Vogelsong (2-3) allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

He's done yeoman's work filling out the back of the Pirates' rotation in August, posting a 2.28 ERA and 17:7 K:BB in 23.2 innings over four starts, although Vogelsong's ERA is a little deceptive considering he's given up four unearned runs in that stretch. He'll next take the mound Friday in Milwaukee.

Vogelsong (2-2) allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks with a strikeout over 5.2 innings in a win Monday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Vogelsong failed to record a quality start for the first time in three starts since he rejoined the rotation August 4. He was undone by a pair of solo home runs and couldn't miss bats, as he drew just one swinging strike in 94 pitches. Vogelsong gave up 17 home runs in 135 innings (1.1 HR/9) as he allowed a 4.67 ERA in 2015, and his struggles in that department are still there (five HR in 39.1 innings, 1.1 HR/9). He owns a solid 3.20 ERA, but he'll have to keep the ball in the yard if he wants to maintain it.

Vogelsong (1-2) pitched extremely well but took the loss Wednesday against the Padres. He allowed two unearned runs on three hits, struck out five and walked one in the defeat.

EDGE Analysis

The Pirates didn't give Vogelsong any run support, as they recorded a season-low two hits, and two errors in the second inning led to the two runs he allowed. Vogelsong has given up one earned run in 12 frames since returning from the disabled list, but he hasn't won either game because the Pirates have supplied him two runs combined in those two outings. Vogelsong now has a 2.67 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 33.2 innings over four starts and 10 relief appearances this season. After two great outings, he should remain in the starting rotation.

Vogelsong, coming back from a layoff of more than two months after being hit in the face by a pitch, held the Braves to a single run on three hits and a walk while striking out six over six strong innings Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He didn't receive a decision thanks to opposing starter Tyrell Jenkins matching him inning for inning, ruining a sparkling return for Vogelsong after a scary injury that required him to get eye surgery. The 39-year-old righty had the bad luck to get drilled in the face in his very first start of the year after coming out of the bullpen to start the season, but a rotation spot was still waiting for him upon his return. Now in the twilight of his career, he isn't an exciting fantasy starter even on his best days, but Vogelsong has it in him to turn out the occasional strong outing like this one. Having friendly matchups certainly helps.

Vogelsong was recalled to start Thursday's game against Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Vogelsong made four rehab starts as he returned from a neck injury that sidelined him since May. He pitched to a 2.86 ERA over 22 combined innings between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. The 39-year-old is now set to toe this hill Thursday as he faces off against Tyrell Jenkins and the Braves. In order to make room on the depth chart, Max Moroff was optioned to Triple-A.

Vogelsong (neck) will start for the Pirates Thursday against the Braves, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the first Major League appearance since May 23 for Vogelsong, who has been recovering from an eye procedure that was performed after he was hit in the head with a pitch. He'll get the starting nod Thursday and should be a short-term rotation option, but he could be slated for long relief in the long run, especially if the 52-50 Pirates decide to take a closer look at their young arms down the stretch.

Vogelsong (neck) hurled seven innings of two-run ball Wednesday for Triple-A Indianapolis and could become a candidate for Pittsburgh's rotation in the coming week.

EDGE Analysis

Depending upon what roster moves transpire at the trade deadline, Vogelsong will either return to the rotation or bullpen. The 39-year-old righty would be looked upon as an innings eater if he came back as a starter. He made just two starts in 12 appearances before suffering a serious eye injury while batting in May.

Vogelsong (neck) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The plan is for Vogelsong to pitch seven innings or throw 90-95 pitches, whichever comes first. By the looks of it, the Pirates plan to slot Vogelsong into the rotation when he is activated from the disabled list. Vogelsong has pitched in 12 games for the Pirates this season, starting just two of them.

Vogelsong (neck) will play catch today after being pulled from Wednesday's rehab outing due to neck soreness, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vogelsong left Wednesday's Triple-A rehab outing after four innings because of neck soreness, completely unrelated to the eye injury that's kept him out of action since May. He was expected to come off the DL Saturday but because of his neck issue, he'll be sidelined a few more days as he works out the kinks. If all goes well when he plays catch, he'll likely not require another rehab outing and could be activated early next week.

Vogelsong (eye) will throw a side session Sunday and make another rehab start next week, possibly Wednesday for Triple-A Indianapolis, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

The righty threw six innings of shutout ball for Double-A Altoona on Friday. Vogelsong was making just his second start in 12 appearances May 23 when he was struck in the eye by a pitched ball while batting. He'll likely serve as an innings-eating reliever upon his return.
