Ryan Vogelsong takes another loss Saturday vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was hung with a loss Saturday after giving up four runs (two earned) on eight hits and one walk in six innings and striking out four in his team's 5-0 defeat against the Dodgers.

Vogelsong (5-8) is 0-5 in his last six starts, and his offense has failed to score a single run of support in four of his five July outings. The one time his team scored more than one run during his last six games, Vogelsong lasted just three innings. He owns a 3.94 ERA and 101:33 K:BB ratio in 118 2/3 innings. Vogelsong is slated to face the Mets Friday.


Ryan Vogelsong settles for no-decision Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong wasn't a factor into the decision Monday night against the Phillies in Philadelphia. The right-hander was lifted after three innings and permitted four runs -- three earned -- and 11 hits, with three strikeouts and no walks. Of his 82 pitches, only 51 were strikes.

Over his last three starts covering 14 2/3 innings, Vogelsong has allowed eight earned runs. He owns a 3.99 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over 20 starts (112 2/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday at home against the Dodgers.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Giants manager Bruce Bochy revealed his post-break pitching plans, MLB.com reports.

The Giants will roll with Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum to open a three-game set in Miami. Ryan Vogelsong will take the mound Monday and Matt Cain on Tuesday against the Phillies in Philadelphia.


Ryan Vogelsong surrenders two runs in loss Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was hung with his fourth straight loss Saturday after giving up two earned runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Diamondbacks.

Vogelsong (5-7) received exactly zero runs of support while on the mound for the fourth straight start, giving him yet another loss in a well-pitched game. He surrendered a solo home run in the fourth inning and another run after giving up a ground-rule double to begin the seventh. Vogelsong owns a 3.86 ERA and 94:32 K:BB ratio in 109 2/3 innings heading into the All-Star break.


Ryan Vogelsong drops third straight decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was not sharp in a loss to the A's on Monday, dropping to 5-6 on the season. The right-hander permitted three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 5 1/3 innings of a 5-0 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 18 1/3 innings, Vogelsong has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.92 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 18 starts (103 1/3 innings). He will make his final start before the All-Star break on Saturday at home against Arizona.

Ryan Vogelsong gets little help in second straight loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong took his second tough-luck loss in a row Wednesday, in a 2-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Vogelsong tossed seven strong innings this time around, after he was forced to settle for a loss in six quality innings the last time out. He limited the Cardinals to two runs on six hits, while striking out eight batters and walking just one in the loss.

Vogelsong falls to 5-5 with the loss, despite his ERA dropping to 3.86 in 98 innings. The Giants have managed just three runs in his consecutive losses, so he will hope for better luck when takes on the Athletics Monday. 


Offense lets Ryan Vogelsong down in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong tossed the ball well, but got little help in a 3-1 loss to the Reds Thursday.

Vogelsong twirled his finest start since late May, but it wasn't enough as his offense provided little help. He limited the Reds to just one run on five hits in six innings, while striking out seven batters and walking none, but left in line for a loss in spite of his solid pitching.

Vogelsong dropped his ERA below 4.00 for the season with the start, as he is now 5-4 with a 3.96 ERA in 91 innings. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Cardinals.


Ryan Vogelsong gets boost from offense in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong wasn't at the top of his game Saturday, but the offense picked him up in a 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Vogelsong made it through just five innings on 94 pitches, but never trailed in the game. He allowed four runs on five hits, while walking three batters and striking out three on 54 strikes in the win.

Vogelsong's ERA rose to 4.13, the first time it has been over 4.00 in his last seven starts. He is 5-3 heading into his next start, set for Thursday against the Reds. 


Ryan Vogelsong gives up three runs in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong didn't factor into Saturday's decision after giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in five innings while striking out two in his team's 5-4 loss to the Rockies.

Vogelsong has failed to post a quality start in either of his last two starts, his first two-game stretch without a quality start since his first two outings of the season. He owns a 3.94 ERA and 68:26 K:BB ratio in 80 innings. Vogelsong is scheduled to face the Diamondbacks next Saturday.


Ryan Vogelsong surrenders five runs in loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was hung with a loss Monday after giving up five earned runs on nine hits and two walks in six-plus innings while striking out six in his team's 9-2 defeat against the Nationals.

Vogelsong (4-3) gave up a run in the first inning and a run in the second before surrendering two more in the third inning. He was able to keep the Giants at bay over the next three innings but then gave up two hits in the seventh and was removed, with only one of the runners scoring. Vogelsong owns a 3.72 ERA and 66:25 K:BB ratio in 75 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies Saturday.


Ryan Vogelsong keeps upping his value


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) You probably know that with his latest gem at Cincinnati Wednesday, Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong has a 2.05 ERA in his last eight starts. But you may not know that with a career-high nine strikeouts in that game, he's averaging 8.4 strikeouts per nine innings during that stretch.

I'll admit to falling into the trap of lumping him in with pitch-to-contact types like Jason Vargas and Bronson Arroyo whose final numbers figure to be strong but whose limited upside from start to start makes them not so appealing in shallower leagues. But that's really not the case. In 2011 and 2012, the years that put him on the map in Fantasy, Vogelsong averaged 7.2 strikeout per nine innings, which is just a little below league average.

No, he's not exactly an ace in waiting, but with that kind of strikeout rate, as long as he continues down this path in ERA and WHIP, Vogelsong is about as valuable as Doug Fister in shallower leagues.

And if you drop Fister in such a league, chances are you're not getting him back.


Ryan Vogelsong strikes out nine in win vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong picked up a win for the third time in four starts Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-2 victory over the Reds.

Vogelsong (4-2) delivered his highest strikeout total in a game since the 2012 postseason Wednesday while limiting the Reds to a pair of runs in the third inning. He owns a 3.39 ERA and 60:23 K:BB ratio in 69 innings as he heads into Monday's matchup with the Nationals.


Ryan Vogelsong stumbles in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong wasn't at his sharpest Thursday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

Vogelsong left the game in line for a loss, after allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings of work, but the offense and bullpen helped bail him out. He scattered seven hits and three walks -- his highest total in five starts -- while striking out five on 101 pitches.

Vogelsong remains 3-2 on the season, though his ERA rose to 3.45. His next start is set for Wednesday in Cincinnati. 


Ryan Vogelsong enters mixed-league discussion


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) In the two years prior to his lost 2013, when he had to ramp up early for the World Baseball Classic and then missed extensive time with a finger injury, Ryan Vogelsong was the exact same pitcher he is now.

Which makes his performance now a little more believable.

Yeah, he didn't start off well, which wasn't a great sign coming off a lost season, but since correcting what he described as a glaring mechanical flaw in late April, he has a 1.35 ERA in six starts, allowing more than one earned run in just one of them.

Now, he obviously won't maintain that pace going forward, but if we view it as a correction for his earlier struggles, his 3.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings on the year -- which again, aren't far off from his 2011 and 2012 numbers -- make him something like another Dan Haren.

Vogelsong isn't as high-end as Ian Kennedy or Josh Beckett and doesn't have the upside of Trevor Bauer or Rafael Montero, but as pitchers to stash on the back of your bench for the occasional two-start week go, he ranks pretty high.


Ryan Vogelsong stays dominant in win over Twins


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong remained dominant on Saturday against the Twins, limiting Minnesota to just three hits and one walk while striking out seven in 6 2/3 scoreless innings of a 2-1 win to improve to 3-2 on the year.

Over his last six starts covering 40 innings, Vogelsong has allowed only six earned runs. He owns a 3.20 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 46:19 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings. He'll make his next start Thursday at St. Louis.

Ryan Vogelsong stays dominant in win over Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong dominated the Marlins on Sunday, scattering only five hits in seven scoreless innings to improve to 2-2 on the year.

Vogelsong struck out six and walked one in 98 pitches, 62 for strikes. His ERA now stands at 3.62 on the year. Over his last five starts covering 33 1/3 innings, Vogelsong has allowed six earned runs.

Following the 4-1 home win on Sunday, Vogelsong will make his next start Saturday at home against Minnesota.

Ryan Vogelsong falls apart late in second loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong could not keep his strong run up Tuesday, in a  5-0 loss to the Braves.

Vogelsong started off his outing fine, limiting the Braves to one run in his first five innings of work. Unfortunately, the wheels came off in his sixth and final inning of work, as the Braves jumped on him for three runs in that frame. He finished the outing having allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out eight in six innings of work.

Vogelsong took the loss, his second of the season. He is 1-2 with a 4.22 ERA heading into his next outing, set for Sunday against the Marlins.  


Ryan Vogelsong gets little help in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong continued his personal renaissance Thursday, as he pitched well into the eighth inning against the Dodgers.

Vogelsong limited the Dodgers to just one run in 7 1/3 innings of work, but ultimately had nothing to show for it as the game headed into extra innings before the Giants won, 3-1. He allowed five hits, all singles, and walked two batters, while striking out two batters and throwing 64 of 104 pitches for strikes.

Vogelsong was dreadful to open the season, but has now allowed one run or fewer in four of his last five starts. He remains 1-1, while lowering his ERA to 3.93 through seven starts. He will look for his second win in his next trip to the mound, Tuesday against the Braves.

Ryan Vogelsong improves, still takes no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong got back on the right track, tossing his first quality start of the season in a 2-1 win over the Dodgers.

Vogelsong allowed just one run in six innings of work, but had to settle for his third no-decision in a row, as the offense only came to life in the seventh inning. He allowed his run on four hits and a pair of walks, while striking out two and picking up eight groundball outs.

Vogelsong lowered his ERA to 5.40, and he remains without a decision in three starts. He will go for his first win of the season in his next start, set for Monday in Colorado.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
