Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong signs with Pittsburgh

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:09:20 -0800

Free-agent SP Ryan Vogelsong (Giants) signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Dec. 18. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong owns a 4.63 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP and a 6.9 K/9 over the past three seasons, and he was bumped from the starting rotation in 2015. Entering his age-38 season, there isn't a lot to like about the veteran in fantasy circles. At best, he is a spot starter for Pittsburgh who could land in the right matchup to roll the dice on him as a streamer or FantasyScore flier.

Giants | Tim Hudson nearing the end

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 09:06:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson said that he plans to retire at the end of this season after he threw six innings in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, Sept. 8. "I feel like it's the right thing to do, the right time for my family," Hudson said of retirement. "I played this game a lot longer than I thought I would and had a long career. Nights like tonight are very gratifying to go out there in this stage in my career to give my team a chance to win." After his impressive start, manager Bruce Bochy said Hudson will rejoin the rotation and replace SP Ryan Vogelsong, who worked in relief Monday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The grizzled veteran put on quite the performance last night against the D-backs, even adding a home run. Despite a return to the rotation, Hudson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) shouldn't be very attractive to owners in fantasy leagues with the season winding down. His performance last night is probably the best we'll see out of him for the rest of his final season.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong struggles again

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 01:15:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong gave up three runs in the first inning and took the loss as the Giants fell 5-2 to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, Aug. 23. Vogelsong dropped to 9-9 overall.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) pitched Sunday at PNC Park, where he went 6-13 with a 6.06 ERA, so this outing may have been predictable. Vogelsong has been up and down this season, but entering this game he had been 3-2 with a 2.57 ERA after the All-Star break. As long as he is this uneven, you may want to steer clear.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong to make another start

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 21:38:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will make the start Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals with SP Mike Leake (hamstring) staying on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will be opposed by Lance Lynn and a good St. Louis offense in their own home park, so it's probably wise to take a pass on him in FantasyScore.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong earns win

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 05:01:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong won for the first time since June 24 as the Giants earned a 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals. Vogelsong (8-8) allowed one run on three hits, struck out eight and walked four over five innings for his first victory in five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been streaky as of late, but the team hasn't helped matters either. The Giants won for only the second time in seven games. In some of those games the offense didn't hit for Vogelsong. Keep an eye on his matchups before making him a FantasyScore pick.

Giants | Mike Leake on track for Tuesday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:32:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake (hamstring) has passed all of his tests and is on track to come off the disabled list and start against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, Aug. 18. SP Ryan Vogelsong will make one more start in Leake's place Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been an excellent value play on FantasyScore this year, but using him in his first start off the DL against the team with the best record in baseball next week seems like too big of a risk.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong suffers loss Friday

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 17:53:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong (7-8) allowed three runs on six hits over four innings in a loss to the Chicago Cubs Friday, Aug. 7, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), who has dropped three consecutive decisions, was starting in place of the injured Mike Leake (hamstring) and is likely to remain in the rotation until he returns from the disabled list. Vogelsong is scheduled to make his next start against the Washington Nationals Thursday, Aug. 13, but is not a great FantasyScore option.

Giants | Mike Leake scratched Friday

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 15:39:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake (hamstring) was scratched from his scheduled start Friday, Aug. 7, due to a mild left hamstring strain. SP Ryan Vogelsong will make the start in Leake's place.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings since moving to the bullpen, but he had allowed four earned runs in two of three of his last starts. FantasyScore owners should avoid Vogelsong, as he lacks the strikeout upside. Leake ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should be stashed wherever he's owned, unless the injury is revealed to be more serious than originally believed.

Giants | Ryan Vogelsong moved to bullpen

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:21:07 -0700

The San Francisco Giants have moved P Ryan Vogelsong from the starting rotation to the bullpen. He is 6-6 with a 4.23 ERA in 18 games this season, 16 of which were starts.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) was demoted to the bullpen in anticipation of Tim Hudson (shoulder) coming off the disabled list to start against the San Diego Padres Monday, July 20. As long as he's pitching in relief, he will have no FantasyScore value.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera back in two-spot

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:59:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is starting in center field and hitting second in the order Sunday, June 7, against the San Francisco Giants and RHP Ryan Vogelsong. OF Jeff Francoeur is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting just .232 against righties, but he has hit nine doubles and his lone home run against right-handed pitchers this season. With Vogelsong prone to the occasional disaster, Herrera can be used in GPP tournaments.
