Vogelsong is at risk of having his next scheduled start skipped, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogelsong was originally pencilled in for a Wednesday start, but after Sunday's postponement, manager Bruce Bochy will push his entire rotation forward a day. This could leave Vogelsong on the chopping block, but the team has yet to make an official announcement.

Vogelsong was used in long-relief of Madison Bumgarner on Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits over 3.2 innings. He walked one and struck out two.

After Bumgarner was chased from Saturday's game, Vogelsong came in to the game simply to eat up innings. By using Vogelsong in this role, it has all but guaranteed that rookie pitcher, Chris Heston, will get the start on Monday.

Vogelsong allowed six earned runs in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, giving up two home runs and six hits in 4.2 innings.

This was the most earned runs Vogelsong had allowed in a game since May of 2013 when he gave up six earned runs in a game. He's coming off a year in which he struck out 7.36 batters per nine innings and had an ERA of 4.00,, which was the third lowest of any season in his 10-year career.

Vogelsong will start Tuesday's game, CSN Bay Area's Amy Gutierrez reports.

He gets the ball after Jake Peavy was scratched with a back issue. In other news, Matt Cain is experiencing forearm tightness, which is often a precursor for Tommy John surgery, so there seem to be some weak spots in the Giants' rotation to stat the season. Vogelsong was stretched out this spring as a precaution as Tim Lincecum was also ailing, so look for him to be able to pitch fairly deep into Tuesday's game.

Vogelsong will be stretched out as a precaution in case Tim Lincecum (back) isn't ready to begin the season, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogelsong's spot in the rotation is tentative, and Yusmeiro Petit will also be stretched out. The news doesn't add much fantasy value, but if Lincecum's injury ends up costing him extended time, it could.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that Vogelsong will enter spring training as a reliever, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.It was previously suggested that Vogelsong would get a chance to compete with Tim Lincecum for the final rotation spot after re-signing with the team late last month, but Bochy revealed Wednesday that Vogelsong will work out of the bullpen alongside Yusmeiro Petit in camp. Bochy did say it is a "workable situation," suggesting Lincecum will have to perform to keep the job, but it appears Vogelsong is currently penciled in for the swingman role.

Vogelsong agreed to a one-year contract with the Giants on Friday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Vogelsong's signing crowds the Giants' starting rotation, but it also provides the team with some insurance with both Matt Cain (elbow) and Tim Hudson (ankle) coming off injuries, and Tim Lincecum coming off another sub-par season. Assuming everyone is healthy by Opening Day, Vogelsong and Lincecum -- and possibly even Yusmeiro Petit -- figure to compete for the fifth spot in the rotation.
