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.

Giants | Joe Panik back after break

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 23:09:29 -0700

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.

Giants | Joe Panik likely out through break

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 18:57:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) isn't expected to return until after the All-Star break.

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

Giants | Joe Panik put on 7-day DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:16:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, June 29, and SS Ruben Tejada was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Panik doesn't do anything particular well in any fantasy category that makes him valuable in mixed leagues. In his absence, Ramiro Pena or Tejada could see starts at the keystone, but neither have much offensive upside and can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Giants | Joe Panik out again Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:38:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (head) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Ramiro Pena is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea.

Fantasy Tip: Panik is in the concussion protocol after concussion symptoms resurfaced for him after being beaned in the head around 10 days ago. There's a chance he could be put on the 7-day concussion DL if his symptoms don't clear soon. Stay tuned for updates. Pena has 14 hits in 34 at-bats (.412) for the Giants this year but only has eight career homers in seven seasons in the majors and is a weak-hitting, low-end DFS pick tonight.

Giants | Joe Panik was doing well

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 19:39:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) had passed concussion tests for three consecutive days. He was hit in the head 10 days ago against the Tampa Bay Rays, and is feeling concussion-like symptoms again.

Fantasy Tip: Panik should be avoided in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he is able to officially return and play a full game or two without any lingering effects of his injury.

Giants | Joe Panik scratched Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:55:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik (concussion) was scratched from the lineup with concussion symptoms Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: This stems from a beaning in Tampa 10 days ago, so it's troubling for Panik and the Giants. He could need a trip to the 7-day concussion DL, and concussions are always tricky to recover from. Panik is more of an NL-only commodity with a limited offensive profile at the keystone. Stay tuned for more details from the Giants tonight or tomorrow.
