"He's getting close," manager Bruce Bochy said, "but you can tell he's not quite ready for rehab."

Pence hit .277 with 20 home runs in 2014.

Pence spent Saturday shagging flies and performing other outfield drills. 

"I'm working every day to get better," Pence said. 

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Pence will take batting practice and other baseball activities this week.

"He's getting better and better," Bochy said. "The big day is going to be when he can take BP. We just don't know when that will be."

Giants' Bochy: 'No way' to take Justin Maxwell out of lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Giants outfield is getting more crowded with the news that Brandon Belt will see more time in left field, and manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Justin Maxwell will continue to receive regular playing time when Hunter Pence returns from the disabled list, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

"There’s no way you can take Maxwell out of the lineup right now," Bochy said. "You’ve got to find a place to put him, with the way he’s been swinging."

Maxwell, who homered Saturday, has hit .308/.400/.615 with three home runs and nine RBI in 39 at-bats. Bochy mentioned the possibility of Maxwell and Pence manning the corners while center fielder Angel Pagan gets days off here and there.

"I could keep them all going, keep them all fresh," Bochy said.

If everyone's healthy, it appears that Nori Aoki could see the starkest reduction in playing time, despite him posting a .303/.391/.382 line with five stolen bases in 76 at-bats while serving as the team's regular leadoff batter.

"He's got to go through hitting off a tee, soft toss, all the boxes he's got to check off," manager Bruce Bochy said, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
