Pagan returned to the lineup, batting leadoff and going 3-for-6 with a double, three runs, and a pair of RBI in the win over the Phillies.

Pagan received a day off Wednesday after a 1-for-12 cold spell, and that coupled with the extra rest of an off day on Thursday rejuvenated the veteran's bat. His season-to-date has been a disappointment, but Friday's big day at the plate could thaw Pagan's bat. He still has deep league value, but those in mixed leagues should monitor him in the coming days, as he has a tendency to be a streaky hitter.

Pagan (knee) returned to the lineup Sunday, batting leadoff and going 1-for-4 with his fifth stolen base of the season.

Pagan missed Saturday's contest with a sore knee, but made his return to the lineup after missing just one game. The fact that he swiped a bag in his first game back is a good sign that Pagan is back at 100-percent. The Giants are going to need Pagan to produce atop the lineup with both Nori Aoki (leg) and Hunter Pence (arm) sidelined.

Pagan is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals, according to Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area.

Pagan has dealt with a sore knee of late, and is just 1-for-8 in his career against Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg, so he will be held out Saturday. Gregor Blanco will replace Pagan both in center field and atop the Giants' batting order.

Updating a previous report, Pagan is out of the lineup Thursday as a result of knee inflammation, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.

Pagan apparently could have talked his way into the lineup according to manager Bruce Bochy, but the San Francisco skipper decided it would be best to give the veteran a day off to be safe. He'll likely be reevaluated prior to Friday's series opener against the Nationals.

Pagan is out of the lineup Thursday against the Marlins.

Pagan will receive a regular maintenance day for an early-afternoon game following a night contest. Gregor Blanco will get the nod in center field and bat leadoff in the order, with Brandon Belt in left and Justin Maxwell in center.

Pagan (knee) was not scratched and remained in the Giants' starting lineup.

There was question whether or not he would be scratched prior to the contest, but the knee must not have caused him enough pain to keep him out. However, the latest testing showed swelling in the knee, so it's an issue that could still keep him day-to-day moving forward.

Pagan (knee) was initially listed in Saturday's lineup, but is wearing a brace on his right knee and will have his left knee wrapped, and manager Bruce Bochy indicated that he could still be scratched, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Pagan appeared set to retake his spot in center field, but given the swelling was still prevalent following the most recent tests, it appears his spot remains tentative at this point. The veteran outfielder has a history of knee issues, so even if he does return Saturday, it wouldn't be surprising if he remains a day-to-day lineup call.

Pagan (knee) will rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

A couple of days ago, it appeared that Pagan could be headed to the disabled list. Fast forward two days, and he's back in the Giants' lineup, leading off and playing in center field. He has a history of knee issues, however, and swelling was still prevalent following tests further tests, so it's still worth being cautiously optimistic about his status moving forward.
