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.

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.

Pagan lifted his average back above .300 on Thursday by going 3 for 4 in a 4-1 win over Colorado.

Pagan is batting .325 in his last nine games.

The San Francisco Giants have activated Pagan from the 15-day disabled list. The Giants made the move before Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pagan missed 44 games with back inflammation. He is batting .307 with three home runs and 19 RBIs.

Pagan went 3 for 5 with two RBIs in Saturday's win over the New York Mets.

He's batting .350 with 20 runs scored in his last 21 games.

Pagan had three hits Monday.

Pagan enjoyed a big effort in which the Giants' 'Killer Ps' - Pagan, Hunter Pence and Buster Posey - combined for nine hits and eight runs scored.

Pagan had two hits and drove in two runs in the Giants' 5-4 victory over Colorado on Sunday.

Pagan is fifth in the majors with a .412 average and his 10 RBIs are tied for the team lead. All 10 of those RBIs have come with two outs.

Pagan extended his season-opening hit streak to 10 games with a single in a 6-5 loss in 10 innings to Arizona on Thursday.

Pagan is batting .442 (19 for 43) with eight RBIs during his streak. He also has an OPS of 1.094.

Pagan went 3 for 5 in a 7-3 loss to Arizona on Wednesday to extend his season-opening hit streak to nine games.

He's batting .462 (18 for 39) with four doubles, one home run and eight RBIs this season. Pagan also has seven multihit games.

Pagan stayed hot in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, going 2 for 4.

Pagan has hit safely in each of his first seven games, hitting .419. He's a fantasy commodity again after injuries rendered him mostly irrelevant in 2013.

Pagan hit a three-run home run in San Francisco's five-run eighth inning and the Giants rallied to beat Arizona 8-5 on Thursday in a game that was halted briefly in the top of the first due to a swarm of bees in the outfield.

Pagan also had three hits and is 8 for 19 (.421) with six RBIs in the first four games this season.
