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.

Joe Panik went 1-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

Panik singled in the third before coming around to score and was intentionally walked in a two-run seventh before later reaching on an error in a five-run eighth. The 25-year-old struggled miserably after returning from his concussion late last month, but he has shown some signs of progress in recent days by hitting .333 (10-for-30) with four doubles.

Joe Panik went 3-for-3 with a walk and scored two runs in a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

Two of his hits were doubles. He is batting .245/.317/.379 with seven homers, 38 RBI, 50 runs and five steals in 84 games. Those are very disappointing stats for the 25-year-old considering he broke out with a .312/.378/.455 slash line last year.

Giants activated 2B Joe Panik from the 7-day disabled list.

He's back after missing a month with a concussion. Panik will start at second base and bat third Thursday against Washington. Grant Green, who filled in at second during Panik's absence, has been designated for assignment. Panik carries a .256 average over 273 at-bats this season.

Jul 28 - 3:54 PM

Joe Panik (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Jul 25 - 8:13 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that Joe Panik (concussion) has "turned a corner" in his recovery.

Jul 24 - 11:39 AM

Joe Panik (concussion) was checked by a doctor on Saturday and has been cleared to continue baseball work.

Jul 23 - 2:39 PM

Joe Panik (concussion) didn't play in a scheduled rehab game Thursday because he "didn't feel good," according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

Bochy didn't specifically say that it was a setback with Panik's concussion symptoms, but it's safe to say that that's the case. At this point it's unclear when the second baseman will resume his rehab assignment. He's been out of commission since late June.
