Hunter Pence was 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a run scored in Monday's 8-4 comeback win over the Brewers.

Pence also drew a walk and stole a base. He put the exclamation point on a seven-run sixth inning with his two-run double. He's batting .342 (13-for-38) with nine RBI in 10 games since coming off the DL earlier this month.

Hunter Pence went 2-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Thursday, leading the Giants to a 4-0 victory over the Dodgers.

Pence delivered an RBI single off Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning to increase the Giants advantage to 2-0. He'd later add another RBI knock in the eighth to increase their lead. He doesn't look like he's missed a beat since returning from the disabled list, going 6-for-20 (.300) with a homer and four RBI in his first five games.
May 21 - 7:43 PM

Giants activated OF Hunter Pence from the 15-day disabled list.

Pence will jump right back into the Giants lineup, batting sixth and playing right field on Saturday. Fantasy owners should get him active immediately.
May 16 - 3:09 PM

Hunter Pence (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Pence batted .294/.350/.647 with two home runs over five rehab games with Triple-A Sacramento to convince the Giants that he was ready to go. It's possible that he'll still be a little rusty, but fantasy owners should feel free to go ahead and stick him back into their lineups.
May 15 - 5:09 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said activation of Hunter Pence (forearm) is a day-to-day call.

Pence has been playing with Triple-A Sacramento in recent days, and he'll continue to travel with the minor league team in the days ahead despite his imminent activation. Owners should check his status daily, as it seems he could be brought off the disabled list any minute.
May 13 - 6:34 PM

Hunter Pence (forearm) is expected to begin his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

Pence is expected to need 7-10 minor league contests before he's ready to rejoin the Giants which should happen in late May barring any setbacks. He has been taking batting practice throughout the week without any issue.

Giants general manager Bobby Evans said in an interview on SiriusXM Wednesday that Hunter Pence (forearm) will need 7-10 rehab games.

Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Pence could begin a rehab assignment within the next week, so the beginning of three-game home series against the Dodgers on 19 looks to be a probable return date if all goes well. Pence will continue taking batting practice through Friday before likely officially being cleared for an assignment to a minor league affiliate.
May 6 - 3:00 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Hunter Pence (forearm) could begin a rehab assignment within the next week.

Bochy was impressed with how Pence looked during hitting drills Tuesday. "His BP today got better as it went," Bochy said. "He started on a tee, then worked off a machine. They got it cranked up pretty good." Pence will continue taking batting practice through Friday and could be cleared for a rehab assignment after that.
May 6 - 11:47 AM

Hunter Pence (forearm) is scheduled to take batting practice through Friday.

He'll have had a week's worth of batting practice under his belt by then. Assuming everything goes well, the Giants should then schedule a rehab assignment for Pence. He's tracking towards a mid-May return.
May 4 - 7:48 PM

Hunter Pence (forearm) took batting practice without issue on Friday.

Pence had originally been slated to start facing live pitching on Saturday, but has been progressing faster than expected. He'll repeat the process on Saturday and Sunday before he's re-evaluated. If everything checks out, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment next week.
May 1 - 8:20 PM

Hunter Pence (forearm) could be a few days away from taking batting practice.

Pence "had his best day" of rehab Wednesday, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Batting practice is a big step for the outfielder in his return from a fractured forearm. He'll still need a rehab stint, but Pence could be back with the Giants by the middle of May if things continue to go well.
Apr 29 - 8:37 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Hunter Pence (forearm) is about a week away from taking batting practice.

Bochy conceded that it was an educated guess on his part, but it offers a rough timeline. Pence's recovery from a fractured forearm is coming alone a little more slowly than expected, as the Giants had hoped he'd be ready to go at the beginning of May. It's now looking like the best-case scenario for his return will be mid-May.
Apr 27 - 8:40 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that it's becoming "less likely" that Hunter Pence (forearm) returns before the end of April.

It's been looking that way for a while, as Pence still has a bunch of boxes to check. It was reported earlier Tuesday that Pence swung off a tee in a batting cage, although Bochy didn't confirm that, only saying that the outfielder has not resumed full baseball activities. He looks to be at least a couple weeks away from being activated.
Apr 21 - 10:44 PM

Hunter Pence (forearm) swung off a tee in the batting cage on Tuesday.

It appears to be the first time he's swung a real bat, as he had been taking light swings with a fungo bat. Pence should be ready for game action before too long, but he's likely still a few weeks away from a return.
