Giants | Hunter Pence moved down

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:40:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is being moved to sixth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart Friday, April 22. As a result, 3B Matt Duffy is hitting third before C Buster Posey.

Fantasy Tip: Pence isn't lighting the world on fire but does have two home runs and 11 RBI on the year despite hitting .230. Duffy is in a similar spot as Pence, so the shakeup is an attempt to get both going. It could work against Cosart, who is sporting a 6.10 ERA in two starts this year. Both Duffy and Pence are worth a look as contrarian plays tonight in DFS action.

Giants | Hunter Pence being rested

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:31:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence, who is 4-for-24 in his career against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke, is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has three hits in 15 career at-bats against Greinke with four strikeouts, so it doesn't get much better for him. Greinke hasn't quite been his 2015 version with his new team in 2016, but the matchup nevertheless shouldn't inspire confidence for Blanco in daily affairs.

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:51:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is batting .350 with two home runs and seven RBI in 20 career at-bats against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa, who he is facing Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa inexplicable often pitches better at Coors Field, but he's off to a bad start in 2016 with 12 earned runs in 8 2/3 innings in his first two starts (12.46 ERA). Pence is a fine purchase in daily games today. Start him everywhere.

Giants | Hunter Pence open to more rest

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 11:52:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence said he's open to more rest days this year after playing all 162 games in 2013 and 2014 before missing 110 games last season due to injuries. He did some Pilates this offseason and hit two line-drive home runs in Cactus League play Tuesday, March 22, after being sidelined by Achilles' tendinitis early in camp.

Fantasy Tip: Pence's season was a disappointment because of his injuries last year, but he's primed for a bounce-back season. Once he returned from injury in 2015, his skills didn't miss a beat, minus is lack of stolen base attempts. He'll likely come discounted this year, but scoop him up in the middle rounds as you build outfield depth.

Giants | Hunter Pence homers in first game

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 15:45:59 -0800

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (Achilles') had a two-run home run in his first spring game Friday, March 11. He's been dealing with Achilles' tendonitis.

Fantasy Tip: That's a good sign that Pence's Achilles' injury is behind him. He struggled through injuries last year, too, but when he was healthy he was his typical self, minus the running game. Target him as undervalued this year in the middle rounds.
