Pagan (back) is not in the lineup Tuesday for Game 4 of the Giants' NLDS matchup with the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan was a late scratch Monday due to back spasms, and it appears he is still dealing with soreness, as Gregor Blanco will get the start in left field Tuesday. Pagan may be available off the bench, but he did not play at all Monday despite the game going 13 innings.

Pagan went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, two runs and a walk in Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan broke through against Clayton Kershaw in the fifth with a solo shot that traveled 374 feet and broke a scoreless tie. The veteran outfielder has multi-hit outings in four of his last seven games despite finishing September with a forgettable .190/.252/.295 line. The homer was also his first since Sep. 13 versus the Padres.

Pagan is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan hasn't had a day off since Sept. 4, and given his .172 batting average since that day, manager Bruce Bochy decided it was a good time to give him another night off. Mac Williamson will take over in left field for the evening.

Pagan went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan came into Friday's game hitless in 13-consecutive at bats. Friday's homer could be a sign he is snapping out of his little funk at the plate. The home run marks his 10th of the season and he has 22 games to try and break his career-high of 11. As a whole, Pagan has been a great value when healthy as a fourth or fifth outfielder in most formats considering his cheap (in some cases, free) cost to own.

Pagan is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan will get his first day off since Aug. 21, giving way to Jarret Parker in left field. With a three-game set in the high-altitude Coors Field on tap, manager Bruce Bochy will elect to give a few of his regulars a breather Sunday afternoon.

Pagan went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's loss to Arizona. Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reported after the game that Pagan is dealing with hamstring tightness.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bruce Bochy said that Pagan was dealing with hamstring tightness Tuesday night, but it wasn't serious enough to take him out of the game. The news is a bit concerning considering the veteran outfielder's injury history, especially when you take in to account that he already missed time with a hamstring injury this season. The hamstring tightness could affect his running, which is a part of his fantasy game. Pagan has been a valuable asset when healthy, so owners have to continue playing him until the injury forces him out of the lineup.

Pagan went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 7-0 win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan saw his 19-game hitting streak come to an end Wednesday, but it doesn't seem like he is ready to cool off quite yet. His two-run home run off of Joel De La Cruz was a no-doubter that went over Levi's Landing in right field. It bears repeating that Pagan has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball this month, collecting 29 hits in 85 August at-bats. More importantly, he is also hitting the ball with authority, posting a .929 OPS in August to go along with the usual high batting average. Owners who picked him when his bat started to show signs of life back in July should continue enjoy the ride. For those who still see Pagan's name on the waiver wire: what are you waiting for?

Pagan (groin) returned to the lineup Tuesday and went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the 9-5 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

While Pagan's groin injury wasn't considered serious, it was still concerning given his shaky injury history. It turned out to be a non-issue as he returned to the lineup, extending his 19-game hitting streak in the process. The fragile Pagan could go down again any minute, but as he proved prior to missing Sunday's game, when he is on the field he can be a valuable fantasy asset at the end of your outfield corps.

Pagan (groin) will man left field and bat second Tuesday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Pagan will return to his normal spots after missing just one game with a groin strain. Pagan has hit safely in 18 straight games dating back to July 31 and is now just under the .300 mark for the season. He should continue to help drive the offense while batting in the two-hole behind Denard Span.
