ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports that Giants manager Bruce Bochy has tabbed Tim Hudson for a start in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cardinals, and Ryan Vogelsong will toe the slab in Game 4. Bochy said, “We’re going to keep things in order” unless “things go a little crazy”.
Hudson twirled a gem in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Nationals, limiting them to one run on seven hits and no walks with eight strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings.
Vogelsong’s Game 4 start could potentially be a clincher if the Giants win their next two games against the Cardinals. Vogelsong held the Nationals to one run on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in Game 4 of the NLDS.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.
The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.
The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.
Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
