Giants' Hunter Pence will move to left field in 2018
According to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea, San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence will move from right to left field for the upcoming 2018 season.
Bruce Bochy has reportedly told Pence of the move. This comes after trading for Andrew McCutchen, who will make a move of his own from centerfield to right field in his new home. Gorkys Hernandez or Steven Duggar are possibilities in center, but the team's entertaining the idea of adding Jarrod Dyson or Lorenzo Cain in free agency. Management has said that they'd like Duggar to at least start in the minors this season.
In his time with the Giants, Pence hasn't played a single inning in left field. In fact, he's only played a single inning in center, compared to more than 5,000 innings in right.
