Stephen Vogt went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI as the Athletics fell to the Orioles in extra innings on Friday.

Vogt's two-run shot off Ubaldo Jimenez in the fifth inning gave the A's an early 4-0 lead, but they were unable to hold on. Vogt also drew a walk in the ballgame, reaching base safely four times in six trips. Even with his recent slump, he's still having a terrific season offensively, slashing .263/.344/.455 with 16 homers and 62 RBI.

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

Vogt took Corey Kluber out to right field in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie, and it proved to be the only offense for either side. The All-Star catcher now has 14 home runs, 56 RBI, and a .287/.374/.498 batting line.

Jul 10 - 4:38 PM

Stephen Vogt (wrist) is in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

Vogt was expected to get the day off after he left Friday's game with a bruised wrist after he was hit by a pitch. He was able to avoid any serious injuries though and apparently feels good enough to give it a go on Saturday. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .304/.399/.545 with 13 homers and a league-leading 53 RBI.
Jun 27 - 12:41 PM

X-rays on Stephen Vogt's wrist came back negative, and he's day-to-day after being hit by a pitch in Friday's game.

Jun 27 - 1:36 AM

Stephen Vogt left Friday's game in the ninth inning after getting hit on the right hand/wrist by a pitch.

Vogt was in quite a lot of pain, so this could be a DL-type situation. Josh Phegley would catch regularly if that's the case.

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.
Jun 25 - 5:41 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 11:12 PM

Stephen Vogt (elbow) is back in the A's starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Rangers.

Vogt sat out of Tuesday's series opener after getting a cortisone shot Sunday for tennis elbow. He is playing first base and hitting third in his return to action.
Jun 24 - 4:14 PM

Stephen Vogt (elbow) expects to return Wednesday.

Vogt got a cortisone shot in his ailing left elbow on Sunday and will be held out of action Tuesday night against the Rangers. He's dealt with a variety of injuries this season, but they've all been pretty minor. The 30-year-old catcher has a .938 OPS, 13 home runs, and 51 RBI in 68 games this season for the Athletics.
