According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, it's a distinct possibility, as Vogt, 38, is "emerging as a serious candidate" for the job.
Even during his playing career, it seemed like Vogt - currently a coach with the Mariners - was destined for a managerial career. Throughout his ten seasons in the big leagues - including two as an All-Star with Oakland - Vogt was a clubhouse leader. He broke into the majors at 27, making his ten-year career all the more impressive as well. And from 2015-2017, which included his two All-Star seasons, Vogt hit .250/.314/.423, averaging 22 doubles and 15 home runs a year to go with a 101 OPS+.
Perhaps most importantly, he was primarily a catcher, and we all know how much MLB teams love hiring former catchers as managers.
Like Snitker, Vogt looks like he could be a top managerial name this offseason. He's already interviewed for the vacant Giants job, though it sounds like that could be Bob Melvin's for the taking. Clearly he's got a future as a major-league manager, but will it be in Cleveland?
We'll know soon enough, as Vogt is scheduled for an in-person with the Guardians this week. Clearly, Cleveland is interested in pursuing a younger manager who embraces the modern game and can command the respect of a clubhouse. Vogt certainly fits that bill.
