(3/22/2015) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is recovering from a fractured forearm in early March. While he's not expected back until May, Pence is sporting a small sign of progress.

Giants expect Hunter Pence back around May 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) The Giants expect outfielder Hunter Pence to be back around May 1, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Pence fractured his forearm on Thursday, and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks. It was thought the club might explore the trade market for a replacement, but they could opt to hold out if Pence can return after one month.

The 31-year-old Pence hit .277/.332/.445 over 650 at-bats last season. 


Giants' Hunter Pence out 6-8 weeks with forearm fracture


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence has suffered a nondisplaced fracture of the left ulna in his forearm and will miss the next six-to-eight weeks, the team announced.

The team believed Pence was dealing with a forearm fracture after being hit with a pitch Thursday, and subsequent X-rays confirmed the severity of the injury.

Pence hit .277/.332/.445 with 20 home runs, 74 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 650 at-bats in 2014, playing 162 games for the second straight season. However, the injury will end the outfielder's streak of consecutive games played at 383, leaving him 85 games shy of tying the franchise's all-time leader.

The Giants could turn to fourth outfielder Gregor Blanco to fill in regularly in the lineup until Pence is ready to return.

Pence will likely not play all 162 games this season after discussing the benefits of occassional rest with Bochy. He needs to continue his streak for 85 games to catch the Giants' all-time franchise leader for consecutive games played, Bill Terry.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

“I’ll probably drop [Blanco] down in the order until he gets his swing,” Bochy said. Blanco had been filling in for Angel Pagan, who has been sidelined with an injury. It's unclear whether Pence and Belt will retain their spots in the order once Pagan is able to return.
