Giants 2B Joe Panik (back) has rehab stint delayed
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/30/15) Second baseman Joe Panik has had his rehab stint slowed as he tries to recover from a back injury that has sidelined him since Aug. 1, per CSN Bay Area.
Panik will remain with the team through their upcoming series against the Dodgers, which begins Monday, before joining Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday. The team is hoping to have Panik return when they start a series in Arizona on Sept. 7.
Panik is slashing .309/.374/.443 this season.

Giants 2B Joe Panik to see back specialist
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/15) Giants second baseman Joe Panik is scheduled to see a back specialist as part of his rehabilitation process, reports MLB.com.
Panik has missed the last 14 games after being placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his lower back. The Giants are unsure when he will return.
"What I'm more concerned about is making sure we don't rush him back and make this thing worse," manager Bruce Bochy said.
Giants' Bochy not expecting Joe Panik to come off DL Monday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/12/15) Giants manager Bruce Bochy isn't expecting second baseman Joe Panik (back) to come off the disabled list when eligible Monday, as he has yet to resume baseball activities.
"He's working out, riding the bike, doing some things," Bochy said. "We're going to back him off this week and then he'll probably start taking some swings."
|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.
