Stephen Vogt (C, OAK) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Late Rounds as Backup Catcher

ANALYSIS: Stephen Vogt had a modest fantasy year in 2014, with only nine HR, 35 RBI and a .279 AVG. With only one other catcher, Josh Phegley, on the A’s 40-man roster, expect Vogt to see a healthy increase in PA from the 287 he had last year. As a left-handed hitter, Vogt will likely receive most of the plate appearances against righties.

Vogt's walk-to-strikeout ratio has improved over each of the last three years. Now, this was during his minor league stints, but it’s a positive sign that Vogt is getting a good feel for the strike zone. During that same three-year span, his AVG, OBP, SLG and OPS have all consistently increased, as well. Vogt may be a guy you draft late as a backup catcher who gives you the value of a starter.
