All-Decade San Francisco Giants Rotation

Ryan Vogelsong

2011-2015

Vogelsong had it rough to start his career – originally with the Giants in 2000 – and after a stint in Japan, he came back to the Giants, and dazzled.

During his five-year stretch, Vogelsong held a 3.89 ERA and 623 strikeouts. He had an all-star season in 2011 and was unbeaten in the 2012 World Series.

In that 2012 World Series, Vogelsong started five games and was 3-0 with just three runs allowed in 24 2/3 innings.


Barry Zito

2010-2013

The last option was kind of tough and was between Zito and Jake Peavy. Zito gets the nod not only because he was with the Giants for more seasons but because he was impactful in the 2012 Championship Series and World Series.

Zito was towards the latter end of his career in the 2010s but still was a key piece in the rotation. He collected 15 wins in 2012 despite a 4.15 ERA in 32 starts. His WHIP over the four-year stretch maintained well at 1.447.

Zito will always be known for his devastating curveball that when paired with a good fastball made him untouchable.
