Giants | Hunter Pence to start rehab Friday

Fri, 08 May 2015 08:58:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (forearm) will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento Friday, May 8, according to manager Bruce Bochy. However, Bochy isn't estimating when Pence will return from the disabled list after fracturing his left forearm after being hit by a pitch in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could be as much as a week or two away from returning to make his season debut in 2015, it just depends on how his arm responds to game action. Once he's back, Justin Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Gregor Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will move to bench roles as extra outfielders. You should probably give Pence at least a few games before trusting him at FantasyScore.

Giants | A Hunter Pence announcement coming soon

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:39:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence's (forearm) swings Tuesday, May 5, impressed manager Bruce Bochy so much that the organization is accelerating the plan to begin his minor league rehab assignment. An announcement concerning Pence's rehab assignment is expected Thursday, May 7. "I thought he was really, really close to normal swings," said Bochy, after watching Pence's session on Tuesday. "He handled velocity off the machine well. He's still going to be stiff when he starts out, but it's loosening up to the point where he's letting it go. He's not hesitating and that's a good sign."

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Pence ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all seasonal formats and check back for updates concerning his rehab assignment and an updated return timeline. FantasyScore players will want to be patient with Pence initially. He has missed a lot of time and there will likely be an adjustment period to major league pitching.
