Catcher: Stephen Vogt, Oakland

Vogt has cooled off considerably in June since hitting .322 through May, but he is still the best choice at catcher in the AL.

The Oakland catcher is slashing .290/.382/.508 and leads all AL catchers with 13 home runs and 53 RBI, which is tied for third in the entire AL with Miguel Cabrera.

Credit Vogt’s breakout season to his plate discipline; he has 39 walks, which is tied for ninth in the American League, but seven of the eight players ahead of him on the walk list have more at-bats.
