2019 Fantasy Outlook
Pence has likely played his last game with the Giants but maintains he is not done playing baseball. Frankly, his numbers say otherwise. Pence has been traveling down the Dale Murphy path to retirement, as he's gone from being 20% better than the league average, offensively, to 40% below average in just two seasons. Those numbers do not turn around at age 36, which is how old Pence will be two weeks into the 2019 season. One path forward could be as a designated hitter in the American League -- that would both help keep him healthy and keep his diminishing defensive skills off the field. A more likely path forward is on the Bay Area media crew. He would be an ideal fit for a pre- and/or post-game broadcast crew. The game needs his personality to stick around, but his skills are in full decline. Read Past Outlooks
