Giants | Hunter Pence placed on DL

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 22:58:10 -0700

The San Francisco Giants placed OF Hunter Pence (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 18, due to a strained oblique. The team is hopeful he can return by early September. With Pence sidelined, the Giants outfield consisted of OFs Gregor Blanco, Ryan Lollis and Justin Maxwell.

Fantasy Tip: With Pence back on the shelf Ryan Lollis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Justin Maxwell ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are likely to see an increase in at-bats over the next couple of weeks.

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:19:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (oblique) will undergo an MRI exam on his left oblique Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) hasn't been able to stay on the field for any length of time this season and has played just 52 games. Check back for an official update before making any hasty roster decisions in seasonal formats, though.

Giants | No Hunter Pence vs. Cards

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:07:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. OF Ryan Lollis draws into the lineup and is playing left field and batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Pence ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in your seasonal lineups and avoid him in daily contests Tuesday. The veteran is having a tough month and sports an underwhelming .227/.271/.439 slash line in August. Lollis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a worthy low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Tuesday, as he had a .861 OPS over 274 plate appearances at Class AAA Sacramento this season. It isn't an ideal matchup against Lynn ($8,200, 16.4% of cap), though.

Giants | Hunter Pence excels against Houston

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 10:39:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is 12-for-31 with four home runs and eight RBI in eight games against the Houston Astros this year.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been very productive for his fantasy owners when he's been on the field this year. However, lefties haven't been his cup of tea in 2015, as he's hitting only .242 (8-for-33) with one of his seven home runs against them this year. He's facing perhaps the hottest southpaw in baseball, too, in Scott Kazmir. Think about avoiding Pence tonight despite his good numbers against Houston.

Giants | Hunter Pence owns Kyle Lohse

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:00:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is 18-for-53 (.340) in his career against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse, who he faces Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) makes for a solid play tonight on FantasyScore given his history against Lohse and Lohse's struggles in 2015.

Giants | Hunter Pence has another big night

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:27:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 4-for-5 with a run, two doubles and two RBI during the Giants' 9-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is 18-for-51 with six runs, five doubles, three home runs, 15 RBI and a 1.016 OPS over 12 games since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, July 7. He should be viewed as a second-tier outfielder in all fantasy formats going forward, and Pence is a worthy FantasyScore target when facing favorable opposing pitchers.

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 05:13:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 3-for-6 with two runs, a double, a home run and two RBI during the Giants' 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been rolling since he returned from injury July 7, he has three runs, two doubles, two home runs, nine RBI and a .963 OPS. He is locked into the heart of the San Francisco lineup, and he should continue to find himself in plenty of RBI situations. He is a currently a bargain at FantasyScore, and Pence should be owned in all seasonal formats.

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 05:07:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence went 1-for-4 with a run, a home run and four RBI during the Giants' 15-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, July 7, Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a hit in all three games he has played with seven RBI. He is a five-category contributor and should be owned in all seasonal formats. His current FantasyScore cap hit presents an excellent bargain, too.

Giants | Hunter Pence solid on offense and defense

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 04:54:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence returned to the lineup Tuesday, July 7, after time on the disabled list due to a wrist injury. He had an RBI single and a strong defensive play in the outfield to save runs as the Giants scored a 3-0 shutout over the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) lights a spark under the entire team, and he appears to be a safe play in FantasyScore once again. A good rule of thumb is to let a player prove he's healthy before bringing him back to the lineup, and that was the case here.

Giants | Hunter Pence activated, starting

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:57:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 7, and he is hitting cleanup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) wasn't expected to return until after the All-Star break, but he made enough progress over the weekend to convince the Giants otherwise. It may be a risk to run with Pence immediately on FantasyScore, but he could also be an against-the-grain play with many not expecting him back just yet.
