Topic - Stephen Vogt
The Oakland Athletics called up catcher Stephen Vogt from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday and optioned right-hander Fernando Rodriguez back to the minors.
At first glance, Oakland catcher Stephen Vogt appears to be lobbying for a spot on the A's opening day roster.
For much of the season, Stephen Vogt caught Sonny Gray with Triple-A Sacramento. Neither could have pictured pairing up on such a sensational playoff moment for the Athletics when they were 90 miles away in California's capital.
"Everything about that night was something you dream of," said Vogt. "Going toe-to-toe with the best pitcher in baseball and then getting that hit . . . it was amazing. Now I'm here and get an opportunity to catch this staff again. I want to help us keep it going."
"I like talking to and being with my teammates, but talking to them also is part of the job," he said. "A catcher is considered a leader and you need to know as many things about your teammates, both on and off the field. You never know what kind of information you are going to learn. You know who to push and who to be easier with."
