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

Panik had to briefly halt his minor league rehab assignment last week, but he's back on track now and could join the Giants by the end of the week if all goes well. The 25-year-old has been out since June 27 due to concussion symptoms.

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

Panik had a setback with his concussion symptoms just a couple days ago but apparently has made lots of recent progress. He's going to remain out of the lineup while on his rehab assignment for a few more days but has been cleared to resume baseball activities.
Jul 24 - 11:39 AM

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

He's going to remain out of the lineup at Triple-A for another couple of days, but it sounds as though he is progressing toward a return to the field. Panik has been on the sidelines since late June due to his concussion symptoms.
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.
Jul 22 - 5:34 PM

Joe Panik (head) played seven innings of second base Wednesday night at Triple-A Sacramento.

He also doubled and hit three pop-ups, finishing 1-for-4 in Sacramento's defeat of the Marlins' Triple-A affiliate from New Orleans. Panik remains on track to be activated from the concussion disabled list ahead of Friday night's series opener at Yankee Stadium. He has been on the shelf since June 29.
Jul 21 - 7:51 AM

Joe Panik (concussion) went 0-for-2 with a walk and played five innings of second base Tuesday in his first rehab game with Triple-A Sacramento.

Panik was supposed to begin his rehab assignment Monday, but that game got rained out. He is still hoping to be activated for Friday's series opener against the Yankees.
Jul 19 - 7:37 PM

Joe Panik (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

He's in the clear after passing his concussion test on Friday. Panik hopes to be activated in time for Friday's series opener against the Yankees. The 25-year-old was hitting .256 before his concussion.
Jul 16 - 7:40 PM

Joe Panik passed a concussion test on Friday.

Great news. The Giants will now submit the paperwork in order to get him cleared for a minor league rehab assignment, which could begin as soon as Sunday. Grant Green and Ramiro Pena will continue to fill in at second base for now.
Jul 15 - 7:30 PM

Joe Panik (concussion) could begin a rehab assignment on Sunday.

The expectation is that he'll be back next weekend when the Giants play in New York. Panik passed his initial concussion tests after getting hit in the head by a ball last month but was placed on the disabled list when his concussion symptoms returned about two weeks later. Grant Green and Ramiro Pena have been filling in at second base.
Jul 14 - 10:50 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Joe Panik (concussion) won't be back before the All-Star break.

Panik was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list June 29 and still hasn't made much progress. The hope is he'll be ready soon after the break, but there's no way of crafting an exact timetable at this point.
Jul 4 - 2:52 PM

Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

While Panik passed his concussion tests three days running after being hit in the head with a ball in mid-June, the symptoms came back to the point where the Giants were forced to sit him on Tuesday. Until he is ready to return, expect Ramiro Pena to receive increased at-bats.
Jun 29 - 7:15 PM

Joe Panik was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Tuesday due to concussion-like symptoms.

Panik was hit in the head 10 days ago and passed his concussion tests on three consecutive days, but these things tend to linger. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Giants give him a couple of days off. Ramiro Pena will start in his place and bat seventh against Kendall Graveman and the A's.
Jun 28 - 8:01 PM

Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

It's a regular day off. Ramiro Pena will handle second base.
