Ryan Vogelsong suffers back strain, down 7-10 days

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong suffered a back strain earlier this month while lifting weights in Pennsylvania. The 34-year-old starter is still in recovery mode, and won’t engage in normal spring training activities for another 7-10 days.

If Vogelsong can avoid setbacks he should have little trouble getting sufficiently tuned up for the start of the 2012 regular season. But it’s obviously not an ideal way for a guy to open spring camp.

Vogelsong revitalized his career in a big way last year, posting a surprising 2.71 ERA and 139/61 K/BB ratio in 179 2/3 innings. He was rewarded with a two-year, $8 million contract in January.

    Glad to see at least someone at HBT is working today. Thanks for the updates, Drew. Take notes, Calcaterra.

    Craig is “off” on weekends. He does silly things like spending time with family and such.

    So, hey, quit being an entitled assclown.

    Apologies, just an innocent joke at Craig’s expense. His posts always have a sense of humor to them and I highly enjoy them – in that same spirit I thought it would be funny… Sorry, Craig (honestly)
