Hunter Pence is unlikely to make it back by May 1

The prevailing wisdom was that Hunter Pence was likely to miss all of April due to his fractured forearm, but that he’d be back by around the first of May.

Well, nope: Bruce Bochy talked about his return schedule yesterday, and that schedule makes it appear unlikely that he’ll be back by then. He still has yet to hit off a tee and take soft-toss batting practice and stuff, and he must do that before seeing live pitching. That’s not the sort of thing you can do in a week or so.
