Fantasy Impact: Ryan Vogelsong had multiple suitors this offseason, as his name was tied to the Twins, Rockies and Astros before he decided to return to the City by the Bay. Vogelsong had a miserable 2013 campaign, but bounced back slightly to the tune of a 4.00 and a 1.29 WHIP in 2014. His 7.36 K/9 was good for 19th in the NL among starters. He'll be 38 before the 2015 campaign is over & is likely not worth a roster slot on draft day. In 16 home starts last season, he had a 3.06 ERA & a 1.07 WHIP while giving up only two home runs. If he keeps this up, Vogelsong at home is a viable 2015 streaming option, especially in deeper or NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Impact: The Rockies are in need of rotation help and according to Jon Morosi, they want a right handed starter. Vogelsong went 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA in 184.2 innings last season for the San Francisco Giants. He is nothing more than an innings eater and making a move to Coors Field will more than likely not bode well for him. Do not draft Vogelsong in any drafts, he is a plug-and-play based on match-ups in daily leagues at this stage in his career.

Fantasy Impact: Since his return from his stint in Japan, Vogelsong has been up-and-down for the Giants. He lit the world on fire with a 2.71 ERA in 2011 and 3.37 in 2012, but since then he has had an ERA over 4.00. "Vogey" plays in the NL West, which slightly inflated his numbers. In a resurgent AL Central and in his age 38 season, Vogelsong offers little value.
