Injury-Prone Pence Still Productive Offensive Force
Pence played in only 52 games in 2015 after starting the season on the disabled list because of a fractured left forearm. He also suffered a hamstring injury earlier this season that forced him to miss time.
Prior to the injury, Pence hit .273 with eight home runs and 41 RBI in 2016 after hitting .275 with nine home runs and 40 RBI last year.
When healthy, Pence is an important part of the San Francisco lineup. He is a three-time All-Star and boasted seven straight years with at least 20 home runs before his injury-plagued 2015. Pence also has two seasons with a batting average above .300 and six seasons with double-digit stolen bases on his resume.
Still, the Giants are on the short list of National League teams with realistic World Series aspirations, and they could use a healthy Pence anchoring the lineup on a daily basis down the stretch.
