San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) is pretty much done for the year, general manager Brian Sabean said on the radio on Friday, July 5.
Fantasy Tip: This isn't surprising, but there was some hope he'd be back in September. Fantasy owners don't have to worry about letting him go, and Gregor Blanco should continue to rule in center field as long as he's producing. Andres Torres has received most of the time in left, so it'll be interesting to see if the Giants look for alternatives. Cole Gillespie just replaced Juan C. Perez on the 25-man roster, but Perez is likely the only other in-house candidate who could factor in.
