San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) is back in the lineup Thursday, July 28, against the Washington Nationals. He's starting at second base and batting third opposite SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Concussions can be tricky to return from, so owners might want to use some caution regarding Panik in his first couple games back from injury. This will be his first game in a month.

Giants | Joe Panik activated from DL

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:24:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 28. In a corresponding move, 2B Grant Green was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: When he's been healthy, Panik's had a respectable season with a .256/.321/407 slash line, 45 runs, seven home runs, 36 RBI and five stolen bases. However, while there's upside, he's likely best suited for deep leagues at this point.

Giants | Joe Panik set for rehab assignment

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:00:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) will start a rehab assignment with Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 26. It's possible he could rejoin the club during their current home stand.

Fantasy Tip: Panik has been sidelined since the end of June, but fortunately, it looks like he's coming close to a return. The Giants could certainly use his bat in the lineup again, as they've been struggling since the All-Star break. Panik is only slashing .256/.321/.407 on the year in 70 ballgames, but he hit over .300 in each of his previous two seasons in the majors. He's worth scooping up.

Giants | Joe Panik making progress

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:09:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) has turned a corner in his recovery from a concussion and is making progress, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Panik likely will need to go on a rehab assignment before he is cleared to play again, so he is still probably a few weeks away from returning. Panik posted solid numbers when he was healthy and will be a decent option in mixed leagues when he returns to the lineup.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik taking it slow

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:23:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are taking the day off in their rehab assignment at Class AAA Sacramento Friday, July 22. Pence's rest was planned, but Panik "just wasn't feeling great" after Thursday, July 21. General manager Bobby Evans said Panik has passed his concussion protocols and wasn't woozy. Rather, Panik's timing at the plate has been off. There remain no tentative dates for Pence and Panik to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being very cautious with both of their regulars. Pence is the more attractive fantasy commodity and should still be stashed in all leagues as he nears a return. He isn't running anymore these days, but his .298 average and seven home runs looked nice before his injury. Panik offers very modest returns in all categories at the keystone and is more of a depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's back.

Giants | Joe Panik set to return Friday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:48:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) seems ready to return from the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, July 22. He didn't have any recurrence of concussion symptoms after his rehab appearance with Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 19. He'll play seven innings Wednesday, July 20, and nine innings Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is a modest contributor across all categories for the Gigantes and was hitting .256 with only seven home runs, 36 RBI and five steals before his head injury. Still, he moves the needle in NL-only leagues because he'll return to regular starting duties at second base.

Giants | Hunter Pence, Joe Panik rehabbing

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:35:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (concussion) are both expected to play for Class AAA Sacramento Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pence should remain stashed everywhere, as he was hitting .298 with seven home runs and 36 RBI in 208 plate appearances before his injury. He doesn't run anymore, but he's still useful in all fantasy formats. Panik doesn't do anything overly well and is mainly a depth option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's starting every day. Stay tuned on their progress and when they might return.

Giants | Joe Panik passes concussion tests

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 17:29:31 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) successfully passed concussion tests Friday, July 15, clearing the way for him to begin a rehab assignment within the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Panik could return to action versus the Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees during next week's road trip. He should continue to be stashed in NL-only fantasy leagues but DFS owners should avoid using him until he has played in at least one full game without experiencing any setbacks.

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) could be back with the parent club for either of the upcoming road series against the Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: This news means Panik would miss the first three games of the road trip against the San Diego Padres when the second half of the season begins. His earliest date of return would be around July 19. He should be sidelined in all formats for this week at least.

Fantasy Tip: Panik has a mediocre average and modest power, but he is worth owning in NL-only leagues.
