|(7/29/15) Giants second baseman Joe Panik was held out of Tuesday's game against the Brewers due to back stiffness, manager Bruce Bochy said. Bochy also said Panik will likely miss Wednesday's game, which would give him three days off with Thursday's scheduled off-day.
Panik has been hitting decently over the last several games, as he is batting .281 over his last 10 contests.

Over his last three games, Panik is hitting .500 with seven hits, five runs, a home run and three RBI.
NL All-Star reserves, pitchers and Final Vote candidates revealed
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) The National League All Star reserves and pitchers were announced on Monday evening, and there was no room for the reigning National League MVP.
Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was not selected for the All Star team, although he's one of five candidates to take the final spot on the roster in the Final Vote.
Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant made the team as an injury replacement for the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton. Bryant is one of two rookies on the team, along with Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson.
The Pirates sent two starting pitchers to the All Star team for the first time since 1960. MLB wins leader Gerrit Cole and fellow Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett will both be making their first appearance.
National League reserves are:
Catchers: Yasmani Grandal, Dodgers; Yadier Molina, Cardinals
First basemen: Adrian Gonzalez, Dodgers; Anthony Rizzo, Cubs
Second basemen: DJ LeMahieu, Rockies; Joe Panik, Giants
Third basemen: Nolan Arenado, Rockies; Kris Bryant, Cubs
Shortstop: Brandon Crawford, Giants
Outfielders: Andrew McCutchen, Pirates; Joc Pederson, Dodgers; A.J. Pollock, Diamondbacks; Justin Upton, Padres
National League pitchers are:
Madison Bumgarner, Giants; A.J. Burnett, Pirates; Aroldis Chapman, Reds; RHP: Gerrit Cole, Pirates; Jacob deGrom, Mets; Zack Greinke, Dodgers; Mark Melancon, Pirates; Shelby Miller, Braves; Jonathan Papelbon, Phillies; Francisco Rodriguez, Brewers; Trevor Rosenthal, Cardinals; Max Scherzer, Nationals; Michael Wacha, Cardinals
The five candidates for the Final Vote are:
Johnny Cueto, Reds; Jeurys Familia, Mets; Carlos Martinez, Cardinals; Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers; Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies
|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.
