After the Giants 6-2 loss, Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News provided an update: 

Andrew Baggarly of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area spoke with Pagan about the injury: 

The injury comes at a terrible time for San Francisco, as the team is feverishly chasing the Los Angeles Dodgers in a race for the NL West. We’re now in the midst of September, and with the postseason creeping ever so closer, San Francisco’s three-game deficit is quickly becoming increasingly difficult to overcome.

Losing Pagan’s .302 batting average doesn’t help the team’s cause. The outfielder has accumulated 115 hits, 21 doubles, two triples, three home runs and 27 RBI while stealing 15 bases in 95 games this season.

Perez will take over in Pagan’s absence. He’s batting .189 on 74 at-bats this season, totaling 14 hits, seven doubles, one home run and three RBI. He has some big shoes to fill as the Giants continue to make a push for the playoffs.
