SAN FRANCISCO >> Right-hander Ryan Vogelsong has been placed on the 15-day disabled list after breaking his pitching hand and the San Francisco Giants are bracing to be without him for two months.

Vogelsong was in surgery Tuesday morning at Stanford. X-rays on Monday night revealed the injury, which came on a fifth-inning swing during an 8-0 victory against the Washington Nationals.

Vogelsong had a 6-0 lead when he got hurt. He pitched five scoreless innings for his first victory since April 11 and snapped a six-start winless stretch.

Righty reliever Santiago Casilla also went on the disabled list Tuesday because his troublesome right knee still isn’t fully healed despite the use of two different braces.
