Atlanta Braves wide receiver Stephen Vogt underwent sports hernia surgery Oct. 6 in Atlanta and will be unavailable during the postseason.
He is expected to recover in time for spring training next year.
The 36-year-old Vogt played just 26 games for the Braves after being acquired in a trade with Arizona. Overall this season, he hit .195 with seven home runs and 25 RBIs in 78 games.
He wasn’t expected to be on the Braves’ postseason roster, even if he was healthy. The team has Travis d’Arnaud and William Contreras as receiver.
