      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Slugs first homer

      Joe Panik went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Yankees.Panik was the lone bright spot for the Toronto Blue Jays as the team was crushed 13-2. He delivered a solo home run in the ninth inning, his first long ball of the season. The absence of Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) had benefited Panik, as Cavan Biggio had shifted to the outfield on a part-time basis. However, with Hernandez back, it may be more difficult for Panik to find consistent plate appearances down the stretch.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Fourth start in five games

      Joe Panik will start at third base and will bat fifth Wednesday against the Yankees.Panik will stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games, as Rowdy Tellez's knee injury has indirectly opened up an extra spot for him in Toronto's starting nine in the short term. After going 10-for-21 with six walks in his last seven games, Panik will be rewarded with an assignment in the No. 5 spot in the batting order, the highest he's hit all season.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Wraps up weekend on high note

      Joe Panik went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, two RBI and a run Sunday in the Toronto Blue Jays' 10-8 win over the Red Sox.Panik feasted on Boston's beleaguered pitching staff during the five-game series, supplying seven hits and drawing four walks. Though he started in four of those contests, Panik is expected to remain on the bench more often than not when all of Cavan Biggio, Travis Shaw and Jonathan Villar are healthy and available. The veteran will return to the bench for Monday's series opener versus the Yankees.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Moves into full-time reserve role

      Joe Panik is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.The Toronto Blue Jays have largely been getting by with a platoon of Joe Panik and Santiago Espinal at shortstop after Bo Bichette (knee) went down with an injury Aug. 15, but the deadline-day acquisition of Jonathan Villar likely pushes both Panik and Espinal back into full-time bench roles for the foreseeable future. Panik has posted a career-worst .555 OPS through 66 plate appearances this season.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Third straight start

      Joe Panik will start at shortstop and will bat eighth Sunday against the Orioles.Set to make his third straight start, Panik has seemingly supplanted Santiago Espinal as the primary option at shortstop while Bo Bichette (knee) is sidelined. Panik is batting .204 with no home runs or steals across 58 plate appearances this season, so he's more of an AL-only consideration at this point.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: On bench again

      Joe Panik remains out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Phillies.Since Bo Bichette (knee) moved to the 10-day injured list Sunday, Panik has started at shortstop in only one of the Toronto Blue Jays' five games. Meanwhile, Santiago Espinal will pick up his third straight start at the position in the first game of the doubleheader, suggesting that the Blue Jays may view him as the primary replacement for Bichette.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Sitting against lefty

      Joe Panik is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.The lefty-hitting Panik will sit for the second day in a row with the Orioles bringing another southpaw (Tommy Milone) to the hill, but the 29-year-old still may be headed for a large-side platoon role at shortstop after Bo Bichette (knee) shifted to the injured list Sunday. Santiago Espinal and Brandon Drury should see reps at the position versus right-handed pitching.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Returns to bench

      Joe Panik is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.The absences of Bo Bichette (hamstring), Randal Grichuk (back) and Travis Shaw (personal) allowed Panik to start the past three games, but he'll retreat to the bench in the series finale with Bichette back in action. Panik has appeared in four contests in total for the Jays, producing two hits in 11 at-bats.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Earns roster spot

      The Toronto Blue Jays officially purchased Joe Panik's contract Sunday and added him to their 40-man roster, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.Panik was attending spring training with Toronto on a minor-league deal that contained an opt-out clause for March 15, so the Blue Jays were forced to make a decision on his status even while the MLB season remains suspended. The Blue Jays placed pitcher Yennsy Diaz on the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Panik. He'll offer Toronto some veteran depth up the middle behind second-year starters Cavan Biggio and Bo Bichette.

      Blue Jays' Joe Panik: Keeps raking

      Joe Panik got the start at second base and hit second in Monday's split-squad game against the Pirates, going 2-for-3 with a caught stealing.The 29-year-old came into camp as a non-roster invitee, but a .375/.476/.750 slash line through eight spring games has put Panik in position to win a spot on the Jays' bench. The club had a great deal of success reviving Eric Sogard's career in a similar spot last year, but fantasy GMs will likely want to see Panik string together some hits in the regular season before taking the plunge.
