Can the Giants win without Pagan?

Back in early August, we speculated along with the baseball world about whether Angel Pagan's return after a lengthy absence could really ignite the San Francisco Giants, which had fallen on hard times and been overtaken by the Los Angeles Dodgers for first-place in the National League West.

In Pagan's first five starts back in the Giants lineup, it didn't look like it. San Francisco dropped all five games. Over his next 27 starts, however, the Giants went 19-8, and it became clear just how important the center fielder and leadoff hitter is to this team.

But with Pagan missing the last two games due to the recurrence of his back problems, the Giants run to the playoffs could be in jeopardy.

Doug Martin (knee) sat out Week 2 and could only watch as backup Bobby Rainey carved his way through the St. Louis defense to the tune of 144 yards on 22 carries.

Once Martin returns, it's expected that he and Rainey will get a fairly even share of the running back duties, but has Martin's status changed for the Thursday Night matchup against Atlanta?

Spurs the next stop for Beasley?

After a promising first two months in Miami last season, it's safe to say that the Michael Beasley experiment didn't really pan out for the Heat. At least not well enough to lead them to a third-straight NBA championship. The former No. 2 overall pick in 2008 managed to post a 16.80 PER, his best since his rookie season, however he virtually disappeared from the rotation as the season wore on and had zero impact in the playoffs.

Many have speculated where Beasley might end up next, and now there is a report that San Antonio is interested.

Carl Landry's first season of his second go-round in Sacramento didn't go as planned as two separate injuries limited him to 18 games. And even when he did play, he simply wasn't himself on the court.

First, he suffered a torn left hip flexor that kept him out until Jan. 19, then a torn meniscus in late February required surgery and ended his season.

Where does the 30-year-old veteran power forward stand in his recovery process? Here's the latest out of Sacramento.

Willie Young doesn't have nearly the NFL resume of several other big-name players that he lines up next to on Chicago's defensive line, but the former seventh-round pick is looking like one of the NFL's most underrated signings of the offseason. You might recall his fishing-themed sack dance in San Francisco on Sunday night.

Robert Griffin III's dislocated left ankle didn't require surgery but is expected to keep him sidelined for a good chunk of time, and if Kirk Cousins continues to play like he did in Week 2 then Griffin's days in Washington could effectively be over.

What, then, might the Redskins be able to get on the trade market for the No. 2 overall pick in 2012 after Griffin's two-plus injury-plagued seasons? Lets take a look.

Though the Miami Marlins had been hoping that Giancarlo Stanton would be able to get back on the field again in 2014, the slugger's recovery from getting hit in the face with a pitch is not likely to progress quickly enough to allow him to do so.
