Hunter nominates Pence for a joint assignment

Legendary outfielder Hunter Pence has been named for the assignment by the San Francisco Giants.

Pence, 37, is hitting just .096 with two home runs and six RBI on 52 seats after rejoining the Giants this season.

He revived his career with the Texas Rangers last season when he hit 297 with 18 home runs and 59 RBIs and was selected as an American League All-Star.

He was part of two World Series winning Giants in 2012 and ’14. He hit .444 with a home run and five RBIs in a seven-match World Series win over the Kansa City Royals.

The four-time All-Star has a career average of .279 with 244 home runs and 942 RBI over 1470 games, eight of which include the Giants. He has also played for the Houston Astros, Philadelphia Phillies and Rangers.

In other moves Sunday, the Giants restored right-hander Sam Sam Conrod from the 10-day injured list and later acquired fielder Daniel Robertson from the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named. Robertson was assigned to the Giants’ alternative training site.
