Description: Athletics C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a tear in his plantar plate on October 14.
Insight: Vogt suffered the injury toward the end of the season and also played through a left ankle sprain in September. He will still be ready for spring training.
 
9/19/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is back in the lineup Friday against the Phillies.
Insight: It will be his first start in two weeks. Vogt was out over that time with a sprained left ankle. The Athletics hope he will bring the lineup some much needed offense.
 
9/18/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is not in the lineup Thursday against Texas.
Insight: Vogt hasn't started in over two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. He did pinch-hit on Wednesday, but when he reached base, manager Bob Melvin lifted him for Billy Burns. There seems to be no timetable for Vogt's return.
 
Hot8/22/2014 6:54:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is not in the lineup Friday against the Angels.
Insight: Left-hander Hector Santiago is starting against them, so the A's have Jonny Gomes, Nate Freiman, Sam Fuld and Craig Gentry starting in place of John Jaso, Brandon Moss, Josh Reddick and Vogt. Vogt has gone 14-for-40 (.350) with a double, three homers and eight RBI over his last 11 games and is hitting .322 with an .852 OPS on the year.
 
Hot8/16/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt has gone 11-for-30 with three homers and eight RBI over his last eight games.
Insight: Vogt was 0-for-21 from July 29 to Aug. 6, but he's bounced back nicely. He went 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Saturday against the Braves and is hitting .323 with eight dingers and 31 RBI in 198 at-bats.
 
Hot8/15/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is out of the lineup Friday against the Braves
Insight: The game is in Atlanta so the A's can't use a DH and left-hander Alex Wood is on the mound so Oakland has a righty-heavy lineup. Jonny Gomes is starting in left field and Nate Freiman is at first base. Vogt has gone 10-for-26 with two homers, six RBI and six runs in his last seven games after going 0-for-21 from July 29 to Aug. 6.
 
8/13/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals.
Insight: Left-hander Jason Vargas is throwing for Kansas City, so Vogt will get a night off. He's hitting .316 with eight doubles, seven homers, 29 RBI and an .838 OPS in 190 at-bats this season but just .219 with a homer and a .680 OPS against southpaws.
 
8/12/2014 11:04:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt has gone 7-for-22 with two homers and six RBI in his last six games.
Insight: Vogt watched his average drop from .361 to .315 after going 0-for-21 from July 29 to Aug. 6, but he's turned it around at the plate.
 
Cold8/6/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt has gone 0-for-21 in his last six games.
Insight: Vogt was hitting .361 after going 2-for-5 on July 28, but his slump has dropped him to .315 on the season. He has catching eligibility so he's worth holding for now.
 
Hot7/28/2014 11:06:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt had a double and a solo homer Monday at Houston.
Insight: Vogt has been an everyday player throughout this month, first due to Josh Reddick's knee injury and now because he's just too hot to take out. He's hit .361 with five home runs, 23 RBI and a .931 OPS in 147 at-bats and is a must-add due to his catcher eligibility.
 
Hot7/20/2014 8:18:00 PM
Description: Oakland C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt has hit .364 with four homers, 18 RBI and a .931 OPS in 118 at-bats this season. He went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and a walk Sunday against the Orioles.
Insight: Vogt, who has catcher eligibility, has been in the starting lineup every day in right field or at first base due to Josh Reddick's knee injury. The A's may find a way to keep his bat in the lineup even when Reddick returns.
 
Hot6/30/2014 10:49:00 PM
Description: Oakland OF/C Stephen Vogt raised his average to .343 with three hits Monday at Detroit.
Insight: Vogt was in the everyday lineup often in June due to Josh Reddick's injury. Reddick went back on the disabled list Sunday and Kyle Blanks is also on it, so Vogt should continue to start. He has catcher eligibility and could be a good option in AL-only or two-catcher leagues.
 
Hot6/18/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Oakland OF/C Stephen Vogt collected three hits in Tuesday's win over Texas.
Insight: Vogt, who is primarily a catcher, was making his fifth start in right field. He's done well since his promotion at the start of the month, hitting .359 over 39 at bats. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he may be sent back to the minors next week when Josh Reddick returns from a knee injury.
