Giants 5, Diamondbacks 3
Game recap: Gerardo Parra reminded the Giants of his arm -- and his Hakeem Olajuwon finger wag -- while throwing out runners at first base and third base in the Diamondbacks' 5-3 loss Sunday. Parra threw behind Angel Pagan after his short single to right in the first inning and also nailed Michael Morse attempting to go from first to third to end the...
For a seemingly decent leadoff hitter, Angel Pagan gets very little press. Fantasypros.com has him ranked 246th overall, ESPN has him as the 156th best hitter. Both rankings have him placed near players like David Freese, Chris Carter, Adam LaRoche, and Alcides Escobar.
Outside of his injuries, Pagan has been exactly what a leadoff hitter should be: getting on base often and...
If the pattern continues, the San Francisco Giants will win the World Series in 2014, as the team has alternated winning the title and missing the playoffs since 2010.
In reality, such a pattern means very little, but the Giants do return to spring training looking to make 2014 an "on" season in their recent rotation of sweet Octobers and postseasons at home.

Last season was a bit of a lost year for Angel Pagan as he struggled through a trio of leg muscle injuries that forced him to miss a total of 91 games. Pagan is a boring player to analyze as his value comes down to one thing — playing time.
In the two seasons Pagan played more than 150 games, he was a top 50 player. He’s a speedy, contact hitter who will get you a .290 BA, 90...

If only the answer was simple. In a team sport, success and failure can almost never be attributed to a single event or player’s performance. Usually, it is a combination of many things that contribute to winning and losing. In retrospect, let’s look back at the 5 biggest factors responsible for the San Francisco Giants’ fall from...

The post season is too low of a goal in 2014 we must shoot for the top or unload and go home - there's no going through the motions here. World Series or bust! Here's how:
1st - Stay healthy which requires training, practice and of course "Luck"...the lucky bounce, the lucky hamstring (Angel Pagan)...may...
The Giants are focusing on starting pitching at the moment but may be open to at least one position change as they survey the every-day player market, as well.
The Giants are said to be committed to keeping former MVP Buster Posey as the full-time catcher, meaning they are not a realistic option for free-agent atcher Brian McCann despite interest. It appears San Francisco is more...
Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the eighth inning to give San Francisco a win in what might have been Tim Lincecum's final outing with the club, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Thursday night.
Pagan's fifth home run in an injury-shortened season was surrendered by losing pitcher Paco Rodriguez (3-3) and plunked off the top of an ambulance...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the eighth inning to give San Francisco a win in what might have been Tim Lincecum's final outing with the club, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Thursday night. Pagan's fifth home run in an injury-shortened season was surrendered by losing pitcher Paco Rodriguez (3-3) and plunked...
Boy, it hasn’t taken long for San Francisco sports to fall back into some doldrums.
Sure, you can blame both teams’ struggles on injuries. When Angel Pagan went down, not only did the Giants have to rely on two guys who are, at best, average major leaguers for offense, but they also lost an incredible table-setter for guys like Sandoval, Posey and Pence. Marco Scutaro’s...
A guy with a theatrical voice should have grabbed hold of the Citi Field microphone before Tuesday night's game and said "Playing the role of Hunter Pence tonight will be Angel Pagan."
Pence cooled off netting "only" an RBI single in an 8-5 victory against the Mets so former Met Angel Pagan carried the offense for a night.
Pagan walked twice singled tripled...
Angel Pagan homered, tripled and drove in three runs on a perfect night at the plate against his former team, leading Yusmeiro Petit and the San Francisco Giants past the New York Mets 8-5 on Tuesday.
Pagan went 3 for 3 with two walks and scored twice from the leadoff spot for the Giants, who have won four straight and seven of nine. His tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning made...

Javier Lopez (3-2) got the win. Sanchez also...

Angel Pagan showed up and the Giants went into a time warp. They went back to doing things right.
Made the right pitches. Made all the plays including a few fancy ones. Made it feel like old times - thanks to the presence of Pagan who played his first big-league game since May 25 the day he hit an inside-the-park walk-off home run that pulled the Giants into a first-place tie in...
The Giants have activated outfielder Angel Pagan from the 60-day disabled list. He will lead off tonight against the Diamondbacks.
Pagan suffered the injury on May 25 when he hit a walk-off inside-the-park home run in the tenth inning against the Colorado Rockies. He went on the DL with a .688 OPS.
San Francisco Giants center fielder Angel Pagan, who's been sidelined since the end of June after undergoing surgery on his ailing hamstring, begins a minor league rehab assignment with the team's Rookie-level squad today, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com.
When Pagan initially went down with his hamstring injury that required a procedure to repair the damage, the Giants...

Here’s a few nuggets for all you die-hard San Francisco Giants fans. The G-men will be starting a three game series tonight in Washington against the Nationals.
Catcher Guillermo Quiroz was DFA’d, and has accepted his triple-A assignment and will report to the Fresno Grizzlies today.
Manager Bruce Bochy told Jim Bowden...
Can one man make a difference on a team? If you ask the San Francisco Giants (52-64), the answer is yes. They have been missing their starting center fielder, Angel Pagan, since May 25th, when he scored his final run of the season with a walk-off in the park home run against the Colorado Rockies.
Since Pagan’s season ending injury, the Giants are 26-44 and in last place in the...

Yesterday the San Francisco Giants were close to inking pitcher Ted Lilly to a minor league deal. The deal was then called off after the Giants reviewed Lilly’s medical record. I’m not really sure what the thought process was of wanting to bring Lilly in this late in the season. I would rather see our young arms in the farm system...
When Angel Pagan suffered a setback in his return from a hamstring injury, it was thought that he would be lost for the season. After MRI's, it was determined that he would miss 10-12 weeks due to the injury. Now, that time has passed and Pagan is nearing a return, according to Andrew Baggarly of CSN:
Bochy texted with Angel Pagan today. Not sure when a rehab assignment...
Despite spending the majority of the season on the disabled list, the San Francisco Giants are hopeful that Angel Pagan could return this season. Pagan suffered a strained hamstring earlier in the season. He tried to play through it, then he tried taking sporadic days off. Then finally, the Giants had to place him on the DL. By that time, it was too late. Pagan had to...
Giants outfielder Angel Pagan has had a rough year. He gets hurt scoring the winning run on an inside-the-park home run, he rehabs and during one of his rehab games, he re-injures his hamstring and it shows a tear in it. Now, even worse news has come up for Pagan.
According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, it appears that Angel Pagan's season is done.
