Collins said he received a message Tuesday from rehab coordinator Randy Niemann indicating Pagan -- who played in a simulated game that day in Port St. Lucie -- was progressing.
"It was all good news," Collins said. "He's swinging real, real well. He ran great. He has no discomfort at all. So hopefully the recovery is fast. For sure I know we want him to play four days there."
Pagan appeared close to returning once before, but was shut down after a May 5 game with St. Lucie when oblique discomfort resurfaced.
