Pence (wrist) smashed a grand slam in Friday's blowout win over the Phillies.

Pence's grand slam closed the book on Phillies' ace, Cole Hamels, with a bases loaded jack in the third inning. He returned to the lineup earlier than expected Tuesday, but Pence has been playing like he hasn't missed a game. He now has four hits and seven RBI over his last three games, providing a much needed spark for this San Francisco offense.

Pence (wrist) returned to the lineup against the Mets on Tuesday, batting cleanup and going 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI.

Pence's rehabilitation program went 0-to-100. News broke that he would be in the starting lineup just two days after reports were saying he would be out until after the All-Star break, skipping a rehab stint entirely. The Giants' seven-game losing streak may have had something to do with the acceleration of their star outfielder's comeback. In addition to the pair of RBI, Pence showed off his defensive prowess by making a sliding catch in foul territory and throwing out Curtis Granderson at home. He will resume his role as the Giants' everyday right fielder while batting in the heart of their lineup.

Pence (wrist) was activated prior to Tuesday's game and will start in right field and hit fourth against the Mets, Andrew Baggarly reports.

The Giants unveiled a lineup with Pence in the four hole earlier in the day, but they did not officially activate him until he made it through pregame activities. He should be the Giants' primary right fielder and will likely hit in the middle of the order going forward. Ryan Lollis was optioned as a corresponding move.

Pence (wrist) is listed in the Giants' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. However, the team will reportedly wait until after batting practice before officially activating him.

Typically, DL players listed in the starting lineup have already been activated, but it sounds like the Giants want to be sure Pence completes BP without issue before making a roster move. Manager Bruce Bochy suggested Monday that Pence could make it back before the All-Star break, but this still comes as a surprise. Pence has missed the last 30 games with a wrist injury.
