The San Francisco Giants recalled RP Ramon Ramirez from Triple-A Fresno Wednesday, May 29, and optioned SP Michael Kickham to Fresno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Chad Gaudin and Shane Loux are the favorites to join the rotation and start Sunday. Loux might have the advantage since he's been starting in the minors and is coming off a solid outing for Fresno. Both options don't have much upside and thus aren't intriguing fantasy pick-ups.

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong (hand) will have surgery Tuesday, May 21, and he'll likely have pins inserted to stabilize his hand and help speed up the healing process. He broke two bones in his right pinkie and dislocated a knuckle that the training staff couldn't pop back into place.
Fantasy Tip: This is very discouraging for Vogelsong and his owners, since it was easily his best start of what has been a disappointing season so far. It's safe to drop him in most mixed leagues. Shane Loux and Chad Gaudin are rotation candidates, but they don't inspire much excitement.
