Ryan Vogelsong Placed On DL

With Ryan Vogelsong sidelined for the foreseeable future, the San Francisco Giants are facing more change and challenges for their struggling starting rotation.

The Giants placed Vogelsong on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, a day after he broke his hand on a swing, and prepared to be without their right-hander for up to two months after he underwent surgery Tuesday.

Vogelsong had five pins inserted in his hand during the procedure at Stanford. The expected recovery time is six to eight weeks until Vogelsong is pitching again, but he likely would need a rehab assignment before rejoining the Giants.
