Tampa Bay Rays C Stephen Vogt is hitting .357 (10-for-28) with three doubles, one triple and three RBIs in 12 Grapefruit League games this year. "He has all those really nice qualities of a very good hitter," Maddon said. "His bat is very impressive and attractive. He's a good hitter, against righties and lefties. He works a good at-bat and when he's at two strikes, he's not in trouble. However, Cs Chris Gimenez and Jose Lobaton "have the advantage" to win the backup duties this year because they both have more experience catching.
