ANGEL PAGAN. B-. . OF. San Francisco Giants

Angel Pagan had an OK season at best. It’s no secret he’s been on the steady decline since his 2012 and 2013 seasons. Constant injuries have interrupted any rhythm he could get in the last few years. Taking all that into account, he gets a B-.

Pagan had six errors, good for most on the team, his arm strength was next to nothing at the end of the season. Offensively, he outperformed everyone but Pence, but never got the XBH that we were used to seeing in 2012 and 2013. With his contract ending this year, don’t expect the Giants to sign him unless they have no other option for left-field. With Parker and Williamson available, plus the meteoric rise of Austin Slater up the prospect ranks, Pagan’s previously fruitful tenure in San Francisco will most likely be done.
