Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Attends first camp session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach attended Saturday's summer camp session after not being present for Friday's opening day, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The reason for Vogelbach's absence Friday wasn't officially disclosed, but there appears to be no health-related concerns considering he was present and accounted for a day later. The burly slugger will look to regain the momentum he'd built up during Cactus League play, when he hit .321 (9-for-28), during the current ramp-up to Opening Day.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Could be eventual trade candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach, who is projected to serve as the Mariners' primary designated hitter, could become an attractive trade piece if he starts the season off well, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The burly 27-year-old slugged 30 home runs in 2019 yet also struggled to a .208 average, in large part due to a 26.7 percent strikeout rate and .232 BABIP. Vogelbach's season essentially fell off a cliff after the All-Star break, but he was hitting an impressive .321 (9-for-28) over 12 Cactus League games when spring training was suspended. Johns speculates that if Vogelbach carries over that momentum into summer camp, and eventually, the first month of the regular season, he could become a particularly appealing trade option for contending National League teams that will be filling a full-time designated hitter spot for the first time this season.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Catches hitting coach's eye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach's improved contact rate stood out to hitting coach Tim Laker before spring training was suspended, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Vogelbach worked on several adjustments to his approach in the batter's box this offseason after posting an anemic .162/.286/.341 line following the All-Star break in 2019. Laker feels Vogelbach's results this spring -- a .321 average (9-for-28) across 12 Cactus League games -- speak to a keener eye at the plate on the part of the burly slugger. "He was frustrated a little bit in spring, just because he hadn't hit any home runs yet, but Daniel Vogelbach is not a guy that is going to have to worry about power," Laker said. "It's not like he lost his power. I felt like he was having better at-bats, wasn't striking out nearly at the clip he was in the second half. I did think it was headed in the right direction, for sure."

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Makes offseason adjustments
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach, who was hitting .321 (9-for-28) prior to the suspension of spring training, focused on being more aggressive early in counts and improving against left-handed pitching this offseason, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I feel really good," the Florida native reaffirmed. "I'm swinging at strikes. I feel really good off lefties, and that was my goal coming into Spring Training -- to try to dominate lefties. Every time a lefty is on the mound, really lock in and try to dominate them. It's something I needed to get better from last year and is a goal of mine, and it starts in Spring Training."

Vogelbach is expected to primarily operate at designated hitter this season with rookie Evan White taking over at first base, so he should have plenty of time to remain focused on the improvements he attempted to make this offseason. The burly slugger's motivation was a poor second half of last season -- one in which he slashed an anemic .162/.286/.341 -- and he also generated an unsightly .161/.288/.315 line versus southpaws in 2019. Both Vogelbach and manager Scott Servais also came to the conclusion the 27-year-old was too passive in the post-All-Star-break portion of the campaign, as he posted a .926 OPS when putting the first pitch in play and a .587 figure when getting behind in the count. With Tom Murphy and Aaron Nola both poised to see some time at designated hitter as well this season, Vogelbach will still sit against some left-handers, but his production prior to the pause in play offered reason for optimism.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is not in the lineup Thursday against the Athletics, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Vogelbach is slashing .160/.333/.300 with two home runs and six RBI in 19 games this month. He'll give way to Domingo Santana at DH on Thursday with lefty Sean Manaea starting for Oakland.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Walks in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach (neck) went 0-for-2 with a walk in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

Vogelbach had sat out the series finale versus the Orioles on Sunday with neck soreness, but he was well enough to serve as the designated hitter Tuesday. The slugger remains mired in a 1-for-16 slump that's encompassed his last five games, and he's now gone without an extra-base hit in 12 of his last 13 contests overall.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach (neck) is starting at DH and hitting seventh Tuesday against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Vogelbach sat out Sunday's series finale against the Orioles due to a sore neck, but he's been cleared to return following Monday's off day. The 26-year-old is hitting just .178 with a 12:18 BB:K through 17 games this month.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Dealing with neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is not in Sunday's lineup due to a sore neck, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The extent of the injury isn't known, though Vogelbach did exit Saturday's contest early. Tom Murphy is serving as the team's designated hitter Sunday in Vogelbach's absence.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Not part of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

Vogelbach is hitting just .178 this month and .163 against lefties this season, so it doesn't come as much surprise he is being held out Sunday against Orioles starter John Means. Tom Murphy will serve as the Mariners' designated hitter.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Sits again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach remains on the bench Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

The lack of a designated hitter under National League rules doesn't guarantee a day off for Vogelbach, as he's started 46 times at first base this season. However, Austin Nola will man the position Wednesday.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Sits in NL park
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is not in the lineup Tuesday in Pittsburgh, Adam Jude of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners don't have a designated hitter available with the series being played under National League rules, but Vogelbach has started at first base on 46 occasions this season and could certainly do so in one or both of the next two games. Austin Nola starts there Tuesday.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Comes through in pinch-hit capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach entered Friday's loss to the White Sox as a pinch hitter and laced a two-run double in his one at-bat.

The burly slugger plated Tim Lopes and Tom Murphy with his timely two-bagger, bringing the Mariners to within 8-7 at the time. As impressive as his power numbers have been -- Vogelbach has a career-high 30 home runs to go along with 17 doubles -- the 26-year-old has nevertheless been in a near-three-month slump at the plate. Vogelbach entered July with a .244/.379/.519 line, but he's slashed just .169/.293/.373 across the 208 plate appearances he's logged over his last 55 games.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Vogelbach went 0-for-3 in Thursday's series finale against Cincinnati, so he'll take a seat for Friday's clash. Omar Narvaez draws the start behind the dish and will hit sixth.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Reaches 30 homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 7-4 loss to the Astros.

The 26-year-old has reached 30 homers on the season, but his overall numbers have been in free fall. Since the beginning of August, Vogelbach is slashing .157/.306/.348 with only five home runs and 10 RBI in 28 games.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Vogelbach has hit just .143/.323/.286 over his last 15 games, showing good plate discipline but little else. Austin Nola gets the nod at first base.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Outstanding offensive effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a bases-loaded walk, another base on balls and two runs overall in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Vogelbach generated one of five multi-hit efforts on a breakout offensive day for the Mariners. The slugger limped to a .130 average in a forgettable August, but he does have a modest three-game hitting streak and is now just one homer away from hitting 30-mark in that category for the first time in his career.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Out again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is not in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Vogelbach is hitting just .131 with a .565 OPS through 18 games this month, so he'll head to the bench for a second straight game as the Mariners stack right-handed hitters against lefty J.A. Happ. In his place, Tom Murphy is starting at DH and hitting fifth.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Sitting amid skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Vogelbach will get a rare day off versus a right-handed pitcher (Clay Buchholz) while he continues to endure a rough August. Since homering in the Mariners' first game of the month, Vogelbach has gone 7-for-57 (.123 average) with two home runs and a 32.8 percent strikeout rate. Omar Narvaez will fill in for Vogelbach as the Mariners' designated hitter.

Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Slugs homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

Vogelbach's 362-foot shot to right in the ninth brought the Mariners to within 5-4 at the time. The slugger has left the yard on a modest three occasions over his first 16 games in August and is hitting just .154 for the month, but at least five of his eight hits have gone for extra bases.

August 20, 2019 05:48 PM
Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Catches breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogelbach will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Rays.

The Rays are expected to deploy a lefty in Jalen Beeks as the primary pitcher, so Vogelbach will get the night off. Omar Narvaez will slot in as the designated hitter with Vogelbach on the bench.
