Pagan hasn’t played in the majors since 2016.

He spent five years with the San Francisco Giants, helping the team to a World Series title in 2012, and played four years with the New York Mets and two with the Chicago Cubs.

Pagan said in 2017 he wasn’t officially retired, but contended he hadn't received a high enough contract to make a return to baseball attractive. He remains unsigned.
