Ryan Vogelsong says Giants didn't show interest in new deal

Ryan Vogelsong's tenure with the San Francisco Giants appears to be over.

Vogelsong, who revived his career with the Giants in 2011 after a four-year absence from the major leagues, admitted Tuesday on MLB Network Radio that the club didn't share mutual interest in working out a new deal the last time they spoke.

The 37-year-old will thus have to look elsewhere this winter for work, ending a four-year stint in San Francisco where Vogelsong found a home after six disastrous years in the majors and a three-year stretch in Japan. 

After returning from Japan, Vogelsong signed a pair of fruitless minor-league contracts with the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Angels before landing a minor-league deal with the Giants in 2011 that included an invitation to spring training. Though he didn't make the team out of camp, Vogelsong quickly established himself as an invaluable member of the rotation following an injury to Barry Zito, crafting a 2.71 ERA over 179 2/3 innings en route to an improbable All-Star berth.

He enjoyed comparable success one season later, but has struggled over the last two years, fashioning a 4.62 ERA (75 ERA+) over 51 starts since the beginning of 2013.
