Pagan went 2-for-4 in Wednesday's World Baseball Classic championship game loss to Team USA. He hit .303 (8-for-31) in seven games for Puerto Rico.

EDGE Analysis

Pagan remains a free agent but showed he's worthy of a big league job in the WBC and also showed he's healthy. Pagan was close to signing with Baltimore earlier this spring before failing a physical, Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports reports. Atlanta was reportedly interested in signing Pagan before the WBC started, so it may not be long until he signs with a MLB team.

Pagan will play for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, but remains a free agent as MLB spring training begins.

EDGE Analysis

It's odd that Pagan hasn't signed with a new team yet, especially since he hit a career-high 12 homers while slashing .277/.331/.418 last season. He'll get to showcase his skills in the WBC.

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?
