Angel Pagan returned to the Giants lineup on Saturday and batted leadoff after missing Friday’s game with knee soreness. 

Pagan is hitting .271 with 19 RBI, 24 runs scored and four stolen bases this season.

Injury concerns are nothing new for the outfielder, of course. While he’s been healthy up until this point of this season, he missed 157 games between the 2013 and 2014 seasons and missed the entirety of the Giants’ run to the 2014 World Series title after requiring back surgery in late September.

Pagan isn’t in the midst of his best season and isn’t one of the key bats in San Francisco’s lineup at this point.
