Giants | Ryan Vogelsong to stay in rotation

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:07:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will stay in the starting rotation, manager Bruce Bochy confirmed. Vogelsong's next start will come against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) had a rough start to the year pitching in relief, but he bounced back with a solid outing against the Dodgers Thursday Thursday. Vogelsong won't be all that attractive at FantasyScore, and he'll purely be a matchup play, preferably at pitcher-friendly locations.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong starting Thursday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:58:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong is starting against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) allowed seven earned runs through 4 2/3 innings in his only start of the season, and the Dodgers bring an admirable offense to face him. Despite his minimal cap hit, start Vogelsong at your own risk in FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong might start Thurs.

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 20:24:30 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong is a candidate to start Thursday, April 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers, filling in for the injured SP Jake Peavy (back). There has been no official announcement from manager Bruce Bochy, although Vogelsong was among the other starting pitchers taking batting practice Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong is not a recommended FantasyScore option, even at a tempting price of $3,200 (or 6.4% of cap), against a strong Dodgers lineup. That is, if he even starts. That is still up in the air.

Giants | Jake Peavy has lower back strain

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 12:24:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain. He had been scheduled to make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 23. Manager Bruce Bochy is uncertain how his spot in the rotation will be filled but the club could turn to Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit for a spot start or promote a starter from the minors. Bochy also mentioned the team could use a four-man rotation for the next week but it would require some of their starters to pitch on short rest.

Fantasy Tip: It is still uncertain how much time Peavy is expected to miss. Both Vogelsong ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Petit have struggled this season and neither pitcher would make a viable FantasyScore option Thursday.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong headed to 'pen

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:49:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong appears destined to move to the bullpen and pitch in long relief, with SP Chris Heston joining the rotation and SP Jake Peavy (back) holding up after a back injury.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) loses whatever little fantasy value he had left with a move to the bullpen. He struggled in his season debut against the Arizona Diamondbacks the other night. However, there's a decent chance that he could see another turn in the rotation if another injury crops up.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 09:06:16 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will receive the start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, April 7, after both SPs Matt Cain (forearm) and Jake Peavy (back) were scratched due to injuries. SPs Tim Lincecum and Chris Heston are both options to face the Snakes Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) went 8-13 for the Giants last year with a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP while striking out 151 batters in 184 2/3 innings over 32 starts. Last year against Arizona, he went 1-2 with a 4.40 ERA. Vogelsong also fared much better at home in 2014. He's a cheap option at FantasyScore and worth considering against a D-backs squad that is a bit offensively challenged.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong has an opening

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 07:41:17 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will likely remain in the rotation as SP Matt Cain (forearm) is almost certainly headed to the disabled list with a right flexor strain.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) doesn't have a ton of upside, but he'll be available to use as a cheap starter the first few weeks on FantasyScore.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong to start Tuesday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 23:02:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will start Tuesday, April 7, against the Arizona Diamondbacks with SP Jake Peavy (back) scratched due to a back issue.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong is a nice FantasyScore bargain at just $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) for Tuesday's outing.

Giants | Jake Peavy may be push back

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 09:36:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (arm) may have his first start of the season pushed back since he has been dealing with dead arm during spring training. Peavy likely would start the sixth game of the season if he is given more time to prepare his arm. SP Ryan Vogelsong would start the second game of the season if Peavy is pushed back.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Peavy ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will be able to pitch. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Peavy until he is able to make a few starts and show his arm is fine. Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) probably is not the best option for owners.

Giants | Tim Hudson behind in camp

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 09:58:35 -0800

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) is behind in his preseason preparation because of his right ankle surgery, according to manager Bruce Bochy. However, SPs Ryan Vogelsong or Gregorio Petit could step in for Hudson if needed.

Fantasy Tip: At Hudson's age (39), we wouldn't be surprised at all if he's not ready for the regular season. Vogelsong and Petit could easily be asked to take over for Hudson during the year, too, if he's not performing up to standards. Hudson should be left to the waiver wire in standard leagues.
