Melvin: Athletics holding Stephen Vogt out of early spring games
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Catcher Stephen Vogt won't be playing in the early part of the Athletics' Cactus League schedule.
A's manager Bob Melvin told John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group that Vogt still isn't at 100 percent after offseason foot surgery.
Vogt hit .279 with nine home runs and 35 RBI last season.
Stephen Vogt might not catch early on

|(2/8/15) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt, who's coming off right foot surgery, might not catch spring training games initially but will catch bullpen sessions, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. This season Vogt is expected to share time behind the plate with Josh Phegley.
Vogt batted .279 with nine homers and 35 RBI in 269 at-bats last year.
A's catcher Vogt (foot) expects to be ready for spring training
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt, who had surgery on his right foot in mid-October, was cleared to start running last week and expects to be ready when spring training opens in February, according to the Bay Area News Group.
“There is soreness, but there is no pain, so that’s a huge improvement for me,’’ Vogt said. “I played in pain for the last three months of the year, and that’s gone. So even with the soreness, I’m feeling good physically."
Last season, Vogt was part of a three-man rotation at catcher with John Jaso and Derek Norris. However, both players have been traded, so now Vogt will share playing time behind the plate with Josh Phegley.
“In losing Norris and Jaso, those are two friends of mine,’’ Vogt said. “We all fed off each other. So it will affect the team. On a personal level, I’m excited to get a chance to catch.’’
Vogt hit .279 with two triples, nine home runs, 10 doubles and 35 RBI in 84 games last season.
A's C Stephen Vogt expects to be ready for opening day
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt believes he'll be ready for opening day, according to MLB.com.
Vogt had foot surgery in October, but had his walking boot removed Thursday. Vogt admitted that he may not be 100 percent by spring training, but said he expects to be ready for opening day. After playing multiple positions due to the injury last season, Vogt said he's eager to get behind the plate again.
The 30-year-old Vogt hit .279/.321/.431 over 269 at-bats last year.
Stephen Vogt set for Oct. 14 foot surgery
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/8/14) Athletics first baseman Stephen Vogt will undergo surgery on his right foot on Oct. 14, MLB.com reports.
Vogt was expected to undergo a procedure to repair a plantar plate tear in the foot but wanted to seek a second opinion before going through with the surgery. He hit .279/.321/.431 with nine home runs and 35 RBI in 269 at-bats.
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.
