RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Joe Panik.
Panik, San Francisco's 2011 first-round draft pick (29th overall), put up a solid season High-A producing a .297/.368/.402 slash line with seven home runs in 605 plate appearances. His offense took a step back considering his 2011 season in Low-A, which is attributed to a drop in BABIP. Panik does not have much power (.105 ISO), but he has shown a good eye at the plate (9.6 percent walk rate) and only had an 8.9 percent strikeout rate in 2012. Most scouts see him as a future second baseman because of his lack of arm strength and speed.
Panik was taken with the 29th pick of the 2011 draft and he posted a .341/.401/.467 line over 270 at-bats as a 20-year-old in Low-A after joining the Giants organization. He's a long ways from making an impact at the major league level, but held his own during a stint against advanced competition in the Arizona Fall League (.323/.394/.473), although it's unclear if he's more of a utility guy or a possible regular down the road.
