According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, Hunter Pence is on his way to Cincinnati to join the big league club. He won’t be activated until tomorrow (Saturday).

Pence, 32, was recovering from a fractured left forearm that occurred during Spring Training. He rehabbed with Triple-A Sacramento for a week after missing the first month and a half of the season.

In 2014, Pence slashed .277/.332/.445 with 20 home runs, 123 wRC+, and a 4.6 fWAR. He helped the Giants win their third World Series in five seasons.

The corresponding move will likely be either demoting Hector Sanchez or Andrew Susac.
