SAN FRANCISCO -- Angel Pagan won't start tonight with the Giants wanting to give him another day to make sure his right hamstring strain heals completely. Manager Bruce Bochy said Pagan will most likely be available off the bench against the Phillies.
Pagan said he ran on the field at 70-75 percent before the game and "it felt good." In fact, Pagan said he woke up this morning with no hamstring pain at all. "But I guess the best way to make sure you're OK is just give it one more day," he said.
Andres Torres will play center field and bat leadoff against Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee. Bochy said it's nice having the option of not only another right-handed center fielder in Torres, but two potential leadoff options in Torres and Gregor Blanco.
