Vogt started in left field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Atlanta. Vogt made his first start in the outfield since 2016, and just his third overall dating back to 2014. With Buster Posey back from the concussion injured list, manager Bruce Bochy is trying to find unique ways to get his backup catcher's bat in the lineup more often. This doesn't appear to be a platoon situation of any sort, but the occasional start in left in addition to usual backup duties could get Vogt in the lineup enough for him to at least get on the radar in deeper two-catcher formats.
Vogt will start at catcher and bat sixth Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Vogt benefited from a workload spike when Buster Posey was sidelined with a concussion, but the 34-year-old transitioned back into a reserve role when Posey was activated this weekend. Posey will get a routine maintenance day Sunday after back-to-back starts, allowing Vogt to rejoin the lineup in the series finale.
Vogt will be on the bench Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Vogt has started three of six games since Buster Posey landed on the injured list with a concussion. Aramis Garcia gets the start Wednesday. One of the two could be removed from the roster soon, with Posey not expected to miss much more time.
Vogt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Vogt will take a seat after starting behind the plate in the first two games of the series and reaching base four times between the contests. Erik Kratz will start at catcher Sunday, but Vogt should act as the Giants' primary option at the position until Buster Posey (concussion) is activated from the 7-day injured list.
Vogt is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Though he'll sit out the series finale at Coors Field, Vogt's fantasy outlook improved earlier in day, when the Giants placed top catcher Buster Posey (concussion) on the 7-day injured list. With Posey out of the picture for at least the next week, Vogt should draw regular starts against right-handed pitching. The newly recalled Aramis Garcia should occupy the short end of a platoon behind the plate, with his first start coming Thursday with southpaw Kyle Freeland on the bump for Colorado.
