    • Pence may be in line for a part-time role next season, depending on the Giants' offseason moves this winter, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports. Pence is set to enter the final year of his five-year deal, and it's become clear that the club wants to upgrade defensively and potentially sign an impact bat within the next couple months. If San Francisco is able to receive the services of an outfielder or two, Pence will be expendable, and will likely be used in a limited role for the club next season. The 34-year-old slashed .260/.315/.285 with 13 home runs and 67 RBI in 134 games last season.

    • Giants' Hunter Pence: MRI comes back clean
      By RotoWire Staff

      An MRI on Pence's back came back negative, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Pence exited Sunday's game after suffering a back injury, but tests confirmed the issue wasn't anything overly serious. He'll have plenty of time to heal in the offseason, so Pence should enter the final year of his contract healthy. He posted career-low marks in OBP (.315) and slugging percentage (.385) this season, though he did manage to play in 134 contests after missing 166 games over the previous two seasons combined.

    • Giants' Hunter Pence: Heads to bench Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pence is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Manager Bruce Bochy is sitting both Pence and Buster Posey in this one, presumably just so both are well rested for the team's final home series. Pence is batting .309/.377/.471 in September, but he has just a .704 OPS for the season, by far the lowest mark of his career. Injuries in recent seasons have lowered his floor significantly.

    • Giants' Hunter Pence: Clubs 13th homer in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pence went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Pence matched last year's home run total of 13, but he needed an additional 24 games to reach that mark this season. The 34-year-old's offensive skills appear to be diminishing as a whole (.260/.314/.385), but he has contributed six hits and two homers over his last six contests, so there may still be some value to be had in the final week of the season.
