Latest Update Panik hits first career home run in Giants victory Fri Aug, 22, 11:51 PM
Has good bat speed and bat control, making him ideally suited to the No. 2 spot in a batting order. Is patient at the plate and works pitchers during his at-bats. Is a grinder.
Flaws: : Doesn't own much home-run power, and he is only average in terms of base-stealing speed. He's a decent infielder but his arm limits him to second base.
Panik is now slashing .316/.361/.383 with five extra-base hits (1 HR), 13 RBI and 15 runs scored through his first 133 career at-bats in the big leagues. What is even more impressive is that he has just 16 strikeouts while taking 10 walks in his small sample size of at-bats as he continues to prove he is worthy of long term consideration at the keystone. Having now recorded two or more hits in six of his last seven games, Panik deserves some consideration in both NL-only and deep mixed leagues whiling putting up good numbers in the Giants everyday lineup.

Panik dislocated his pinkie Sunday and had it popped back into place. He is still experiencing some soreness and is having some trouble gripping the bat still. Consider him day-to-day for now.Analyst: Howard Bender
Good news for the Giants. He's been their best second baseman this season, which isn't saying much. He's slashing .282/.336/.333 with no home runs. In essence, he's a homeless man's Scooter Gennett. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Panik dislocated his finger sliding into second base in the eight inning of Sunday's game. Panik was 2-for-4 in four at-bats, scoring one of the Giants' runs. Check back for further updates. Joaquin Arias will take his place in the meanwhile. Analyst: Spencer Silva
