Stephen Vogt sent down to Triple-A
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt was optioned down to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday. Vogt enjoyed a solid spring, batting .364/.429/.659 with three homers and 12 RBI over 44 at-bats.

"Now, is he going to be here at some point in time this year? I don’t see how he can’t be. But very difficult today," manager Bob Melvin said.

Stephen Vogt may not make 25-man roster despite hot spring
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt has opened Cactus League play by going 9 for 18 with two walks, two doubles, one triple, two runs and four RBI in seven games, but the A's may not have room to carry him on the opening-day roster, MLB.com reports.

"Obviously, I want to make the team, but at the end of the day, whatever the decision is, I'll be ready when they need me," Vogt told MLB.com. "If I start at Triple-A, so be it. If there's anything I've learned from my career, it's that any day I get to put a jersey on, I'm happy. I know that sounds cliché, but that's the truth. I'm 29 years old, married with a kid and I still get to play baseball. Every day is a blessing."

Though John Jaso is expected to spend a lot of his time as a designated hitter, he could end up backing up presumed starter Derek Norris while Vogt, who has minor-league options remaining, begins the year in Triple-A. Vogt hit .252/.295/.400 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 135 at-bats with the A's last season.

Athletics' catcher situation could create a win-win scenario
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

When the San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that Stephen Vogt and Derek Norris will likely platoon at catcher this season for the Athletics, leaving John Jaso to serve frequently as the designated hitter, the news hardly set the Fantasy world on fire. While Jaso's shift away from catching won't have an impact in shallower leagues, it's a noteworthy development for some standard mixed league owners and all deep league owners.

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.

Stephen Vogt should be on radar in two-catcher leagues
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Stephen Vogt raised his profile with a game-winning hit in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers on Saturday, but he could be more than a one-hit wonder for Fantasy owners in 2014. Once John Jaso went down with a concussion in late July, the Athletics entrusted Vogt as their primary catcher, starting him in 36 games from July 26 on.

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.

Stephen Vogt drives in game-winner
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt showed some late game heroics as he drove in the game-winning run during Saturday's Game 2 win over the Tigers in the American League Division Series.

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.
