Angel Pagan took a lot of pride in being the San Francisco Giants’ starting center fielder and leadoff hitter, but he will have to swallow some of that pride in 2016 though because he is about to take on a very different role this season than he has in the past for the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants continued their active offseason by agreeing to terms with outfielder Denard Span on Thursday to a three-year deal worth $31 million.
After signing marquee starting pitcher free agents Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto to significant deals this offseason, the Giants only had one glaring hole left to fill before the start of the 2016 season. They had one spot in the outfield to fill, since they’re pretty set at every other position. Span fills that need and more.
