Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong solid in rehab outing

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 20:34:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (face) made the second of his scheduled minor-league rehab outings Wednesday, July 27, allowing two runs and five hits over seven innings.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong might be nearing a return, but it's uncertain if he'll be plugged into the rotation or work in long relief. For now, he is only worth scooping up in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues.

Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong impressive in rehab start

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:47:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates P Ryan Vogelsong (face) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in his fourth rehab start for Class AAA Indianapolis Wednesday, July 27, with two walks and one strikeout. He threw 83 pitches and allowed both runs on solo homers.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong was originally expected to pitch out of the bullpen when he returns from the disabled list but now there is a chance that he could join the team's depleted rotation, especially since the 39-year-old right-hander has been stretched out. When healthy, he should be viewed as an option for deeper NL-only seasonal leagues.

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:02:40 -0700

He left his last rehab start due to a stiff neck. Manager Clint Hurdle said the plan is for Vogelsong to go seven innings or at least 95 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong is working his way back slowly. When healthy he is only worth a look in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats.

Pirates | Ryan Vogelsong to make rehab start

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:23:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Ryan Vogelsong (face, neck) is scheduled to start for Class AAA Indianapolis Wednesday, July 27. Manager Clint Hurdle said he hopes Vogelsong will be able to pitch seven innings or throw 90 to 95 pitches during the start.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Vogelsong is close to returning from his injury, but it is not known if he will be a starter or a reliever for the team. He should be decent starting option in NL-only leagues if he joins the starting rotation but would not have much value if joins the bullpen.
