Rotowire: Mar 5 / 4:14p ET
News: Pence (forearm) has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the left ulna and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: X-rays confirmed the Giants' fears; Pence did indeed suffer a fractured forearm as a result of being hit by a pitch during Thursday's Cactus League game. He will be fitted with a cast, and while it sounds like he could still make it back before the end of April, everything will depend on how quickly he progresses in the weeks ahead. Gregor Blanco and Juan C. Perez are the top in-house candidates to replace Pence in right, though the team could also go outside the organization to find a fill-in.

News: The Giants fear that Pence has a broken left forearm, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Pence's official timetable will likely become more clear once the X-rays come back, but it's believed the exam will confirm the break as a result of a hit by pitch Thursday. Look for the team to provide an update in the near future.

News: Pence broke his left forearm and will be sidelined six to eight weeks after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning of the San Francisco Giants' 8-6 win over a Chicago Cubs split-squad on Thursday.
Impact: X-rays showed Pence has a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm. One of the clubhouse leaders for the World Series champions, the quirky Pence had played in all 162 games for the Giants the past two seasons. He hit .277 with 20 homers and 74 RBIs last year. He was hit by a pitch from the Cubs' Corey Black and went to first base before being removed from the game.
