Belt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Belt will take a seat Wednesday with the Braves sending southpaw Max Fried to the mound. Belt doesn't regularly sit versus lefties, but it's a good time for an off day since he has a .628 OPS against them this season. Tyler Austin is starting at first base and batting second in his stead.
Belt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Belt missed a few games early in the week as he was dealing with knee discomfort, but this just appears to be a maintenance day for the 31-year-old. Tyler Austin will start at first base and bat third Sunday for the Giants.
Belt went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in an 8-5 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Belt's long ball came in the ninth inning, extending the Giants' lead to 8-4 at the time. He's at seven homers and a .237 average in 43 games this season.
Belt (knee) is starting at first base and batting fourth Friday against the Diamondbacks, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Belt was held out of Wednesday's lineup due to discomfort in his knee, but he's ready to roll after a few days off. He's slashing .192/.364/.423 with a homer and four RBI over his last 10 games.
Belt is dealing with renewed discomfort in his knee, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. This explains why Belt is out of the lineup against a right-hander Wednesday. The veteran first baseman recently returned from a two-game absence, and with Thursday's off day, the Giants wanted to play it safe and give him a couple of days off to get right. Pablo Sandoval is starting at first base and hitting cleanup in his place.
