Vogelbach is out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Cardinals. Vogelbach will head to the bench Tuesday with southpaw Kwang Hyun Kim starting for St. Louis. Travis Shaw will move to first base while Pablo Reyes receives the start at the hot corner.
Vogelbach went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 2-1 extra-inning win over Miami. Vogelbach opened the scoring in the fourth inning with a solo shot off Miami ace Sandy Alcantara. The long ball was Vogelbach's first since a two-homer game versus Pittsburgh on April 18. The first baseman has three homers, six RBI, nine runs scored and a .194/.293/.347 slash line in 81 plate appearances. He's likely to continue in a part-time role that sees him often sit against left-handed pitching.
Vogelbach will sit for the second game in a row Saturday against the Marlins. Vogelbach sat against lefty Trevor Rogers on Friday and remains on the bench against another southpaw (Daniel Castano) Saturday. Fellow lefty Billy McKinney will make another start at first base in his absence.
Vogelbach is not in the lineup Friday against lefty Trevor Rogers and the Marlins. The Brewers have faced just four lefties this season, and Vogelbach hasn't been in the lineup against any of them. With Keston Hiura now in the minors, he doesn't have an obvious platoon partner, but it will be fellow lefty Billy McKinney who gets the nod at first base against Rogers.
Vogelbach is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. Vogelbach had picked up starts at first base in each of the past four games, going 1-for-14. The lefty-hitting slugger will head to the bench with southpaw Julio Urias on the bump for the Dodgers, but Vogelbach may have captured a large-side of platoon role for the time being. Keston Hiura will start at first base Sunday, but he was on the bench for the past four games after getting off to a 12-for-75 (.160 average) start to the season.
