2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: HUNTER PENCE STILL DEALING WITH SIDE/OBLIQUE ISSUES

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy set off some mild alarms concerning outfielder Hunter Pence on Friday when he admitted the veteran had to undergo treatment for "pain" in his side recently.  While previously known as one of the most dependable and durable players in the game for years, Pence has earned somewhat of an injury-prone label the last two season as he dealt with a broken forearm and oblique/side issues.  Now 34 and clearly on the backside of his career, the fact Pence is feeling discomfort in his side/oblique is already concerning.  While Pence doesn't run much anymore, he proved in 2016 that he can still be a very effective hitter by smacking 13 home runs in just 395 at-bats to go with a .289 average.  Still this should be a reminder that Pence is no longer young and that he can be graded only as an outfielder 3 for 2017 fantasy baseball.
