Longtime big-league catcher Stephen Vogt is a "serious candidate" for the Cleveland Guardians' managerial vacancy, ESPN reported Monday.

The Guardians are replacing Terry Francona, who stepped down after 11 seasons and a 921-757 record that included a 76-86 finish in 2023.

Vogt, 38, ended his playing career after the 2022 season and spent the 2023 campaign as a bullpen coach with the Seattle Mariners.

A two-time All-Star with Oakland in 2015 and 2016, Vogt played for the Tampa Bay Rays (2012), Athletics (2013-17, 2022), Milwaukee Brewers (2017), San Francisco Giants (2019), Arizona Diamondbacks (2020-21) and Atlanta Braves (2021).

Vogt was a .239 hitter with 82 home runs and 313 RBIs in 794 games.
