San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan suffered a hamstring injury on May 23 that required surgery. He was placed on the disabled list on May 24. However, he is ready to return.

Continue for updates.


Pagan Active vs. Brewers

Tuesday, June 14

Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area noted Pagan has been activated from the disabled list and will play in Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.


Pagan's Hamstring Tendon Removed

Friday, June 3 

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reported Pagan's left hamstring tendon was "removed completely," and he now has two tendons rather than three. 


Pagan's Absence Was Significant Blow to Giants' Depth

Pagan has never been much of a power threat, recording only one season in his career with double-digit home run totals, but he is solid on the basepaths (he stole 29-plus bases in three seasons in a row from 2010 to 2012) and sports a .280 career batting average and .330 career on-base percentage.

While Brandon Belt and Gregor Blanco give the Giants some reliable options if Pagan is out in the future, they are also needed at other positions (Belt is a first baseman, and Blanco can play everywhere in the outfield). San Francisco sits in first place in the National League West and could use a healthy Pagan as it chases a postseason spot.
