Giants' Ryan Vogelsong allows 2 runs, to stay in rotation


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong gave up two earned runs in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers. 

Vogelsong went six innings and struck out five batters, walked one and surrendered three hits. This was Vogelsong's second start of the season and he earned a no-decision in it, keeping him at 0-1. After the game, manager Bruce Bochy announced Vogelsong will remain in the Giants' starting rotation.

"I thought he threw the ball well," manager Bruce Bochy said after the game, per CSN Bay Area. "He made a couple mistakes, but overall, I thought it was a real nice effort."

Vogelsong's other two appearances this year came as a reliever. Against the Dodgers, he gave up a run each in the first and second innings and then pitched a shutout over the next four. 

Vogelson's ERA is now 7.71 for the season. 


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong named Thursday starter vs. Dodgers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was named the starting pitcher for Thursday's contest against Dodgers, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters on Wednesday, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. 

Vogelsong has already made one start this season. He owns a 10.45 ERA, a 2.80 WHIP and a 10:9 K:BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings pitched. He went 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four starts last season against Los Angeles.


Giants to go with Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit Thursday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy remains on the fence about naming his starting pitcher for Thursday, according to CSN Bay Area.

Bochy wants to see how Tuesday and Wednesday play out before naming his starter, but is expected to choose either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit for the job. Jake Peavy was the scheduled starter, but has since been placed on the 15-day DL with a back strain.

Vogelsong has made one start this season with a 10.45 ERA in three appearances. Petit has made five appearances this season with a 4.91 ERA in 7 1/3 innings.


Giants' Bochy won't move starters up after Peavy sent to DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that he will insert either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit into the rotation against the Dodgers Thursday rather than alter his other starters' schedules after Jake Peavy was placed on the disabled list, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants have an off-day Monday, and the team's regular rotation will receive extra rest rather than bump up in order to cover for Peavy's absence. That will leave Chris Heston and Tim Hudson to face the Rockies in Colorado Friday and Saturday, respectively.


Giants SP Jake Peavy on track to make Sunday start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy (back) completed a bullpen session without any issues, and remains on track to make his next scheduled start on Sunday against San Diego, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I just have the biggest smile in the world on my face because I know we've got it where it's supposed to be," Peavy said. "I hope it stays that way."

Manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that Ryan Vogelsong will make the start if Peavy can't go on Sunday, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.


Giants' Vogelsong surrenders pair of three-run HRs in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong surrendered a pair of home runs and was hit with the loss in his season debut on Tuesday against Arizona.

Vogelsong allowed a three-run home run to David Peralta in the third and a three-run shot yo Jake Lamb in the fifth. He surrendered seven earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five over 4 2/3 innings of a 7-6 defeat. Of his 99 pitches, 62 were strikes. He opens the season with a 13.50 ERA.

"Basically, I wasted a good offensive night for my team," Vogelsong said, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "Anytime we score six runs, we should get the win. Those guys deserve a win."

The Giants have yet to announce Vogelsong's next scheduled start due to Jake Peavy's back injury. Peavy could return Sunday at San Diego, which could push Vogelsong down to Monday at home against Colorado.


Giants pitcher Jake Peavy to miss start Tuesday with back tightness


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy will miss his scheduled start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks with back tightness, manager Bruce Bochy said Monday per CSN Bay Area.

Ryan Vogelsong will get the call for Tuesday's game. Bochy hopes Peavy will be able to start during their next series against the Padres. Peavy struggled in his final two starts of spring training and posted a 9.64 ERA with 11 strikeouts and six walks in six starts.


Giants could start Ryan Vogelsong Tuesday, rest Jake Peavy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Giants are considering using pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Rockies in order to allow pitcher Jake Peavy to have more time to prepare for the regular season, ESPN reports.

The Giants don't have an off-day during the first two weeks of the season, and Peavy, who has struggled this spring and has admitted to battling a dead-arm phase, could be skipped the first time through the rotation and effectively give the team a six-man rotation over the first week of play. Peavy would presumably make his regular-season debut Sunday against the Padres in San Diego.

Vogelsong, who made 32 starts last season but is not expected to serve as a full-time starter this year while the rotation is at full strength, posted a 6.45 ERA and 17:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 spring innings.


P Ryan Vogelsong learning new starter/reliever role with Giants


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong is transitioning to a starter/long reliever role, which could be quite tough given his history as a starter. 

But one thing Vogelsong has going for him is a longstanding friendship with bullpen coach Mark Gardiner. The two have a long relationship, as Gardiner was a veteran pitcher with the Giants making a similar transition when Vogelsong joined the club in 2000. 

Both pitcher and coach believe that experience will help each other this season

“The biggest thing is just being accepting of it,” Gardner said, via the San Jose Mercury News. “If you’re against it, it’s going to be a tough road. So he’ll have to make sure he’s on board and I think he already made that decision. Signing with us, that was the spot that was open.”


Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong tagged for six runs in start Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong gave up six runs on six hits, including two home runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Indians Tuesday.

Vogelsong, who is competing for a spot in the starting rotation, added two strikeouts and one walk in the outing.

"My tempo was a little off, and it was weird because I came out of the bullpen right where I wanted to be," said Vogelsong, who observed that he "pulled" too many pitches across home plate, making them more hittable.


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong delivers best spring outing Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong took a liner off his shin in the first inning of Thursday's start but remained in and completed his best outing of the spring, finishing with two hits and two walks allowed in 4 2/3 scoreless innings as well as four strikeouts.

"I love to compete. That's why I didn't come out of the game today," Vogelsong said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I want to compete and coming over here and facing two hitters doesn't get me ready for April 6."

Competing for a spot in the rotation this spring, Vogelsong entered play Thursday with a 9.39 ERA in 7 2/3 innings over three appearances.

"The other night against Arizona I thought I threw well from my arm side, but my glove side I wasn't really happy with that," said Vogelsong, referring to throwing inside to lefty hitters. "But today, that's where I want to be when the season starts. The breaking ball is still half and half, but it's better than it was five days ago."


Cubs' Kyle Schwarber hits grand slam on Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Cubs prospect Kyle Schwarber belted a grand slam on Thursday against the Giants.

Schwarber didn't wait long, knocking in all four runs in the second inning. On the fourth pitch of the at-bat, Schwarber clobbered a pitch from Ryan Vogelsong, sending it out to right field. The 22-year-old is expected to begin the season in the minors, but is one of the team's top prospects. While he may not receive a promotion until late in the season, Schwarber could draw interest on the trade market if the Cubs decide to go all in at the deadline. 


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong happy after first spring outing


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was satisfied after his first outing of the spring, according to MLB.com.

"All of my pitches are close to being where I want them already, so from that standpoint it was good," Vogelsong said. "Just [need to] work on the mental side a little bit."

Vogelsong had an iffy start. He was able to get through the first inning quickly, but allowed four runs in the second. Vogelsong explained that he lost his focus during the inning. "I just lost my focus a little bit, just got in the stretch and started rushing a little bit, just never slowed myself down."

The 37-year-old posted a 4.00 ERA over 184 2/3 innings last season. He's expected to open the year in the Giants bullpen. 


Giants' Jake Peavy to start Wednesday for Giants


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Following Madison Bumgarner's exhibition start on Tuesday, the Giants will go with Jake Peavy to start Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, manager Bruce Bochy announced via MLB.com

Ryan Vogelsong will pitch Thursday against the Cubs and Yusmeiro Petit will go Friday against the Rangers. 


Bochy: Lincecum will be fifth starter; Vogelsong, Petit to bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum will be the team's fifth starter. He added Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit will pitch out of the bullpen, but could make an occasional start to give a starting pitcher a break.

Lincecum went 12-9 with a 4.74 ERA in 33 appearances (26 starts) in 2014. He was 2-0 with a 5.73 ERA and one save in seven relief appearances.

Lincecum said he spent the offseason working with his father fine tuning his mechanics. He said he had about 50 throwing sessions with his father this winter.

“I feel more confidence in myself. I feel I deserve the reward you can find from doing the right kind of work," Lincecum said, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) The Giants are open to adding another starting pitcher, according to the San Francisco Chronicle
