Giants outfielder Angel Pagan, on the shelf since May 26 with a strained left hamstring,was told by the team that surgery was an option, but Pagan declined, per CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly. Instead, Pagan received a platelet-rich plasma injection. He says he still feels pain, but expects to go on a rehab assignment in the near future as he works his way back into playing shape.
When Pagan was placed on the DL, he was hitting .262 with a .688 OPS and had stolen only six bases in ten attempts. In his place in center field, the Giants have been using Gregor Blanco, who has caught fire as of late. Since June 4, Blanco is hitting .406.
