The Giants aren’t necessarily committed to Angel Pagan

6 Comments

One of the assumptions about the Giants heading into the winter was that they were going to basically keep the roster together, and that included re-signing Angel Pagan. But you know what they say about those who assume. From Buster Olney:

The San Francisco Giants have been talking with Angel Pagan, but aren’t sure they want to give him as many years as he wants in his next deal…

Probably just posturing — it’s hard to see how the Giants don’t basically reassemble their 2012 roster for 2013 — but it’s not like there are a shortage of veteran outfielders out on the market right now.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
