Player Notes
Giants re-signed RHP Ryan Vogelsong to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Advice: He'll have the chance to earn more through incentives. Vogelsong chose the Giants over the Astros even though he'll likely enter the season as a long reliever if Matt Cain (elbow) and Tim Hudson (ankle) progress as hoped. The 37-year-old held a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 32 starts with the defending champs last year.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Ryan Vogelsong has agreed to a one-year deal with the Giants, pending a physical.

Advice: Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says it's worth $4 million plus performance incentives. Vogelsong chose comfortability over role here, as he looks like, at best, the Giants' sixth starter, whereas he would've had a good shot to be the Astros' No. 5 man. The veteran right-hander will provide protection with both Matt Cain (elbow) and Tim Hudson (ankle) working their way back from surgery.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that it looks like a deal between the Giants and Ryan Vogelsong "will happen."

Advice: It's expected to be a one-year deal. Vogelsong was said to be in serious talks with the Astros, but he apparently had a change of heart at some point. The Giants have been on the lookout for another starter, so it makes sense that they are going in a familiar direction.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, the Astros have not been told that they're out of the running for free agent right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported late Wednesday night that Vogelsong had shifted course on the Astros after meeting with team officials Monday in Texas and was suddenly engaged in serious negotiations with the Giants. But that message apparently wasn't relayed to Houston. Vogelsong, 37, will likely have to settle for a one-year contract wherever he lands.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears Ryan Vogelsong is in "serious discussions" with the Giants.

Advice: That's quite a 180 from a day ago when most people assumed Vogelsong and the Astros would strike a one-year deal. With Tim Hudson's right ankle surgery, the 37-year-old Vogelsong may be given a chance to start with the Giants and could prefer to stay where he's comfortable. Vogelsong had a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 32 starts with the defending champs last year.

The Giants remain in contact with Ryan Vogelsong, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com.

Advice: Vogelsong's agent, Dave Meier, said he's maintained contact with the Giants on Vogelsong's behalf. His client was also reportedly in Houston recently, and reports had the Astros interested as well. Vogelsong, 37, will likely find a one-year deal wherever he lands.

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that Ryan Vogelsong's potential deal with the Astros would be for one year.

Advice: That's what you'd expect, given that Vogelsong will turn 38 in the middle of next season. The right-hander was in Houston on Monday to take a physical and left town without officially agreeing to a deal, but the feeling is that something will get done. Vogelsong posted a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 32 starts last season for the Giants.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears that the Astros and Ryan Vogelsong are hopeful for a deal and working through some final steps.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Monday that the two sides were in "serious discussions" and Vogelsong is in Houston, so it sounds like some mere formalities are in the way of making the deal official. No word yet on the terms involved.

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that free agent right-hander Ryan Vogelsong was in Houston on Monday.

Advice: The Astros are reportedly in "serious discussions" with Vogelsong and this suggests that he could be in town for a pre-signing physical. However, the free agent starter told McTaggart that he isn't ready to comment on the situation. Vogelsong, 38, posted a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 32 starts last season for the Giants. If signed, he would join Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh, Scott Feldman, and Brett Oberholtzer in Houston's rotation.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros are in "serious discussions" with Ryan Vogelsong.

Advice: Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle first reported of the Astros' interest in Vogelsong on Sunday, and it appears that they could be closing in on a deal. Houston just acquired Dan Straily to presumably slide into the No. 5 spot in the rotation, but it looks like they're going to add another arm to the mix. Vogelsong put up a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 32 starts last season for the Giants.
