Giants' Vogelsong serves up four homers in loss Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong lasted just three innings in a loss Wednesday, giving up six earned runs on five hits, including four home runs, and one walk while striking out two in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Dodgers.
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.
"We need him right now," Bochy said. "We've got a couple pitchers on the DL. Hopefully he puts this behind him."
His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Padres at home.

|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong will make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Dodgers and won't be skipped, according to the Mercury News.
Vogelsong has been filling in for the injured Matt Cain in the starting rotation, making two starts with an 0-1 record in 16 1/3 innings with a 7.71 ERA.
Giants' Ryan Vogelsong allows 2 runs, to stay in rotation
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) 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|
|(4/22/15) 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|
|(4/21/15) 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.
|2014 Summary: While Ryan Vogelsong rebounded from a dismal 2013 season, he didn't exactly tear it up in 2014. His strikeout, walk and home run rates were not markedly different from the ones he posted in his first two season with the Giants, but he didn't enjoy the same level of success this time around. In those years, Vogelsong benefitted from above-average strand rates, but he regressed to a 71 percent rate last year. Without a high strand rate, Vogelsong's mediocre peripherals resulted in an 8-13 record and a 4.00 ERA.|
Playing time status: After an underwhelming season, Vogelsong may not be in high demand on the free agent market, but he should find work as a starter.
2015 Outlook: At 37, Vogelsong is not a strong candidate for a rebound, and a repeat of his 2014 season won't cut it in most mixed leagues. Only owners in league-specific formats should target Vogelsong on Draft Day.
