Vogt isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers. Vogt will sit for a second consecutive game in Tuesday's series opener against the Dodgers. Carson Kelly will start at catcher.
Vogt is not in the lineup Sunday against the Giants. Vogt and Carson Kelly have alternate starts behind the plate over the past five games, and that trend continues after Vogt started Saturday and went 0-for-3 with one strikeout.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Vogt and starter Carson Kelly will have an even split behind the plate, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Vogt started Friday, his fifth start in the last seven games, but the manager envisions a more equitable split going forward. "It's going to probably flatten out and be 50/50," Lovullo said. "I just was sorting through that and going through some of the matchups that I liked, and I think there's a lot of familiarity between a pitcher and a catcher that works for both. So, I'll try to continue those relationships, but I also have to be mindful of offensive matchups, and I want to put our catchers in the best position to have a good offensive game as well." Vogt is slashing .188/.250/.406, which is slightly better than Kelly's .167/.268/.278.
Vogt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Padres. Vogt tied the game by knocking in Starling Marte with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. Vogt then added a critical insurance run with his sixth-inning solo shot. It was his first homer of the year, to go with four RBI, two runs scored and a .250 batting average in eight games.
Vogt went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Padres. Vogt was the batterymate for Robbie Ray, but it's uncertain if he's a personal catcher for the left-hander. He was the lone change in the lineup from the first to the second game, replacing Carson Kelly, and batted seventh in the order before he was pinch hit for by Kevin Cron in the seventh inning. Kelly is expected to catch the bulk of games this season.
