Joe Panik

Like Crawford, Joe Panik could benefit from a move down in the order, finally breaking out of his 0-for slump on Thursday with a three-hit night.

Gregor Blanco

Gregor Blanco’s hung around the Mendoza line since the team’s dry spell began, but he has managed to coax some walks when he’s not swinging away. Amongst the Giants regulars, he’s seeing a low of just over four pitchers per at-bat.

Buster Posey

Buster Posey’s numbers are very mediocre by his standards (.227 BA over the streak), but he’s remained one of the team’s most intelligent hitters with just one strikeout to five walks over the past week.

Knowing Buster, the big hits will come in short order.
