Latest Update Joe Panik doubles twice in Game 4 Sun Oct, 26, 06:19 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 came up big for the Giants in this one and brought his World Series average up to .235 (4-for-17) through the first four games. He's now 15-for-63 (.238) with one home run and eight RBI over 14 post-season games.Analyst: Howard Bender
Panik now has as many home runs in the postseason as he had in the regular season. The home run was only Panik's second extrabase hit of the playoffs.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Little Joe Panik had himself a night, sparking the seventh inning rally that led to Giants' win. After changing second baseman as frequently as their drawers, the Giants have finally found a fit. He slashed .305/.343/.368 in 287 big-league plate appearances with just one home run and played slightly above-average defense. In essence, he's a poor man's Scooter Gennett, a nice player in real life, but "meh" in the fantasy realm. He has a remarkably similar profile to Marco Scutaro as well, the man he's *fittingly* replaced in San Francisco. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Panik continued his amazing second half run on Friday, making a big impact for the Giants. He's earned himself an every-day starting role with the Giants, and will look to continue his success against Jordan Zimmermann on Saturday, who he's 0-3 against this season. Analyst: Ben Diamond
