Giants Injury Update: Angel Pagan activated

By on 8/07/2014 12:45:00 PM

San Francisco Giants centerfielder Angel Pagan has been activated and will lead off in today's lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. The switch hitter, who missed 45 games with a lower back strain, slashed .307/.356/.411 (OPS+ 121) in 262 plate appearances this season.

Pagan, now in his age-32 season, has a career .283/.335/.422 line over nine seasons with the Cubs, Mets and Giants. He was drafted in 1999 by the Mets (4th round). The Cubs obtained him in January 2006 for cash considerations while he was still a minor-leaguer. He made his debut with the Cubs on April 3, 2006. In December 2011, the Mets traded him to the Giants for Ramon Ramirez and Andres Torres. After getting his World Series ring in 2012, Pagan signed a four-year $45 million contract that takes him through 2016.

The centerfielder played only 71 games in 2013, missing 84 games with surgery on his left hamstring (June 25). He returned August 30th and went  .323/.376/.495 for the rest of the season, but too late for the Giants.
