Athletics' Stephen Vogt: 'I'm moving well behind the plate'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt has been back in the team's lineup for a little over the week, but his work behind the plate has alleviated his concerns coming back from October foot surgery, the Bay Area News Group reports.

"This time has taken a load off my mind," Vogt said Tuesday morning. "I knew I was feeling good, but there are a lot of little things you don’t know about how you’ll do until you just get back there and do them. And it weighs on you."

Vogt is just 1 for 12 with one walk in five games this spring but feels good about his work behind the plate.

"I’m moving well behind the plate," Vogt said. "I’m keeping my weight back. I’m doing all the things I need to do. Now do I have the rhythm I’d want in the regular season? No, but I can feel it coming. Being behind the plate feels natural, which is one reason I know I’ll be ready once the season starts. I haven’t done this in eight months, but doing it now feels right."

A's catcher Vogt (foot) expects to be ready for spring training


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) 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.

Stephen Vogt probably won't be back Tuesday


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Athletics first baseman Stephen Vogt, who has been out since Sept. 3 with an ankle injury, is having his timetable pushed back again, according to MLB.com. After being unable to return as hoped for the Athletics' last series at Seattle, he's now unlikely to play Tuesday against the Rangers and isn't particularly close to returning.

"[Saturday] he was a little bit sore, based on what they had him do the day before," manager Bob Melvin said. "But I said from the beginning this may be a while. I'm almost positive he won't be available the day we get back, and a lot of times with these type of things, there is one day that maybe gets you going in the right direction. He's not there yet."

Melvin added that he hopes Vogt will be able to return before the Athletics go on the road again Sept. 5, but that even in an emergency situation, he wouldn't be able to play right now.

Vogt has been swinging a bat, but the Athletics want him to be able to run at full speed before returning.
