Let’s put the 1-5 road-trip behind us, and just be glad it’s in the past. The San Francisco Giants kicked off a homestand last night with a big win over the Nationals. Ryan Vogelsong looked like he finally found his groove till he fractured his finger and dislocated his joint in the pinky finger (pitching hand). He’s scheduled to have surgery today, and is likely out for 6 weeks or more.
The Giants have an off day before Vogelsong’s spot in the rotation, so they don’t have to add another starter as of yet. However, I would think they would, so the rest of the staff can use that extra day of rest.
Chad Gaudin is in the running to fill that spot in the rotation, or the Giants can call up Mike Kickham and give him a shot to hold it down till Vogelsong returns. Kickham’s 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in his last 4 starts.

In what had been his best start of the 2013 season, Ryan Vogelsong was injured during an at-bat in Monday’s game against the Nationals. On a poorly timed swing, a pitch from Craig Stammen appeared to deflect off of Vogey’s right hand. Bochy and trainer Dave Groeschner came out to take a look at the hand before immediately escorting the right-hander into the dugout.

With Ryan Vogelsong sidelined for the foreseeable future, the San Francisco Giants are facing more change and challenges for their struggling starting rotation.
The Giants placed Vogelsong on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, a day after he broke his hand on a swing, and prepared to be without their right-hander for up to two months after he underwent surgery Tuesday.
I’m beginning to think that this just isn’t Ryan Vogelsong’s year. Even when he pitches well, it’s a letdown. On Monday night, Vogelsong pitched what was easily his best game of the season, tossing five shutout innings against the powerful Washington Nationals. As he was cruising right along, though, tragedy struck. While swinging at a pitch in the bottom of the fifth inning...
GiantsPod breaks Giants pitchers with bad ERAs. When Danny and I went to Fresno for a little Central Valley action in 2011, we saw Barry Zito take a bad spill off the mound and injure his foot. Now Ryan Vogelsong is broken. Worst of all, Vogey was having by far his best game of the season. One more inning of decent work would have given the right-hander just his second quality start...

This was the season the San Francisco Giants planned to give the 2012 World Championship team a chance to repeat the magic in 2013.
Other than improving the bullpen (Chad Gaudin for Guillermo Mota), changing back-up catchers (Guillermo Quiroz for Hector Sanchez) and back-up infielders (Nick Noonan for Ryan Theriot), this season's squad was the essentially same one that swept...
Last night was the pitching duel that everyone expected with Matt Cain (after his rocky 1st inning) on the mound against Stephen Strasburg. Both guys did their job to give their team a chance to win, and the San Francisco Giants needed some ninth inning magic to tie the game.
