The Giants have picked left hander Mike Kickham to start Tuesday night in Oakland -- taking the spot of injured right hander Ryan Vogelsong.

Kickham, 24, has deserved a chance to show what he can do at the next level, posting a 1.7-2 era in his last five starts for the Grizzlies.

Kickham spent sprint training with the Giants, so he's no stranger to his new teammates or manager Bruce Bochy.
