Report: Hunter Pence traded to Giants

The San Francisco Giants have acquired outfielder Hunter Pence from the Philadelphia Phillies, reports CBS Sports' Jon Heyman on Twitter.

The 29-year-old Pence was traded to Philadelphia before the trade deadline last July to help the team in its playoff push, and he hit .324 as the Phillies won the NL East.

But this season, the team has fallen out of contention. Pence's numbers, though still solid, have also dropped. He is hitting .271 with 17 home runs.

Pence should help the Giants as they battle the Dodgers for the NL West title. The teams are tied atop the division, with the Diamondbacks 3.5 games back.

The Dodgers already struck a deal with the Phillies on Tuesday, landing Shane Victorino to help them improve their outfield. The Giants' acquisition of Pence should help them keep pace.
