The Milwaukee Brewers have experienced their first injury of spring training, and it could have a significant outcome on the competition at catcher. Stephen Vogt, in good position to make the club entering camp, has a right shoulder strain that is expected to keep him out of game action for two to three weeks. Entering camp, the Brewers had a decision to make between Vogt and Jett Bandy, who is out of minor-league options, to share catching duties with Manny Piña. “He has no throwing for about a week,” manager Craig Counsellsaid of Vogt. “He’ll start throwing again (after that).” Vogt said he felt something "funky" in his shoulder during a drill last week but thought to himself, "Whose arm doesn't hurt this time of year? So, I just chalked it up, caught in the game on Friday and felt fine." "The soreness kind of crept up and the it got to a point where I had to stop throwing and we thought it was necessary to get an MRI," he added. "I'm thankful that it's not something more serious than just a strain. That's what I'm hanging on to.
