According to ESPN Stats & Info, Panik became the first player since Adam Kennedy (with the 2009 A's) to have at least five hits and not score a run or drive in a runner.

Joe Panik finished 4-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in Friday's easy win against the Brewers.

Panik has only played in 46 games in his young career but already has two four-hit games under his belt. He has had a strong showing since making his major league debut on June 21, batting .312/.359/.376 with one home run and 13 RBI.

Joe Panik went 4-for-5 with a three-run home run on Friday.

The home run off of Doug Fister was Panik's first career home run and it helped blow the game open for the Giants on their way to a 10-3 win. He also committed an error in the contest, but we'll let that pass for the younger. In 126 ABs, the twenty-four year old is hitting .316/.344/.345.

Joe Panik (finger) is back in the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Cubs.

Panik missed a couple of games after dislocating his pinkie finger on a slide into second base Sunday. The 23-year-old rookie is batting .282/.336/.333 this season.

Joe Panik (finger) is hoping to play Wednesday.

Panik made an early exit Sunday after suffering a dislocated pinkie finger on a slide into second base and is sitting out Tuesday night. Joaquin Arias will get the start at second base in Chicago.
Aug 19 - 5:01 PM

Joe Panik (finger) is listed as day-to-day after X-rays came back negative on Sunday.

Panik was forced to leave Sunday's game in the eighth inning after suffering a dislocated pinkie finger while sliding into second base. He'll be able to return to the Giants as soon as he is able to tolerate the pain, which is expected to be in a day or two.
Aug 17 - 8:07 PM

Joe Panik is heading for X-rays after suffering a dislocated pinkie finger in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

Panik sustained the injury sliding into second base in the eighth inning. He was replaced by Joaquin Arias who would stand to see extra time at second base should Panik require a trip to the disabled list. The Giants should provide an update on his status shortly.
Aug 17 - 7:24 PM

Joe Panik (ankle) appeared as a pinch-hitter in Friday's loss to the Giants, singling in his lone at bat.

Panik had been sidelined since Tuesday due to a sprained right ankle sustained in Tuesday's contest. With the arrival of Dan Uggla, it's unclear at the moment just how playing time will shake out at second base, but his already minimal fantasy value is sure to take a hit.
Jul 26 - 4:35 AM

Joe Panik left Tuesday's game versus the Phillies with a sprained right ankle.

He grounded out in his lone plate appearance before exiting. The Giants should update Panik's status after the game. He was replaced at second base by Ehire Adrianza.
Jul 22 - 8:12 PM

Joe Panik finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

Panik had an RBI double in the third inning. The second baseman has multi-hit games in three of his last six starts, pulling his average up to .257 after a rough first week in the big leagues. Remarkably, his two runs scored were his first in 12 games since being promoted.
Jul 6 - 11:00 PM

Joe Panik had a rough day at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Reds, going hitless in three at-bats.

The rookie second baseman has struggled since his promotion, slashing a meager .174/.240/.217 in his first 23 at-bats. He's likely to continue getting playing time at second base, but should be irrelevant outside of NL-only formats.
Jun 29 - 7:48 PM

Joe Panik finished 2-for-4 with an RBI double in his first major league start on Sunday.

Panik kept his cool in his first major league start -- it wasn't his first game after he walked as a pinch hitter on Saturday -- slapping a single in the fifth inning before lashing his run-scoring double in the ninth. The second baseman will likely continue to show doubles power with little more, and can be forgotten about outside of NL-only leagues.

Giants purchased the contract of INF Joe Panik from Triple-A Fresno.

Panik, the 29th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft, has registered a promising .321/.382/.447 batting line in 74 games this season at the Triple-A level. He could see regular playing time at second base for San Francisco and may be worth a try in NL-only fantasy leagues. Panik doesn't have enough speed or power to carry significant value in standard mixed formats.
Jun 21 - 7:00 PM

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants are calling up prospect infielder Joe Panik.

The Giants have yet to make an official announcement. Panik, a first-round pick from 2011, is batting .321/.382/.447 with five home runs and 45 RBI over 74 games this season in Triple-A. The opportunity is there for playing time at second base as the Giants consider their options before July 31, so the 23-year-old should be worth owning in NL-only leagues.
Jun 21 - 2:30 PM

Giants infield prospect Joe Panik went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and a walk for Triple-A Fresno on Thursday.

After playing shortstop for the first 10 games of the season, Panik has played second base during every game in which he played the field. He has hit well over his last 25 games, putting up a .347/.400/.535 line with six doubles, two triples, and three home runs. He projects as a utility infielder who hits .280 with some power from the right side.
