Sat, 16 Jul 2016 05:18:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (face) pitched six scoreless innings in a rehab start for Class AA Altoona Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong probably will make at least one more rehab start before he is able to be activated from the disabled list. He should be available out of the bullpen when he returns and will not have much fantasy value.

Pittsburgh Pirates RP Ryan Vogelsong (face) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, July 7, according to trainer Todd Tomczyk.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (face) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with facial fractures Tuesday, May 24.

Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong sustained injury to eye

Mon, 23 May 2016 14:27:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (eye) injured his left eye when he was hit by a pitch Monday, May 23, according to team trainer Todd Tomczyk. He's at a local hospital.

Fantasy Tip: It's an unfortunate break for the 38-year-old, who was looking solid in his second start of the season before having to leave the contest after being drilled by a pitch while up at bat. It remains to be seen how long he'll be out, but regardless, Vogelsong isn't someone to monitor, as he was simply getting a spot start here.

Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong hit in head

Mon, 23 May 2016 10:24:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (head) was removed from his start early after taking a ball to the head while batting in the bottom of the second inning against the Colorado Rockies Monday, May 23. He was carted off the field.

Fantasy Tip: It didn't sound or look good. Vogelsong was making a spot start in a makeup game Monday, so his fantasy value is minimal and should remain on the waiver wire. He'll likely undergo concussion testing. Stay tuned for more information on his status moving forward. If he lands on the DL, it could be the opportunity Pittsburgh was looking for to call up prospects Tyler Glasnow or Jameson Taillon. Both youngsters should already be stashed in most leagues.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano to miss start

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:08:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong will start Wednesday, April 13, versus the Detroit Tigers. He's filling in for SP Francisco Liriano (hamstring), who has right hamstring discomfort and is being considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong will be making his first start as a Pirate in his second tenure with the club, but he's someone that should be avoided in just about all fantasy formats. Aside from his inconsistency, the 38-year-old will have an ultra-tough assignment, as Detroit currently sports one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball. As for Liriano, it looks like he'll be OK for his next start.

Pirates | Juan Nicasio cracks rotation

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 13:23:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio will be the fifth starter to start the season, and SP Ryan Vogelsong will pitch out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Nicasio had a sterling spring with 24 strikeouts through 15 scoreless innings, and he has begun to climb up draft boards. However, the 29-year-old righty has 439 1/3 innings in the league without ever being a strong fantasy option. Don't overvalue him, but at the same time, don't shy away from using a late-round pick in mixed leagues on Nicasio. Vogelsong is nothing more than a low-end option in NL-only formats.

Pirates | Jeff Locke makes rotation

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 15:31:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke will be in the starting rotation to begin the year. SPs Ryan Vogelsong and Juan Nicasio are still battling for the fifth and final spot. Locke has been experimenting with a new windup delivery this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Locke saw some control gains last year associated with more mechanical changes, but the bottom line is he doesn't generate enough swings and misses to be viable outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Nicasio has been a big spring surprise with heavy strikeout numbers and could become the Bucs' latest reclamation project if he wins the job. Take a flier on him in deeper leagues.
