ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports that the Diamondbacks and free agent catcher Stephen Vogt have agreed on a one-year contract that includes a second-year vesting option. The deal is worth $3 million and the vesting option is for $4 million, per Zach Buchanan of The Athletic. [Update: Official.]
Vogt, 35, had a bounce-back year with the Giants after missing the entire 2018 season. He hit .263/.314/.490 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI across 280 plate appearances. It was his most productive year at the plate since an All-Star campaign with the Athletics in 2015.
The Diamondbacks will likely have Vogt split catching duties with Carson Kelly.
