Fantasy Baseball: Week 9 Stock Up, Stock Down

On the Fall: Hunter Pence, OF SF

Hunter Pence was off to a pretty decent 2016 season until he was put on the DL for a hamstring problem. Pence will undergo surgery to repair his hamstring.

Pence was batting .298 with 7 home runs and 36 RBI before his injury. Father time might be catching up to this 33-year-old outfielder though. Pence played only 52 games all of last year and has played 50 this year. The Giants are optimistic he will return before the end of the season but he will be out for an extended period.

Pence is an above-average fantasy outfielder when healthy but that’s been his Achilles Heel over the past two seasons. Drop him now if you need an outfielder and don’t have room on the disabled list,ย or stash him away and hope he is healthy enough to propel you in playoffs.

I have been a passionate sports fan my whole life. It started from when my parents would take me every year to Yankee Stadium for Old Timer's Day. I enjoy all sports but baseball is my favorite. I am a proud father of a beautiful little girl and manager at AT&T.
