Angel Pagan has been scratched from the Giants' lineup Monday due to back spasms.

Obviously his back must really be an issue if it's resulted in him being lifted from an elimination game. It's unclear whether Pagan will be available off the bench. Gregor Blanco has replaced Pagan in left field, while Conor Gillaspie has moved up to the fifth spot in the lineup.
Oct 10 - 8:52 PM

Angel Pagan went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

Pagan hit arguably the biggest home run of the Giants' season, taking Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw deep in the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie. It ended up being the only run the Giants would need in a game they desperately needed to stay one step ahead of the Cardinals in the Wild Card chase. The homer was Pagan's 12th of the season, and the 35-year-old is hitting .273/.329/.414 in 128 games overall.
Oct 1 - 8:00 PM

Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

The triple was Pagan's fifth of the season. In addition, he is slashing .272/.325/.408 with 11 homers, 53 RBI and 68 RBI across 485 at-bats. He has notched multi-hit showings in three of his last six games.
Sep 30 - 1:38 AM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with an RBI, stole a base and scored a run in the Giants' extra-inning win on Saturday.

He drove in a run with a single in the first inning. He scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on a Kelby Tomlinson single. Pagan has a .273 batting average with 11 bombs, 51 RBI and 66 runs scored in 122 games this year. He has pitched in 14 stolen bases as well. He is a decent extra outfielder in fantasy leagues.
Sep 25 - 1:19 AM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Pagan was part of a mini-rally in the bottom of the ninth inning. His RBI single off Daniel Hudson with two outs drew the Giants to within 4-3 and gave the home faithful something to hope for, but next batter Buster Posey would ground out to end the game. For the season, Pagan is hitting .294/.348/.438 with nine homers, 44 RBI and 13 steals across 377 at-bats.
Aug 31 - 1:41 AM

Angel Pagan hit his ninth homer Friday against the Braves.

It's the second-highest homer total of his career; he hit 11 in 2010. On the heels of a horrid 2015, Pagan has been a fine regular for the Giants this year. He's batting .296/.350/.440 in 365 at-bats.
Aug 27 - 1:32 AM

Angel Pagan (groin) is back in the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Pagan tweaked his groin while making a catch in the outfield Saturday against the Mets, but he escaped a serious injury. He'll start in left field and bat second on Tuesday night against righty Kenta Maeda.
Aug 23 - 6:10 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hopeful Angel Pagan (groin) will return to the lineup on Tuesday.

That means Pagan won't be in the lineup on Sunday. Pagan tweaked his groin while hauling in a line drive in the third inning Saturday against the Mets. Gregor Blanco replaced him in left field and will likely get the start there on Sunday.
Aug 20 - 9:34 PM

Angel Pagan left Saturday's game against the Mets with right groin tightness.

He went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting. Gregor Blanco took over for Pagan in left field at the start of the fourth inning. Until the Giants provide an update, we'll consider him day-to-day.
Aug 20 - 6:28 PM

Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

It's a simple day off for the veteran. Gregor Blanco will fill in at left field and bat eighth against Washington ace Stephen Strasburg. Pagan should be back in there on Sunday.
Aug 6 - 5:51 PM

Angel Pagan hit a solo home run that provided all of the Giants' scoring in Friday's loss.

He took Gio Gonzalez deep in the fourth inning. The Giants could muster only four hits all night. Pagan finished the game 1-for-4 and is now hitting .282/.327/.433 for the year. That slash line is pretty good but the counting stats won't impress fantasy owners. He has eight homers, 43 runs, 40 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 77 games.
Aug 5 - 9:47 PM

Angel Pagan singled, doubled and triple in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

Pagan finished 3-for-5, but alas, he couldn't find the power stroke and missed out on the cycle by a home run. The outfielder's three-hit afternoon pushed his triple-slash to .292/.337/.432. In terms of counting stats, he has five homers, 33 RBI, 37 runs scored and nine steals in 250 at-bats.
Jul 24 - 5:02 PM

Angel Pagan hit a two-run homer as part of a 3-for-5 night at the plate on Saturday.

He is now hitting .282/.325/.414 with five home runs, 36 runs, 30 RBI and eight steals after spending a few weeks on the disabled list early in the year. Pagan stole enough bases to be valuable in fantasy leagues in his younger days, but now at 35 years old he is nothing more than an injury fill-in.
Jul 17 - 12:54 AM

Angel Pagan broke a tie with a two-run homer in the third inning of Monday's victory over the Rockies.

It wound up being the last runs scored of the game in the pitcher's duel. Pagan was also credited with a "double," although it was a result of Charlie Blackmon losing a ball in the sun. The veteran outfielder sat out Sunday's game with "general soreness," but it appears that he'll be fine.
