And So It Begins – Ryan Vogelsong Out At Least 10 Days

By Bryan Rose

What? You didn’t think it would be that easy, did you?

With a hat tip to our own Stuart Jones, Janie McCauley is reporting that Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong will miss at least the first ten days of Spring with an injured back:

"Giants RHP Ryan Vogelsong says he will miss at least first 10 days after straining his back squatting Feb. 7. Wants to be cautious."

The injury isn’t deemed to be serious – nor should it linger, but for a team so riddled with injuries in 2011 – the 2012 Spring isn’t exactly starting off on the right foot.

Vogelsong and the Giants are using the utmost caution with the injury (as they plan to do with any of their major parts and their injuries) – so it might be two weeks or more before we see Vogey in any baseball related activities.
