Joe Panik (groin) added treadmill jogging and agility drills to his workout Tuesday.

It's a strong signal that he's close to returning to the Giants' starting lineup, and Panik could even pinch-hit on Tuesday night. The second baseman has been out since last Friday because of a minor groin injury.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that Joe Panik (groin) won't be ready to return to the Giants lineup until Tuesday at the earliest.

Panik suffered a groin injury during the ninth inning of Friday's game and sat out the remainder of the weekend. It sounds as though he'll need at least one more day before he's ready to give it a go, but it doesn't appear as a trip to the disabled list will be necessary. The Giants will make a roster move on Monday to get an extra hitter in the mix with Panik and Angel Pagan both nursing minor injuries.

Apr 29 - 11:18 PM

Joe Panik went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in Saturday's win over the Marlins, giving him at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games.

Panik frustrated Jose Fernandez all night, singling in the first inning and drawing a walk in the third. Even his one out came on a liner to center field. The 25-year-old is now hitting .257/.321/.457 and benefits from hitting second in a deep Giants lineup.
Apr 24 - 1:45 AM

Joe Panik belted his second home run of the season, accounting for all of the Giants offense in Sunday night's loss to the Dodgers.

His solo shot off Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda in the third inning was the first run that the right-hander has surrendered all year. Panik also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 to raise his season slash to .261/.314/.478 to go along with two homers and nine RBI.
Apr 17 - 10:54 PM

Joe Panik went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday night's victory over the Dodgers.

Panik kicked off the scoring on Saturday with a single up the middle. It marked his eighth RBI of the season, and his two-hit evening raised his slash line to .256/.298/.419. Although that's far below his .312/.378/.455 mark he set a year ago, it's important to remember that early-season batted-ball data can skew stats in a big way. He's currently suffering from a .235 BABIP and should see his luck change as the season progresses.
Apr 17 - 1:10 AM

Joe Panik (hip) returned to the Giants lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 with a run scored in a loss to the Dodgers.

Panik sat out Thursday's game as a precautionary measure after banging his hip while diving for a ground ball on Wednesday. He's off to a slow start at the plate in 2016, slashing .237/.286/.421 with one homer and seven RBI.
