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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
