SAN FRANCSICO (AP) – A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the San Francisco Giants and outfielder Angel Pagan have agreed to a $4.85 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the club hadn’t formally announced the deal. Pagan was acquired during last month’s winter meetings from the New York Mets for outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez.

The 30-year-old Pagan, who replaces Carlos Beltran in center, is a switch-hitter with speed. He batted .262 with seven homers and 56 RBIs last season, down from .290 with 11 homers and 69 RBIs in 2010.

Pagan’s deal includes $150,000 in performance bonuses: $50,000 each for 550, 600 and 650 plate appearances.
