Giants' Stephen Vogt: Receives starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt (knee) is starting at catcher and batting second Sunday versus the Brewers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Vogt suffered the knee bruise in the first-half finale last Sunday, but he had an RBI single in a pinch-hit appearance Saturday and is good to rejoin the lineup. The 34-year-old has been a solid backup option behind the plate for the Giants with a .260/.325/.462 slash line in 44 games.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Diagnosed with bruised knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt has been diagnosed with a left knee contusion following Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear as to when Vogt suffered the injury, but he did go for precautionary X-rays, which came back negative. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward, though he will have the next four days off to recover before Friday's series opener in Milwaukee.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Crushes three-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Vogt provided some late fireworks for the Giants when he deposited a low-and-in fastball from Greg Holland into McCovey Cove at Oracle Park. It was the veteran backstop's second homer of the season, and he now boasts a .277/.349/.500 slash line over 106 plate appearances as Buster Posey's backup.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Hits two triples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt went 3-for-4 with two triples, two runs, and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

The two triples represented 18 percent of Vogt's career output in that category. He now has a strong .794 OPS on the season, though he's unlikely to carve out a large role behind the plate in San Francisco while Buster Posey remains healthy.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Returns to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt will resume a backup catcher role with the return of Buster Posey (hamstring) on Wednesday.

Vogt was the primary catcher during Posey's brief injured list stint, going 4-for-18 with a pair of doubles over five starts. The veteran's platoon mate, Aramis Garcia, was optioned back to Triple-A, leaving Vogt as the lone backup to Posey moving forward.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Taking over for Posey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt has taken over as the Giants' primary catcher with Buster Posey (hamstring) sidelined.

Vogt gave way to Aramis Garcia with a southpaw on the mound Wednesday, but the veteran started the Giants' previous two contests (both against righties) and went 3-for-7 with a pair of doubles, two walks and a pair of RBI. The 34-year-old is an offensive-minded backstop who can be a bit streaky at the plate. Based on his recent production, those in deep two-catcher formats as well as those who play daily fantasy may want to take a look at Vogt while Posey is out of action.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Gets start in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt started in left field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Atlanta.

Vogt made his first start in the outfield since 2016, and just his third overall dating back to 2014. With Buster Posey back from the concussion injured list, manager Bruce Bochy is trying to find unique ways to get his backup catcher's bat in the lineup more often. This doesn't appear to be a platoon situation of any sort, but the occasional start in left in addition to usual backup duties could get Vogt in the lineup enough for him to at least get on the radar in deeper two-catcher formats.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Re-enters lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt will start at catcher and bat sixth Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Vogt benefited from a workload spike when Buster Posey was sidelined with a concussion, but the 34-year-old transitioned back into a reserve role when Posey was activated this weekend. Posey will get a routine maintenance day Sunday after back-to-back starts, allowing Vogt to rejoin the lineup in the series finale.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Sitting for Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt will be on the bench Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Vogt has started three of six games since Buster Posey landed on the injured list with a concussion. Aramis Garcia gets the start Wednesday. One of the two could be removed from the roster soon, with Posey not expected to miss much more time.

May 12, 2019 03:08 PM
Giants' Stephen Vogt: Resting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogt will take a seat after starting behind the plate in the first two games of the series and reaching base four times between the contests. Erik Kratz will start at catcher Sunday, but Vogt should act as the Giants' primary option at the position until Buster Posey (concussion) is activated from the 7-day injured list.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Set to replace Posey as top catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Though he'll sit out the series finale at Coors Field, Vogt's fantasy outlook improved earlier in day, when the Giants placed top catcher Buster Posey (concussion) on the 7-day injured list. With Posey out of the picture for at least the next week, Vogt should draw regular starts against right-handed pitching. The newly recalled Aramis Garcia should occupy the short end of a platoon behind the plate, with his first start coming Thursday with southpaw Kyle Freeland on the bump for Colorado.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Batting third in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt will start at catcher and bat third Monday against the Reds, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogt draws a favorable spot in the batting order as he makes his first start with the Giants while Buster Posey rests in the series finale. Though he'll enter the lineup for the first time in 2019, Vogt has already made a mark off the bench through the first three games of the series in Cincinnati, appearing in each contest while going a collective 3-for-5 with a home run, four runs, two RBI and a walk.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Strong debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt came off the bench and went 3-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 12-11 win over the Reds.

Buster Posey started Friday's contest, but when the game appeared to have fallen out of reach, he was removed in favor of Vogt. The veteran backup did not disappoint in his first game as a Giant -- the team he rooted for his entire life -- reaching base in all three of his plate appearances and delivering a game-tying solo home run off Rasiel Iglesias to send the game into extra innings. Vogt is occupying the Giants' backup role while Erik Kratz (hamstring) mends on the injured list, but the former may hang onto the job considering he has nearly matched Kratz's entire output this season in just one game.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt had his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

As expected, Vogt was summoned to the majors prior to Wednesday's series finale against the Dodgers, with Ty Blach returning to the minors and Logan Webb (suspension) landing on the restricted list in a pair of corresponding moves. The veteran backstop hasn't played in the majors since undergoing shoulder surgery last May. Vogt figures to serve as catching depth behind Buster Posey and Erik Kratz during his time with the big club.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Moving up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt relayed that the Giants informed him he would be called up from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Janie McCauley of the Associated Press reports.

Vogt will be back in the big leagues for the first time since mid-May of last season after facing a long road back in his recovery from shoulder surgery. Over his 17 games at Sacramento this season, Vogt fared well at the plate with an .889 OPS in 72 plate appearances, but perhaps more importantly, he experienced no ill effects while playing behind the plate and at first base and left field. It's unclear who the Giants will remove from the 40-man and active rosters to clear room for Vogt.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Heading to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The move comes as no surprise as Vogt has been eased into action behind the plate as he returns from shoulder surgery last May. The 34-year-old has been catching in minor-league games and should continue to ramp up his defensive workload at Triple-A.

March 11, 2019 02:52 PM
Giants' Stephen Vogt: Catching in minor-league game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt will catch a few innings in a minor-league game Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Vogt has gotten some at-bats so far this spring but has yet to suit up behind the plate. The Giants are handling him cautiously as he works his way back from missing the entirety of 2018 due to shoulder issues, though he doesn't have a ton of time to get ready for Opening Day. He remains in competition with Aramis Garcia and Rene Rivera for the backup catcher job.

March 6, 2019 10:36 PM
Giants' Stephen Vogt: Collects two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles and an RBI in Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Vogt put the Giants on the board with his run-scoring single in the second inning. The veteran backstop struck out in his next at-bat before adding another single in his third and final trip to the plate. He's now 3-for-8 (.375) through a trio of Cactus League games.

Giants' Stephen Vogt: Back from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt (illness) will be the designated hitter Saturday against the Rangers.

He missed a few games with an illness but will hit eighth and serve as the DH in this split-squad game.

February 28, 2019 01:32 PM
Giants' Stephen Vogt: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt was removed from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers due to illness, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogt was supposed to see his first game action of the spring but will wind up waiting at least one more day. He missed the entirety of the 2018 season due to a shoulder injury but has reportedly been throwing well. He took batting practice and threw Thursday instead of getting into the game.
