Pagan was batting .262 in 46 games and had not played since his walk-off inside-the-park home run on May 25 against the Colorado Rockies. The Giants switch-hitter smacked 49 hits, 10 doubles, one triple, three home runs, 24 RBI's, 15 walks, stole six bases and scored 30 runs. He produced a .314 on-base percentage and .374 slugging percentage equaling a .688 OPS.

The 31-year-old has recorded 15 multi-hit games and two three-hit games this season. He is batting .381 with runners in scoring position with 16 hits in 42 at-bats, while batting .300 with two outs with 12 hits in 40 at-bats.

Defensively, Pagan has committed four errors in 45 games started and is producing a .961 fielding percentage.

The Giants are 8-5 when Pagan leads off a game with a hit. Since Pagan's DL stint was retroactive to May 28 and because a disabled-list assignment cannot be backdated more than 10 days, he will be eligible to return Thursday when the Giants face the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Dominican native managed a .331 on-base percentage and .507 slugging percentage reaching a .837 OPS.
