Originally written July 05, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Giants outfielder Angel Pagan has had a rough year. He gets hurt scoring the winning run on an inside-the-park home run, he rehabs and during one of his rehab games, he re-injures his hamstring and it shows a tear in it. Now, even worse news has come up for Pagan. According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, it appears that Angel Pagan's season is done. Just turned on radio and heard Sabean say Pagan pretty much done for the year. #sfgiants — John Shea (@JohnSheaHey) July 6, 2013 This is news that we expected, but it is still tough to see the Giants lose one of their better offensive players. While his stats this year weren't all that impressive, he still provided a spark to that lineup that no outfielder has brought to them. They have tried with Juan Perez, Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres and that hasn't exactly worked out too well for them. Is it time to give one of their better outfield prospects in Gary Brown a shot? While he may not be 100 percent ready, it's worth a shot. He has been dominating in Triple-A Fresno and can play good defense. It's an idea. Pagan's absence has really hurt the Giants. They have lacked a certain swagger since he left and just haven't found anyone to provide it. On the year, Pagan was hitting .262 with three home runs and 24 RBI's. While the Giants may need to find a replacement for Pagan, they shouldn't panic and overpay for an outfielder. A smart move, as I have said before, would be to acquire Alex Rios from the White Sox and have an outfield of Blanco-Rios-Pence. If Pence leaves in free agency, at least they have a back up plan for Pagan.
