Latest Update Joe Panik went 5-for-5 in the Giants win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday at AT&T Park. Wed Sep, 10, 01:38 AM
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 has been very impressive since joining the Giants starting rotation on a consistent basis, slashing .327/.369/.397 with one home run, 16 RBI and 24 runs scored over 199 at-bats. Although he doesn't provide much outside of batting average help, as long as he continues to rake he is worth an add in deep league formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
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
