Giants Injury Update: Angel Pagan sits but expects to play Monday

By on 8/24/2014 04:00:00 PM

The San Francisco Giants entered Sunday's game with the Washington Nationals in second place in the National League West, four and a half games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. With a little more than a month remaining in the season, the Giants are in good position to make a run in the division. There is some promising news on the injury front, as Angel Pagan, who left Friday's game with a calf injury, should be ready to start tomorrow against the Colorado Rockies.

Our own Pete Schwichtenberg reported yesterday that Pagan, who has battled injuries much of the past two seasons, left Friday night's game in the ninth inning with a cramp in his calf.

Alex Pavlovic, who covers the Giants for the Mercury News, tweeted the following update on Pagan.
Pagan, in his ninth Major League season, is batting .301 with three home runs and 22 RBI this season.  The veteran outfielder has played for the Cubs, Mets and Giants and is a career .283 hitter with 49 home runs and 317 RBI.
