  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Sitting against southpaw

    Vogelbach isn't starting Friday's game against the Phillies.

    Vogelbach went 4-for-9 with two doubles, four RBI, a run and three walks over his last two games but will be on the bench for the second time in the last three matchups with left-hander Ranger Suarez on the mound Friday. Darin Ruf will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Drives in three Wednesday

    Vogelbach went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-2 win over the Reds.

    Getting the start at DH and batting cleanup, Vogelbach continues to provide the Mets with thunder they'd been lacking all season from their designated hitters. In 15 games since being traded from the Pirates, the 29-year-old has gone 15-for-44 (.341) with four doubles, two homers and 10 RBI. He'll likely be limited to the strong side of a platoon down the stretch, but Vogelbach's track record indicates he'll be able to stay hot longer if he avoids facing southpaws -- coming into Wednesday, he had a .935 OPS against RHP and a .415 OPS against LHP in 2022.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Goes deep again Thursday

    Vogelbach went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 6-4 win over Atlanta.

    Vogelbach went back-to-back with Pete Alonso in the third inning. With a homer in each of the last two games, Vogelbach is starting to flex his power for the Mets. He's gone 10-for-30 (.333) in 10 contests since he was traded from the Pirates. For the season, the 29-year-old slugger is slashing .240/.354/.449 with 14 homers, 39 RBI, 33 runs scored and 12 doubles in 85 games between the two teams.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Hits grand slam in win

    Vogelbach went 2-for-5 with a grand slam in Wednesday's 9-5 victory over the Nationals.

    Vogelbach's first home run for his new team turned out to be a grand slam that scored Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte and Pete Alonso. It came in the fifth inning and put the Mets up 6-0. It was home run No. 13 this season for the designated hitter and his first since July 10. In nine games since joining the Mets, Vogelbach is 8-for-21 with a .971 OPS.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Not in Monday's lineup

    Vogelbach is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

    Left-hander Patrick Corbin will start Monday for the Nationals, so Vogelbach will open on the bench and J.D. Davis will serve as the designated hitter. As things stand, it looks like the two will work in a platoon at that position, with Vogelbach getting the favorable side against right-handed starting pitchers.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Two hits from cleanup spot

    Vogelbach went 2-for-4 with a run scored in a 9-3 win over the Marlins on Sunday.

    Vogelbach's fantasy value rose considerably with his trade to the Mets, and on Sunday he found himself batting cleanup for one of the best offenses in the NL. He tallied two hits to reward Buck Showalter for the vote of confidence. Since coming over from the Pirates, Vogelbach has raised his batting average by nine points to .237 in only six games.

  • Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Traded to Mets

    Vogelbach was traded to the Mets in exchange for reliever Colin Holderman on Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The 29-year-old has produced a .228/.338/.430 slash line this year while adding 12 homers, 34 RBI and 29 runs over 237 at-bats in 75 games with the Pirates. Vogelbach should factor into the DH mix for his new club, especially with Dominic Smith (ankle) on the shelf, while also occasionally spelling Pete Alonso at first base.

    Vogelbach will sit Thursday against the Marlins.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Goes to bench Tuesday

    Vogelbach is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Since lefty Daniel Castano is on the hill and the lefty-hitting Vogelbach started in each of the previous three games, manager Derek Shelton likely viewed Tuesday as a good opportunity to give Vogelbach a breather. Yoshi Tsutsugo will serve as the Pirates' designated hitter.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Remains productive

    Vogelbach went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Sunday against the Brewers.

    Even with the return of Kevin Newman and Yoshi Tsutsugo, Vogelbach has remained a regular in the Pittsburgh lineup. He's dictated that with his performance, as he's maintained a .355 average with two home runs, eight RBI and three runs scored across nine games in July. For the season, Vogelbach has 12 homers with a .241/.339/.459 line across 254 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Sitting Game 1 on Thursday

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Hits 11th home run

    Vogelbach went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-2 win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Vogelbach joined teammate Jack Suwinski in going deep off Jameson Taillon for his 11th long ball of the season. The 29-year-old designated hitter is coming off a poor couple of months at the plate. He hit .192 in June and .164 in May, with the only silver lining being the seven home runs he hit over that stretch. He is now riding a six-game hitting streak, but expectations may not be very high for the career .214 hitter.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Smacks 10th homer

    Vogelbach went 1-for-3 with two walks and a solo home run Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Vogelbach took Paolo Espino yard in the fourth inning to record his 10th home run of the season. It was his third homer in his last 11 games, and he's also tallied seven RBI and eight runs scored in that span. Vogelbach has been locked into the designated hitter role against right-handed pitching, though the Pirates lineup remains fluid so he'll likely need to keep hitting to retain consistent playing time.
