      Giants' Brandon Belt: Fully cleared from concussion

      Belt (concussion) was fully cleared by doctors to resume his normal offseason program, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Belt was shut down at the tail end of the 2015 season due to lingering concussion symptoms. With a few months of recovery, he has been fully cleared to resume his offseason activities. Belt also underwent a procedure to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, but he has fully recovered from that as well. He should enter 2016 healthy, and the starting first baseman for the Giants.

      Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) didn't make trip to San Diego

      Giants first baseman Brandon Belt (concussion) did not make the trip to San Diego, the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea reports. He is flying to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to visit a concussion specialist on Thursday, so he can be safely ruled out for the rest of the series against the Padres. It is not clear when he will rejoin the team, or if he will be able to return to the lineup this season. Buster Posey, Ehire Adrianza and Nick Noonan should see the starts at first base for the foreseeable future.

      Giants 1B Brandon Belt still sidelined with concussion symptoms

      Giants first baseman Brandon Belt (concussion) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres. Buster Posey will take over at first base once again as Belt continues to deal with a concussion he suffered sometime last week. Considering the 27-year-old has now suffered three concussions in the past two years, the Giants could be extra cautious with his availability moving forward, meaning Trevor Brown and Jackson Williams will likely man catcher while Posey fills in at first base.

      Giants 1B Brandon Belt dealing with concussion

      Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was diagnosed with concussion symptoms Saturday and is expected to miss multiple games, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Belt likely sustained the head injury during a collision at second base earlier in the week. Belt passed all his preliminary tests, but the concussion symptoms didn't surface until after Friday's game against the Diamondbacks. Belt missed time with a pair of concussions last season, so expect the Giants to proceed cautiously with him while he deals with yet another setback on that front. Regular catcher Buster Posey is filling in for Belt at first base in Saturday's game, but look for Nick Noonan and perhaps Ehire Adrianza to also see reps at the position if Belt is forced to miss extended time.

      Giants 1B Brandon Belt gets off day Saturday vs. Diamondbacks

      Giants first baseman Brandon Belt is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. This will snap a streak of nine straight starts for Belt, with Buster Posey moving from behind the plate to cover first base. It's not a surprise Belt is getting rest for this game, considering Arizona has left-hander Patrick Corbin on the mound.
