First baseman Brandon Moss and catcher Stephen Vogt will both undergo surgery to repair injuries that hindered them for much of the A’s season.
Moss, who played most of the year with cartilage damage in his right hip, will have surgery Oct. 21 in Nashville, to be performed by Dr. Thomas Byrd. Byrd also handled hip procedures for former A’s pitcher Justin Duchscherer a few years ago.

The nature of the surgery, and the timetable for recovery, won’t be known until Byrd explores the extent of the damage, according to A’s assistant general manager David Forst.
Moss said in September that were he to require microfracture surgery to repair the cartilage, he might be sidelined for part of spring training.
Vogt is scheduled for surgery on his right foot Tuesday with Los Angeles-based specialist Dr. Kenneth Jung. He has a tear in the plantar plate, located on the ball of the foot.
Vogt is expected to be full strength for the start of spring camp in February.
