Angel Pagan went 2-for-3 with a sac fly in the Giants' 3-2 win over the Angels on Friday.
Pagan is still hitting a robust .352. Questions about his back plagued him this spring, but he's been one of the Giants' best players thus far, hitting .352 in 91 at-bats. Unfortunately, he hasn't done as much for fantasy owners. Even though he's been batting third, he has just eight runs scored and seven RBI in 23 games. May 2 - 2:48 AM

Angel Pagan went 3-for-4 with three singles as the Giants lost to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Pagan was the only Giant to register multiple hits on Tuesday night. The outfielder has been hampered by back issues but is nevertheless hitting well to start the season, batting .333 in 33 at-bats. Speed and average are his forte, which makes him mixed-league relevant, but he'll always have injury concerns.

Angel Pagan was terrific in Monday's Opening Day win against the Diamondbacks, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI.

Pagan started the scoring with an RBI single in the third inning, then gave the Giants back the lead with an RBI double in the fourth, the start of a four-run outburst. Pagan had been slowed during the spring with back issues and manager Bruce Bochy has said he will monitor the outfielder's workload. If Pagan can stay healthy, he's typically a good bet for a high average and plenty of stolen bases, but that's a big "if".
Apr 7 - 1:43 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Saturday that he'll monitor Angel Pagan's workload in 2015 and will be sure to give the veteran outfielder days off when necessary.

Pagan has been no stranger to the disabled list in recent seasons and has already been battling a back issue this spring. The goal is to avoid situations where Pagan would need to be sitting 2-3 games at a time, so expect him to see occasional days off throughout the season.
Apr 4 - 2:54 PM

Angel Pagan (back) will get some at-bats in a minor league game Tuesday.

It will be his first game action since his back issues cropped up a week ago. Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted just a few days ago to being concerned about Pagan having more problems with his surgically-repaired back, and the outfielder is far from out of the woods. Tuesday will be a nice step, though, provided he doesn't have a setback.
Mar 23 - 7:11 PM

Angel Pagan (back) did some light throwing and hitting off a tee before the Giants' Cactus League game Saturday.

Pagan received two injections in his lower back Friday, and they apparently worked wonders. Surprisingly, Pagan could be back in the Giants' lineup by Tuesday or Wednesday. That's quite a turnaround from a few days ago, when Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted to being concerned about the 33-year-old's health. If things continue to progress, he should still be ready for Opening Day.

Angel Pagan received two injections in his lower back on Friday.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that in a perfect world, Pagan would respond well to treatment and return to the lineup on Monday or Tuesday. Back injuries can tend to linger though, especially on injury-riddled veterans like Pagan who has had numerous issues in the past. At this point, any setback would make him unlikely for Opening Day.
Mar 20 - 7:17 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Thursday to being "a little concerned" about Angel Pagan (back).

The club sounded confident earlier this week that Pagan's setback with his back wasn't related to last September's surgery, but now they don't seem so sure. "I think we need to be (concerned)," Bochy said. "He had back surgery, now he's hit a bump in the road." Pagan was given an injection Thursday and is expected to return to action in three days. Bochy said Thursday that he'd like to get Pagan a lot more at-bats before Opening Day, but he's "not sure he'll be able to." The veteran outfielder is a big health risk heading into 2015 even if he manages to avoid the disabled list to start the season.
Mar 19 - 7:18 PM

Angel Pagan got an injection for his back discomfort and will be out at least three more days.

Pagan has already missed three games, so this latest back injury will cost him at least a full week of Cactus League action. The expectation is that he'll be ready for the regular season, but the ongoing back problems are a big concern for a 33-year-old center fielder who needed surgery for a bulging disk last September.
Mar 19 - 12:46 PM

Angel Pagan (back) is out of the Giants' Cactus League lineup again on Thursday afternoon.

Pagan has now missed three straight games due to a stiff back. The veteran outfielder underwent surgery last September to repair a bulging disk in his back, but the Giants don't think this latest issue is related. Pagan should be ready for the season opener.
Mar 19 - 11:13 AM

The Giants hope Angel Pagan (back) will be ready to return to the lineup on Thursday.

Pagan missed his second straight game Tuesday with a stiff back and the Giants are idle on Wednesday. He underwent surgery last September to repair a bulging disk in his back, but the club insists that this setback isn’t serious. "Hopefully I'll have him in there Thursday," manager Bruce Bochy said.
Mar 17 - 10:56 PM

Angel Pagan is out of the Giants' lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

Pagan didn't play Monday with a minor back issue and he's presumably getting another day to rest. Of course, he had surgery last September to repair a bulging disk and nerve damage, so the Giants aren't going to push it.
Mar 17 - 11:40 AM

Angel Pagan (neck) will take live batting practice on Saturday.

Pagan had been held out of workouts the previous two days and was scheduled to have Saturday off as well, but felt significant improvement in his neck. While he's on track to be ready for Opening Day, he remains a significant injury risk. He has averaged just 84 games played over the past two seasons.
Feb 28 - 11:57 AM

Angel Pagan was held out of workouts for a second straight day Friday due to a sore neck.

It doesn't appear to be a major concern at this point, but with Pagan's history of injuries there's always some worry when anything pops up. Pagan is coming back from back surgery but entered camp with no restrictions.
Feb 27 - 12:52 PM

Angel Pagan said Tuesday that he has no restrictions following back surgery.

Pagan dealt with a back injury for most of last season before undergoing surgery in September to repair a bulging disc and also narrow the nerve canal, but he's now back to 100 percent. "I'm good, I'm perfect," said Pagan. "I feel like never before." The 33-year-old projects to be the Giants' regular center fielder in 2015, but it's possible he'll be moved down in the order when Nori Aoki is in the lineup.
