Pence went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two strikeouts Thursday against the Dodgers.

He's picked up three two-hit games since returning, but went hitless in the other two. It adds up to a decent start for Pence in his return from a forearm injury, and one that he'll have a great opportunity to build on as the Giants head to Coors Field for a weekend set.

Pence batted fifth and went 2-for-5 with his first home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Pence has hit the ground running since returning from a severe forearm injury he suffered in spring training. He has contributed 47 homers, 173 RBI, and 35 stolen bases over his last two seasons with the Giants, and should continue to provide similar production as long as he stays healthy.

Pence returned from the DL with a bang Saturday, going 2-for-3 with three runs scored in the 11-2 win over the Reds.

This was Pence's first game of the year and it was clear the Giants rallied behind their ring leader, driving him in all three times he was on-base. Look for Pence to continue to be productive as long as he can stay healthy.

Pence (forearm) will play Thursday and Friday for Triple-A Sacramento and is expected to remain with the team through its weekend series with Triple-A Albuquerque, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pence began his rehab assignment last week and has started to play full games after being limited to five inning appearances earlier in his stint with Sacramento. Baggarly noted that Pence's potential call-up to the Giants is day-to-day at this point, so there's a chance he gets called up before the end of Sacramento's series in Albuquerque.

Pence (forearm) went 1-for-4 with a home run in a rehab game with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

The home run was just Pence's second hit in four rehab games, but more importantly, he was able to play for the fourth time in five days and played a full nine innings Tuesday night. Pence is expected to get a day off Wednesday, according to CSN's Andrew Baggarly, but it appears he could join the big club at some point in the next few days.

Pence (forearm) made it out of Friday's rehab game with Triple-A Sacramento and he will play again Saturday and Monday, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

Pence will get an off day Sunday, but it seems like everything is starting to progress nicely for the star outfielder. He only played five innings Friday but the plan is to work him up to playing full games before he joins the Giants, which seems like it could happen sometime next week if everything goes according to plan.

Pence (forearm) could begin a rehab assignment after taking batting practice Thursday, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

Pence has resumed hitting since Sunday and he appears to be progressing well as manager Bruce Bochy indicated he's nearing the next step in his rehab process. Once he begins a rehab assignment, the outfielder could be just about a week away from returning to the big league club, but a clearer timetable should become available when an official next step is determined.
