Vogt's production has taken a dive recently, as he's posted a .160/.192/.320 line over the last seven days. Oakland will give him the night off and start Bruce Maxwell behind the dish.

Diaz (thumb) took ground balls Tuesday and hopes to be cleared for additional work when he sees a hand specialist next week, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old shortstop is working his way back from a hairline fracture in his thumb that'll keep him out for at least the remainder of the month. However, the fact that he was able to take grounders Tuesday is a positive sign for his progress. Depending on how his visit with the hand specialist goes Monday, he could be cleared to resume swinging a bat in the near future.
