Pagan to DL, Perez up, Aoki AOK, Panik may take longer, pitching progress, Evans talks about possible deals

Whew. I'm sweating. Where's Baggs? All this Giants news, and I might have room for the game score in the print story. OK, let's run 'em down, one by one. --Angel Pagan going to the 15-day disabled list retroactive to… Continue Reading → The post Pagan to DL, Perez up, Aoki AOK, Panik may take longer, pitching progress, Evans talks about possible deals appeared first on Giants Extra.

Giants place Angel Pagan on DL, recall Juan Perez

The team leader in at-bats will sit for at least two weeks with right patella tendinitis. The Giants officially placed Angel Pagan on the disabled list on Tuesday with right patella tendinitis, calling up outfielder Juan Perez from Sacramento. The only real surprise is that it took so long for everyone to realize that Pagan wasn't going to get better by playing every day. This isn't a time for ghoulish celebration, cheering at someone's misfortune. If all it took were 32 stimpaks for Pagan to feel better, I'm sure we'd all offer them from our private stash. When Pagan was healthy, he was a...

Figuring out the Angel Pagan problem

The Giants lead the league in a lot of offensive categories. They also have the single-worst starter in baseball. Alright, let's talk some Angel Pagan! Who's with me? /camera cuts away to reveal gymnasium filled with scowling teenagers, arms crossed Good, good. We've danced around it in the comments and post-game threads, possibly dancing on it, possibly dancing on it so much it's a dead topic. But there's never been a dedicated front-page article on it. Here goes: Angel Pagan probably isn't helping the Giants win baseball games. How bad has he been? The first step is to figure out how bad...

We have a winner in our Giants outfield question

Last week we asked what the Giants should do about their outfield. The options included platooning Angel Pagan and Gregor Blanco in centerfield and removing Nori Aoki from left in the late innings. Our best post came from Hawn Solo who wrote: “Option 1 is sensible: I’m surprised it hasn’t been tested out consistently since June when Pagan injured the knee and began showing signs of slowing down in the outfield and at the plate. I know Pagan is a warrior and his upper body strength has allowed him to get some hits, but his legs have prevented him from fielding, slugging, and running the...

Giants Splash: Bruce Bochy on his faith in Angel Pagan

CHICAGO — Angel Pagan is leading off and playing center field on Saturday, and Bruce Bochy was asked before the game about the switch-hitter. Pagan is hitting .150 in his last 40 at-bats, has just 17 extra-base hits on the season and no home runs. He hasn’t homered in 673 at-bats, the longest active streak in the majors. He has been playing with sore knees, his inflamed right knee bothering him the most. After Bochy rested him three days, Pagan is in the lineup a third straight game. In the previous two games, he faced a right-handed starter and left-handed starter. He...

Giants beat: Angel Pagan wants to play ‘until the wheels fall off’

ATLANTA - Angel Pagan wants to contribute to a playoff-bound team as he did in 2012 and, until he got hurt, in 2014. It’s much easier when healthy. Pagan asked manager Bruce Bochy to play Wednesday, but Bochy left his center fielder out of the lineup a third straight day because of issues with his knees, both wrapped in ice before the game. Bochy said he might play Pagan Thursday at Wrigley Field. “I want to go out there every day,” Pagan said. “I've been an everyday player, but because of this circumstance, I have to take a couple of...

What should the Giants do in their outfield?

Nori Aoki is great with the bat, but the glove needs work. (Stephen Dunn/) The Giants now head to Atlanta after dropping two of three in broiling Texas. A theme in their series with the Rangers was shoddy outfield play. Nori Aoki looked bewildered in left field and missed-played a couple of chances. Centerfielder Angel Pagan and his banged up knee prevent him from getting a good jump, particularly on balls dumped over second base. The question is – what to do? Here are the options: 1. Platoon Pagan with Gregor Blanco. Pagan is hitting .242 against right-handed pitching and against all...
