Pagan To Miss Time Again

Tuesday, August 11

The Giants reported on Tuesday that Pagan has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right patella tendinitis.    

It is the third consecutive season that Pagan will be missing a significant amount of time because of injury. He played in 71 games in 2013 as he battled hamstring problems and 96 in 2014 with a bad back. 

This has been a nagging injury for Pagan, though, as CSN Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic reported:

Pagan has been unable to recapture the kind of play that made him such a dynamic piece of the Giants’ roster in the past few years. Usually a speedster who does well to find his way on base, the 34-year-old is batting just .258 with 26 RBI and six stolen bases in 102 games. 

San Francisco has recalled outfielder Juan Perez from Triple-A, who will most likely back up Gregor Blanco while Pagan makes his way back. Blanco has appeared in 86 games in 2015 and is enjoying one of his best seasons in the majors. 

Batting .286 with a .364 on-base percentage, Blanco is a solid replacement for a leadoff man to use while in a bind. 

The Giants can’t afford to let this Pagan injury affect them as they sit 2.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West and 3.5 games back of the Chicago Cubs for the last wild-card spot.
