Angel Pagan CF SF 4 Days

Pagan, who underwent back surgery in September, confirmed Tuesday that he is 100 percent healthy, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. "I'm good, I'm perfect, " Pagain said. "I feel like never before."

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the same thing in early February, and Pagan won't have any restrictions at camp. Now 33 years old, the veteran center fielder hasn't played 100 games in a season since 2012, but he's still been effective when healthy.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Pagan no longer has issues with his lower back, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After going through a three-month rehab process following September surgery, Pagan may be able to enter spring training without significant restrictions. Ultimately, it will be difficult to determine is true level of health without seeing him go through the rigors of patrolling center field on a day-to-day basis once Cactus League games begin.

Pagan (back) will have surgery on Thursday, and it will require a three-month rehab, CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy said there was no use in trying to get Pagan healthy enough for him to contribute in the postseason, as the injury needed surgery. Gregor Blanco will continue to see most of the starts in center field and will bat leadoff. The Giants have a variety of underwhelming options in left field, including Chris Dominguez, Juan C. Perez and Gary Brown. Those in single-season leagues can officially cut ties with Pagan, but it sounds like he'll be fully recovered in time for spring training next year.

Pagan (back) isn't expected to be available for the upcoming three-game series against the Dodgers, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.

Pagan aggravated the back injury that has limited him all season during Friday's contest, and will return to San Francisco for further evaluation. The Giants currently have a 3.5 game lead for the NL Wild Card spot, so getting Pagan healthy for the postseason is likely their top priority at this point. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on much production from Pagan during the season's final week.

Pagan (back) is expected to visit the doctor Saturday and has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News reports.

Pagan has been dealing with some back issues that haven't gotten better with time off. Multiple reports have noted that Pagan is not just out Sunday, but the entire upcoming Dodgers' series is not looking optimistic. A visit to the doctor Saturday should clear things up, although the news isn't looking bright for the 33-year-old's immediate future.

Pagan (back) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Andrew Baggerty of CSN Bay Area reports.

Pagan has been dealing with a back issue all season. He returned to the lineup Friday, but was forced out early after his back seized up again. He was set to be re-evaluated Saturday, so the injury must be causing him enough pain to keep him out again. He is still considered day-to-day at this point, while Juan C. Perez will start in center field in his place.

Pagan (back) will be re-evaluated Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of reports.

Pagan returned to the lineup Friday following a three-game absence, but his back flared up yet again and he was forced to leave the game in the sixth inning. An MRI on the troublesome region earlier in the week came back clean, but the Giants will have Pagan looked at again to see if he'll be an option for the rest of the weekend.

Pagan left Friday's game with an apparent injury, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

It's unclear whether Pagan re-injured his back, which forced him to miss the past three games, or a different ailment. The team should provide an update on his status following Friday's game.

Pagan (back) will bat leadoff Friday, Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News reports.

Pagan had missed the previous three games with a back injury, but he appears to be getting healthy just in time for the Giants' final week and a half of the season. Once the Giants clinch a wild card berth, they may take the opportunity to rest Pagan in a game or two.

Pagan (back) underwent an MRI on Wednesday, which was returned negative, Andrew Baggarly of reports.

Although Pagan missed a third straight game Wednesday, he reported significant improvement and even told manager Bruce Bochy that he feels he can play Friday. With his MRI coming back clean, a return this weekend seems realistic, but the team could take precaution and hold him out for another couple days as to protect against a possible setback.
