UCLA commit. He sits on a small, compact, strong athletic frame that has room to add muscle. I consider him one of the best pure hitters in the class. On a consistent basis he demonstrates that he has elite bat-to-ball skills and the ability to be a table setter that can hit at the top of any lineup. Flashes average raw power and will hit the ball over the fence occasionally. Vogel will produce high doubles totals until he adds more strength to his frame. Shows an above average arm tool with carry, accuracy and the ability to track balls down in the gap. The run tool is special, combined with instincts. He clocked a 6.45 60-yard dash to lead off the workout. Exhibited quick bursts, agility and is capable of stealing bases at will as he showed after leading the game off with a hit and taking second on the next pitch.

Vogel is another player that should see his ranking climb when they're updated. Vogel showed off his all-field power during batting practice by barreling everything up and using the whole field. Vogel showed a strong arm during the defensive portion of the workout in which his accuracy was eye catching. The UCLA commit also showed some speed down the line where he was clocked at 4.18 home-to-first.

4/13/18

The USD commit went 3-for-5 with a HR, 4 RBI and scored a run in the 11-1 league win over Newport Harbor. Vogel can spray the ball all over the field, which lends itself to a high BA. His power numbers are in the form of 2B's, but as he adds strength you will see him pull the inside pitch down the left field line at a higher rate.

University of San Diego commit. At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, his frame project for further physical development. Wiry strength in his long limbs, lean build. Vogel is an interesting player in the 2020 class Committed as an outfielder, Vogel uses a left leg trigger then drops the barrel in the zone where he keeps it through contact. Shows very good plate coverage and zone awareness. Doesn't chase bad pitches and squares up most that are in the zone.

2018 Underclass Area Code Games - UCLA commit. Inconsistent start to the Area Code Underclass Games for Vogel before turning in a stellar performance in Day 2 where he had three hits and all but carried the Brewers against a very good arm. Consistent barrel after the slow start that he carried the rest of the week. The approach is raw, but the hands are quick, and he's stronger than he looks. Showed his easy power on a double to right field that continued to carry into a cutting breeze. Vogel shows some polish in the outfield where his arm is a legitimate tool now. Throws are inline with carry. Shows good lateral movement and range. Reaches ball under control of his body.

4/3/18 - 4/6/18 - He's shorter with a lean, athletic frame. Looks like he could be a slot receiver in football. Runs well and the hands were twitchy at the plate. Really quick to the ball with stronger wrists than you would think. Got on a couple to the pull side for doubles. Consistent hard contact especially to the pull side. Had him at 4.35 on a full swing infield single. Moves well in centerfield, although he took a couple iffy-routes. Not a mega guy on the national scene right now, but a very good ball player with twitchy actions. Leg hang at the plate that comes down somewhat heavy. It worked for him during the week, but I can see the timing getting thrown off at times.
