Pence is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Indians, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pence is the midst of a rough slump at the plate, in which he's hitting .145 over 55 at-bats since the beginning of the month, but he gets a chance to clear his head Wednesday. Gorkys Hernandez will take his spot in the lineup, starting in right field and batting eighth.

Pence's lone hit in four plate appearances was a solo home run in a loss to Detroit on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran appeared to be getting off to a slow start in July (0-for-8) after going a hot month of June (.310/.362/.425), but a homer is the best remedy for quashing a potential cold stretch. As previously mentioned, Pence is due for some positive correction in the power department, setting him up for a useful second half of the season as long as he stays away from the disabled list.

Pence went 3-for-4 with a season-high five RBI in Friday's 13-5 win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder didn't record an extra-base hit, but his placement behind the hot bats of Denard Span and Joe Panik resulted in a parade of RBI. A slow start coupled with injury woes derailed Pence's fantasy value, but he has quietly put together a useful month of at-bats (.310 with two home runs and 14 RBI). The 34-year-old's 33.0 percent hard contact rate is above his career average, but an unusually low 8.9 HR/FB ratio is a sign that a power surge could be on the way for Pence. Don't write him off quite yet.

Pence is out of the lineup Wednesday, NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Giants giving most of their regulars the day off following a 14-inning game against the Rockies on Tuesday, Pence will hit the bench in favor of Austin Slater in right field. Ryder Jones gets the nod in left while Pence is likely to be back in the lineup for Friday's series opener in Pittsburgh.

Pence tallied three hits in hive plate appearances Monday, scoring twice in a win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has picked things up at the plate over his last 15 games, batting .375 (21-for-56) with six extra-base hits and seven RBI over that span. With the Giants falling well out of contention this season, it wouldn't be surprising to hear Pence's name mentioned around he trade deadline. A move to almost any contender would certainly be a boost to the 34-year-old's value considering how difficult it is to provide power in his current home ballpark.

Pence went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season in Wednesday's extra- inning loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

After a slow start following his stint on the disabled list, Pence has begun to look like his former self, batting .351 (13-for-37) with five extra-base hits and seven RBI over his previous 10 contests. The 34-year-old's slash line still sits at .251/.294/.364 through 54 games, but his recent hot stretch gives fantasy owners hope that he can salvage what was looking like an injury-plagued and disappointing season.

EDGE Analysis

With five hits during the first three games of the team's series in Colorado, Pence has increased his season average by 12 points, up to .247 on the year. Despite the production, he'll receive a day of rest Sunday after starting each of the club's past eight ballgames. Gorkys Hernandez starts in right field.

Pence broke out of his slump in a big way Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a trio of doubles, two RBI and three runs scored in a 13-8 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder had just three hits (all singles) in 22 at-bats since returning from the disabled list June 4, but he was finally able to break through at the plate against Nik Turley. We would like to see more consistency against tougher competition going forward, but Sunday was a step in the right direction. Fantasy owners in shallower leagues may have moved on from the veteran after a slow and injury-plagued start to the season, but Pence's batted ball profile shows that he is still hitting the ball with authority (55.1 percent medium contact and 33.1 percent hard contact), so there may be better days ahead for the 34-year-old.
