Latest News
Stephen Vogt dealing with minor foot injury
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/14) Athletics catcher/outfielder/first baseman Stephen Vogt has been dealing with a minor foot injury that has kept him from seeing time behind the plate in recent weeks, Comcast SportsNet California reports.

Vogt has made seven appearances at first base in his last eight games since last seeing brief action at catcher on July 7. His last start behind the plate came back on July 3. Despite the foot issue, Vogt has been producing with the bat, hitting .392/.436/.608 with two home runs and six RBI in 51 at-bats during July.

Stephen Vogt reaches base four times Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) Athletics utility man Stephen Vogt reached base four times in his team's 10-2 victory over the Orioles.

Vogt singled in the third, doubled in a run in the fifth and singled in the sixth. He finished 3 for 4 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI. He owns a .364/.397/.534 slash line with four homers and 18 RBI in 118 at-bats.
Hitters to start in Week 16
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/14) Need a sleeper hitter for the shortened Fantasy Week 16 (July 18-20)? Stephen Vogt, Adam LaRoche, Martin Prado, Pablo Sandoval, Arismendy Alcantara and Torii Hunter might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

Contact the key for Stephen Vogt
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/15/14) Athletics utility man Stephen Vogt is benefitting from a better contact rate this season.

Vogt doesn't have a large sample to work off, as he's only received 291 plate appearances in the majors. Still, his improvement this season has been significant. After making contact on close to 89 percent of pitches in the strike zone his first two stints in the majors, Vogt has made contact on those pitches nearly 93 percent of the time this year. That's part of the reason he's been able to cut down on his strikeouts early.

There are legitimate questions about whether this will continue. Vogt doesn't have a big sample of work over his career, so trying to judge him based on a small group of at-bats this season seems silly. He's the type of player Fantasy owners might want to ride out in the short term, but it's tough to expect him to be a legitimate breakout star moving forward. 

Stephen Vogt an overlooked gem at catcher
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/14/14) Granted, anyone who expects Stephen Vogt to hit .358 the rest of the way is sure to be disappointed, but just because he isn't this good doesn't mean he isn't good. After 109 at-bats, I think he's proven he has something to offer in Fantasy.

I discuss it in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, where I review the recent changes to my rest-of-season rankings, but to recap here, my reasoning is two-fold.

First, Vogt was always a plus hitter in the minors, batting .305 with an .833 OPS over parts of eight seasons. Yes, those numbers were aided by his stay at Triple-A Sacramento of the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League, but he spent most of those eight years in the Rays organization, where he also hit for average and power.

Second, the Athletics don't seem the least bit interested in taking him out of the lineup, playing him out of position in right field and at first base just so they don't lose his bat. With all their moving parts, why would they give a 29-year-old career minor-leaguer (more or less) preferential treatment unless they believed in him?

So if Vogt isn't this good, how good is he? Maybe sort of a hybrid between Kurt Suzuki and Wilson Ramos. I rank him 15th at catcher, but he's one of the many bunched together who could conceivably finish in the top 12.
