Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - The Oakland Athletics acquired catcher Stephen Vogt from the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations on Friday.

Vogt has been optioned to Triple-A Sacramento and Oakland designated right- handed pitcher Dan Otero for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

The 28-year-old Vogt was 0-for-25 last year for the Rays.

And the Rays placed pitcher Jeff Niemann on the 15-day disabled list, with a sore right shoulder.  Niemann said he's had problems with the shoulder, since the beginning of spring training.
