A’s catcher/first baseman/outfielder Stephen Vogt, who was hobbled by multiple injuries down the stretch, underwent surgery to repair the plantar plates and remove scar tissue in his right foot.

John Hickey of the San Jose Mercury News reports that Vogt’s recovery timetable is expected to be 6-8 weeks, so he should be fully healthy for spring training after hitting .279 with nine homers and a .752 OPS in 84 games this season.

Vogt joined the A’s in June and put up big numbers right away to grab hold of the first extended role of his career at age 29, but then hit just .186 in 39 games after August 1.
