Angel Pagan remains unsigned weeks into the 2017 Major League Baseball season, and it appears he won't be making an appearance on the diamond at all this year.

On Wednesday, Pagan told El Vocero's Yamaira Muniz Perez (h/t MLBTradeRumors.com's Steve Adams) he plans to sit out this season to spend time with his family.

However, Pagan stopped short of calling it quits and left the door open for a return in 2018.

The 35-year-old spent the last five seasons with the San Francisco Giants, and he remained effective at the plate throughout the 2016 season.
