Pagan, Scutaro complete contracts with Giants

Center fielder Angel Pagan and second baseman Marco Scutaro have

completed their new contracts with the San Francisco Giants.

Both players signed Friday after passing physicals, vice

president of baseball operations Bobby Evans said. Pagan received a

$40 million, four-year contract Monday, then Scutaro reached

agreement a day later on a $20 million, three-year deal with the

World Series champions.

The 31-year-old Pagan, the team’s leadoff hitter, batted .288

with eight home runs, 56 RBIs and a San Francisco-best 15 triples

in his first season with the Giants.

Scutaro, 37, hit .362 with three homers and 44 RBIs in 61

regular-season games with the Giants after he was acquired in a

July 27 trade with Colorado.
