Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Hunter Pence (oblique) is "ready to go" for Friday's Cactus League opener.
Pence is dealing with an intercostal injury initially sustained prior to the start of spring camp. He took part in batting practice on Wednesday, though, and there doesn't seem to be any reason for long term concern. Said Bochy, "I’ll make that call [Thursday] once I talk to the staff, but Hunter assured me he’s a full go with no limitations, and he really wants to play [on Friday]." Feb 22 - 4:59 PM

Hunter Pence (oblique) took some swings against Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday.

Pence tweaked his side before reporting to camp, but he took swings off a tee and in the batting cage on Sunday and now he's been cleared to face live pitching. It's a sign that he should be good to go pretty soon.

Hunter Pence (oblique) took 25 swings in a batting cage on Sunday.

Pence is being brought along slowly after tweaking his oblique prior to the start of spring training. He's making nice progress and shouldn't be too far behind his Giants teammates.
Feb 19 - 2:26 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that Hunter Pence had to slow down his workouts recently after receiving treatment on his side.

Pence will be re-evaluated when he reports to spring training in Arizona, but Bochy doesn't think the injury is a big deal. It probably isn't, but it's a reminder that the veteran outfielder has been very injury-prone the last two seasons after being a bastion of health previously.

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

This was an annihilation. A few fun statistics of note from the 12-3 win: The Giants collected nine extra-base hits in the contest, with only Angel Pagan failing to pick up an extra-base knock among regular batters. Included in that barrage, four triples (two by Brandon Crawford). Seven players finished with multiple hits. For his part, Pence connected for a solo home run in the fifth inning, going back-to-back with Buster Posey. This season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .294/.364/.463 with 13 homers and 56 RBI over 374 at-bats.

Hunter Pence connected for a two-run homer in the first inning of Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Pence burned Adam Wainwright for a two-run shot with two outs in the bottom of the first inning. He wouldn't secure another hit in the game, finishing 1-for-4 at the dish. The dinger was his 12th of the season. In addition, Pence is slashing .296/.364/.472 and has driven in 52 runs over 335 at-bats.

Hunter Pence went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday as the Giants topped the Diamondbacks 5-3 in Arizona.

His two-run double in the seventh inning capped off the Giants scoring in the ballgame. Pence also drew a walk in the contest, raising his season slash to .294/.364/.466 to go with 11 homers and 49 RBI in 86 games.

Hunter Pence went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and scored four times in a big win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Pence has missed a lot of games this year due to injury but has played well when on the field. That is a common theme when good players get up into their thirties. Pence has a .293 batting average with 11 homers, 48 runs scored and 47 RBI in 317 at-bats.

Hunter Pence went 4-for-5 with two doubles and four runs scored in the Giants' 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Pence and Brandon Belt both reached base five times in the game while batting fifth and sixth for the Giants. Maybe the Giants probably would have had an easier time of it tonight if they weren't batting their third- and second-best hitters fifth and sixth, but at least they did eke out the 12-inning victory. Pence has seven hits the last two days, raising his average to .287.

Hunter Pence homered for the second consecutive game, but it wasn't enough for the Giants to overcome the Cubs on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

His solo shot with two outs in the seventh inning was the club's first hit against Jon Lester on the afternoon and pulled the Giants to within a run at 2-1, that's as close as they would come though. After struggling for weeks in his return from the disabled list, Pence's bat has shown signs of life over the last couple of days which is certainly a very welcomed sight for fantasy owners and Giants fans alike.

Hunter Pence went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

Pence hit the two-run dong off Cubs starter Mike Montgomery in the first inning. It was just his ninth homer overall and only his second since returning from a hamstring injury in late July. He's been able to rack up a few multi-hit games since mid-August, raising his overall line to .284/.353/.442 in 77 games total.

Hunter Pence (hamstring) will do some running prior to Sunday's game.

Hunter Pence (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Saturday.

Pence hasn't played since he left Thursday's game with right hamstring tightness, but it doesn't appear to be a major concern. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said it's realistic he could return Tuesday, but that Pence could push to play sooner.
