Giants | Ryan Vogelsong suffers broken hand

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong (hand) suffered a fractured right hand after he was hit by a pitch Monday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: He'll probably be out at least two months, as it takes 4-6 weeks to heal. After that, he'll need 2-3 weeks to build his arm strength back up to pitch. The team doesn't have an obvious replacement. Shane Loux is 4-1 with a 3.68 ERA at Triple-A Fresno, but he's a 33-year-old journeyman. Chad Gaudin could be an option out of the bullpen. He has a 2.10 ERA and 24 K's in 25 2/3 innings.
