Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt is expected to miss at least a month with a strained MCL in his left knee. Vogt suffered the injury when he collided with opposing pitcher Chad Kuhl on a play at the plate on Monday night.

The Brewers selected Vogt off waivers from the Athletics on June 25. He mustered a disappointing .217/.287.357 batting line in 174 plate appearances with the A’s, but has turned things around in Milwaukee. In 32 PA with his new team, he has four homers and nine RBI.

Catcher Jett Bandy was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He’ll back up Manny Pina while Vogt is out.
