Joe Panik has not played since June 27.
But according to Giants GM Bobby Evans, Panik may be returning within a week.
"He is doing very well. He's not at 100 percent from the concussion symptoms but he's as close to 100 percent as you can imagine," Evans said on KNBR 680 on Thursday morning. "And that's a great sign for him. He's done everything baseball wise, and he shouldn't be long for being out in the system doing some rehab and getting into some games. I would expect that to happen this weekend most likely."
How many games in the minors will Panik play in before he's ready to rejoin the big club?
"Would like to get him 15 at-bats, 15 plate appearances over four games," Evans said. "Something to that nature would be a pretty good run for him, and a measure on how he's feeling."
The Giants play a three-game series in San Diego this weekend, and then have an off day on Monday.
After two games in Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Orange and Black have another day off on Thursday before opening a three-game set against the Yankees on Friday.
"If everything still feels as good as it does now, and he's gotten through all of the protocol relative to the concussion symptoms, he could be activated maybe at the end of the Boston series, or by the time we get to New York," Evans added.
In 70 games this season, Panik is hitting .256 with seven home runs and 36 RBI.
