Pagan made his major-league debut in 2017, posting a respectable 3.22 ERA to go along with his 0.93 WHIP and 56:8 K:BB across 50.1 innings of work. The 26-year-old has shown the makings of a high-leverage reliever, as evidenced by his 2.45 ERA, 305 strikeouts and 51 saves across five minor-league seasons (257.1 innings). He'll factor into Oakland's bullpen next season, and there's a good chance he could see high-leverage opportunities for the A's.
Pagan allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits over an inning in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Astros. He also recorded two strikeouts.
Pagan fell victim to the long ball, allowing a solo shot to George Springer and a two-run blast to Carlos Correa. The 26-year-old righty had seemingly settled down after allowing an earned run apiece in four consecutive outings between late August and early September, as he'd strung together four straight scoreless appearances heading into Sunday. However, his stumble bumped his ERA for the month up to 7.20 and he's now allowed three round trippers over the five innings encompassing his last seven appearances.
Pagan was credited with his fifth hold in Sunday's 10-2 win over the Athletics, allowing an earned run on two hits over an inning-plus. He also recorded a strikeout.
Pagan has been a bit more hittable as of late, as he's now allowed an earned run in three straight games and five out of the last six overall. He continues to see plenty of work, however, as manager Scott Servais appears to value his ability to eat up multiple innings. Pagan also offers solid strikeout upside, as evidenced by his 43:7 K:BB over 41 frames.
Pagan (1-3) gave up an earned run on three hits over 2.2 innings in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Orioles. He struck out three.
Pagan pitched well overall, but the seventh-inning go-ahead two-bagger he surrendered to Chris Davis ultimately proved to be the difference in the contest. The 26-year-old reliever has now allowed four earned runs in three of his last four outings, but he retains a consistent bullpen role, along with a solid 2.77 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.
Pagan notched his fourth hold in Monday's 6-5 win over the Braves, allowing an earned run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning.
Pagan has now been touched up for three earned runs over the 1.1 innings encompassing his last two appearances, a relative rarity in what has been a solid campaign overall. However, he managed to escape with a hold Monday, despite giving up a triple and sacrifice fly in the sixth after inheriting a three-run lead. The 26-year-old right-hander remains a viable fantasy asset in AL-only and deep formats, particularly now that he's started to see some hold opportunities.
