Vogt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Vogt recently had a stretch of five consecutive starts -- four of which came as a designated hitter -- but he's expected to see most of his time behind the plate moving forward after top DH Jed Lowrie rejoined the lineup Saturday. Lowrie will start again Sunday, leaving no room in the lineup for Vogt once again.... See More ... See Less

Vogt is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogt went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and two walks in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Solo homer in win
Vogt went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's victory over the Guardians.
Vogt launched a solo shot in the eighth inning after scoring on a throwing error in the seventh. This was the catcher's third game back after spending time on the IL for a sprained MCL. He went hitless in his first two games back but made up for it with three hits in Saturday's game. Perhaps Vogt will continue to improve as he gets more time at the plate.... See More ... See Less

Vogt (knee) went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Tacoma on Sunday.

Vogt (knee) took part in full baseball activities before Monday's series opener against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The veteran backstop was able to take batting practice and participate in both running and fielding drills for the first time since going on the injured list April 21. Despite the encouraging news, manager Mark Kotsay remains non-committal regarding a possible return date for Vogt, who will almost certainly require a minor-league rehab assignment before activation....

The veteran backstop appeared in his fifth game of the season and delivered with the biggest hit of the day for the Athletics.

Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Makes first spring start
Vogt made his first Cactus League start in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday, going 1-for-3.
Vogt's recent Athletics homecoming after three-plus seasons away serves the purpose of giving Sean Murphy a quality veteran backup behind the dish and a couple of Oakland's pitchers a familiar battery mate in the process. That was the case Tuesday, with A's starter Sean Manaea throwing to Vogt for the first time since 2017. Vogt put together a solid .263 average and .804 OPS as recently as 2019 with the Giants, but this season, he'll look to bounce back from the abysmal .188/.274/.319 slash line he's produced across 104 games over the last two seasons....
