09:31 AM ET 05.22 | In a move that could have long-lasting effects on the NL West race this season, the San Francisco Giants placed starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right hand on Tuesday. Vogelsong was injured while at the plate on Monday night after swinging at an inside fastball from Washington's Craig Stammen, and the fact that he was injured while off of the mound makes the injury that much more painful. The proposed timetable for Vogelsong's injury is four to six weeks but it is expected that he will need a rehab stint before returning to the big league club. That could place his return in late July/early August, and with the Giants in the race for a playoff spot, the injury really stings.

He hasn't been pitching that well anyway. Not sure how much of a blow this represents.
