Stephen Vogt has been a revelation for Oakland over the last few months. He is a twenty-nine year old with just over 100 big league games under his belt but don’t let that fool you.
Analysis: Stephen Vogt is hitting .357 this season with a .387 OBP. He has 4 home runs and 21 runs batted in through 40 games. That is a solid line, however, Vogt has a lot more going for him. He has catcher, first base and outfield position eligibility. Over the last month of the season Vogt ranks as the 4th best catcher, 18th best first baseman and the 54th best outfielder.
He doesn’t strikeout much(10.6%) but his walk rate could use some work(4.5%). Vogt does have a solid history in the minors. He has hit over .320 with an OBP over .400 the last two years in Triple-A. He obviously works best at catcher but he gives any squad plenty of flexibility. Expect his batting average to come back to reality but he is capable of hitting .280 going forward.
Stephen Vogt is available in 40% of fantasy leagues.
