Giants 2B Panik breaks loose Thursday with three-hit game
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Giants second baseman Joe Panik has sandwiched two big performances at the plate around a lot of bad ones.
Panik slammed three hits in the season opener and three more in a Thursday loss to Arizona. He was 3-for-29 in-between.
His effort against the Diamondbacks was encouraging. His biggest hit was a game-tying, two-run triple in the ninth off closer Addison Reed that sent the game into extra innings. He also singled twice.
Giants 2B Joe Panik bumped back to No. 8 hole

|(4/15/15) Giants second baseman Joe Panik was bumped to the No. 8 hole in the batting order for Wednesday's game against Colorado, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Panik started all of his eight games for the Giants in the No. 2 hole, but was unable to make an impact at the plate. He batted .200 (6 for 30) with one RBI this season. Matt Duffy took his spot in the No. 2 hole.
Giants' Brandon Belt (groin) out of starting lineup Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Diamondbacks.
Belt left Tuesday's game with a groin injury and was scheduled to undergo an MRI Wednesday. With the first baseman sidelined, catcher Buster Posey will shift to first base and Hector Sanchez will enter the game at catcher.
The Giants will also start Matt Duffy at second base and Justin Maxwell in right field Wednesday, sending Joe Panik and Gregor Blanco to the bench.
Giants 2B Joe Panik (ankle) returns Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) Giants second baseman Joe Panik returned to the lineup Wednesday, going 1 for 4 and scoring a run in his team's 5-2 win over the Indians.
Panik was scratched from Tuesday's game due to a minor ankle issue but was able to get back into the action just one day later. He has hit .222/.279/.444 with three home runs in 63 spring at-bats.
|2014 Summary: The Giants brought up Joe Panik in June to give him a shot at replacing Brandon Hicks at second base, and he took the job and ran with it. Panik started 66 of the remaining 87 games and batted .305 with 31 runs scored. Though the 23-year-old rookie displayed virtually no power (13 extra-base hits in 269 at-bats), he used his contact (12 percent strikeout per at-bat ratio) and line-drive hitting (26 percent rate) skills to bolster his batting average.|
Playing time status: Panik will be the presumptive starter at second base again in 2015, though Matt Duffy and Marco Scutaro (if healthy) could be around to offer a challenge, should he struggle.
2015 Outlook: If you like Scooter Gennett, you will probably love Panik, who projects to be a reliable .290ish hitter. He has a little less power than his Brewers counterpart, but he should walk more and platoon less. Owners in standard mixed leagues can afford to pass Panik up, but he's a nice fallback option in deeper formats.
