Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong has been out since breaking his hand on May 20. Friday he'll make his return to the hill getting the start against the Orioles. Manager Bruce Bochy told Vogelsong and reporters (including John Shea) Tuesday of the decision.

The 2013 season has thus far been a bit of a nightmare for Vogelsong. After a long journey back to the majors -- for the first time since 2006 -- he was an All-Star in 2011 and in the rotation for a World Series champion in 2012. But this season the 36-year-old right-hander is 2-4 with a 7.19 ERA and 1.72 WHIP and now missed a serious chunk of the season in recovering from a broken hand that required surgery.
