Hunter Pence will be sidelined 6-8 weeks after an X-ray confirmed he has a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm.
Pence suffered the break when he was hit by a pitch just above his wrist during a Cactus League game Thursday. With a 6-8 week timetable, you would have to figure there's a good chance he'll be sidelined for the entire month of April. Pence has played in a major league-leading 383 consecutive games, as he's yet to miss a game since joining the Giants. Obviously that streak will come to an end. Gregor Blanco should be in line to see the bulk of the at-bats during Pence's absence. Mar 5 - 7:07 PM

Hunter Pence left Thursday's Cactus League game after he was hit in the hand by a pitch.

Pence walked down to first base initially before leaving the game. The Giants should pass along an update soon, but obviously they can't afford to lose him from the middle of their lineup. Pence has appeared in all 162 games in back-to-back seasons.

Hunter Pence launched a two-run homer and reached base four times in Tuesday's World Series Game 1 win over the Royals.

The Giants first dented the scoreboard on Pablo Sandoval's first-inning double, but Pence provided the big blow with a laser to center field that cleared the wall for a two-run shot. He later added a double and also drew a pair of walks. Every player in the Giants' lineup had a hit save for Travis Ishikawa, who was lifted after just one at-bat.

Hunter Pence is not in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.

That's newsworthy due to the fact that Pence hasn't missed a ballgame since the 2012 season. You'd have to imagine Bruce Bochy will get him a pinch-hit appearance to keep his consecutive game streak alive, which currently sits at 381 games.

Hunter Pence went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored as the Giants beat the Rockies 3-0 on Tuesday.

This was one of fantasy baseball's best matchups of the evening, and it cashed. Pence came into the game 18-for-37 with four round-trippers and three doubles in his last 10 games against Colorado, and he'd gone 6-for-21 in his career with two homers and two doubles versus Rockies' starter Jorge De La Rosa. The 31-year-old is slashing .286/.339/.468 and is on pace for 22 homers, 72 RBI, 110 runs and 14 steals.
