  • San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong grabs his hand after being hit by a pitch against the Washington Nationals during the fifth inning of a baseball game on Monday, May 20, 2013 in San Francisco. Vogelsong left the game after the game.

Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong will have his surgically repaired pitching hand re-examined Tuesday with the hope of taking another step in his recovery.

Vogelsong broke two bones in his right pinkie area and also dislocated a knuckle in the hand 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. He will examine Vogelsong on Tuesday at AT&T Park.

The expected recovery time is six to eight weeks until Vogelsong is pitching again, but he likely would need a rehab assignment before re-joining the Giants.

Vogelsong said if an X-ray shows increased healing, he could have a couple of the pins removed and begin additional mobility exercises.
