Blue Jays INF Joe Panik was removed from Wednesday's game against the A's due to calf tightness.
Panik will undergo test on Thursday to determine the seriousness of the injury. He hasn't been a fantasy factor this season.
The Blue Jays have reportedly told Joe Panik that he has made the Blue Jays' team. Panik won't be moved to the 40-man roster until the Opening Day roster is set.
Panik will provide depth in a talented Blue Jays infield. Panik has major league experience at every infield position, which will allow the Blue Jays to plug and play him wherever he is needed. The 29 year won't provide the Blue Jays with very much power, but he possesses an impressive eye at the plate and puts the ball in play. The Blue Jays will want to have their talented infielders on the field as much as possible, so Panik is unlikely to receive substantial playing time this season. Unless there's an injury somewhere in the Blue Jays' infield, Panik isn't worth a draft pick in most leagues because of the playing time concern.
The Blue Jays signed INF Joe Panik to a minor league contract.
The former Giant will make $1.85 million if he cracks the big league roster. He offers no value in fantasy baseball entering the year.
Joe Panik went 1-for-4 at the plate with a solo home run Wednesday in the loss against the Yankees by a 13-2 score.
Panik has been seeing playing time with the Blue Jays dealing with injuries. The veteran infielder is hitting .263 with one homer, seven RBI, and 13 runs scored over 32 games on the season.
Joe Panik went 1-fo-3 with a walk and a double and scored a run on Tuesday as the Blue Jays lost to the Yankees by a 20-6 score.
Panik has been getting to see plenty of playing time this season as he has filled in all over the infield playing at second base, third, and shortstop. The 29-year-old is hitting .264 with six RBI and 12 runs scored over 31 games this season.
