Angel Pagan - #16
28 years old (29 in August)
5th Major League Season
6'2" 195 pounds
Bats S/Throws R
The Good: Sound swing and approach from both sides of the plate, but better results as a right-handed hitter (.299/.350/.452). Generates good bat speed and has gap power, which in Citi Field resulted in 6 triples last year. Runs very well and is an average to above average defensive outfielder. Prototypical 4th outfielder
The Bad: Angel has had a long list of injuries, including 2 DL stints last year. Led the league in boneheaded base-running gaffes last year. Doesn't have home run power (career high 6 HR last year). As a left-handed hitter, career .245/.291/.425
Role: Starting center fielder until Beltran returns, and will then go back to his role as the 4th outfielder.
