Profile: Vogt’s second full season in the Athletics lineup earned him his second All-Star nod, although a poor second half made his overall line look much less impressive. The backstop posted a decent .277/.320/.442 line in the first half, well above his career numbers, but he slumped to just a .652 OPS after the break. A bit of a late bloomer, it is reasonable to wonder if Vogt simply hit a bit of a wall while setting career highs in games and plate appearances in what was his age-31 season. Additionally, like many A’s hitters, Vogt has never performed particularly well at the Coliseum. He owns a lifetime .701 OPS in Oakland vs. a .730 mark overall, but he was especially ineffective at home in 2016, hitting just .245/.309/.361 in 236 plate appearances. Looking a bit deeper, the biggest change over the past two years was an 11% walk rate in ‘15 (by far a career high) falling all the way to 7% last season, although his strikeout rate also fell from 19% to 16%. Looking ahead, Vogt may already be past his short prime, but his ability to handle righties (career .759 OPS) and offer double-digit home runs makes him worth rostering in two catcher leagues considering how thin the position is right now. (Dylan Higgins)

The Quick Opinion: Vogt lost his luster a bit in the second half of his second full season with Oakland, dropping off significantly to bring down his overall line. The A’s catcher has relatively limited upside considering his age and short resume of significant success, although the truly thin catcher position and his ability to hit double-digit homers in a consistent starting role in the top half of a lineup means he may find himself on a roster somewhere in most formats.
