Profile: Pagan was one of the bigger beneficiaries of the leaguewide power surge, as he notched career highs in homers and HR/FB rate, while his ISO doubled from his career low mark set in 2015. He remains a line drive machine, though curiously that hasn't actually led to highly inflated BABIP marks. In fact, his 2016 mark was just below the league average, despite 10th in baseball in LD%. It suggests his BABIP should rebound back above .300 in 2017. Even though he just completed his age 35 season, he hasn't stopped running, and has now stolen double digit bases for three straight years. One of these seasons, his stolen base total is going to fall back into the single digits and there's no telling when. Since it's likely his power regresses, there's just too much downside here at an advanced age to rely on. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Pagan was one of the more under the radar and surprise double digit home run and steals contributors, but at his age, there's serious risk of impending collapse. Nothing in his profile suggests it's coming, aside from his age, though, so perhaps he has one more season at this level...or not.
