Vogelsong returning to Giants?
The Giants and free-agent starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong are working towards a one-year deal, tweets Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Vogelsong has been linked to a number of clubs this offseason, and was in Houston earlier this week. But a deal with the Astros never happened and MLB.com’s Chris Haft reported Wednesday that a return to the Giants was possible for the right-hander.
Vogelsong, 37, would add depth and stability to the Giants rotation. He was 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA with the club in 2014, while his 32 starts were second only to Madison Bumgarner. Since joining San Francisco in 2011, Vogelsong has a 3.74 ERA and 39-35 record.
While it appears Vogelsong could be headed for a return to the Giants, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick tweeted Thursday morning that the Astros had not been told they were out of the running to land the pitcher.
