Giants shuffle rotation, Ryan Vogelsong will head to bullpen


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) The Giants will shuffle their rotation coming out of the All-Star break, according to CSN Bay Area.

The Giants will go with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Chris Heston once they return to the field. This leaves starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the odd man out in the rotation, which will push him into the bullpen.

Vogelsong (6-6) has a 4.23 ERA with 70 strikeouts and 42 walks in 95 2/3 innings this season.


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong allows four runs in no-decision Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/12/2015) Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong was fortunate to escape Saturday's outing with a no-decision. Vogelsong allowed four runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings, but the Giants rallied after Vogelsong left the game, grabbing the 8-5 win over the Phillies. 

Vogelsong  fell behind early, as he gave up a first-inning run. He then settled in nicely, putting up zeroes over the next four innings. But he ran into trouble in the sixth, when he gave up a solo home run to Ryan Howard and a two-run shot to Cody Asche. 

Vogelsong(6-6, 4.23 ERA) has had mixed results over the last month. In his last seven starts, Vogelsong owns a 4.20 ERA, but has just two wins over that stretch. In those seven starts, he allowed four runs or more four times. He allowed one or zero runs in the other three starts in that time.

Vogelson threw four innings, allowed one run on three hits and struck out two batters prior to the ejection.

Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong erratic in loss


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Starter Ryan Vogelsong was wild Saturday and paid for it by taking the loss as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks at home, the team's seventh straight home defeat. 

Vogelsong lasted just 3 2/3 innings in dropping his third straight start. Over his 81 pitches, he only threw 42 strikes, walking five batters while allowing six hits and four runs. 

The pitcher has given up 12 earned runs and 18 hits during his three-game slide, which has seen him fall below .500 (4-5) on the season and his ERA rise to 4.81. 


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong allows five runs in loss vs. Phillies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong took the loss on Sunday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Phillies.

Vogelsong (4-4) gave up two runs on a second-inning single and another on a homer in the third, but he was able to keep the Phillies off the board heading into the seventh. The starter was removed following a walk with runners on the corners and two outs, and both runners came around to score on the next batter to the plate.

Vogelsong owns a 4.52 ERA and 48:24 K:BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks on Saturday.


Giants P Ryan Vogelsong allows 3 earned runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong gave up four runs — three earned — in Monday night's 4-3 loss to the Pirates. 

Vogelsong pitched well in every inning except the fifth. In that frame, he gave up his three earned runs, which included a two-run double from Neil Walker. Vogelsong went six innings, struck out five batters, gave up five hits and walked two hitters.

"I just made too many mistakes in the fifth inning and it ended up costing us the game," Vogelsong said after the game, per CSN Bay Area. "I put us in a real bad situation. Buster (Posey) made a great play to throw a guy out at third and then I had one get away from me (when I hit) Josh Harrison when I was ahead in the count. I ended up walking (Gregory) Polanco on a pretty close pitch, but it’s still a walk."

This is the first time since April 29 that Vogelsong has given up more than two earned runs in a game. His ERA is now 4.26 for the season. 

His next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Phillies. 


Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong goes six strong innings on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was solid in Wednesday's win over the Brewers. The right-hander limited the Brewers to just one run on six hits, striking out five. He did not issue a walk, as 73 of his 110 pitches went for strikes.

The only run he gave up came on an RBI-single in the fourth inning, which actually put the Giants down 1-0. But the offense came alive in the fifth, and Vogelsong was dominant the rest of the way to pick up his fourth win.

"He's so mentally tough. He did go through a tough time there," manager Bruce Bochy said to CSN Bay Area. "He's gotten in a better routine and he's throwing the ball as well as anybody. What a great job he did today. Good for him."

Vogelsong (4-2) has been strong in the month of May. He's allowed just four runs in five starts this month, lowering his ERA to 4.24. He'll look to keep rolling Monday against the Pirates.


Giants' Ryan Vogelsong pitches 6 scoreless innings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong went six innings without allowing an earned run during Friday night's 11-8 win over the Rockies. 

Even though his relievers gave up eight runs, Vogelsong was still able to get credit for the win thanks to some great run support from his offense. Vogelsong finished the game with five strikeouts and three walks. 

Vogelsong gave up only two hits throughout the game. He now has a 4.60 ERA for the season. 

Vogelsong's next start is now projected for May 27 against the Brewers.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong allowed two runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in San Francisco's 11-2 win over the Reds on Saturday. 

Vogelsong worked efficiently through the first five innings of the game before finding issues in the sixth. He allowed a solo home run to Jay Bruce before putting two men on bsae and getting pulled. One of the runs would score on a Skip Schumaker double. 

Vogelsong, now 2-2, moved his ERA to 5.31 in 39 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling on Friday against the Rockies.

Vogelsong (0-2) gave up a pair of home runs in his season debut and two more in his most recent start, which also came against the Dodgers, before getting lit up Wednesday. The Dodgers managed three home runs in the first inning alone en route to the win.

Vogelsong owns a 9.31 ERA and 17:11 K:BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings in addition to giving up eight home runs. Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters after the game that the struggling righty will remain in the rotation, CSN Bay Area reports.

His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Padres at home.

After the game, manager Bruce Bochy announced Vogelsong will remain in the Giants' starting rotation.

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.”
