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' game last night. According to Joe Ritzo, the play-by-play announcer for the San Jose Giants, the injury looks bad.  He says the injury occurred when Pagan tried to run out a ground ball in the ninth inning. Angel Pagan unable to run out a grounder to second in the ninth inning. Limps to first before falling to the ground. — Joe Ritzo (@JoeRitzo) June 21, 2013 Pagan carted off the field back to the Giants clubhouse. — Joe Ritzo (@JoeRitzo) June 21, 2013 If Pagan's injury is serious, and it looks like it will be, the Giants will be left with a hole in their outfield for a very long time.  They were already struggling with Pagan out of the lineup as he tried to recover from the hamstring injury.  This could be devastating. Blogging for Susie Pagan will be brought to San Francisco for evaluation and treatment before the club makes any comment on the injury.  From there, his diagnosis and timetable for how long he will miss can be set.  Regardless, the Giants will not be getting him back anytime soon, and that's a shame. Pagan has proven himself over the last couple of seasons in San Francisco.  He was signed to a four-year deal after last season.  In his two seasons with the Giants (including this year), Pagan is hitting .282/.332/.424.  This year, Pagan's numbers were down a bit as he tried to play through the hamstring strain.
