Pence (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Braves, Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected Pence is out of Sunday's contest and will be replaced by Jarrett Parker in right field. At this point in time, he's still on track to return Tuesday when the Giants host the Diamondbacks.

Pence (hamstring) is considered likely to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Pence reported improvement with his ailing hamstring Saturday, he is being held out of the lineup and it sounds like he will remain out for Sunday's series finale. Pence will need to continue to progress to hit Tuesday's target return date, but Pence and the team seem confident that four full days of rest -- the Giants are off Monday -- will be sufficient.

Pence is dealing with right hamstring tightness and is considered day-to-day, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Further details regarding Pence's status were not provided, but the setback forced an early exit from the Giants' Thursday night contest. The Giants figures to release an update on Pence's health at some point Friday; otherwise the team's starting lineup will do the same.

Pence went 2-for-4 with a double in Friday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Pence appears to have found his stroke after struggling mightily upon his return from the disabled list. He has recorded three multi-hit games with a homer and four RBI over his last six games. If he was dropped during his injury or while he was slumping, now would be the time to take a look at the veteran slugger.

Pence went 2-for-5 with a solo-homer in Sunday's 8-7 loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Pence was moved up to fourth in the order with Buster Posey (back) getting scratched prior to Sunday's game. He responded with his first home run since returning from the disabled list July 30. Pence has been one of San Francisco's least-productive hitters since returning from a serious hamstring injury, so this kind of game could be a sign that he is finally breaking out of the prolonged slump.

Pence has been moved down to seventh in the batting order for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Pence has struggled since coming back from the disabled list July 30, hitting just .200 with no homers and one RBI over that span. What is more telling is the fact that he is striking out an astounding 34.9% over that span. While the Giants' recent skid isn't entirely his fault, that kind of production in the middle of a lineup can cripple an offense, justifying the change in batting order. The 33-year-old vet will probably snap out of the funk sooner rather than later, but it would be best to let him figure it out on your bench in favor of a hotter bat.

Hence, who is not in Sunday's starting lineup, was sent to the hospital for X-rays on Saturday night, freelance writer Andrew Baggarly reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hence caught a tough break when he fouled a ball off his face Saturday, and the team was concerned enough to send the outfielder for further testing. Fortunately, no fractures were found, and he'll presumably be OK to return to the lineup next week when the swelling subsides.
