Giants notes: Angel Pagan lands on DL, Hunter Pence still sidelined, club promotes PCL home run leader, etc.

SAN FRANCISCO – With two of their starting outfielders getting MRIs on their hamstrings over the past 48 hours, the Giants had to address their lack of roster depth.   They placed Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list and… Continue Reading → The post Giants notes: Angel Pagan lands on DL, Hunter Pence still sidelined, club promotes PCL home run leader, etc. appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder

Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder If you drive to or from Sacramento in the coming days, you better see Caltrans workers installing signs identifying Interstate 80 as the Parker-Williamson Highway. Outfielders Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson probably know every bathroom and fast-food stop along the was as they have shuttled back and forth. Williamson has been up and down twice and the Giants on Tuesday recalled Parker for the second time to replace Angel Pagan, who went on the 15-day disabled list after aggravating his hamstring strain Monday night. Sadly for the...

The Giants might need another outfielder, and I figured out which one they should get

With limited pitchers on the trade market, the Giants might want Angel Pagan insurance in left. I have just the guy. Angel Pagan is hurt again. He hasn't been on the disabled list yet this season, but he just returned from a two-week sabbatical, and now he's hurt again. The Giants will lean on Gregor Blanco, again. They'll call up Jarrett Parker or Mac Williamson, again, unless they pretend that Pagan doesn't need to go on the DL. Again. Here's a guess disguised as a hot take: If the Giants are looking to make a trade in the next couple months, they'll target outfielders instead of...

Giants notes: Hunter Pence needs at least another day out of starting lineup to rest hamstring, but Angel Pagan starting

SAN FRANCISCO _ Hunter Pence was not in the starting lineup Sunday for the series finale against the Chicago Cubs, but Angel Pagan, who also has a sore hamstring, was starting after a single day off. Pence, who has tightness… Continue Reading → The post Giants notes: Hunter Pence needs at least another day out of starting lineup to rest hamstring, but Angel Pagan starting appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants lineups: Angel Pagan returns, plus some thoughts on Santiago Casilla

PHOENIX – Angel Pagan is back in the lineup for the first time since May 1, and as long as his left hamstring holds up, it’ll mean that the Giants went shorthanded for 11 games so they could have their… Continue Reading → The post Giants lineups: Angel Pagan returns, plus some thoughts on Santiago Casilla appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants might add 13th pitcher as Angel Pagan return nears

Giants might add 13th pitcher as Angel Pagan return nears The Giants had a 12-man pitching staff for 11 games. Expect it to be 13 when they open a four-game series at Arizona on Thursday night. Manager Bruce Bochy had to use all seven relievers in Wednesday's 13-inning win and said, I'm a little concerned there, to be honest. If so, the Giants could return outfielder Jarrett Parker to Triple-A and summon another pitcher. The Giants have played with 24 healthy men since Pagan strained his left hamstring May 1. If he can help the Giants win games against a division foe this weekend, the...

A history of Angel Pagan not going on the DL

For the fourth straight year, Pagan is missing significant time while still on the active roster. Angel Pagan didn't go on the DL yesterday, marking the 8th consecutive game when he was both too injured to play baseball and not on the list of Giants players who are too injured to play baseball. This has been a pattern for him and the Giants during his time in San Francisco, as this same situation has also occurred in each of the previous three years. Let's go over that history, because it was either that or read about Matt Cain, and who wants to do that? 2013 Angel Pagan was having a subpar...

SF Giants Minor Lines 5/9

Tyler Beede stars with arm, legs, and bat in an elite pitching matchup. Tyler Beede was showing off his premium athleticism last night in his duel with Lucas Giolito. I'll get to his pitching, and his untimely departure from the game, later. For now, let's check out the other aspects of Tyler's game. After Giolito had breezed through the order allowing just a walk in the first 2.1 IP, Beede came to the plate and got the offense started with not just a hit, but a stolen base to boot! And if that wasn't enough, he scored the team's first run as well. Watch him fly! (PS, also, pretty cool...

Giants notes: Angel Pagan not ready yet, young outfielders swap roster spots, etc.

Giants steadfast in not placing Pagan on disabled list

Giants steadfast in not placing Pagan on disabled list The ability to place players on the disabled list retroactively for 10 days creates flexibility but also forces teams into tough decisions, as with the Giants and Angel Pagan. On Monday, eight days after Pagan strained his left hamstring, the left fielder remained in a holding pattern, not on the disabled list yet unable to play. Pagan has made enough progress to persuade the Giants he might return to the lineup by Thursday. If they disable him, he will not be eligible to return until next Tuesday, costing him an entire four-game...
