Line of the Day: June 29th, 2011

Angel Pagan was 4-for-6 with two doubles, four RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in the New York Mets 16-9 victory over the Detroit Tigers. He had a streak of seven consecutive plate appearances reaching base snapped in the fourth inning.

Line: 6 AB, 3 R, 4 H, 4 RBI; 2 2B, 1 SB

My fantasy perspective: Pagan had a horrible April (.159 BA in 19 games), then missed 30 games due to an oblique injury before returning to action May 27th. Since returning, he has a .325 BA (.349 BABIP) with one homer, 18 RBI, 21 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 31 games. Those numbers are much more on par with his 2011 season and may prove to some it wasn't a fluke.

Pagan has 13 stolen bases in 50 games played. At that rate, he has the potential for another 20 stolen bases over the remaining 80ish games. Your chance to snag him off waivers may have passed in ESPN leagues, where his ownership rate is up to 87.4% of leagues but check out your Yahoo! league's waivers. Somehow, he's still just 50% owned.
