Vogelsong ready for season debut vs. Bucs

DENVER -- Pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, who was an All-Star last season, will join the Giants in San Francisco and is scheduled to make his 2012 debut Sunday when he starts against the Pirates. In his second rehab start Wednesday, Vogelsong (lower back strain) pitched six innings for Triple-A Fresno at Las Vegas and allowed six hits and two runs with one walk and six strikeouts. He threw 90 pitches, 60 strikes, and was the winning pitcher in Fresno's 10-5 victory.

"He came out of that just fine," manager Bruce Bochy said. "It's all gone well with him, as well as it could. It's good to have him ready to get back in the rotation."
