Giants To Play Ryan Vogelsong For Friday Start

Out since mid-May with a fractured hand, Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong is expected to come off the disabled list and pitch Friday against the Orioles.

Even before the injury Vogelsong’s rotation spot may have been in jeopardy because he posted a 7.09 ERA in nine starts, so it’ll be interesting to see how much patience the Giants show if he struggles initially. He’s essentially taking over Barry Zito‘s spot after the highly paid left-hander was bumped from the rotation over the weekend.
