When the San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that
Jaso, who was out due to a concussion from late July through the postseason in 2013, should play more often and be less vulnerable to injury as a DH, and the extra plate appearances catapult him into relevance in two-catcher mixed leagues. As a left-handed hitter, Vogt is expected to assume the larger role in the catching platoon with Norris, and he has enough power to be worth a pick or a few dollars in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats. His limited upside in terms of batting average and on-base percentage does keep him from mattering in standard and shallow mixed leagues.
Norris will fill a similar role to the one he had over the second half of last season, so of the A's catching trio, he is the only one who doesn't stand to gain much Fantasy value. Owners can relegate him to AL-only leagues.
During that stretch, Vogt ranked 23rd among catchers in Rotisserie value, as he hit .265 with three home runs, 14 RBI and 17 runs. As a flyball hitter with decent contact skills, Vogt can chip in with double digits in home runs if he gets fairly regular at-bats, and he shouldn't hurt owners much, if at all, with his batting average.
With Jaso entering free agency, Vogt has a chance to get playing time next season, and as he showed down the stretch this season, he could be a viable Fantasy No. 2 catcher.
With the bases loaded, Vogt singled in the game's only run with no outs. It was his only hit of the night. He finished 1 for 4 with an RBI in a 1-0 victory. He has gone 1 for 7 through the first two games of the series.
Vogt went 3 for 6 with his fourth HR of the season. He went deep in the fourth inning for a two-run shot. He added an RBI single to right, also coming in the 10-run fourth inning.
The backstop scored twice in the game and is batting .273. The 28-year-old Vogt has gone 5 for 12 over his last three games and has two homers in his last seven with five RBI.
"I feel much better," said Vogt. "Obviously it hurts on touch, but, really, it's just a knot on my head. Nothing I can't play with."
