Vogt was placed on the family medical leave list Saturday. Bruce Maxwell was summoned from Triple-A Nashville to help behind the plate while Vogt is away. By rule, Vogt must miss at least three days and no more than seven days. After collecting eight hits in his first five games coming out of the break, Vogt has gone 0-for-9 in his last two starts.
Vogt is out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Houston. Vogt will sit for the third game in the last six as Matt McBride gets the start behind the dish and bats ninth. Vogt has collected two or more hits in five of his last eight games, slashing .500/.548/.857 with eight runs and seven RBI during that time.
Vogt is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays. Vogt was behind the plate for the first two games of the series, and with lefty J.A. Happ starting for the Blue Jays, there wasn't much incentive for A's manager Bob Melvin to keep Vogt in the lineup. Matt McBride will handle duties behind the plate.
Vogt finshed 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Blue Jays. Vogt was the hero Friday, as he leveled the game at seven with a solo blast to center in the fifth inning before knocking in the game-winning run with a single to center in the seventh. The 31-year-old now has five extra-base hits, five RBI and five runs scored over the last three games and will look to improve upon a lackluster first half for a middling Athletics club.
Vogt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game in Houston, MLB Network's Susan Slusser reports. The A's will go with a righty-heavy lineup in their last game before the All-Star break, as Vogt and Josh Reddick have both been miserable against southpaws this season. Matt McBride will start behind the plate and bat ninth.
