Pagan, batting .321 with an .810 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage), sat out Sunday's series finale against Miami and received extra rest with Monday's scheduled off-day. After discussing Pagan's playing status with head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner, Bochy said they decided that another day off would further help the switch-hitter.
Pagan injured himself while attempting a diving catch Saturday against Miami.
