  • Giants placed OF Hunter Pence on the 10-day disabled list with a right thumb sprain.<p><b>Advice</b>: Mac Williamson was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the active roster. Perhaps the thumb injury played a role in the 35-year-old outfielder's early-season struggles, at least we'd like to hope so, as he was hitting just .172/.197/.190 with no homers, three RBI and an atrocious 22/2 K/BB ratio in his first 61 plate appearances.</p>

  • Updating an earlier report, Hunter Pence will sit out Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks due to a sore right thumb.<p><b>Advice</b>: The injury might explain his recent struggles. With Jeff Samardzija (pectoral) set to return Friday, the Giants could clear a roster spot by placing Pence on the disabled list. Pence hasn't looked right this year, batting just .172 with 22 strikeouts in 58 at-bats.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/hankschulman/status/987118423334203392">Henry Schulman on Twitter</a></p>

  • Hunter Pence is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.<p><b>Advice</b>: Pence is in the midst of a 3-for-29 dry spell and could probably use a night off to clear his head. Gregor Blanco will draw the start in left field and bat leadoff against D'Backs hurler Zack Greinke.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/PavlovicNBCS/status/987099216680898561">Alex Pavlovic on Twitter</a></p>
