San Francisco Giants center fielder Angel Pagan, who's been sidelined since the end of June after undergoing surgery on his ailing hamstring, begins a minor league rehab assignment with the team's Rookie-level squad today, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com. When Pagan initially went down with his hamstring injury that required a procedure to repair the damage, the Giants expected him to miss 10 to 12 weeks. As such, they thought there was a good chance he would miss the remainder of the season. However, at this point, if all goes smoothly in the center fielder's rehab, San Francisco said Pagan could rejoin the team by Sept. 1. Considering Pagan is returning from a hamstring injury, he'll have to be careful not to push the envelop too hard as he eases back into playing regularly. He'll start out seeing three innings of action, as he'll get just over two weeks to work his way back to being able to play a full game. Prior to the injury, Pagan was hitting .262/.314/.374 with 10 doubles and three home runs to go with six stolen bases in 10 attempts over 204 plate appearances. The 32-year-old signed a four-year, $45 million contract over the offseason to be the Giants' center fielder through the 2016 campaign. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
