Pagan went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Reds. Pagan isn't known for his power, but he hit an absolute bomb off of Reds' starter Anthony DeSclafani in the fifth inning of Monday's contest. He is putting together a solid month of July, batting .270 with three homers and a pair of stolen bases in 74 at-bats. Health is always a concern with the 35-year-old outfielder, but Pagan is proving to be a useful fantasy asset when he is able to stay on the field.
Pagan went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He's now hitting a solid .317 (19-for-60) over his last 14 games, although his production in the counting stats is fairly modest over that stretch (two homers, four RBI, seven runs and two steals). For the third time in four years Pagan has had trouble staying healthy, but when he is on the field he can still provide some value.
Pagan went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over Arizona. Pagan continues to produce since returning from the disabled list June 14, batting .304 with two homers and three steals over that span. He is batting second in the lineup with Joe Panik (concussion) sidelined, which should keep his run-producing opportunities high. Pagan provides a little bit of everything from a fantasy perspective, making him a valuable fantasy asset while he is locked in and healthy.
Pagan homered as part of a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over Colorado. Pagan was hitless in his first 10 July at-bats before his Independence Day explosion. With four home runs, Pagan has already topped his totals from each of the past two years, but he hasn't reached double-digits since 2010 with the Mets and shouldn't be expected to do so this year. Still, at .289/.336/.423, he has given the Giants solid production out of center field.
Pagan (general soreness) is back in the lineup Monday against the Rockies. Pagan was held out of action Sunday due to what was described as general soreness, but the veteran will return to center field and bat leadoff for the Monday afternoon showdown against Colorado. The San Francisco outfield has been particularly taxed of late with Denard Span (neck) and Gregor Blanco (knee) both nursing respective ailments, so Pagan's presence in the lineup will provide a much-needed offensive boost.
