Angel Pagan (back) is hoping to resume baseball activities on Wednesday.

Pagan is headed to the Giants' spring training complex to continue rehabbing. He is not expected back at the start of the second half, but perhaps he can return before the end of the month if all goes well from here on out.
Jul 7 - 8:29 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that he's not expecting Angel Pagan (back) back before the All-Star break.

That's no surprise, of course, as Pagan was given an epidural injection on Thursday after experiencing another setback with his back. He'll likely require a rehab assignment before returning, and it's up in the air as to when that will happen.
Jul 4 - 5:10 PM

Angel Pagan will receive an epidural injection for his ailing lower back on Thursday.

Pagan has been dealing with a bulging disk and probably won't be able to resume his minor league rehab assignment until next week. The center fielder has been out of commission since mid-June and there is no official timetable for his return to the Giants.
Jul 2 - 7:54 PM

Angel Pagan (back) will visit back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles on Wednesday after experiencing a setback.

Pagan was hoping to be activated Tuesday, but he had a setback while doing some running on Monday. The outfielder is dealing with a bulging disk in his lower back, which is pinching his sciatica nerve and causing pain down his leg. Pagan doesn't think he'll need surgery, as he's hoping Dr. Watkins can suggest another form of treatment. Obviously his timetable is totally up in the air.
Jul 1 - 7:31 PM

Angel Pagan (back) won't be activated on Tuesday.

Pagan had been hoping to return from the disabled list for the Giants' series opener against the Cardinals, but he's not quite ready yet. The center fielder has been on the shelf since mid-June with a strained back.
Jul 1 - 5:53 PM

Angel Pagan (back) is hopeful to return to the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Cardinals.

Pagan has been out of commission since mid-June due to a strained back. He worked out at AT&T Park on Saturday evening and reported feeling fine. The center fielder will return to a cool .307/.356/.411 batting line.
Jun 28 - 8:20 PM

Angel Pagan (back) will rest for a few days before resuming workouts.

Pagan was finally placed on the disabled list Wednesday after missing over a week with a strained back. He's eligible to return Monday, but the fact that he's resting for the next few days suggests that he won't be ready then.
Jun 26 - 7:54 PM

Giants placed OF Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 15, with a strained back.

The Giants held out as long as they could -- literally, in terms of a max backdated DL move -- but finally had to disable the outfielder. Pagan will be eligible to return on Monday, though it's not clear at this point if he'll be ready at that time. Gregor Blanco will continue to fill in in center field.
Jun 25 - 2:30 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated after Tuesday's game that Angel Pagan (back) would be placed on the disabled list Wednesday.

Pagan has been out of action for 10 days, and the Giants need to make a move now in order to max out a backdated DL stint. The outfielder tried hitting off a pitching machine Tuesday, but it didn't go well. Pagan will be eligible to return early next week, but it's unclear if he'll be ready at that time.
Jun 25 - 1:26 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated Tuesday that the club will have to decide over the next 24 hours whether Angel Pagan (back) needs to be placed on the disabled list.

Pagan has been out of action for 10 days, and that's the maximum number of days you can backdate a DL move. The outfielder's hitting session off a pitching machine Tuesday didn't go well, so it would be a surprise if he's not placed on the DL. Frankly, it's a surprise a move hasn't been made already.
Jun 24 - 7:53 PM

Angel Pagan (back) threw a bat in frustration at the end of a hitting session off a pitching machine Tuesday.

Pagan is slated to miss an eighth straight start due to a back injury, and the frustration he displayed Tuesday suggests he's simply not getting better. The Giants haven't offered an update on the outfielder yet, but a trip to the disabled list is looking likely at this point.
Jun 24 - 6:46 PM

Angel Pagan (back) is out again Tuesday.

It might be time for a 15-day disabled list stint, which could be made retroactive to June 15. Pagan has missed eight consecutive games because of back discomfort. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and batting leadoff on Tuesday night against the Padres.
Jun 24 - 5:55 PM

Angel Pagan (back) said Monday that he wasn't able to swing 100 percent during batting practice.

Pagan missed his seventh straight game Monday night and isn't sure when he'll be ready to return. "I have no idea," said Pagan. "I'm just going out there, being positive and hopefully soon I'll be ready. I'm all right. I wouldn't say great, but I'm OK." The Giants have to seriously be weighing a stint on the disabled list at this point.
Jun 24 - 8:47 AM

Angel Pagan (back) remained out of the Giants' lineup Monday.

Manager Bruce Bochy indicated Sunday that the club might decide on Monday whether Pagan would need to be placed on the disabled list, but apparently they've decided to give the outfielder more time. Pagan hasn't played since June 14 due to a back injury. Gregor Blanco is getting another start in center field Monday.
