Hunter Pence out 8 weeks with complete hamstring tear

Hunter Pence speech

The San Francisco Giants are probably used to all the breaks falling their way in even years. That’s not quite the case this time around.

According to a report by Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday, Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is expected to undergo surgery on a fully torn hamstring tendon and miss eight weeks of action.

Buster Posey’s good friend was batting .298/.375/.486 with seven home runs and 36 RBIs in his age-33 season. All is not lost though for the Giants, who currently are comfortably atop the NL West with a record of 34-22. While they may have to turn to right fielder by committee for the next two months as Pence recovers, the Giants have enough punch in their lineup to hopefully maintain their divisional perch at least until he returns.
