Vogt went 1-for-3 with a walk, a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Rockies.
Vogt delivered a two-run triple in the bottom of the eighth inning to give Arizona the lead a half inning after Colorado tied the game. It was the fourth consecutive game with a hit for the catcher, who is 4-for-10 with two extra-base hits and four RBI during the streak. Vogt, who is slashing .211/.302/.500, is clearly the backup to Carson Kelly (.339/.487/.696).
Vogt went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves.
Vogt got the start behind the plate for Game 1 of the twin bill and made his presence felt, as he launched his third long ball of the campaign with a two-run shot off Bryse Wilson in the second inning. The veteran has seen a fair share of time behind the plate this season and is making the most of his chances, as he has launched three homers in only 35 plate appearances.
Vogt went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored Tuesday in a 10-8 extra-innings win over the Rockies.
Vogt didn't start the contest, but he came in as part of a double switch in the sixth inning and managed to log four at-bats as the game extended through the 13th frame. He made an immediate impact for Arizona at the plate, slugging a two-run homer to break a 3-3 tie in the seventh. The veteran has seen a fair share of time behind the plate this season and is slashing .250/.250/.750 with a pair of homers through 12 plate appearances.
Vogt made his second start Saturday and went 0-for-3 in a 7-0 loss to the Padres.
Vogt has surprisingly started two of the first three games. It wasn't a shock to see him catch Madison Bumgarner given their history in San Francisco, but Vogt was back behind the dish for the third game. Carson Kelly entered the season perceived as the primary catcher, but thus far, manager Torey Lovullo started Vogt against the two righties the Diamondbacks faced. If there is a strict platoon -- Lovullo hasn't indicated there's one -- then Vogt would be in line for more at-bats than originally projected.
Vogt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Padres.
Vogt drew the start behind the dish with Madison Bumgarner on the mound. Though he struck out twice, he also took Tim Hill deep in the fifth inning -- going back-to-back with Tim Locastro -- for his first home run of the season. Carson Kelly still figures to earn the majority of starts at catcher for the team moving forward.
Vogt is starting Thursday's game against the Padres.
Vogt will bat eighth while starting behind the dish during Thursday's Opening Day matchup. While Carson Kelly is slated to serve as the primary catcher for Arizona this year, Vogt could carve out at-bats, especially when Madison Bumgarner is on the mound.
Vogt caught Madison Bumgarner and went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's spring game against the Athletics.
Vogt has been behind the dish for both of Bumgarner's Cactus League outings. The two worked together with the Giants in 2019 and have familiarity, but there's been no talk of Bumgarner having a personal catcher. He threw to Carson Kelly in all nine of his starts in 2020, which coincidentally was the worst season of the left-hander's career. Vogt, who will be the backup to Kelly this season, is 4-for-20 with three extra-base hits and two RBI over seven spring appearances.
Vogt (COVID-19) arrived at spring training Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Vogt's arrival at camp was delayed by just over a week after he tested positive for COVID-19 during intake testing. Given his fairly brief absence, the 36-year-old should not be at serious risk of missing Opening Day. He has plenty of time to prepare for the start of the season and should serve as Arizona's No. 2 catcher to begin the year.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Wednesday that Vogt has yet to report to spring training due to a positive COVID-19 test result, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Lovullo didn't indicate whether Vogt was experiencing any symptoms of the virus, but in any event, he'll remain in quarantine until he clears all COVID-19-related protocols. Assuming he's able to make a full recovery ahead of Opening Day, Vogt projects to serve as the Snakes' No. 2 catcher behind Carson Kelly.
Vogt isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers.
Vogt will sit for a second consecutive game in Tuesday's series opener against the Dodgers. Carson Kelly will start at catcher.
Vogt is not in the lineup Sunday against the Giants.
Vogt and Carson Kelly have alternate starts behind the plate over the past five games, and that trend continues after Vogt started Saturday and went 0-for-3 with one strikeout.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Vogt and starter Carson Kelly will have an even split behind the plate, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Vogt started Friday, his fifth start in the last seven games, but the manager envisions a more equitable split going forward. "It's going to probably flatten out and be 50/50," Lovullo said. "I just was sorting through that and going through some of the matchups that I liked, and I think there's a lot of familiarity between a pitcher and a catcher that works for both. So, I'll try to continue those relationships, but I also have to be mindful of offensive matchups, and I want to put our catchers in the best position to have a good offensive game as well." Vogt is slashing .188/.250/.406, which is slightly better than Kelly's .167/.268/.278.
Vogt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Padres.
Vogt tied the game by knocking in Starling Marte with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. Vogt then added a critical insurance run with his sixth-inning solo shot. It was his first homer of the year, to go with four RBI, two runs scored and a .250 batting average in eight games.
Vogt went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Padres.
Vogt was the batterymate for Robbie Ray, but it's uncertain if he's a personal catcher for the left-hander. He was the lone change in the lineup from the first to the second game, replacing Carson Kelly, and batted seventh in the order before he was pinch hit for by Kevin Cron in the seventh inning. Kelly is expected to catch the bulk of games this season.
Vogt is expected to serve as the top backup to starter Carson Kelly, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks submitted four catchers to the player pool with Kelly and Vogt the expected duo that sticks on the active roster. Vogt had a career-best .804 OPS in 2019 and whacked double-digit home runs for a fourth consecutive season. Prospect Daulton Varsho and veteran John Hicks are also in summer camp.
Vogt is considered a lock to make the Diamondbacks' roster, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. He's batted .391 (9-for-23) with four extra-base hits and three runs scored over eight spring appearances.
Vogt has managed double-digit home runs each of his last four seasons, but he may not get the amount of playing time he did in those years, when he appeared in at least 99 games each time. He's expected to serve as the backup to Carson Kelly, but Vogt does have experience receiving staff ace Madison Bumgarner, with whom he played in 2019 as a member of the Giants.
Vogt was behind the plate for Madison Bumgarner's start Thursday and went 1-for-2 in a loss to the Reds.
Vogt played in San Francisco last season with Bumgarner, so having him catch Arizona's ace was likely due to the pair's familiarity. Bumgarner has stated that he doesn't require a personal catcher and would be comfortable throwing to anyone, including the Diamondbacks' starting catcher, Carson Kelly. It could work out that Vogt catches the majority of his games, though, as Arizona manager Torey Lovullo will be careful not to put too much work on Kelly.
Vogt signed a one-year contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The 35-year-old hit .263/.314/.490 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI over 99 games with the Giants in 2019. He should play a sizable role for the Diamondbacks next season after Carson Kelly struggled behind the plate last year.
Vogt went 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Rockies.
Vogt caught the Rockies napping with a steal in the second inning, and he tested his luck again (successfully) in the seventh. The slow-moving catcher doubled his career steal total in just one night. Any fantasy manager desperate enough to play him should enjoy the unexpected surprise, as the 34-year-old may not provide many more -- if any -- stolen bags. Vogt can be relied upon for his solid bat (.264/.311/.492 with 10 homers) as a backup catcher.
Vogt went 1-for-3 with a walk, four RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Vogt took Jhoulys Chacin deep in the first inning for his 10th home run of the season. That was the highlight of his big performance, though he added two more RBI with a sacrifice fly and a fielder's choice later in the game. While he's gotten more consistent at-bats with the injury to Buster Posey (back) and the availability of the designated hitter, Posey is expected to return to the lineup Thursday, the same day the Giants will wrap up interleague play. The end result could be less consistent playing time for Vogt to close the campaign.
