Hunter Pence diagnosed with infammation in his Achilles


The Giants have announced that Hunter Pence was diagnosed with inflammation in his right Achilles following an MRI on Monday. There is no structural damage and he’ll miss about a week.

That’s good news. A strain or something worse could’ve put him on the shelf way longer.

Pence only played in 52 games for the Giants last year and he was dearly missed. A healthy Hunter will be key to the Giants’ quest of continuing their every-other-year World Series pattern.
