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.

Giants | Hunter Pence won't return before break

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:40:03 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) will not return before the All-Star break because he needs to play in rehab games before returning, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Pence should remained stashed in a DL slot in all leagues, and he can help immediately upon his return sometime at the end of this month. Gregor Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the biggest beneficiary of Pence's absence, and he'll remain a sleeper play against certain right-handed pitchers on FantasyScore. Blanco is hitting .315 (40-for-127) with a homer and 12 RBI against righties in 2015.

Giants | Hunter Pence swinging Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:53:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) has been making progress and will resume swinging a bat Tuesday, June 30, while using a fungo bat off a tee.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) still has a ways to go before returning to action. Stay patient and continue stashing him everywhere. Until then, Gregor Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) benefits the most in the San Fran outfield. He's not a bad sleeper option at a cheap price on FantasyScore against certain right-handed pitchers.

Giants | Hunter Pence free from splint

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:55:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (wrist) was re-evaluated Wednesday, June 24, and he no longer requires a splint. However, Pence still cannot begin baseball activities for another five to seven days.

Fantasy Tip: Receiving any fantasy contributions from Pence ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) before the All-Star break is unlikely, and at this point, don't be surprised if his injury lingers and hinders his offense for the majority of the season. Unless you can stash him in a DL slot, there isn't a lot of reason to hold onto Pence in shallow leagues, either. Continue to check back for updates.
