Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Belt is still experiencing concussion symptoms more than two weeks after being hit in the head by a pitch, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports. While Belt has been pushing himself in cardio workouts, he's still not at a point where he can go through them at full capacity because of his lingering symptoms. There is no guarantee that he will return in 2017, as this is the fourth documented concussion he's suffered dating back to his time as a college player at the University of Texas.
Belt (concussion) is set to begin light conditioning work Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. This is a significant step for Belt as he works his way back from a concussion that has kept him out since early August. Friday marks Belt's first workout since the concussion, according to Pavlovic. Considering that cardio work is a large indicator of a player's recovery progress, Friday's workout should shed some light on Belt's status moving forward.
Belt (concussion) is not improving and will be examined Wednesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He was transferred from the 7-day DL to the 10-day DL on Tuesday, and it sounds like he should be considered out indefinitely. This is very concerning, given Belt's history of head injuries, and from a fantasy standpoint, it's hard to count on him at all over the rest of the season. Ryder Jones and Buster Posey will continue to see starts at first base going forward.
Belt was transferred Monday from the 7-day disabled list to the 10-day disabled list, MLB.com reports. The transaction is only a procedural move, as Belt had already missed more than a full week of action with the concussion. Belt has an extensive history of head injuries, so he'll remain away from the team for the time being and wait for the concussion symptoms to subside before starting up baseball activities again. In the meantime, Ryder Jones and Buster Posey will pick up the bulk of the starts at first base.
Belt (concussion) is still resting at home, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Belt has already spent the minimum seven days on the disabled list, so he can return once cleared. The 29-year-old still has no timetable for his return, and you can expect some additional caution with Belt's concussion history and the Giants not in the playoff picture.
