Earlier today, there were quiet rumblings that if Giants’ outfielder Angel Pagan wasn’t better, he could end up on the disabled list.

Apparently, Pagan is feeling much better.

Giants skipper Bruce Bochy was a guest on Jim Bowden’s radio show this afternoon and let Bowden know that Pagan was feeling good and would make a return to the lineup tonight.

The hamstring injury, which was initially categorized as a “minor” tweak, apparently healed well in Pagan’s two days off and the Giants will take the field against the Phillies with their leadoff hitter back in his role.

Andres Torres, who filled in for Pagan, will most likely make his way back to the bench.

Torres filled in nicely for Pagan during the two game stint, going 3 for 8 – though all three hits came on Monday night and were of the snubber variety.
