Not that it's much of a surprise, but Angel Pagan is headed back to San Francisco. The two sides have reached an agreement for a four-year deal worth $40 million, according to CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman.

Pagan, 31, hit .288/.338/.440 in his first season with the Giants, helping lead the team to the World Series title. Despite less-than-stellar numbers in the postseason, his defense was critical in the team's playoff run.

Last December, the Mets traded Pagan to San Francisco for Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez.

There was some smoke leading up to the winter meetings that the Giants were talking to Shane Victorino and Michael Bourn. In hindsight, it seems that was a well-placed negotiating strategy by the Giants, who were hoping to nail down a final figure with Pagan.
