Athletics' Stephen Vogt in lineup Tuesday vs. Astros
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt is in the lineup Tuesday, batting sixth in his team's matchup with the Astros.
Vogt rolled his ankle Monday but was able to stay in the game. He said Monday that while the ankle is a little swollen, he has no issue playing on it, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Vogt has hit .348/.423/.609 with one home run and five RBI in 23 at-bats.
The Athletics are underdogs (-102) against the Astros Tuesday.
Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt not worried about ankle injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt rolled his ankle in Monday's game against the Astros, reports CSN California.
Vogt said after the game the injury got better after a couple of innings, but he is not concerned about it moving forward. Vogt went 1 for 4 in the game and is now hitting .348 23 at-bats this season.
Athletics hit by illness, including Sonny Gray, Kendall Graveman
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Manager Bob Melvin said that the Athletics have been laid low by a 10-day cold bug that has been working its way through the clubhouse. Among the players that have already had it are Sonny Gray, Fernando Abad, Stephen Vogt and Ike Davis.
Kendall Graveman was fighting the illness when he made his first start, Melvin said. Graveman gave up seven earned runs in three and a third innings.
A's tweak lineup vs. Mariners, Mark Canha batting second
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Athletics left fielder Mark Canha will hit second in Friday night's game against the Mariners, according to MLB.com.
A day before in the series-finale against the Rangers, Canha hit seventh. This season, Canha is already 4 of 9 with two double and four RBI. Catcher Stephen Vogt will move down the lineup and bat seventh.
Shortstop Marcus Semien and second baseman Eric Sogard also switched places from Thursday's lineup. Semien will hit eighth and Sogard ninth.
Athletics C Vogt becomes third different player to hit third in order
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt will become the third different player to hit third in the batting on Thursday against the Rangers, per MLB.com. Manager Bob Melvin went with Sam Fuld in the opener, followed by Eric Sogard in Game 2 and newcomer Cody Ross in Game 3.
"Somebody's got to hit there," Vogt said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. "That's a spot where we're trying to find who the right guy will be."
Mark Canha will hit No. 7 in Vogt's place.
Oakland will face right-hander Nick Martinez on Thursday. Vogt is hitting .429 (3 for 7) with a double, a home run and an RBI to start the season.
After spending the first two months of the season torching Triple-A pitching for a .364 batting average, Stephen Vogt
got the call from the Athletics, and he remained with the team for the rest of the season. Vogt saw time at catcher, in the outfield corners and at designated hitter, but he played mostly at first base. His versatility kept him in the lineup, though batting .279 with nine homers over 269 at-bats didn't hurt either.
Playing time status: Vogt missed much of September with a sprained ankle and had surgery on his foot in October. He is expected to be ready for the start of spring training. Vogt could play a similar role in 2015, though between the acquisitions of designated hitter Billy Butler and first baseman Ike Davis and the departures of catchers Derek Norris and John Jaso, he appears set to spend a lot of time behind the plate.
2015 Outlook: In CBSSports.com leagues with default settings, Vogt will begin the season only eligible at first base. It shouldn't be long before he regains catcher eligibility, so he is worth drafting in two-catcher mixed leagues.
