OAKLAND -- The A's placed catcher John Jaso on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion and recalled catcher Stephen Vogt from Triple-A Sacramento to take his roster spot Thursday, in advance of the A's four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels.
Foul tips off the mask during the A's series in Houston this week resulted in the symptoms. He was hitting .271 with three home runs and 21 RBI with a .387 on-base percentage in 70 games for the A's
If Jaso is not reinstated in 14 days, he must be transferred to the 15-day disabled list.
Vogt, meanwhile, was not seen in the Oakland clubhouse before batting practice, though he was listed on the A's BP card. He played in four games for the A's from June 25-July 3, all starts at catcher, and went 2-for13 (.154) with a home run, two runs batted in and a strikeout. They were the first two hits of his big league career.
Since being sent back to the minors, though, Vogt batted .323 with four homers and 15 RBI in 16 games for the River Cats. In 74 games overall, his .546 slugging percentage is fifth in the Pacific Coast League and his .324 batting average is seventh. He has 13 homers and 58 RBI and Vogt has also thrown out 41% (36-of-61) would-be base stealers for Sacramento, the third-best such mark in the league.
