A's Acquire Vogt, Designate Otero For Assignment

The A's announced that they have acquired catcher Stephen Vogt from the Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.  To make room for Vogt on the roster, Oakland designated right-hander Dan Otero for assignment.

Vogt, 28, saw time in 18 games for the Rays last season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A Durham where he hit .272/.350/.424 in 94 games.  The catcher was the Rays' 12th round pick in the 2007 draft and has spent his entire career in the Tampa Bay organization until now.

Otero, also 28, will be changing teams for the third time this winter after going from the Giants to the Yankees to the A's in a pair of waiver moves.  The right-hander made 12 relief appearances last season and pitched in 48 games in Triple-A where he posted a 2.90 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 1.2 BB/9.
