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.
