SAN FRANCISCO -- Ryan Vogelsong is staying put with the San Francisco Giants, reaching agreement on a one-year contract Friday.

Assistant general manager Bobby Evans says the deal is pending a physical, expected to happen later next week.

The Giants declined to exercise Vogelsong's $6.5 million option for 2014 on Nov. 4, but the parties agreed to keep open the possibility of potential negotiations down the road.

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.

Vogelsong won 13 and 14 games the previous two seasons.
