Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi has turned to a familiar face in his quest to add catching depth.

Former A's catcher Stephen Vogt is close to signing a minor-league contract with the Giants, per sources.

The deal is pending a physical, which is no formality for the 34-year-old, who had season-ending surgery on his right shoulder last May. According to Janie McCauley of The Associated Press, Vogt feels good but is not yet throwing from the crouch.
