Pence went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Marlins. Pence came through with an RBI single in the sixth inning and eventually came around to score after swiping his second stolen base of the year. The 35-year-old is still struggling to find his footing, slashing just .195/.245/.218 on the year, though he's hitting slightly better (.241) in 29 at-bats since returning from the disabled list in early June.
Pence went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Friday's 9-5 victory over the Nationals. Pence drove in a run during the second inning on a double, and he followed that up with an RBI-single in the seventh. Since returning from the disabled list, Pence is 4-for-9 with two walks and a strikeout. He figures to see plenty of opportunities in right field as the season progresses, barring another injury.
Pence (thumb) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Saturday's game against the Phillies, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. As expected, Pence will rejoin the Giants ahead of Saturday's tilt. The 35-year-old, who was hitting just .172/.197/.190 through 17 games prior to landing on the shelf, hasn't played since April 18. He's expected to serve as the team's fourth outfielder moving forward, with Mac Williamson and Gorkys Hernandez sticking in starting roles.
Pence (thumb) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Saturday's tilt against the Phillies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Pence has been on the shelf with a thumb issue since April 20, but he'll return to action this weekend as the the Giants' No. 4 outfielder. The 35-year-old appeared in 17 games before landing on the disabled list, batting just .172 with one extra-base hit and three RBI.
The Giants could activate Pence (thumb) from the 10-day disabled list as soon as Friday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Along with Pence, Joe Panik (thumb), Mark Melancon (elbow) and Alen Hanson (hamstring) are also considered candidates to return from the DL as soon as Friday, so the Giants could opt to stagger the activations over the weekend to offer more flexibility with the active roster. Regardless, Pence's return to the big club is imminent, but it remains uncertain if he'll have a full-time role waiting for him once he's officially back in the fold. Both Mac Williamson and Gorkys Hernandez have impressed in small sample sizes this season to make worthy claims to regular duty in the outfield, while Andrew McCutchen is also entrenched as a mainstay in right field. Pence has been productive during his extended rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento with a .316/.358/.388 line in 106 plate appearances, but his poor health and downturn in productivity at the big-league level the past few seasons probably makes him best suited for a reserve gig at this stage of his career.
