The Giants' projected starting rotation in 2015: Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum.
Where does that leave Ryan Vogelsong?
The 37-year old free agent has had discussions with the Colorado Rockies, according to a Fox Sports report.
Over nine career appearances at Coors Field, he is 2-3 with a 7.92 ERA.
During the Giants' 2014 championship parade, Vogelsong made it clear that he will definitely pitch in 2015 and hoped to return to San Francisco.
“I mean, where else would I rather be?” Vogelsong said. “They got priorities to take care of before me and that’s fine. Whenever they get to me, they get to me...
“Last year I felt I needed to come back here and prove something, and you know what? I feel that way again. I feel like I threw the ball well a lot of the time this season and didn’t get the results. So I’ve got something to prove. And I think you guys know me well enough to know whenever that’s the case, it’s usually a good thing...
“It stinks to not know where you’re going to be, but it’s exciting not knowing what’s going to happen.”
Vogelsong went 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA over 32 regular season starts with San Francisco last season.
He registered a 7.15 ERA and took a no-decision in each of his three 2014 postseason starts (Game 4 of the NLDS, Game 4 of the NLCS, and Game 4 of the World Series) but the Giants won all three games.
During San Francisco's run to the 2012 World Series title, Vogelsong went 3-0 with a 1.09 ERA over four playoff starts.
The Giants drafted Vogelsong in the fifth round of the 1998 draft, and in July 2001 traded him and Armando Rios to Pittsburgh for Jason Schmidt and John Vander Wal.
Vogelsong remained with the Pirates through the 2006 season, but was out of Major League Baseball from 2007 to 2010 before signing a minor league contract with the Giants in January 2011.
He shocked the baseball world by going 13-7 with a 2.71 ERA in 2011, reaching the All-Star Game for the first and only time in his career.
The Giants rewarded the journeyman with a two-year/$8 million deal, which included a $6.5 million club option in 2014.
Vogelsong was great again in 2012, amassing a 14-9 record and a 3.37 ERA.
A broken hand derailed his 2013 season, as Vogelsong made just 19 starts and went 4-6 with a 5.73 ERA.
San Francisco declined Vogelsong's '14 option, but later re-signed him to a one-year/$5 million contract.
