For the first time in his career, Barry Zito will be going on the DL with a sprained foot. Ryan Vogelsong’s contract was purchased from Fresno and will likely take Zito’s place in the rotation. There was no corresponding move made because the Giants had 39 men on their roster.
In two starts with Fresno, Vogelsong is 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA. He pitched 11.1 innings (so this is a small sample size), gave up 8 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned runs, walked 5 and struck out 17.
