SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants and pitcher Ryan Vogelsong are moving forward into free agency, each prepared to explore their separate opportunities. Charles Harris Jersey . At the same time, neither side is ruling out a reunion or coming back together at some point. The Giants declined to exercise Vogelsongs $6.5 million contract option for 2014 on Monday, but the parties agreed to keep open the possibility of potential negotiations down the road about a deal. "The doors open for dicussions with Vogelsong, but were not actively talking right now," assistant general manager Bobby Evans said Monday night. "Both sides are going to do some exploration of the market before we dive into that. I think it was somewhat the complexity of our overall needs going into the market ... to explore those fully, we need more time, and unfortunately we had to make a decision today." Vogelsong went 4-6 with a 5.73 ERA in 19 starts and 103 2-3 innings during an injury-shortened season. He broke two bones in the right pinkie area of his pitching hand and also dislocated a knuckle on a swing May 20 and underwent surgery the next day. He had five pins inserted in his hand during the procedure at Stanford, performed by orthopedist Dr. Tim McAdams. Vogelsong won 13 and 14 games, respectively, the previous two seasons. He is due a $300,000 buyout. Evans said the Giants didnt offer Vogelsong a contract with a lower guaranteed salary. "We did not put anything on the table. Theres no formal process where we go from here," Evans said. "I think Ryan has always had interest in being a Giant, but he has the opportunity to explore other options. Today doesnt eliminate his chances of coming back." San Francisco has been in discussions with lefty reliever Javier Lopez, and Evans expects him to explore his options in free agency. "Theres an open mind about what could happen and were going to maintain contact," Evans said. The Giants already declined their 2014 options on Saturday for $126 million left-hander Barry Zito -- $18 million with a $7 million buyout -- and outfielder Andres Torres for $3 million with a $500,000 buyout. Yet with starters Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner each signed to long-term deals and two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum landing a $35 million, two-year contract Oct. 25. "These are three mainstays of our rotation, not only for the immediate past but going forward," Evans said. "This is the core of a solid rotation and we want to explore options on the market to make it better." In addition Monday, Evans said Giants 17-year-old outfielder Gustavo Cabrera -- a top prospect in the organization from last years international free-agent class -- flew to San Francisco for emergency surgery after an injury in his Dominican Republic home. The way Evans understands it, upon returning home from instructional league Cabrera slipped and tried to break his fall by raising his right arm but it went through glass and he nearly severed his wrist. The Giants top team of doctors worked on Cabrera, who is now able to move his fingers again. "How he flew to San Francisco in immense pain, Ill never know, a brave young man," Evans said. "Hes 17 years old. I dont think its career-threatening. We could be looking at a year or more of rehab to get him back to baseball activity." A right-handed hitter Cabrera batted .247 with two home runs, seven doubles, four triples and 22 RBIs with 21 stolen bases in 54 games for the Giants Dominican Summer League team this year. Dan Marino Jersey . The Boston Celtics hadnt played since the All-Star break. So the Suns 100-94 victory over Boston Wednesday night was an uphill affair, with Phoenix relying on balance rather than its trademark high energy. Byron Maxwell Jersey . A wide-eyed 18-year-old visiting North America for only the second time in his young life, Caboclo immediately noticed the "big tower" his new home is best known for. http://www.dolphinsteamauthenticshop.com/c-48-dolphins-mark-duper-jersey.aspx . The Sioux Falls Canaries scored two in the seventh and three more in the eighth to come back from a 3-0 deficit and defeat the Winnipeg Goldeyes 5-3 in front of 6,769 at Shaw Park on Sunday afternoon.The Toronto Blue Jays are in an unfamiliar position. With just over two months to go in the season, the Jays hold the second Wild Card spot, are 2 1/2 games behind the A.L. East-leading Baltimore Orioles and have a very realistic chance at making the postseason for the first time since 1993. But they also have holes - and injuries - in their lineup that could easily lead to the drought continuing for another year. With MLBs non-waiver trade deadline on Thursday, Blue Jays fans will be seeking additions of some sort for the stretch run. Realistically, general manager Alex Anthopoulos wont be able to pick up everything on his wish list. So the question is - what do the Blue Jays need the most in order to make the best possible run for the playoffs? Second Base With injuries to Brett Lawrie, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind, the Jays have had to run with a makeshift infield for the last little while, especially at second base. On Monday, Toronto picked up third baseman Danny Valencia, a player known for hitting lefties well over his career. Valencia has experience at second base as well, joining the likes of Munenori Kawasaki, Steve Tolleson and Ryan Goins, who have helped man the position for much of the season. With Lawrie (and the others) presumably close to returning, the Jays could keep the Canadian at third and continue with a platoon situation at second, or have Valencia play the hot corner while Lawrie jumps over to second which he did for a short stint earlier this season. There have been reports that the Blue Jays have shown interest in Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians, as well as the Arizona Diamondbacks Martin Prado and former Jay Aaron Hill. Is the return of Lawrie and the addition of Valencia enough for the Toronto infield, or should they get more? Starting Pitching You can never have enough starting pitching. The early season debate on whether it would be a good iidea to deal Marcus Stroman for a veteran arm may seem unrealistic at this point as the rookie has arguably become the ace of the staff. Brandon Doughty Jersey. . R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle (who hasnt won a game since June 1), Drew Hutchison and J.A. Happ have all had peaks and valleys to their seasons. The injured Brandon Morrow is still a little ways away from returning and when he does, it will likely be as a reliever. Aaron Sanchez, 22, has been sharp in his two appearances from the bullpen, but John Gibbons and the Jays brass has given no indication theyll use him in a starting role this season. So does Toronto need to add a starting hurler? Jon Lester and David Price have been rumoured to be on the market, but its unlikely the Rays or Red Sox would trade within their division unless the Blue Jays come up with an incredible offer. Toronto may have to set their bar a little lower if they want to add to the rotation. Bullpen The Blue Jays bullpen hasnt been horrible this year, but it also hasnt been to the level of a season ago. Steve Delabar was an All-Star in 2013, but has spent much of 2014 with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. Brett Cecil has seen an increase in his earned run average from last year and Sergio Santos never found his stride before being designated for assignment last week. Overall, Toronto has the fourth-worst reliever ERA in all of the majors at 4.37 and is tied for 10th in home runs allowed with 30. Casey Janssen, Aaron Loup, Todd Redmond and most recently Sanchez have been bright spots, but a playoff team can never have enough pitching depth. Antonio Bastardo of the Philadelphia Phillies is one player reportedly on the Jays radar. Are there any other areas on the diamond Toronto should consider investing in? What do the Blue Jays need the most in order to make the best possible run for the playoffs? As always, its Your! Call.
