  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Concludes career with homer

    Vogt went 1-for-2 with a walk, two runs scored and a solo home run Wednesday against the Angels.

    Vogt led off the seventh inning with a home run, his seventh of the season. It was a nice moment to conclude Vogt's career, as he's set to retire after racking up 2,598 plate appearances across 10 seasons. He ended his final campaign with a .161/.241/.321 line to go along with 18 runs scored and 23 RBI.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Empties bases with triple

    Vogt went 1-for-4 with a three-run triple and a run in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

    The veteran, who'd just announced he'll be retiring at the end of the season, promptly delivered his first triple of the season with the bases loaded in the third inning to erase a 3-0 deficit. Vogt's timely three-bagger snapped an 0-for-14 slump that had encompassed his previous seven games, and it afforded him his first RBI since Sept. 10.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Retiring after season

    Vogt announced Thursday he will retire at the end of the 2022 season.

    The 37-year-old catcher, who has started seeing more time at first base and designated hitter, has logged over eight full years of MLB service time across 10 total seasons. Vogt has a career .239/.302/.406 slash line with 81 home runs and a 3.4 fWAR over 785 games. It is fitting that he is currently a member of the A's, as that's where he played for roughly half his career, including his peak seasons in 2014 and 2015. He was known for being an excellent clubhouse presence and being great at working with younger players, so perhaps he will have a future in player development.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Sitting Friday

    Vogt isn't in the lineup for Friday's game against Houston.

    Vogt will be on the bench for the third time in the last four games. The 37-year-old has seen most of his action at DH lately, but he's batting just .150 (3-for-20) in September.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Retreats to bench

    Vogt isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

    Although right-hander Dane Dunning is on the mound for Texas on Wednesday, Vogt will sit for a second consecutive game. Dermis Garcia is starting at first base and batting sixth.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Sits against lefty

    Vogt is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

    Vogt has been seeing an increase in playing time at first base and designated hitter over the past week, but he will sit out Tuesday against southpaw Cole Ragans. Dermis Garcia will take his place at first base and bat fifth in the order.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Opportunities picking up

    Vogt will serve as Oakland's designated hitter and No. 6 batter in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Vogt will be making his fourth start in five games and appears to have at least temporarily settled into a near-everyday role at the expense of Dermis Garcia, who is sitting for the third contest in a row. Since the All-Star break, Vogt owns a modest .644 OPS, so it wouldn't be surprising if his run of steady playing time proves to be short-lived.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Multi-hit effort in loss

    Vogt went 2-for-3 with a RBI double in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.

    Vogt's first-inning double brought home Vimael Machin to open the scoring on the night. The 37-year-old has shown signs of life at the plate recently despite intermittent playing time, hitting .333 (9-for-27) with a trio of two-baggers, a home run and six RBI across his last 11 games. His left-handed swing and ability to fill in at catcher, first base and designated hitter all open up a solid amount of paths to starts, but the Athletics' interest in evaluating young players should continue to cap Vogt's game appearances the rest of the way.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Comes through with game-tying homer

    Vogt entered Saturday's extra-innings win over the Yankees as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the 10th inning and hit a game-tying two-run home run.

    Vogt stepped into the batter's box in Jonah Bride's stead with one out and Chad Pinder on third base, and the veteran delivered a 395-foot shot to right off a 1-0 changeup from reliever Ron Marinaccio. The blast tied the game at 2-2 and extended a brief but encouraging spell of offensive success for Vogt, who's now 4-for-13 with Saturday's homer, four RBI, two walks, a hit-by-pitch and two runs in his last five games.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Rare multi-hit effort Tuesday

    Vogt went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in a loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.

    The struggling veteran offered some rare offensive production that included only his second multi-hit effort of the season, the first having come back on June 11. Vogt drew the start at first base Tuesday, but he's made the overwhelming majority of his appearances at either catcher or designated hitter while logging only sporadic playing time overall.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Hits fifth home run

    Vogt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 4-2 win over the Astros on Wednesday.

    Vogt got the start Wednesday with Oakland's No. 1 catcher Sean Murphy taking the day off. The veteran backstop teamed up with Stephen Piscotty for back-to-back solo shots off Cristian Javier in the second inning. Vogt has played in 33 games this season and is slashing .153/.227/.329 in 85 at-bats.

  • Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Clutch as in-game replacement

    Vogt entered Sunday's win over the Astros as a pinch hitter in the top of the sixth inning and remained in the game at first base, going 1-for-1 with an RBI sacrifice fly and a run-scoring single.

    The veteran is on pace for his third straight season with a sub-.200 batting average, but Sunday brought him a rare taste of offensive success. Vogt made clutch contributions in each of his two plate appearances, with his sixth-inning sacrifice fly bringing home Seth Brown to knot the game at 3-3. The 37-year-old then followed up with an eighth-inning single that plated Chad Pinder with what would prove to be the game-winning run. Five of Vogt's nine RBI this season have come in the last six games.
