Bruce Bochy addressed the media prior to the Giants' Wednesday evening game in Houston and provided updates on a trio of injured players.
Hunter Pence, who is recovering from a fractured forearm suffered when he was hit by a pitch on March 5, is getting to the point where he will be evaluated daily.
Pence, who took Wednesday off due to the Grizzlies' early game, has two hits in 12 at-bats (.167) with one home run and three RBI over four games in his Triple-A rehab stint.
Matt Cain, who is recovering from a strained flexor tendon in his throwing elbow, took a big step on Tuesday when he threw a 20-pitch bullpen session.
Everything went well, according to the team, and he is expected to throw off a mound again on Friday.
Jake Peavy, who is recovering from a lower back injury, threw 50 pitches off a mound on Tuesday and will follow up with a light mound session on Thursday.
He's getting close to pitching at extended spring training, according to the team.
