Giants working to bring back Vogelsong

The Giants have told Ryan Vogelsong that they will decline his $6.5 million team option for next season, but the team is working on a new deal with the right-hander, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reported. According to the report, the Giants are interested in bringing back Vogelsong on a contract with a lower base salary, but with performance incentives.

Vogelsong was terrific for the Giants in 2011 (2.71 ERA in 28 starts) and 2012 (3.37 ERA in 31 starts), but had a tumultuous 2013. He finished with a 5.73 ERA in 19 starts and missed a large part of the season when he broke a bone in his pinkie finger after being hit by a pitch.

A’s ink Humber: The A’s agreed to a minor-league deal with right-hander Philip Humber, Bay Area News Group reported. The Houston Astros made Humber a free agent on Oct. 3 by declining a $3 million option for next year.

Tigers hire Ausmus: The Detroit Tigers named Brad Ausmus as their new manager to replace the retiring Jim Leyland. The 44-year-old former catcher played in the major leagues for 18 years but has no managerial experience.
