Free agent outfielder Angel Pagan told Yamaira Muñiz Pérez of El Vocero that he will not play baseball in 2017.
Pagan received a number of major league offers after performing well for Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, but none lucrative enough to lure him away from his wife and kids back home. The 35-year-old outfielder (36 in July) batted .277/.331/.418 with 12 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 129 games last season for the Giants. "I'm now dedicating myself to my family," Pagan told the Puerto Rico-based publication. "Giving the time my family deserves. At the end of the day, the decision to stay this year was not mine. The decision was for my whole family." Pagan plans to go into real estate and motivational speaking. He hasn't decided about a possible comeback in 2018. Apr 19 - 12:49 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Angel Pagan has turned down two major league contracts.

Rosenthal says that the outfielder is "holding out for a certain desired salary," which, according to previous reports, appears to be around $5 million. It was also reported last month that Pagan had a contract with the Orioles that fell through because of an issue with his physical. The Braves, Blue Jays, Giants, Padres and Tigers have been connected to the outfielder.
Apr 7 - 10:51 AM

Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that the Braves are "still in on" Angel Pagan.

It was Bowden who reported earlier this week that Pagan was set to decide on a team soon and was down to the Braves, Blue Jays, Giants, Padres and Tigers. He didn't say that the Braves are in the driver's seat now, but it certainly wouldn't be a surprise if that's the case. It's unclear whether the Braves are offering a major league contract to Pagan, but if they are they'd want him as a fourth outfielder.
Mar 31 - 11:25 AM

Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that Angel Pagan is expected to decide within the next 48 hours which team he will sign with.

Bowden hears that the Blue Jays, Giants, Padres, Braves and Tigers have all expressed interest in the veteran outfielder. Pagan has been holding out for a major league contract, although it's unclear if he'll receive one. The veteran outfielder batted .286/.324/.371 with a stolen base for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, which Bowden says "certainly helped his value." The 35-year-old batted .277/.331/.418 with 12 homers and 15 stolen bases over 129 games last season with the Giants.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports the Blue Jays and Phillies have shown interest in free agent Angel Pagan.

Pagan had a deal fall through with Baltimore after failing a physical this month, but looked healthy in the World Baseball Classic, hitting .286 in eight games for runner-up Puerto Rico. The 35-year-old has received minor league offers but is reportedly holding out for a major league deal in the range of $5 million. His market should pick up as we near Opening Day.
Mar 23 - 9:54 PM

Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 with a double in Puerto Rico's loss to the United States in Wednesday's World Baseball Classic final.

Pagan played spoiler in this one, as his double against Marcus Stroman to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning was the first hit of the game for Puerto Rico. Alas, the game was all but over at that point -- the United States held a 7-0 lead at the time of Pagan's two-bagger. The veteran outfielder remains a free agent as the season nears. He reportedly had a contract agreement with the Orioles that fell through earlier in March due to a failed physical.
Mar 23 - 12:56 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Braves have made "a couple" attempts to sign free agent Angel Pagan.

Pagan has been linked to a number of teams and actually had a deal fall through with Baltimore after failing a physical. Apparently he's holding out for a big league contract in the range of $5 million. So far the 35-year-old has hit .188 with six strikeouts over 16 at-bats for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic.
Mar 16 - 11:43 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Angel Pagan had a contract with the Orioles fall through due to a failed physical.

The Orioles are notorious for having the toughest physicals in the game, as there have been multiple deals that have fallen through or had to be altered in the past. It's unclear what specific issue came up with Pagan, but he's had plenty of problems with injuries over the years. The veteran outfielder is playing for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, so obviously whatever he's dealing with isn't too debilitating. Heyman also says that Pagan has been looking for a contract worth close to $5 million, but it's hard to imagine him getting that. He might have to settle for a minor league deal. In addition to the Orioles, the Braves, Pirates and Nationals have been connected to him, and Heyman says the Blue Jays could also be a fit.
Mar 10 - 5:12 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Braves and Pirates are among the teams that have made an offer to Angel Pagan.

The Nationals have been connected to Pagan, as well. However, obviously nothing has sufficiently appealed to the veteran outfielder to this point, which probably means no one has offered him a major league contract yet. Pagan is playing for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, so the team that does wind up signing him shouldn't be too worried about him being in game shape.
Mar 10 - 2:49 PM

Angel Pagan notched two hits Wednesday in Puerto Rico's loss to the Giants.

Pagan is still without a team, but that didn’t stop him from beating on his ex-mates Wednesday in Scottsdale. He ripped a single off former Giants teammate Jeff Samardzija in his first at-bat and added to his tally by clubbing another base hit off closer Mark Melancon in the sixth inning. Pagan is hoping to parlay his performance at the WBC into a major league deal. So far he’s off to a good start.
Mar 8 - 7:40 PM

Free agent outfielder Angel Pagan said Wednesday that he has only been offered minor league deals.

This adds more context to the comments from his agent, Greg Genske, on Wednesday. Pagan is understandably looking for a guaranteed job somewhere. The 35-year-old batted .277/.331/.418 with 12 homers and 15 stolen bases over 129 games last season with the Giants. He's hoping to impress in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
Mar 8 - 2:29 PM

Angel Pagan's agent, Greg Genske, told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that his client has received offers from clubs since start of spring training.

It doesn't seem like anything is imminent, as Genske noted that Pagan still "has not yet found the right fit." The veteran outfielder is gearing up to play for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, which could be an opportunity to showcase himself for teams. Pagan, 35, batted .277/.331/.418 with 12 homers and 15 steals across 129 games last season with San Francisco.
Mar 8 - 10:32 AM

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Nationals have expressed interest in free agent Angel Pagan.

But only if it's going to be a non-guaranteed minor league deal, per Rosenthal's sources. Pagan has struggled to attract meaningful interest on the open market as a 35-year-old outfielder with durability issues. He could back up new center fielder Adam Eaton in Washington. Michael Taylor would probably then open the season at Triple-A.

Feb 27 - 8:35 AM

According to Dan Connolly of Baltimore Baseball, free agent outfielder Angel Pagan is "definitely" on the Orioles' radar this offseason.

It wouldn't be a big move, but Pagan could slot in right field and also see some time at the top of the lineup. His injury history is a concern as he moves into his age-35 season, but Pagan is coming off a solid 2016 where he batted .277/.331/.418 with 12 homers and 15 steals across 129 games. He figures to be in line for a short-term deal at this stage of his career.

Angel Pagan (back) remains out Tuesday for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cubs.

Pagan was a late scratch from Game 3 on Monday due to back spasms, and it'll be Gregor Blanco starting in left field again in Game 4. It's not clear whether Pagan is available off the bench for the host Giants. John Lackey is on the mound for the visiting Cubs, who can advance to the NLCS with a win.
