ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays have traded minor league catcher Stephen Vogt to the Oakland Athletics for a player to be named or cash.
Vogt hit .272 with homers and 43 RBIs at Triple-A Durham last season. He also made his major league debut in 2012, going hitless in 25 at-bats over three separate stints with the Rays.
The deal was announced Friday night.
