  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Reinstated, not starting Tuesday

    Belt (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list but isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Belt has been sidelined for more than three weeks due to inflammation in his right knee, but he'll rejoin the active roster ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Kansas City. The 34-year-old isn't starting with lefty Kris Bubic pitching for the Royals, but the first baseman should start Wednesday against righty Jonathan Heasley.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Closing in on activation

    Belt (knee) could be activated from the 10-day injured list during San Francisco's three-game series with Kansas City, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Belt is feeling strong, per Pavlovic, though the team has yet to set a firm date for his activation. The Giants appear to be taking it day-by-day with the first baseman.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Unlikely to return Sunday

    Belt (knee) probably won't return from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Belt hasn't been announced as suffering a setback, but manager Gabe Kapler indicated it could still be a few days before he's back. As long as the first baseman is sidelined, there should be more playing time available for Darin Ruf. It's questionable if Belt will return during next week's series versus the Royals -- nothing definitive has been determined on how much longer Belt is out.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Closing in on return

    Blet (knee) hopes to ramp up his running program over the next few days before returning from the 10-day injured list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 34-year-old received a cortisone injection May 22 after landing on the injured list with right knee inflammation, but he began his running program last week and appears to be nearing his return to the active roster. Belt doesn't believe he'll require a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated, so he could be back with the Giants relatively quickly if he can avoid any setbacks.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Begins running progression

    Belt (knee) will begin a running progression Friday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Belt resumed hitting in a batting cage Monday, and he'll be able to begin running to close out the week. However, it's not yet clear when he'll return to game action or whether he'll require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Giants.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Hitting in cage

    Belt (knee) hit in a batting cage Monday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Belt hasn't played in 12 days due to right knee inflammation. He's already eligible to return from the injured list, but his return isn't imminent. He remains in San Francisco to continue his recovery while his teammates are away on a 10-game road trip. It's unclear if he'll need a rehab assignment before returning to the active roster.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Won't return when first eligible

    Belt (knee) isn't expected to be ready to return from the injured list when first eligible Sunday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Not starting Sunday

    Belt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    It's unclear whether the lefty-hitting Belt's absence from the starting nine for the series finale is a result of southpaw MacKenzie Gore starting for the Padres or continued discomfort in the first baseman's right knee (or a combination of both). In any case, Belt will be on the bench for the third day in a row, which allows Wilmer Flores to pick up a start at first base.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Receives cortisone shot

    Belt received a cortisone shot and had his knee drained Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Belt was unavailable for the Giants' weekend series against the Padres and has landed on the injured list for the second time this season. However, he's optimistic that he'll be able to return after spending the minimum of 10 days on the IL. Darin Ruf and Wilmer Flores should see additional time at first base while Belt is sidelined.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Returns to IL

    The Giants moved Belt to the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Padres with right knee inflammation.

    Belt didn't play in either of the Giants' first two games of the weekend before the team elected to place him on the IL for the second time this season, after he was previously on the COVID-19-related IL. The Giants will deactivate Belt with the hope that the swelling in his right knee subsides over the next week and allows him to return after a minimum-length or near-minimum stay on the shelf. Darin Ruf and Wilmer Flores will likely see most of the work at first base while Belt is on the IL.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Late scratch Saturday

    Belt was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres due to right knee discomfort, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Belt had his right knee drained Friday, and he'll ultimately be held out of the lineup for a second straight game. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench Saturday, but he should tentatively be considered day-to-day. Wilmer Flores was added to the lineup as the designated hitter.

  • Giants' Brandon Belt: Not in Friday's lineup

    Belt isn't starting Friday against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Belt started in the last eight matchups but will get a breather after he went 1-for-17 with a run, a walk and seven strikeouts over the last four games. Wilmer Flores will shift to first base while Thairo Estrada enters the lineup at the keystone.

  • 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.
