SAN FRANCISCO -- Angel Pagan has a small tear in his left hamstring and will seek a second opinion before deciding on his next move.

Pagan, who has not played since May 25, said he felt a pop while running out a grounder Thursday night in his first rehab game. "It's going back to zero," he said of the rehab process.

Pagan said surgery would be a relatively simple procedure and would put him out at least six weeks.

"I'll make sure I'm 100 percent," he said. "It's a tough injury. It doesn't happen often. It's a very annoying injury because every time you move you feel it."
