The San Francisco Giants held center fielder Angel Pagan out
of yesterday’s lineup with a hamstring injury, according to Willie Bans of
Pagan suffered the injury during Saturday’s contest against
the Colorado Rockies, a game he ended with his walk-off inside-the-park home
run. Amazingly, Pagan suffered the injury before his walk-off.
"If you noticed, between second and third, I
stumbled," Pagan said. "But when you play with heart, you don't think
about the pain. If you blow out your leg, you blow out your leg."
Pagan continues to experience some discomfort, but he said
yesterday that he could have played if necessary. San Francisco likely held him
out of the lineup as a precaution, but it will be something to keep an eye on
considering how much of Pagan’s game depends on his speed.
Over 204 plate appearances this season, Pagan has hit
.262/.314/.374 with 10 doubles, one triple and three home runs.
