Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik taking it slow

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:23:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are taking the day off in their rehab assignment at Class AAA Sacramento Friday, July 22. Pence's rest was planned, but Panik "just wasn't feeling great" after Thursday, July 21. General manager Bobby Evans said Panik has passed his concussion protocols and wasn't woozy. Rather, Panik's timing at the plate has been off. There remain no tentative dates for Pence and Panik to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being very cautious with both of their regulars. Pence is the more attractive fantasy commodity and should still be stashed in all leagues as he nears a return. He isn't running anymore these days, but his .298 average and seven home runs looked nice before his injury. Panik offers very modest returns in all categories at the keystone and is more of a depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's back.

Giants | Slow progress for Hunter Pence

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:50:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) is still not ready to resume his rehab assignment with Class AAA Sacramento, four days after he aggravated his right hamstring in a rehab game. Manager Bruce Bochy said the Giants are being cautious with Pence, and he could rehab Thursday, July 21. Pence is at least a week behind his target date of Monday, July 25, but Bochy says the setback was "a little one."

Fantasy Tip: Pence is making his way back from a torn hamstring that came completely off the bone, so it's understandable for the Giants to practice caution here. When healthy, Pence is a middle-tier fantasy outfielder who was batting a healthy .298 with seven long balls and 36 RBI before his injury. He doesn't run anymore but can still help owners in all leagues when he's back.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik rehabbing

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:35:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are both expected to play for Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pence should remain stashed everywhere, as he was hitting .298 with seven home runs and 36 RBI in 208 plate appearances before his injury. He doesn't run anymore, but he's still useful in all fantasy formats. Panik doesn't do anything overly well and is mainly a depth option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's starting every day. Stay tuned on their progress and when they might return.

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:32:22 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Pence aggravated his hamstring injury Saturday, July 16, and he hasn't played in the majors since Wednesday, June 1.
