SAN FRANCISCO (AP) 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.
