Pence is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Padres, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems to be a routine day off for Pence, who went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday's matchup. The 34-year-old is slashing a steady .281/.340/.360 this season and leads the team with 10 RBI. Eduardo Nunez moves in as the starter in right field.

Pence (knee) was removed from Sunday's game against the Rockies because the game had become a blowout, not because of a setback with his knee, Andrew Baggarly of The Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pence returned to the lineup Sunday after receiving a day off Saturday to rest his knee, so there was understandably a bit of concern when manager Bruce Bochy removed him from the game in the seventh inning. It turns out the Giants' skipper simply wanted to get his veteran out of what had become a blowout in an effort not to re-aggravate his knee. The 34-year-old has become injury-prone over the last two seasons after being the model health prior to 2015, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury for now.

Pence (knee) is playing right field and batting third during Sunday's game against the Rockies, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pence sat out Saturday's game after tweaking his knee during Friday's contest. The Giants offense is off to a bit of a slow start, so Pence's quick return to the lineup is a welcomed sight.

Pence, who is out of Saturday's lineup, said his knee is fine and he plans to start Sunday's game against the Giants, the San Jose Mercury News' Andrew Baggarly reports.

EDGE Analysis

He appeared to twist his knee in Friday's game, and his absence from Saturday's lineup set off some alarm bells, but Pence insists that he is fine and won't need to miss time because of the issue. He is available off the bench Saturday with Gorkys Hernandez getting the start in right field and hitting eighth.

Pence (knee) is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rockies, the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman reports.

EDGE Analysis

He appeared to twist his knee while fielding a ball in Friday's game, and while he remained in the game, it was significant enough that he was not ready to get back in the action the next day. Chris Marrero and Gorkys Hernandez will occupy the outfield corners against right Antonio Senzatela. Pence should be considered day-to-day for now.

Pence appeared to have twisted his knee while fielding a ball in Friday's loss to the Rockies, but he stayed in the game and finished with a 1-for-4 batting line.

EDGE Analysis

Pence was going back to field a ball in the outfield and slipped on the slick grass at Coors Field, clearly favoring his knee when got back to his feet. It was a scary play for both the Giants -- who lost Madison Bumgarner to injury earlier in the day -- and his fantasy owners, considering the veteran outfielder's shaky injury history over the past two seasons. It appears that the 34-year-old old avoided any sort of serious injury, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him receive a precautionary day off Saturday.

Pence went 2-for-2 with three walks and a run against Arizona on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder is off to a strong start through nine games, hitting .324 with two doubles, a triple, a homer and a 5:7 BB:K. Pence came at a massive discount in drafts this year, and if he can stay healthy, he'll return plenty of value for fantasy owners.

Pence went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The homer snaps a string of three straight hitless performances, although he came in as a pinch hitter in Friday night's loss. The soon-to-be 34-year-old has missed significant time due to injuries each of the last two years, but when healthy, he is a consistent source of production across multiple categories. Just don't expect him to run much these days.

Pence is out of the lineup Friday in San Diego, the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jarrett Parker and Aaron Hill will occupy the outfield corners against righty Luis Perdomo. Pence is slashing .333/.400/.500 with one double, one triple, two runs, one RBI and two walks over 18 at-bats.

Pence went 3-for-6 with a double in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old struggled mightily during Cactus League action, but his 4-for-10 start to the regular season just goes to show that spring training stats for veterans hold little to no water. Pence is slotted third in manager Bruce Bochy's 2017 rendition of the batting order, putting him in a prime position to provide plenty of counting stats while hitting between Brandon Belt and Buster Posey. Health will be key for the veteran after missing upwards of 150 combined games over the past two seasons.
