San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan will need more time to recover from right knee tendinitis and will not return to the Giants when he is eligible to come off the DL on Tuesday. Pagan, who was placed on the DL August 11th, is expected to play rehab games for Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday and Wednesday before he is reevaluated. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Angel Pagan hasn't been a fantasy threat all year and this injury certainly doesn't help his case. The Giants acquired veteran Marlon Byrd last week and Gregor Blanco has done well filling in for Pagan, so don't expect to see him rushed back to the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has been absolutely brutal this season, posting a .598 OPS with six stolen bases and no home runs. He isn't mixed-league relevant.

Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 from the plate with one single and one walk. He was unable to knock in any runs, but he did make it around the bases both times to score.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has put together a solid July with a .289 batting average and a .313 OBP. He has only failed to record a hit in five games this month (he has missed two games), but he has only managed to collect three extra base hits. He is not a world beater, but he is fairly consistent player who should continue to get many opportunities at the plate in the leadoff spot.

Angel Pagan was able to push his new hit streak to three games with a 1-for-5 effort from the plate. He hit one single and also reached base after a fielder's choice, allowing him to eventually score two runs.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan was red hot before the All-Star break, and it looks like he has cooled off slightly, but he is consistently reaching base once or twice a game. At the leadoff spot he is not a RBI candidate, but his teammates are hitting well behind him so expect Pagan to continue to score.

Angel Pagan had a monster night in his team's blowout win over the Phillies. Pagan finished at 3-for-6 from the plate with two singles and one double. He managed to drive in two runs and also scored all three times that he made it on base.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has actually been slumping for quite some time now, and these two RBI mark his first since June 25th. His OBP has sunk all the way down to the .300 mark and he has not taken a walk yet in July. Luckily for Pagan, the Phillies are the worst team in baseball and he and his teammates may actually be worth a play for the rest of the series if they can emulate their performance from this game.

Angel Pagan was one of the few bright spots for the Giants in a low scoring loss. Pagan came through with a 2-for-4 effort at the plate (two singles), but he was unable to drive in any runs or score any himself.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan's batting average dropped significantly in June, but he has been stable for at around .270 for the last week and a half. The good news is that he is actually off to a pretty great start so far in July, currently sporting a .400 OBP after putting up a dismal .248 last month.

Angel Pagan had a productive return to the lineup as he went 1-for-4 from the plate as the leadoff man. He hit one single, took one walk, and also scored one run.

Fantasy Impact: Angel Pagan will most likely have to continue to hit leadoff until Nori Aoki returns from his fractured fibula. The move should actually help increase Pagan's value since he may get a few more at-bats and he was out of place hitting in the three-hole anyways.

Angel Pagan is back in the Giants' lineup Saturday after leaving early Friday night with injury

Fantasy Impact: Pagan will lead off for the Giants versus Chris Rusin at AT&T Park. Pagan has an .821 OPS against LHP this season, so this presents a plus matchup for him.


Category: , Injury Updates

Angel Pagan was slotted into the leadoff role due to Nori Aoki's fibula fracture, and he rewarded the Giants with a 2-for-5 night. He hit one single, one double, drove in one run, and also scored a run himself.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has had a really rough month of June, only batting .179 with a .241 OBP, but the move to the leadoff role may actually help his fantasy value. Since he is not a slugger, he never drove in many runs in his regular three-hole spot anyway (only 19 RBI on the year), but in the leadoff spot he should not have to worry about that, instead just hitting for contact and trying take walks, and perhaps even seeing a slight increase in plate appearances.

Angel Pagan went 1-for-3 with one single that was good for one RBI. He was unable to make it around the bases and score, and he also did not take any walks.

Fantasy Impact: Angel Pagan's value had been in a serious decline, entering Monday's game with no hits in his last 17 at-bats. He has since gone 3-for-7 with three singles and one RBI, so perhaps he has rebounded. He is still a talented player who bats third in the lineup, so expect plenty of RBI opportunities and some better hitting.

Angel Pagan was walked twice and struck out once in Wednesday's offensive onslaught of the New York Mets. Despite being 33 years old, Pagan is still producing at a high level for the Giants, batting .281 on the season and producing 14 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has continuously been reliable for the Giants, and while not being a star in their most previous win, Pagan's effort was crucial to the result. However, Pagan has scored one run, but has yet to register a hit in two games against the Mets in this series. Pagan remains a desperate start in the outfield, as there are more productive outfielders available even off the waiver wire.

Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 from the plate with a double and a walk. He was able to bat in one RBI and also make it around the bases and score one run himself.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is currently on a five game hit streak, with exactly one hit in each game. He has one RBI in each of his last two games, but those were his first RBI since the 22nd of May, despite hitting third in the lineup. He is very productive in league play and still a solid choice when stacking Giants' players against weak pitchers in daily games.

Angel Pagan in hitting drought

By Daniel Rogers

Over his last 20 AB, Angel Pagan has only accumulated 3 hits across five contests. However, Pagan is still batting .297 up to this point, with 11 RBI and 0 HR.

Fantasy Impact: To put it into perspective, Pagan finished the 2014 season with only 3 home runs and 27 RBI. Pagan has never been a slugger, but he is a valued asset to this Giants team. However, value is not translated to fantasy leagues, but stat sheets are, and Pagan is not putting up fantasy-starter numbers in 2015.

Angel Pagan was finally able to brake his three game hitless streak with a 2-for-4 effort against the Brewers. He hit one single and one double, and was also able to come around and score a run himself.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan's three game steak without a hit was his first miniature slump of the year, in fact he had been playing so well that his average was still sitting at .306 heading into this contest. He has been a hit machine all year and is still a solid option across all formats.

Angle Pagan had another productive night as he went 2-for-4 with two singles and no walks. He was unable to knock in any runs or come around and score, but he did steal one base, his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan continues to plug away with his high .329 batting average, providing solid value for fantasy owners. He does not take many walks, so his OBP is still sitting at .351, but he still has a decently high floor for those interested in daily games.

Angel Pagan comes through when needed. Prior to his at-bat in the eighth inning Pagan was 0-2 with one walk. That said, the Giants were down 3-2, with one out, and Joe Panik took a 0-2, 4-seem fastball down the left field line for a triple. Then Pagan delivered the tying run with a single to right field that glanced off of Joey Votto's glove.

Fantasy Impact: Angel Pagan when healthy is always going to be a very solid hitter. He is hitting .336 on the season now, with 10 runs and three stolen bases. Hunter Pence will be coming up soon, so this may help Pagan move up in the order, where he will be more comfortable. He clearly is not a four-hole hitter as he doesn't deliver much power.

Angel Pagan had a very productive night at 3-for-5 from the plate with one run scored himself. All of his hits were singles and he also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: It is hard to complain about a player who is hitting .333 with a total of 42 hits since that provides plenty of value in all formats, but it would be nice to see him pick up his slugging. While Pagan has never been a power hitter, only having eight extra base hits through this point in the season is certainly odd for a three-hole hitter, and it would only increase his value in daily games.

Angel Pagan had a fairly productive 2-for-5 night at the plate. Both of his hits were singles and he did not take any walks, but he also did not strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: This was a really nice effort coming off of an 0-for-5 with one strikeout game. Expect Pagan to continue to hit for contact but do not expect any slugging, he has only eight extra base hits on the year.


Category: , Game Recaps

Pagan managed to go 2-for-4 with two singles and a strikeout. One of his hits knocked in a run and he also stole a base.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is providing great value to owners in both league play and in daily games. He is not a typical three-hole hitter, providing little power and only eight RBI so far, but he does consistently get on base with his .350 batting average.


Category: , Game Recaps

Pagan went 2-4 at the plate with a single, a double, one strikeout, and no walks. He was unable to record any RBI, but he was able to come around and score a run.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is off to great start by hitting .357, but with only six RBI and no home runs, he is not exactly the typical three-hole hitter. He is currently riding a five game hit streak with a total of eleven hits, so make sure to plug him into any lineups.


Category: , Game Recaps

Angel Pagan managed a 1-4 night at the plate that included one RBI single, one strikeout, and no walks.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is currently riding a four game hitting streak that includes a total of nine hits, however he has only managed two RBI over the same period. At .350 he is certainly not struggling to get on base, but he will not meet his true potential as a three hole hitter until his teammates in front of him get on base.


Category: , Game Recaps

Angel Pagan had another great night at the plate, going 3-4 with one RBI. Unfortunately, none of his hits were for extra bases and he was not able score any runs for himself, but he was able to steal one base.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan has really been locked in as this was his second three hit game in a row, however tonight's RBI was the only run produced by the six hits. Regardless, if he continues to hit at or anywhere near his current .378 average from the three hole, then RBIs will surely begin to come.


Category: , Game Recaps

Angel Pagan had another productive night at the plate for the Giants as he went 1-4 with a single and a walk, while also scoring two runs for himself. His lone hit was a double but he also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is now batting at a .500 clip, and while it is only two games into the season, owners should be very optimistic. Manager Bruce Bochy has Pagan batting third, so expect plenty of RBI opportunities if Nori Aoki and Joe Panik can get on base.

Angel Pagan, outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, lit up the Arizona desert on Opening Day. The 33-year-old went 3-for-4 with 2 RBIs. Pagan totaled 27 RBIs in his 2014 campaign, and could be poised to raise that tally this season.

Fantasy Impact: Pagan is more-than-likely available to add in your league. Think of Pagan as a short-term addition to your team if you need some hits, but don't risk letting go of a top-tier talent to grab him. Pagan should fare well as the series continues with the Diamondbacks, as De La Rosa takes the mound with a career ERA of 4.43.

Angel Pagan received an injection for his back this past Thursday, and is expected to need at least two or three more days of rest before returning to action. (Source: MLB)

Fantasy Impact: Pagan underwent season-ending back surgery in September of 2014 but was expected to be fully healthy come Spring. Concern is high as Pagan has appeared in only seven of the team's 18 games thus far. A candidate for double digit home runs and steals who hits for average (he hit 8 home runs and stole 29 bases with a .288 batting average in 154 games in 2012), it all comes down to whether Pagan can stay on the field. Consider him a high-risk pick with some upside, but only if you can grab him late in drafts and for little cost.
