Joe Panik finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Friday's loss against the Marlins.

Panik has hit safely in seven consecutive games, going 10-for-30 (.333) with five runs scored, three doubles, a triple and two RBI. He has rebounded nicely after a rough stretch in late May and early June to push his slash line back to .280/.340/.413.
Jul 8 - 5:22 AM

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

The homer was his fifth of the year, three of which have come since June 8. That's a theme with the second baseman -- after a strong April and an abysmal May, Panik is now hitting .371 in June with the three homers, nine RBI and nine runs scored. The hot stretch has his line up to a much more palatable .275/.338/.414 overall.
Jun 23 - 1:26 AM

Joe Panik went 3-for-5 in Saturday's lopsided loss to the Rockies at Coors Field.

All three hits were singles and none of them helped put any runs on the scoreboard. Panik has been a steady presence near the top of the Giants' batting order all season even though his stats don't make fantasy owners drool. He is batting .274/.341/.412 with four homers, 25 runs, 20 RBI and two steals in 255 plate appearances.

Joe Panik finished 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a solo home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 10-8 loss in Colorado.

Panik has been on fire lately, going 10-for-20 (.500) with three doubles, two homers and four RBI across the past five games. Overall for the month of June he is hitting .385 (15-for-39) with five doubles, two homers and six RBI to raise his average from .242 to .267.

Joe Panik (thumb) went 2-for-4 in his return to the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday.

Panik missed nearly a full week with a sprained left thumb, but he managed to avoid the disabled list and should be fine moving forward. The second baseman is batting .259/.329/.382 in 59 games this season for San Francisco.
Jun 15 - 8:38 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Joe Panik (thumb) will return to the starting lineup Wednesday.

Panik hasn't appeared in a game since last Thursday due to a sprained left thumb, but he's made good progress on the side. Aaron Hill is at second base for the Giants on Tuesday night against the Royals.
Jun 13 - 7:47 PM

Joe Panik (thumb) remains out of the Giants' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Panik had been aiming to return for Tuesday night's game against the Royals, but his sprained left thumb still isn't fully healed. Aaron Hill is starting at second base and batting seventh versus Royals left-hander Jason Vargas.
Jun 13 - 6:10 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Joe Panik (thumb) will remain sidelined until Tuesday.

Panik suffered a sprained left thumb on Thursday in Milwaukee, though it's been described as mild. Aaron Hill is starting at second base again on Saturday against the Twins.
Jun 10 - 2:39 PM

Updating an earlier report, Joe Panik is dealing with a sprained left thumb.

That's his non-throwing hand. The sprain has been described as mild but Panik will still need a few days to heal up. Aaron Hill started in his place Friday night against Minnesota and should continue to see time there during Panik's absence.
Jun 10 - 12:07 AM

Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup Friday against the Twins.

He's just getting a maintenance day after making eight consecutive starts. Aaron Hill will take over at second base and bat seventh against Twins right-hander Ervin Santana.
Jun 9 - 6:53 PM

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with homer and a sac fly Thursday as the Giants topped the Brewers 9-5 in 10 innings.

Panik came into the day with a .250/.322/.363 line and two homers in 204 at-bats, but he was the Giants' No. 3 hitter with Buster Posey getting the day off and he made Posey proud with maybe his best game of the year. He'll probably return to the seventh spot in the order on Friday.
Jun 8 - 6:51 PM

Joe Panik went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss and is 0-for-13 in his last three games.

Panik had a great first week of the season, but in his last 150 at-bats, he's hitting .227 with a .286 OBP. He's never been one for homers or steals, so he has to hit for average to contribute much in NL-only leagues. It's not happening right now.
May 25 - 5:28 PM

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.
May 22 - 11:30 PM

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.
