"It's huge," said manager Bob Melvin to MLB.com. "We have some key guys, your leadoff guy and three guy out of the lineup, and somebody's got to pick it up, and we got a couple of guys struggling a little bit. And Reddick and Vogt have been fantastic.

"[Vogt] deserves the time he's getting. Production-wise, he's probably one of the best producers in the league."

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.

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.

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."
