San Francisco Giants Angel Pagan May Miss 6-8 Weeks

It was nearly a month ago that San Francisco Giants starting outfielder Angel Pagan hit a walkoff, inside the park home run against the Colorado Rockies.

He hasn’t played an inning since.

Pagan, who said he felt a tweak in his hamstring as he rounded the bases on that home run took a few days off which turned into a few weeks off. All was well though as he finally returned for a rehab stint at Single-A San Jose this week, but traffic kept Pagan from getting to the ballpark on time. Only scheduled to play five innings, Pagan eventually made his way to the field and entered in the fourth inning. A few innings later, Pagan collapsed in pain on the base paths.

Now, according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy, surgery on Pagan’s hamstring might be the lone option:

Surgery “no question” an option for Angel Pagan, Bochy said.

The Giants could attempt to give Pagan more time to rest, but for a guy who’s game is built off of speed, fixing the problem despite a timetable of 6-8 weeks before a return might be their best option.
