to catching bullpen sessions for a while. He's at the top of the Athletics' depth chart at catcher, so obviously he can't wait too long before catching in games. Vogt isn't known for his defense behind the plate and figures to see a good amount of playing time at positions other than catcher in 2015.

Stephen Vogt had the walking boot removed from his surgically-repaired right foot Thursday.

Vogt had surgery in October to repair the plantar plates in his foot. It's an injury he dealt with throughout the second half of the season and he noted Thursday that it's the first time since July he can put a shoe on his right foot and walk without any pain. Vogt will be fine for the start of spring training.

Stephen Vogt (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to return for Tuesday's series opener against the Rangers.

Vogt has been able to take swings in the batting cages in recent days, but is still bothered too much by his sore ankle to run the bases at full strength. Even if he does return at some point next week, he is likely to play only sporadically which makes it difficult to trust him in weekly formats.
