When Angel Pagan underwent surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left hamstring in June, he was far from a lock to make it back this season. While it doesn’t matter much anymore with the Giants out of the race, it looks he he’ll get some peace of mind going into 2014.
Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports that Angel Pagan began a minor league rehab assignment with the Giants’ rookie league team yesterday and went 0-for-1 with a walk. He’s scheduled to play five innings today and appears on track to be activated when rosters expand on September 1.
Coming off a huge season with the Giants in 2012, Pagan stayed with San Francisco on a four-year, $40 million contract. The 32-year-old outfielder was batting .262/.314/.374 with three home runs, 24 RBI and six stolen bases in 46 games prior to surgery.
