San Francisco Giants and Angel Pagan Agree on 1 Year Deal


PaganAccording to ESPN, the San Francisco Giants and outfielder Angel Pagan agreed to a $4.85 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

Pagan was acquired during last month's winter meetings from the New York Mets for outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez.

The 30-year-old Pagan, who replaced mentor Carlos Beltran in center field while with New York, is a switch-hitter with speed. He batted .262 with seven home runs and 56 RBIs last season, down from .290 with 11 homers and 69 RBIs in 2010. Beltran moved to right field for the Mets in spring training before he was traded to the Giants in late July. After an injury-plagued stint in the Bay Area that saw the 2010 World Series champions miss the playoffs, Beltran departed to the St. Louis Cardinals on a two-year contract.

Pagan's deal includes $150,000 in performance bonuses: $50,000 each for 550, 600 and 650 plate appearances.
