07:19 AM ET 06.17 | Angel Pagan's lengthy stay on the DL remains somewhat a mystery, particularly after he has said he felt "close" to returning. Pagan answered some of the questions Sunday by revealing he had a platelet-rich plasma injection a week ago, and his hamstring injury was severe enough that surgery was discussed. It remains an option, manager Bruce Bochy said, although he and Pagan both said the PRP treatment has led to good progress. "I don't think surgery every comes off the table until he's playing again," Bochy said, estimating an operation to repair the muscle where it meets his tibia near his left knee. Pagan does not see himself close to requiring an operation, which would cost him six to eight weeks. "I'm very optimistic I'll be in the lineup soon," he said.

Angel Pagan, the man is a walking oxymoron. The virtual dichotomy.
