STEPHEN VOGT RUMORS & GOSSIP
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Derek Norris hit a three-run homer, Stephen Vogt added a two-run shot, and the Oakland Athletics won their 12th straight against the Minnesota Twins with a 9-4 victory Saturday night.

Oakland Athletics player Stephen Vogt did his best stand-up performance in a recent segment on MLB Network with co-hosts Kevin Millar and Chris Rose. And the results were as expected…pretty darn hilarious.
Vogt even went as far as penalizing Rose for his signature pink shirt. Always a character, Jonny Gomes said that he was crying like a baby the very first time Vogt pulled...
Oakland A's utility man Stephen Vogt (.316 average, six home runs, 25 RBIs in 51 games this season) joined new teammate Jonny Gomes on Thursday's edition of MLB Network's "Intentional Talk." Vogt did not appear as himself, however. He played the role of an NBA referee. And it was absolutely hysterical.
HORSE PLAY GONE TOO FAR?
Judging by his tweets last night...
Stephen Vogt didn’t get his first taste of life in the majors until the age of 27, when he made it into 18 games for Tampa Bay. The A’s acquired him at the start of last season and called him up to the big club from Sacramento midway through the year. And with John Jaso sidelined through much of the second half, Vogt played a pivotal role in the A’s pennant run.
Many were disappointed...
Don’t ever accuse Oakland A’s catchers John Jaso and Stephen Vogt of being unprepared.
Fellow A’s backstop Derek Norris has been taking a beating behind the plate recently, so when Norris was struck in the hand by a Yangervis Solarte backswing during Sunday’s game against the New York Yankees, both Jaso and Vogt sprung into action.

After A's catcher Derek Norris was hit on the glove hand by Yangervis Solarte's back swing Sunday, it looked like he may not be able to stay in the game and would have to be replaced.So John Jaso and Stephen Vogt did what any concerned teammates would do — have a friendly battle to see who could get their gear on first. Squatting behind the plate has be be a lot more fun...
(Eds: Adds details, quotes.) By DON KETCHUM Associated Press At first glance, Oakland catcher Stephen Vogt appears to be lobbying for a spot on the A's opening day roster.
He walks into the team's spring-training clubhouse, gets into his uniform and goes to the opposite side of the room, sitting down beside a teammate to see how he's doing. As the catchers prepare to...

Stephen Vogt triumphantly raised his right arm as he took off for first, and did it again with a celebratory whipped cream pie covering his face. Then, once more for the cheering home crowd as he left the field responsible for another improbable Oakland walkoff win.
No doubt Vogt will cherish this moment for all it was worth. Thanks to him, and fellow rookie Sonny Gray, the Athletics...

When Stephen Vogt arrived in Sacramento, most fans in the northern California area likely had never heard of him. Or, rather, if they had heard of him, it was from his rather inauspicious major league debut in 2012, where he went hitless in 27 plate appearances spread out over three stints with the Tampa Bay Rays. Now, however, after watching Vogt hit in a River Cat uniform for over...

Friday was the deadline for Major League teams to add players to their 40 Man Roster in order to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft on Dec. 8th. The Rays added three Minor League players: C/1B/OF Stephen Vogt, RHP Alexander Colome, and RHP Wilking Rodriguez. For the next three days I will be examining each player's potential impact in 2012 and beyond. Today I take a look at Stephen Vogt.
