Angel Pagan will undergo season-ending back surgery on Thursday.
The operation will repair a bulging disc and also narrow the nerve canal in Pagan's lower back. He will need three months of rehab. Pagan first began experiencing back trouble in mid-June and missed two months of action before returning last month. He had a setback earlier in September and the Giants have decided it's best for him to go ahead and have the procedure. Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez will handle center field while Pagan is out. The 33-year-old hit .300/.342/.389 with three homers and 16 steals over 96 games this season. Sep 23 - 8:13 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Angel Pagan (back) is "questionable" to play in the upcoming series versus the Dodgers.

Pagan returned to action Friday but worse, so he's flown to San Diego to have his ailing back examined by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki. The Giants are fighting for a playoff spot and will obviously do everything they can to get him back in the lineup, but it's possible we won't see much of him in the final week.

Angel Pagan isn't expected to play again this weekend due to back soreness.

Angel Pagan has returned to the Giants starting lineup on Friday.
