SAN FRANCISCO -- Centre 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.
