Giants | Joe Panik getting closer

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:45:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (groin) played catch Monday, May 2, and he's also going to try taking grounders that are hit directly at him, as well as hitting off a tee. He's still considered "questionable/doubtful" through Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Panik was out to a nice start this year before landing on the sidelines, so owners shouldn't lose track of him upon his return, which looks like it will be sooner than later. With him out of the lineup, Kelby Tomlinson benefits the most, but isn't really an inspiring option to lean on in any formats.

Giants | Joe Panik unlikely to play Monday

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:58:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (groin) won't be ready to play until Tuesday, May 3, at the earliest due to a groin injury, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Panik hasn't played since Friday and apparently won't go in Monday's opener against the Cincinnati Reds either, although it sounds like owners won't have to wait too much longer for him. Kelby Tomlinson should get another start Monday, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Giants | Joe Panik could miss a couple days

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:36:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (groin) will likely miss a game or two because of his groin injury, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Panik said he could pinch hit Saturday, April 30, though.

Fantasy Tip: Panik has been a solid hitter since entering the league with a career .305/.361/.427 slash line. He also has 17 runs, three home runs and 12 RBI through 103 plate appearances to start the season. Don't expect big numbers in the home run and stolen base columns, but Panik is a strong contributor in the other three standard categories. Stay tuned for updates as he works his way back to the starting lineup.

Giants | Joe Panik has minor groin injury

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:29:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (groin) is not in the starting lineup versus the New York Mets Saturday, April 30, after sustaining a groin injury during the ninth inning of the game Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is being rested as a precautionary measure, so he is not expected to miss much playing time. INF Kelby Tomlinson will play the keystone position Saturday but should not be viewed as a great fantasy option.

Giants | Joe Panik out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:07:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, April 30. INF Kelby Tomlinson will bat eighth and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Panik from all fantasy lineups Saturday. Tomlinson has collected just three hits through his first 19 at-bats in 2016 and should only be used as a means of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Giants | Joe Panik has hip issue

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 10:33:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (hip) banged his hip diving for a ground ball Wednesday, April 13, but he's expected to play again Friday, April 15. Panik is available off the bench Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Panik will be fine. He has one home run in nine games but is hitting a mere .235 (8-for-34). Panik makes consistent contact and doesn't strike out much, but he doesn't run much and lacks power. He's more of middle infield insurance for fantasy owners in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Giants | Joe Panik out against lefty

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:37:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa on the mound. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlinson doesn't have the offensive prowess at this stage to be worth a daily flyer.

Giants | Joe Panik resting Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 11:03:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, April 9. INF Kelby Tomlinson is playing second base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed-hitting Panik appears to be receiving a day off because the Giants are facing left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw. He should return to the lineup Sunday, April 10.

Giants | Joe Panik drives in three Thursday

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 17:28:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and three runs scored in a victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is off to a solid start this year, batting .353 through his first 17 at-bats. He should be viewed as a viable middle infield option in mixed fantasy leagues.

Giants | Joe Panik had stress fracture

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 17:15:37 -0800

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) dealt with a stress fracture of the L5 vertebra in his back last year, but the fracture has completely healed. He played in just three games after going on the disabled list Aug. 1. Panik said structurally his back is sound, and he's not limited at all.

Fantasy Tip: Panik was in the midst of a breakout season before his injury. He has great plate discipline and a contact profile, with some decent power at the keystone. It may be tough to approach a .300 average again, but it's doable. Panik is a consistent middle infielder to own in deep mixed leagues for average stability.
