Top Daniel Vogelbach News

  • Daniel Vogelbach: Let go by Milwaukee

    Vogelbach was non-tendered by the Brewers on Tuesday.

    The 28-year-old was overtaken as the Brewers' primary first baseman by Rowdy Tellez, so the team opted not to tender him a contract for 2022. Vogelbach hit .219/.349/.381 with nine home runs, 24 RBI and 30 runs scored in 258 plate appearances last season.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Hammers walkoff grand slam

    Vogelbach hit a walkoff grand slam in Sunday's 6-5 win over St. Louis.

    Vogelbach stepped in as a pinch-hitter with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and crushed a walkoff homer off Alex Reyes, his eighth long ball of the year. It was his first home run since June 22 after a lengthy stint on the injured list. The lefty slugger is slashing .220/.324/.401 with 20 RBI and 16 extra-base hits this season.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Back from injured list

    Vogelback (hamstring) was activated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Vogelbach will rejoin the big-league roster after spending over two months on the shelf with a strained left hamstring. Rowdy Tellez has claimed the starting role at first base with an .850 OPS since joining the Brewers, so Vogelbach may need to prove he can be a productive piece off the bench during the final month of the season.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Moved to 60-day IL

    Vogelbach (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The move is simply a procedural one to clear a 40-man roster spot, as Vogelbach has been on the IL since June 23 and is eligible to return as soon as Monday. The addition of Rowdy Tellez since Vogelbach got hurt complicates the latter's roster position, so Vogelbach may remain with Triple-A Nashville until rosters expand to 28 in September.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Restarts rehab assignment

    The Brewers returned Vogelbach (hamstring/foot) to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday to resume his rehab assignment.

    While rehabbing the strained left hamstring that has kept him on the shelf since late June, Vogelbach posted a monstrous 1.134 OPS in 11 games with Nashville before he was pulled off the rehab assignment after reportedly picking up a foot injury. Since he'll be heading back to Nashville just under a week later, the foot issue shouldn't be a concern for Vogelbach, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be activated anytime soon. With Rowdy Tellez excelling in a strong-side platoon at first base, the Brewers don't have the luxury of carrying the lefty-hitting Vogelbach on their bench, given that he's limited defensively to first base. Instead, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel speculates the Brewers will let Vogelbach play regularly at Nashville until his rehab window ends Sept. 1, the same day Milwaukee's 26-man active roster expands to 28.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Dealing with foot issue

    Vogelbach (hamstring) is battling a foot injury, which explains why his rehab assignment ended Sunday but didn't result in him being activated from the injured list, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Vogelbach had been rehabbing since late July, as the Brewers have no urgent need to activate him given that Rowdy Tellez and Eduardo Escobar were both acquired while he was out. The exact nature of his foot issue is not yet clear, so it's uncertain when he'll be ready to return.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Rehab assignment ends

    Vogelbach (hamstring) rejoined the Brewers on Sunday after completing a rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville, but he remains on the 10-day injured list.

    Vogelbach looks to have made a full recovery from a strained left hamstring after he wrapped up a two-week rehab assignment at Nashville, during which he posted a monstrous 1.134 OPS and a 12:7 BB:K over 11 games. Before the Brewers placed him on the IL on June 23, Vogelbach had been filling the strong side of a platoon at first base, but the club has since acquired Rowdy Tellez and Eduardo Escobar to serve as left- and right-handed options at the position. With that in mind, Vogelbach's role is currently in flux, and the Brewers could be forced to designate him for assignment if the team doesn't have room for him on the bench.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Rehab assignment going as planned

    Vogelbach (hamstring) has gone 10-for-27 (.370) with two home runs and five RBI through 10 games in his rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville.

    The Brewers wanted Vogelbach to spend some time at the minor-league level to get his swing back, and he has certainly accomplished that. Vogelbach was starting regularly at first base at the time of his injury, but it is tough to envision him reprising that role when his rehab stint comes to a close, as Rowdy Tellez joined the club during his absence and has posted a .993 OPS over 26 games.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Starting rehab assignment Friday

    Vogelbach (hamstring) will report to Triple-A Nashville to begin a rehab assignment Friday.

    Vogelbach has been on the shelf for just over a month with the strained left hamstring, so the Brewers will likely keep him on the rehab assignment at least through the weekend while he works to get his timing back at the plate following the layoff. Before sustaining the injury, Vogelbach had been serving as Milwaukee's primary starting first baseman against right-handed pitching, but the recent trade acquisitions of Rowdy Tellez and Eduardo Escobar could put his role in flux. Vogelbach and Tellez in particular appear to be redundant as lefty-hitting power bats who can only play first base, so expect one of the two to lose his spot on the active roster once Vogelbach is reinstated. Tellez is the likelier candidate of the two to be sent out, given that he still has a minor-league option remaining.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Nearing rehab assignment

    Vogelbach (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment next week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Vogelbach was given a six-week timeline when he strained his left hamstring in late June. Beginning a rehab assignment next week should keep him right on schedule. Exactly what his role will be upon his return is unclear, as the Brewers acquired fellow left-handed first baseman Rowdy Tellez in a trade with Toronto in early July.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Hits on field Thursday

    Vogelbach (hamstring) hit on the field ahead of Thursday's game against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Vogelbach is slated to miss approximately six weeks after he suffered a significant hamstring strain in late June. While the 28-year-old still has several hurdles to clear in terms of running and fielding, he called his hitting session Thursday a good step forward in his recovery.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Out for six weeks

    Vogelbach's hamstring strain is expected to keep him out for approximately six weeks, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers called Vogelbach's injury "significant" after he left Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, and it's now clear just how significant it is. The given timeline means he won't be back until early August. The Brewers recalled the struggling Keston Hiura to take his place at first base.

  • Brewers' Daniel Vogelbach: Placed on injured list

    Vogelbach (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

    Vogelbach exited Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks with a hamstring strain, and manager Craig Counsell called the injury "significant." Keston Hiura was recalled by Milwaukee in a corresponding move and should serve as the primary first baseman in Vogelbach's absence. A better idea of the 28-year-old's return timetable could be known once the results of his MRI are revealed.
