Found June 22, 2013 on Two Guys, a Glove and a Coke Bottle:
Giants center fielder Angel Pagan had an MRI on his injured hamstring Friday that revealed a tear in his hamstring, according to Alex Pavlovic of the Merc. He is considering surgery that would keep him out six weeks, but is seeking a second opinion before going under the knife. The tear occurred while Pagan was sprinting down the first base line in a rehab start in San Jose, with the speedster pulling up with a limp before crumpling into a heap. He was carted off the field and returned to the Bay to get the MRI. Pagan has been out since his improbable inside-the-park walk-off home run against the Rockies on May 25th, his third home run of the season. Before the injuy Pagan was the Giants’ everyday leadoff hitter, batting .262/.314/.374. With Andres Torres, Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez cobbling together a pretty good Pagan impression, I think Pagan should just have the surgery and be ready for a stretch run that will certainly have the Giants chasing their third NL West title in thre...

Giants' Angel Pagan carted off field during rehab assignment

After weeks of trying to let his hamstring heal on its own, Angel Pagan was finally placed on the DL.  Before he could return from the DL, though, Pagan was sent to San Jose for a minor league rehab assignment.  It was there, last night, that things may have gotten much worse for the veteran outfielder.  He was carted off the field in the ninth inning of the San Jose Giants&...

SF Giants Rumors: Angel Pagan Injured Again, Barry Zito’s Father Passes Away

Photo by Marko Realmonte (GiantsInTheYard.com) Last night’s loss to the Marlins was bad news, but it wasn’t as bad as hearing that San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan had to be carted off the field in Stockton. I’m not sure the extent of his injury, but I don’t see him coming back anytime soon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Barry Zito and his family. Zito’s...

Surgery still an option for Pagan

SF Giants lineup: Crawford out again, in fact all Brandons on bench

Before the 2012 season I invented a segment for our blog/podcast called “Brandon Watch”, based on the premise that the Giants could be successful if their young (and cheap) position players performed at the level of major-league caliber starters. What followed was a great defensive season from Brandon Crawford and a really nice all-around performance by Brandon Belt. There will...

Return of the Panda, Slumping Giants Get Their Slugger Back Monday

Pablo Sandoval is a big piece of the Giants lineup, literally and figuratively, and the slumping team will welcome him back with open arms Monday night in Los Angeles. The Giants have struggled to score runs all year (11th in the NL) and with their all star third baseman on the DL with a strained left foot, the offense has become anemic, as the team just lost three out of four games...

Chris Dominguez lumbering with the Fresno Grizzlies

If Chris Dominguez ever makes the roster of the San Francisco Giants, local interest in Major League Baseball will likely improve significantly. When Mingo got drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2008, he was among the most popular UofL baseball players ever. Good natured and affable, the 6-foot-5 right-hander was a powerful hitter, a crowd magnet at Jim Patterson Stadium. In...

On an emotional day, Barry Zito was spectacular, and the Giants came from behind once again to defeat the Miami Marlins 2-1 in eleven innings. The Marlins got on the board first. Ed Lucas crushed his first home run of the season with one out in the top of the first to give Miami their early lead, but that’s all that they would get off of Zito.
