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.

Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

It's a regular day off. Ramiro Pena will handle second base.
Jun 26 - 1:10 PM

Joe Panik was the only Giants batter with multiple hits on Saturday, finishing 2-for-4 with a run scored.

Panik raised his batting average to .259 with the two singles. He has scored 45 runs to provide his owners with good value in that category, but he doesn't do enough in the other categories to make himself worthy of starting for a good fantasy team.

Joe Panik had a three-run triple against the Pirates in Thursday's win.

The ball to right-center really should have been cut off, but Gregory Polanco was playing him to pull in center and Matt Joyce wasn't nearly quick enough to get there from right. It was Panik's fifth triple of the year, and he's up to 36 RBI.
Jun 23 - 4:19 PM

Joe Panik only had one hit on Wednesday, but it was a big one as he smacked a two-run double to lift the Giants over the Pirates 7-6 on Wednesday.

Panik finished 1-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored. His key hit came in the sixth inning off Pirates' reliever Jared Hughes. Panik drove a double to left to score Ramiro Pena and Jarrett Parker, turning a one-run deficit into a one-run lead. Panik hasn't hit nearly as well as he did last year. His .259/.322/.409 slash line is essentially league-average across the board. That is not nearly as pretty as his .312/.378/.455 line from last year. While his rate stats may be down his counting stats are up. His seven homers are one behind his career high and he is on pace to blow past last year's totals in runs, RBI and steals as well.

Joe Panik hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning to lead the Giants to a 6-4 win over the Rays on Saturday.

With two outs and two on in a tie game, Panik ripped an Alex Colome pitch to right field for the game-winning blast. He had driven in a run earlier in the game when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, giving him four RBI on the night. The second baseman hasn't quite enjoyed the same success as he did in his All-Star season a year ago, but he's still hitting a respectable .263/.327/.421 with seven homers, 30 RBI and 39 runs scored on the year.
Jun 18 - 11:24 PM

Joe Panik drove in the tying run in the 10th inning and then scored the winning run on a Buster Posey single, finishing 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs.

The Giants only got seven hits in 10 innings, but came from behind to win in the extra frame. Panik hasn't played nearly as well this year as he did in his breakout season last year. The BABIP gods turned their smile to a frown and his batting average has paid the price. He remains a league average hitter but really isn't the type of middle infielder that starts for championship-caliber fantasy teams.
Jun 11 - 11:56 PM

Joe Panik is absent from the Giants' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a day off with the Rockies throwing lefty Chris Rusin. Kelby Tomlinson is filling in at second base.
May 29 - 1:48 PM

Joe Panik is not in Monday's lineup against the Padres.

He's likely just getting a breather. Kelby Tomlinson will fill in at second base and bat second against lefty Drew Pomeranz.
May 23 - 6:16 PM

Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a double as the Giants topped the Cubs 1-0 on Sunday night in San Francisco.

As a team, the Giants were only able to muster a total of four hits against Kyle Hendricks and company, with Panik the only player with multiple knocks. The two-hit attack raises his season slash to .261/.331/.439 to go with five homers, 19 RBI and three stolen bases.
May 22 - 10:52 PM

Joe Panik went 4-for-5 with a double in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Panik did not score a run or collect an RBI, but four hits are four hits. And he added a steal, too, just to mix things up a little. With the quartet slapped onto his triple-slash, he is now hitting .253/.325/.432 with five homers, 18 RBI and 21 runs scored over 146 at-bats.
May 20 - 12:49 AM

Joe Panik went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk versus the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Panik also homered Thursday, so he's now tied for the team lead with five. His average is still a modest .256, but as scarcely as he strikes out, it'll keep coming up.
May 14 - 12:59 AM

Joe Panik went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Panik feasted upon a Zack Greinke offering for a two-run homer in the fifth inning. It was his fourth long-ball of the season and pushed his RBI total to 14. Through his first 122 at-bats, Panik is hitting .246/.316/.426.
May 13 - 1:07 AM

Joe Panik (groin) went 1-for-3 plus a walk in his return to the Giants lineup on Friday.

Panik had been on the shelf since April 29 due to a groin injury. The Giants may proceed cautiously with him the next few days as to not push him too hard, so don't be surprised if he sits a game over the weekend. Panik is hitting .281/.346/.479 with three homers and 12 RBI in his first 25 games this season.
