Former Stone Crabs catcher Stephen Vogt will be returing to the majors after being recalled by the Oakland Athletics yesterday. This will be Vogt’s second stint with the Athletics after being called up for five games in late June. He was hitting .324 with 21 doubles, 3 triple and 13 home runs in 74 games with the Sacramento River Cats, the Athletic’s Triple-A affiliate in the Pacific Coast League.
Vogt spent the 2009 and 2010 season with the Stone Crabs. He was drafted by the Rays in the 12th round of the 2007 draft out of Azusa Pacific University. He was dealt to the Athletics in April 2013.
