Pence (hamstring) ran sprints Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Pence anticipated a fairly short stint on the disabled list, but this marks the first time that he's been able to run since being sidelined. It's unclear how close he is to getting back to game action, but more information on that front should emerge in the coming days.
Manager Bruce Bochy said that he doesn't expect Pence (hamstring) to come off the disabled list during the Giants' upcoming four-game series with the Cubs, which begins Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Pence is first eligible to return Tuesday, but since he has yet to start running, it sounds like he'll need more time off to recover from a left hamstring strain. Mac Williamson should keep seeing the bulk of the at-bats in right field until Pence is activated.
Pence (hamstring) expects to be activated from the disabled list around the time he is eligible to return on May 23, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Pence is dealing with a minor hamstring injury that initially wasn't expected to require a disabled list stint at all, and it may not have warranted one if not for the existence of the new 10-day list. The 34-year-old missed significant time to a hamstring injury last season, so the Giants are likely making a smart decision by playing it safe. Look for Mac Williamson and Gorkys Hernandez to occupy right field in Pence's absence.
Pence was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Pence hasn't appeared in a game since last Friday, and while the injury was originally thought to be minor, it will now force the 34-year-old to spend some time on the disabled list. Mac Williamson was recalled to fill Pence's spot on the roster, and both he and Gorkys Hernandez are options to fill in at right field for the time being. The move is retroactive to Saturday, making him eligible to return to the Giants on May 23, though it remains unclear whether he'll be ready at that point.
Pence was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain following a recent MRI and may land on the disabled list as a result, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Until this point, it had been thought that Pence's leg injury was fairly minor, as he'd hoped to return either Sunday or Monday. However, manager Bruce Bochy said that Pence is only available to pinch-hit, and that the DL is in play. More information regarding the course of action for Pence should be available in the near future. Until he's ready to return, Justin Ruggiano and Gorkys Hernandez will likely share time in right field.
