New York was searching for some depth at the designated hitter position and found a solid left-handed bat to provide just that for them.
Vogelbach has been a major key to the Mets’ resurgence in the second half of the season and has proven to be a solid pickup by general manager Billy Eppler.
In just 14 games for the Mets, entering play Wednesday, he’s already hitting .333 with two home runs, 7 RBI, 10 walks, and an OPS of 1.044.

Vogelbach Continues Surge
The Mets were in desperate need of some firepower from the left side at the designated hitter position.
Vogelbach has given them so much more.
Acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline, Vogelbach has taken advantage of his new opportunity to be a part of a contending ballclub.
The 29-year-old slugger has hit 14 home runs and driven in 41 runs while hitting .242 on the season.
He has proven to be a solid pickup by the Mets at the trade deadline and has helped them continue to win ballgames.
He has helped give the Mets a different look in their lineup.
The Mets are leading the NL East by 7.5 over the second-place Atlanta Braves and Vogelbach has contributed heavily to the Mets’ recent run of success.
The Mets are going to need him to stay hot if they want to continue distancing themselves from the Braves.
His bat has helped balance out the lineup and has given them some of the depth that they so desperately needed at the DH position.
