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.

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.
