Report: Vogelsong changes course, could return to SF
Ryan Vogelsong was believed to be close to a deal with the Astros, but according to a tweet from FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, the veteran right-hander has changed course and is now in serious discussions with the Giants.
Earlier Wednesday night, MLB.com’s Chris Haft reported that the Giants and Vogelsong were maintaining contact, despite reports linking the 37-year-old elsewhere.
Vogelsong went 8-13 with an ERA of 4.00 for the Giants in 2014. He struggled in the postseason, too, with an 8.76 ERA in four appearances.
It’s not certain Vogelsong would have a guaranteed spot in the Giants’ starting rotation. But with Matt Cain (right elbow) and Tim Hudson (right ankle) dealing with injuries, Vogelsong could add some much-needed depth.
