Giants, Ryan Vogelsong agree on $4 million deal

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A person with knowledge of the contract says free agent right-hander Ryan Vogelsong has reached agreement on a $4 million, one-year deal to stay with the San Francisco Giants.

Vogelsong's contract with the defending World Series champions is pending a physical, the person said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the deal.

The agreement was reached three days after general manager Brian Sabean said Vogelsong was close to joining another team - thought to be the Houston Astros.

Vogelsong went 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA in 32 starts last season. The 37-year-old adds depth to a rotation that features ace Madison Bumgarner, Jake Peavy, Tim Hudson, Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain, who is working back from elbow surgery.
