Giants' Angel Pagan leaves game with knee soreness

According to Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News, Giants’ Angel Pagan left the game Tuesday night against the Braves, because of knee soreness. Bochy tells Pavlovic that Pagan will get the day off Wednesday when they finish the three game series with Atlanta in a day game.

Pagan, 32, has been dealing with knee soreness and missed a couple games last month after tweaking it during an at-bat. Bochy said Pagan’s knee was “barking a little bit” tonight. 

In 38 games in 2014, Pagan has a slash of .322/.371/.445 with 3 home runs, 15 runs batted in, 12 walks, 21 strikeouts, and 8 stolen bases.  He has been in the top tier in leadoff hitters this season as he is getting on base more than ever at the top of the lineup. He was generously given a four-year, $40 million dollar deal after his splendid 2012 season where he helped the Giants win their second World Series in four years.

In 2013, Pagan played in just 71 games after tearing his hamstring after a walk off inside-the-park home run in June against Colorado. He ended up with a line of .282/.334/.414 with 5 home runs, 30 runs batted in, 23 walks, 36 strikeouts while stealing just 9 bases.
