Pagan went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan continues to produce since returning from the disabled list June 14, batting .304 with two homers and three steals over that span. He is batting second in the lineup with Joe Panik (concussion) sidelined, which should keep his run-producing opportunities high. Pagan provides a little bit of everything from a fantasy perspective, making him a valuable fantasy asset while he is locked in and healthy.

Pagan homered as part of a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan was hitless in his first 10 July at-bats before his Independence Day explosion. With four home runs, Pagan has already topped his totals from each of the past two years, but he hasn't reached double-digits since 2010 with the Mets and shouldn't be expected to do so this year. Still, at .289/.336/.423, he has given the Giants solid production out of center field.

Pagan (general soreness) is back in the lineup Monday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan was held out of action Sunday due to what was described as general soreness, but the veteran will return to center field and bat leadoff for the Monday afternoon showdown against Colorado. The San Francisco outfield has been particularly taxed of late with Denard Span (neck) and Gregor Blanco (knee) both nursing respective ailments, so Pagan's presence in the lineup will provide a much-needed offensive boost.

Updating a previous report, Pagan is out of the lineup due to general soreness, freelance reporter Andrew Baggarly reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not too surprising to see this explanation given, as Pagan had reached nine consecutive starts only one other time this season. That being said, his status is worth monitoring heading into Monday's matchup against the Rockies.

Pagan is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, freelance writer Andrew Baggarly reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan has made nine straight starts for the Giants, but the switch-hitting outfield will take a seat with back-to-back day games on tap for San Francisco. In his stead, manager Bruce Bochy will employ an outfield composed of Jarrett Parker (left), Gregor Blanco (center) and Mac Williamson (right).

Pagan went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, two walks and two runs in Thursday's 12-6 victory over the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran closed out a highly productive June with 13 hits in his last 28 at-bats, and hit safely in 12 of the 15 games he played in overall. Pagan has brought his average up 26 points since June 14, and drove in 15 RBI in that abbreviated span as well.

Pagan moved up to second in the batting order Tuesday, delivering a 2-for-5 performance with a pair of RBI and a run scored against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

With Joe Panik sidelined due to concussion symptoms, manager Bruce Bochy opted to slide Pagan into the vacant two-hole. With a solid .346 OBP and an ability to make good contact, Pagan profiles as the perfect substitute for Panik in the top third of the lineup. There is a chance the Giants elect to place Panik on the 7-day concussion DL, so Pagan could see some extended run batting second, which would result in an increase in counting stats and potential stolen base opportunities. This move gives him a slight bump in value, but he should be owned regardless after batting .480 with 11 RBI and two steals over his last seven games.

Pagan went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI Friday. He also stole his seventh bag of the season in a 5-4 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan has hit the ground running since returning from the disabled list June 14, batting .306 with nine RBI and two steals over that span. With Hunter Pence sidelined, the Giants have been batting him in the middle of the lineup, which would explain his outburst in RBI. When healthy, Pagan can be a productive fantasy outfielder, and he seems to be in the zone right now.

Pagan is out of the lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He is one of several veterans who will get a break during Thursday's day game. When healthy, Pagan offers sneaky value, especially in deeper formats, as he can make modest contributions across the board. Jarrett Parker will get the start in left field and hit seventh Thursday.

Pagan went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 15-4 win at Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan's grand slam was part of a seven-run fourth inning that blew the game open. The veteran outfielder came into this game with just two hits and no RBI in his last four games, but those numbers could get inflated in a hurry with almost everyone else in the Giants order clicking at the moment.
