  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Records first steal

    Belt went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Rockies.

    Belt has now gone 3-for-8 in two games since he returned from neck stiffness. The first baseman also showed off a little speed with his first stolen base of the year. He hasn't attempted more than seven steals in any of the last six years, so he shouldn't be expected to contribute much in that area. The 34-year-old is slashing .253/.387/.467 with four home runs, 11 RBI and 12 runs scored through 92 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Good to go Tuesday

    Belt (neck) is starting at first base and batting second Tuesday against the Rockies, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

    Belt was listed in the lineup each of the past two days before ultimately being scratched with neck stiffness, and he's once again in the starting nine. Assuming the 34-year-old actually plays Tuesday, it will be only his second appearance since being activated off the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Late scratch Monday

    Belt is no longer in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies due to neck stiffness, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Returns to lineup

    Belt (neck) will start Monday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Belt was originally listed in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals after leaving Saturday's contest with neck stiffness, but he wound up being scratched. He's ready to go Monday and will look to build on his .239/.386/.463 season slash line.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Absent from updated lineup

    Belt (neck) is no longer listed in the starting lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Belt was originally penciled in to start at first base Sunday, but he'll instead be sidelined with the neck stiffness that led to his early exit Saturday. He should be considered day-to-day for now, while Darin Ruf starts at first base in his place. For what it's worth, Belt told Steve Kroner of the San Francisco Chronicle that he doesn't believe the neck issue will keep him on the bench beyond Sunday's game.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Good to go Sunday

    Belt (neck) is starting at first base and batting second Sunday against the Cardinals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    The 34-year-old went 0-for-1 with three walks and two runs before leaving Saturday's contest with neck stiffness, but he's back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Saturday's game was Belt's first action since April 27 due to a stint on the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Exits with neck stiffness

    Belt exited Saturday's game against the Cardinals due to neck stiffness, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Belt exited the game in the eighth inning after a swing. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this time, so he should be considered day-to-day. Belt was activated from the COVID-19 injured list prior to Saturday's game, and he went 0-for-1 with three walks and two runs scored prior to his exit.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Reinstated from COVID-19 IL

    Belt (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: On COVID IL

    Belt tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the injured list Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The Giants have been hit hard by COVID-19 related absences this week. Jason Krizan and Ka'ai Tom were promoted from Triple-A to help fill the void in the short term, and LaMonte Wade (knee) is also nearing a return to action.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: On base three times in win

    Belt went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple, a walk and a run scored in Sunday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Belt showed off a little unexpected speed with his second-inning three-bagger to knock in the Giants' fourth run. He hasn't had more than three triples in any of the last five seasons. The first baseman snapped an 0-for-11 funk from his previous three games with this multi-hit performance, his first since April 16. Belt is slashing .236/.373/.509 with four home runs, nine RBI and nine runs scored in 67 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Swats fourth homer

    Belt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday in a 5-2 victory against the Mets.

    Belt registered the only long ball of the contest when he went deep to right field in the second inning. The homer was his fourth of the campaign, tied for fifth in the league. He's coming off a 2021 season during which he slugged a career-high 29 homers in only 325 at-bats.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Goes yard in win

    Belt went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Guardians.

    Belt gave the Giants some extra insurance when he homered off Guardians reliever Anthony Castro in the seventh inning. This was Belt's third long ball in just seven games this season. The first baseman went yard a career-high 29 times last year, and it appears his power surge has carried over. He's slashing .345/.441/.609 with seven RBI and six runs scored through 34 plate appearances in 2022.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Plates two runs Saturday

    Belt went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over Cleveland.

    Belt recorded his fourth multi-hit performance of the campaign and made his presence felt in the fifth inning, when his single to center brought both Thairo Estrada and Steven Duggar home. The veteran first baseman also scored the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth following an RBI groundout from Wilmer Flores. Belt has not been facing lefties regularly this season but is making the most of his playing opportunities so far, as he's hitting .375 (9-for-24) in 2022.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Idle against lefty

    Belt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    With a lefty (Sean Manaea) on the hill for Padres and the Giants playing a day game after a night game, manager Gabe Kapler opted to extend a breather to the lefty-hitting Belt. Wilmer Flores will fill in at first base for Belt, who has gone 7-for-16 with two home runs, a double and three walks through his first four games.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Homers, on base three times

    Belt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run and a walk in a 13-2 win over San Diego on Tuesday.

    Belt kicked off the scoring with a two-run shot off opposing starter Yu Darvish in the first inning, added a single and run in the second and walked in the fifth. The veteran first baseman has been locked in early and is now slashing .438/.526/.875 with two home runs and three multi-hit games through four games on the young season.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Three hits in loss

    Belt went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Padres.

    Belt and Brandon Crawford were the only Giants to record multiple hits in the contest. Through three games, Belt is 5-for-12 with a home run, a double, one RBI and two runs scored. He was hampered by knee inflammation in spring training, but it hasn't been much of an issue for the first baseman once the games started to count. He should continue to play regularly versus right-handed pitchers, though he may be on the bench occasionally versus southpaws.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: On bench versus lefty

    Belt is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Left-hander Trevor Rogers is starting Sunday for Miami, so Belt will head to the bench for the first time this season. Darin Ruf will start at first base in his place while Wilmer Flores serves as the designated hitter.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Launches first homer of year

    Belt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Marlins.

    It was an impressive performance from the veteran first baseman in the Giants' opener, highlighted by an eighth-inning blast off lefty reliever Richard Bleier. Belt posted career-best power numbers last year with 29 homers and a .597 SLG, and he's picked up right where he left off to begin 2022.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Good to go for Opening Day

    Belt (knee) will bat second and play first base for Friday's Opening Day contest against the Marlins, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Belt battled knee inflammation late in camp, though the Giants remained optimistic about his readiness for Opening Day. That optimism has proven accurate, though it's still possible Belt gets a few extra off days early in the year to make sure he stays healthy.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: In lineup as DH

    Belt (knee) will serve as the Giants' designated hitter and will bat second in Monday's Cactus League game against the Athletics.

    Belt started at first base and went 0-for-2 in his spring debut Saturday against the Dodgers, but the Giants will have him fill a non-defensive role in the lineup for his second start of the Cactus League season. The Giants plan to keep Belt in the starting nine Tuesday before deciding whether he's fit to be part of the Opening Day roster, or if he'll require a brief IL stint to begin the season. Darin Ruf would likely absorb most of the at-bats at first base if Belt is sidelined for the start of the campaign.
