News: Pagan will have season-ending surgery to repair a bulging disk in his back. Manager Bruce Bochy says the operation will be Thursday in Los Angeles. Recovery is expected to take about three months, so Pagan would not be available if the Giants reach the postseason. Impact: Pagan missed his fourth straight game when the Giants played the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. He sat out six of the team's previous seven games on the current trip, and missed 44 games earlier in the season because of his back. (STATS, 9:33pm)

News: Pagan (back) will have surgery on Thursday, and it will require a three-month rehab, CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly reports. Impact: Manager Bruce Bochy said there was no use in trying to get Pagan healthy enough for him to contribute in the postseason, as the injury needed surgery. Gregor Blanco will continue to see most of the starts in center field and will bat leadoff. The Giants have a variety of underwhelming options in left field, including Chris Dominguez, Juan C. Perez and Gary Brown. Those in single-season leagues can officially cut ties with Pagan, but it sounds like he'll be fully recovered in time for spring training next year.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan (back) isn't expected to be available for the upcoming three-game series against the Dodgers, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Pagan aggravated the back injury that has limited him all season during Friday's contest, and will return to San Francisco for further evaluation. The Giants currently have a 3.5-game lead for the NL Wild Card spot, so getting Pagan healthy for the postseason is likely their top priority at this point. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on much production from Pagan during the season's final week.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan (back) is expected to visit the doctor Saturday and has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Impact: Pagan has been dealing with some back issues that haven't gotten better with time off. Multiple reports have noted that he isn't just out Sunday, but the entire upcoming Dodgers' series isn't looking optimistic. A visit to the doctor Saturday should clear things up, although the news isn't looking bright for the 33-year-old's immediate future.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan (back) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Andrew Baggerly of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Pagan has been dealing with a back issue all season. He returned to the lineup Friday but was forced out early after his back seized up again. He was set to be evaluated Saturday, so the injury must be causing him enough pain to keep him out again. He's still considered day-to-day at this point, while Juan C. Perez will start in center field in his place.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 20, 2014
News: Pagan (back) will be evaluated Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports. Impact: Pagan returned to the lineup Friday following a three-game absence, but his back flared up yet again, and he was forced to leave the game in the sixth inning. An MRI on the troublesome region earlier in the week came back clean, but the Giants will have Pagan looked at again to see if he'll be an option for the rest of the weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan left Friday's game with an apparent injury, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: It's unclear whether Pagan re-injured his back, which forced him to miss the past three games, or a different ailment. The team should provide an update on his status following Friday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan (back) will bat leadoff Friday, Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News reports. Impact: Pagan had missed the previous three games with a back injury, but he appears to be getting healthy just in time for the Giants' final week and a half of the season. Once the Giants clinch a wild card berth, they may take the opportunity to rest Pagan in a game or two.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Pagan (back) underwent an MRI on Wednesday, which was returned negative, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports. Impact: Although Pagan missed a third straight game Wednesday, he reported significant improvement and even told manager Bruce Bochy that he feels he can play Friday. With his MRI coming back clean, a return this weekend seems realistic, but the team could take precaution and hold him out for another couple days as to protect against a possible setback.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Pagan (back) will undergo an MRI and may have to receive a cortisone shot, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports. Impact: Pagan has missed the last two games, and will sit out for a third consecutive day Wednesday with a stiff back. His issue has been ongoing, and may require surgery in the offseason, but for now he should be considered day-to-day.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Pagan (back) is out of the lineup again Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Impact: Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup because of back stiffness, and missed Tuesday's game as well.

Perez getting the start in center field and batting eighth for the Giants.(RotoWire, )

News: Pagan (back) remains out of the Giants' lineup Tuesday. Impact: He had a stiff back Monday, and it is presumably still bothering him Tuesday. Juan C. Perez will once again get the start in center field.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 15, 2014
News: Pagan has been scratched from Monday's lineup due to a stiff back, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports. Juan C. Perez will start in his place. Impact: Pagan's back must have stiffened up during pregame exercises, so he'll take a seat while Perez steps in as the starting center fielder and leadoff man.(RotoWire, )
