A's hold Josh Reddick, Stephen Vogt out of Friday's lineup


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Athletics kept outfielder Josh Reddick and catcher Stephen Vogt out of Friday's lineup against the Astros, the team announced.

It appears the two were given the night off in order to rest. Cody Ross and Josh Phegley will replace Reddick and Vogt in the starting lineup Friday.

The Athletics are the favorites (-130) over the Astros on Friday.


Athletics C Stephen Vogt hits three-run home run Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt connected on a three-run home run to help lead the Athletics to a 6-3 win over the Angels on Monday.

Vogt was slotted into the No. 3 spot with second baseman Ben Zobrist out and rewarded manager Bob Melvin's decision with the third-inning home run off starter Matt Shoemaker.

"The nice part for me is, I've hit in every spot in the order except for leadoff since I've been here with the A's, so I've kind of experienced going everywhere," Vogt said after the game, per MLB.com. "What I'm really learning is, it doesn't matter where you take your at-bat in the order, take it the same way you would take it in any other slot."

The home run was his only hit for the game. Vogt finished the game 1 for 3 with one walk and has hit .366/.435/.780 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 41 at-bats.

The A's are considering starting the lefty-swinging Vogt against a lefty Tuesday due to his recent hot performance, the Contra Costa Times reports.


Athletics' Ben Zobrist out of lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Athletics second baseman Ben Zobrist is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.

Zobrist came out of Sunday's game due to knee soreness and is being held out of his regular role one day later. Zobrist is hoping rest and cortisone will alleviate the issue and doesn't think it is as bad as the one that required surgery, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I know it's not normal, so in that regard, it's a little disconcerting," Zobrist said, per MLB.com. "I'm disappointed right now that I'm not in the lineup, and I definitely want to feel 100 percent, and I'm not there... We'll see how it reacts."

"If it reacts well and I feel I can really move out there and contribute, then I'll give it a go. If not, then we'll have to give it more time."

With Zobrist sidelined, catcher Stephen Vogt will move to the No. 3 spot in the lineup, while Eric Sogard will draw the start at second base and bat eighth.

The Athletics are underdogs (+135) against the Angels on the road Monday.

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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"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.
