Latest Update Stephen Vogt hits ninth home run Sat Aug, 23, 04:37 AM
Is versatile in the field, since he can catch and play in the outfield. Can also hit for average and power, and displays both plate discipline and patience.
Flaws: : Needs to find his big-league niche. Must become a better game-caller and defensive receiver when behind the plate. Lacks defensive polish anywhere.
The fact that he has catcher eligibility is what makes Vogt such an exceptional play right now. He's hit safely in six of his last seven games with two home runs, four RBI and five runs scored over that span and is currently slashing .324/.353/.514 over 210 at-bats this season. His contributions to the counting stats and tremendous help in batting average and OBP put him ahead of a number of catchers commonly used in two-catcher leagues. If he's available on your wire and you aren't seeing any real production from your second backstop, give Vogt a look even if he's playing part-time.Analyst: Howard Bender
Vogt started the month of August going 0 for 17 but has since gone 11 for 30(.366) with seven runs, three home runs and eight RBI. He continues to produce at the plate when the A's put him in the lineup and given his catcher eligibility makes him useful in all fantasy formats. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Vogt has been phenomenal since being recalled at the beginning of June. Over the past seven days, Vogt is batting .318 with two home runs and six RBIs and should be started in all formats.Analyst: David Kerr
After going 2-for-28 over his previous eight games, Vogt snapped out of his first slump since his promotion on Saturday night, logging his second home run in three games. Despite his recent cold streak, Vogt is slashing .320/.351/.506 with seven home runs and 27 RBI through 178 at-bats and makes for a solid backstop option in fantasy, considering he spends his time manning first base following the Yoenis Cespedes trade.
