Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says the San Francisco Giants are being extremely conservative with Ryan Vogelsong in his return from a strained back. Bruce Bochy said Vogelsong will get three spring starts, and the Giants are preparing to skip his first regular-season spot in the rotation if necessary.The good news is Eric Surkamp pitched three great innings against Seattle on Sunday. Surkamp is out to prove that he should be the first guy in line if the Giants need a spot start or to replace someone in the rotation.Vogelsong feels he’s ready after his last bullpen session on Sunday.“I think they just want to make sure that my stamina is OK,” Vogelsong said. “But everything feels good. My back feels good and I didn’t get tired. Everything is good.”What’s your thoughts on Vogelsong being ready and Surkamp being ready to step in?~King of Cali (Steven)SF Giants Rumors Facebook@SFGiants_Rumors // addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sfgiantsbaseball.net%2Fsf-giant...

SF Giants Rumors: Sanchez Needs AB’s, Posey To DH Today, Wilson Will Get An Inning, Vogelsong Gets Another Bullpen Session

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle says Freddy Sanchez is looking forward to returning to second base this week.

Meet Your New Giants: Melky Cabrera

And that is all you need to know about Spring Training stats. But oh, oh my, I wish it was real. Right now, with 24 at-bats (tied for the most on the team so far this spring), Cabrera’s batting .542 with four doubles and three home runs.  I won’t even worry about the lack of walks because he’s struck out just once.  That’s some big numbers right there. If his and Brandon...

Progress stalls on Cain's contract talks

The chances of the San Francisco Giants signing right-hander Matt Cain to a contract extension before Opening Day are rapidly diminishing.

Giants' Romo working to build memorable career

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- When Sergio Romo cruised past friends in his charcoal gray used 1993 Ford Thunderbird as a high school senior in Brawley, Calif., he beamed with pride.

Ranking the Giants top 10 fantasy players

I’ve been playing fantasy sports – primarily baseball – since I was a young, five-foot seventh grader at Hyde middle school. Over the years I’ve accumilated my own philosophy in drafting and then sealing the championship with free agent pickups. The trick?

RotoWire MLB San Francisco Giants Preview

The Giants followed their World Series winning season by failing to make the playoffs last year, finishing 86-76. A major injury to Buster Posey certainly didn't help, as an already anemic offense got even worse. In fact, they scored by far the fewest runs in the National League. San Francisco's .303 team on-base percentage was also last in the Senior Circuit. The team'...
