Cubs' Kyle Schwarber hits grand slam on Thursday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) 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|
|(3/5/15) 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.

|(3/1/15) 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|
|(2/18/15) 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.
Ryan Vogelsong signs one-year, $4 million deal with Giants
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) Free-agent pitcher Ryan Vogelsong has a one-year agreement with the San Francisco Giants, pending a physical, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms on Friday. The team announced Friday.
Heyman reports Vogelsong's deal will pay him $4 million, plus incentives.
The 37-year-old Vogelsong, who was an All-Star on 2011, pitched with the club for the past four years. He went 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA in 32 starts for the Giants in 2014. He registered a 3.74 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP and 515:219 K:BB ratio over the last four seasons.
|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.
