  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Smacks fifth homer

    Vogelbach went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Vogelbach took Daniel Hudson yard in the seventh inning to tally his fifth home run of the season. It was a much-needed knock for Vogelbach, as he entered the game having collected only two hits in his last 25 at-bats. Despite the slow stretch, Vogelbach is in the lineup against nearly every righty the Pirates face, and he has settled into the cleanup spot. Overall, he is hitting .258/.337/.472 with 13 runs scored and 12 RBI across 101 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Sits against southpaw

    Vogelbach will be on the bench Monday against the Dodgers.

    Vogelbach has started against every righty the Pirates have faced this season, and he hasn't been completely prevented from facing lefties, but his off day here against Julio Urias means he's now sat against six out of 10 southpaws so far this year. Bryan Reynolds will rest his legs in the designated hitter spot, with Jake Marisnick starting in center field.

    Vogelbach went 4-for-6 with a home run, a double, three runs scored and two RBI on Thursday against the Nationals.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Sits against another lefty

    Vogelbach will remain on the bench Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Vogelbach led off and served as the designated hitter against a pair of righties to open the season but has now sat against two straight southpaws, including Tuesday's starter Drew Smyly. He owns a career wRC+ of 46 against lefties compared to a 117 wRC+ against righties, so that usage pattern seems likely to continue. Michael Chavis will be the designated hitter this time around.

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Absent from Sunday's lineup

  • Pirates' Daniel Vogelbach: Reaches deal with Pirates

    Vogelbach signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Pirates on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The contract contains a $1.5 million team option for 2023 and an additional $400,000 in performance-based incentives.

    MLB's adoption of the universal designated hitter likely played a major part in Vogelbach earning a spot on the Pirates' 40-man roster, as the 29-year-old has historically been a liability defensively even at first base. With the DH now in place in the National League, Vogelbach should have a clear path to an everyday spot in the lineup against right-handed pitching, provided he can keep his strikeouts in check. For his career, the lefty-hitting Vogelbach has been a well above league-average performer versus righties, slashing .228/.357/.442 (117 wRC+).
