Joe Panik went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the Giants' defeat of the Cubs on Monday.
Panik scored the first run of the night with his solo shot off Cubs starter John Lackey in the top of the first inning, and he plated the Giants' second run with an RBI double off Lackey in the top of the second. Panik also reached on a hit-by-pitch in the fourth and he doubled again in the top of the sixth. The second baseman lifted his season OPS from .641 to .698 with the offensive outburst.

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Saturday's loss against the Rockies.

Panik has three multi-hit efforts over his past four outings to push his season average to .333. He has seven walks and just seven strikeouts for a solid BB:K ratio while posting a respectable .827 OPS. If the Giants ever consider scooting him up in the order he might be worth a look in some mixed fantasy formats.

Joe Panik went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Rockies on Friday.

It's worth wondering if the Giants would have won tonight if they had either Panik or Eduardo Nunez (2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base) leading off instead of the struggling Denard Span (1-for-5). Panik is hitting .321/.393/.434 from the bottom of the San Francisco order. He could have some mixed-league value if he's ever moved up.

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 and singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th as the Giants edged the Royals 2-1 on Tuesday.

With a .319/.389/.447 line in 47 at-bats, Panik has been the Giants' second-best hitter to date, and it's time the club considers hitting him leadoff and dropping Denard Span to the bottom of the order. That might seem like an overreaction to 50 plate appearances, but Span just isn't hitting the ball with any authority whatsoever.
Apr 19 - 12:55 AM

Joe Panik is back in the Giants' lineup Monday.

Panik got the day off on Sunday, with Aaron Hill playing second base. The Giants also have the scuffling Jarrett Parker back in the lineup Monday against right-hander Taijuan Walker.
Apr 10 - 1:17 PM

Joe Panik is absent from the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Aaron Hill will be at second base against southpaw Clayton Richard. The Giants also have Chris Marrero in left field.
Apr 9 - 1:36 PM

Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Diamondbacks.

Panik started the first three games of the season and is just getting a breather on Thursday. Aaron Hill will draw the start at second base and bat eighth against Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray. Panik is off to a good start with five hits in his first 11 at-bats.
Apr 6 - 7:01 PM

Joe Panik went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Panik ceased being of any real interest in mixed leagues when the Giants decided to stick him at the bottom of the order and hit Brandon Belt second, but he's still a good bet to hit better than last year and be an asset in NL-only leagues.
Apr 5 - 1:28 AM

Joe Panik is starting at second base and batting eighth for the Giants in Sunday's opener against the Diamondbacks.

Panik is a good bounce-back candidate this season, especially from a batting average perspective, but obviously this isn't an ideal spot in the order. The Giants' full lineup looks like this: Denard Span CF, Brandon Belt 1B, Hunter Pence RF, Buster Posey C, Brandon Crawford SS, Eduardo Nunez 3B, Jarrett Parker LF, Panik 2B, Madison Bumgarner P.
Apr 2 - 3:01 PM

X-rays on Joe Panik's right scapula came back negative.

Panik was plunked by a pitch Monday, but he merely has a bruise. The Giants' second baseman is a nice bounce-back candidate in 2017.
Mar 27 - 7:26 PM

Joe Panik revealed Monday that his eyesight never returned to normal last season after he suffered a concussion on June 18 following a beaning.

Panik was batting .263/.327/.421 at the time of the concussion but then hit just .214/.304/.335 the rest of the way. He's been performing eye exercises this offseason as recommended by specialists and says he can now see fine and has no lingering concussion symptoms. Panik finished 2016 with a .239 average after entering the year with a career .309 mark. He's a good bet to bounce back in the average department in 2017.
Feb 13 - 7:06 PM

Joe Panik smacked a walk-off, RBI double in the bottom of the 13th inning Monday in the Giants' NLDS Game 3 victory.

Panik was the only guy on either team to reach base five times in the five-plus hour game, as he also notched a couple singles and drew two walks. The big blow came off of Mike Montgomery after Brandon Crawford had led off the frame with a double of his own. Panik has now reached base eight times in the first three games of the series. It will be John Lackey versus Matt Moore in Game 4 as the Giants look to stave off elimination again.

Joe Panik is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

Just a typical day off for Panik. Kelby Tomlinson is manning second base and hitting eighth in his place.

Joe Panik crushed a pair of home runs and drove home four as the Giants routed the Braves 13-4 in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

Panik gave the Giants the lead with a solo shot off of Braves starter Aaron Blair in the second inning, then increased that advantage with a towering two-run drive his next trip to the plate. He finished the day 3-for-4 and is now slashing .251/.329/.407 with 10 long balls and 52 RBI on the season.

Joe Panik went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

Panik connected for a two-run blast off Ross Stripling in the fourth inning. The dinger was his eighth of the season. In addition, the 25-year-old second baseman is slashing .248/.327/.389 and has driven in 46 runs over 355 at-bats.
