Giants' Pagan to have hamstring surgery

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- San Francisco Giants center fielder Angel Pagan is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a tendon in his left hamstring.

The announcement was made by manager Bruce Bochy on Monday before the defending World Series champions opened a three-game series with the last-place Dodgers. The procedure will be performed by Dodgers team physician Neal ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, and Pagan is expected be out at least another 12 weeks.

Pagan, who turns 32 on July 2, signed a four-year, $40 million contract in December after helping the Giants win their second World Series title in three years. He is batting .262 with three home runs and 24 RBIs.

He hasn't played since he hit an inside-the-park homer to give San Francisco a 6-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on May 25.
