Angel Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup due to soreness in both knees.
Pagan had an issue with his left knee back in June and not only is it sore again but apparently his right one is, as well. "It's really evident," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. The skipper indicated that it will likely be a multi-day absence for Pagan. Gregor Blanco is in center field Monday and Nori Aoki is in the leadoff spot. Aug 3 - 5:42 PM

Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Pagan doubled off of locked-in Rangers starter Martin Perez with one out in the ninth inning. He would score on a Buster Posey RBI single, but the Giants were unable to complete a winning rally, as they fell by a score of 2-1. Pagan is hitting a light .264/.297/.317 with no home runs, 25 RBI, 37 runs scored and six steals this season.

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's a simple day off. Gregor Blanco is in center field while Pagan rests.
Jul 29 - 1:28 PM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-6 with two RBI and three runs scored Friday in the rout of the Phillies.

It's Pagan's first multi-RBI game since he drove in two runs against the Diamondbacks on Opening Night. His double was just his second extra-base hit in a month. Still, Pagan has a good excuse for the lack of power, given that he's played through back troubles that might have knocked him out of the lineup had the rest of San Francisco's outfield been healthy.

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It appears to be a routine day off. Gregor Blanco is in center field and Justin Maxwell is in left while Pagan rests.
Jul 8 - 1:17 PM

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Nationals.

The Giants continue to give the outfielder regular rest in order to keep his knees fresh. Gregor Blanco will start in center field and bat leadoff for the Giants against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals on Saturday, while Ryan Lollis draws his first major league start in left field.
Jul 4 - 9:26 AM

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday.

It's only a day off, though Pagan has been battling some swelling in his left knee. The 34-year-old outfielder is hitting just .266/.303/.322 in 74 games this season.
Jul 2 - 10:48 AM

Angel Pagan, still dealing with swelling in his left knee, went 0-for-4 against the Rockies on Sunday.

Pagan has started the last two games even after the Giants called him doubtful for the weekend on Friday. He hasn't done much of anything for fantasy leaguers this year, but the Giants still need him in the lineup with their other two starting outfielders on the DL.

Angel Pagan isn't likely to play Saturday after sitting Friday with swelling in his left knee.

The current hope is that he just misses a couple of days. The Giants can hardly afford to put their third starting outfielder on the disabled list, but it might happen if the knee fails to respond by Sunder. Gregor Blanco is playing center in Pagan's place.
Jun 27 - 2:02 AM

Angel Pagan is set to undergo X-rays and an MRI exam on his left knee.

Pagan bruised his knee when he crashed into the wall during Thursday's game and wasn't feeling good enough to play on Friday so the Giants want to rule out any serious injury. Should he be forced to the disabled list, Justin Maxwell would continue to get extended run in the Giants outfield.
Jun 26 - 8:49 PM

Angel Pagan was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

No word yet on the reason for the late switch, but the oft-injured outfielder has dealt with his fair share of ailments this season. Gregor Blanco will hit leadoff for the Giants on Friday with Justin Maxwell entering the lineup and hitting eighth.
Jun 26 - 7:03 PM

Angel Pagan finished 2-for-5 with a run scored in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Mariners.

The veteran outfielder is 5-for-17 in his last four games after previously being mired in an 0-for-17 slump. Even so, he isn't quite in the clear, as Pagan doesn't have an extra base hit in his last nine contests. Overall, he's hitting .272/.305/.332 with zero homers, 16 RBI and 20 runs.
Jun 19 - 1:05 AM

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

It looks like he's just getting a blow. Justin Maxwell is covering center field in Pagan's absence.
Jun 14 - 1:43 PM

Angel Pagan is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Brewers.

Gregor Blanco will make the start in center field. Pagan has dealt with some more back issues recently, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the outfielder is just resting Tuesday.
May 26 - 3:52 PM

Angel Pagan (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

Pagan missed Sunday's contest after being forced early from Saturday's game due to back spasms. He obviously has a history of back issues, but it appears this case is minor. He's in center field and batting third.
