Veteran Players Likely To Be Traded Soon

Thursday’s news of Stephen Vogt being designated for assignment was tough for A’s fans. The move, though, wasn’t surprising as Oakland’s youth movement continues to gain traction. The Oakland Athletics are seemingly realistic about their situation in the stacked American League West. The team has not found any sort of consistency this season and the […] Oakland Athletics: Veteran Players Likely To Be Traded Soon - White Cleat Beat - White Cleat Beat - An Oakland Athletics Fan Site...

Stephen Vogt: Sometimes The Right Move Still Isn’t Easy

For good reason, much poetic is being waxed today about Stephen Vogt following his being designated for assignment this morning. Vogt was, all at the same time, a leader, a character, a known "all around good guy," and the purveyor of some of the A’s best memories in recent years. It is also for good reason that the A’s decided it was time to move on, as they embrace a youth movement and had Bruce Maxwell back healthy and available.

The highlights of Stephen Vogt’s highlights

In which a breakout season at age 30 sparks an A’s hero. In a shocking but not unwarranted move, the A’s have DFA’d team rock, leader, and voice Stephen Vogt. Vogt’s rough-and-ready play coupled with his extremely late breakout season made him possibly the least likely back-to-back All Star in the majors, and the most A’s-y A we’ve seen in a long time. Over his four years with a team, Vogt tallied more magical moments than can be watched in one sitting. Let’s take a walk...

Game #73: Astros Beat up Hahn, A’s

Jesse Hahn has his worst career outing as the A’s fall to the Astros for the 10th consecutive time at the Coliseum By the time the A’s recorded the game’s first out, the Astros were at the same time scoring their first run.

A’s designate All-Star C Stephen Vogt for assignment

The Oakland Athletics shocked pretty much everyone on Thursday by designating two-time All-Star catcher Stephen Vogt for assignment. The 32-year-old Vogt has struggled to a .217 average with four homers and 20 RBI on the season. Without providing much in terms of defense behind the plate, Vogt’s value has always been as a hitter. But his regression at the plate led to this move. Despite earning an All-Star appearance last season, the catcher posted a .251 average with a substandard .305...

Game #72: Astros Quiet A's Bats, 5-1

Houston strung together 5 hits in the top of the 6th inning to plate 3 runs off A's starter, Sean Manaea. Astros starter Mike Fiers and a string of relievers would make the lead hold as the Astros took their 3rd consecutive game of the 4 game series in Oakland.

The A's dropped their 9th consecutive game to the visiting Astros tonight (0-5 at home against the 'Stros in 2017) and fell to a season worst 17 1/2 games behind the front running club from Houston.

Game #71: Sonny Implodes in First Inning, A’s Lose 4-8

Sonny Gray had a disastrous 1st inning, giving up 5 runs, which proved to be enough for the loss. Hendriks and Michael Brady gave up a couple more later just to make sure.

The Astros unloaded on Sonny in the 1st inning, sending his stock plummeting. Oakland’s runs came in dribs and drabs, but they couldn’t claw their way back even as the Astros offense lay dormant for most of the game.
