The 31-year-old has notoriously been a streaky hitter, but he was stuck in one of the biggest ruts of his career for the good part of two months. That said, he is starting to show a little life at the plate, and it wouldn't be outlandish for him to go on a healthy hot streak to close out 2019 based on his track record. Belt's fantasy owners got even more good news when the first baseman stuck in the two hole, even with Buster Posey returning to the lineup Thursday.
Belt went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Belt was the only Giants htter to really get to Mike Leake, getting involved in both runs scored against the Arizona starter.

Belt showed some signs of life at the plate last week with a pair of homers, but he is hitting just .185 (5-for-27) in eight games since then. The veteran will have to put together an extended hot streak in order to restore faith in fantasy owners at this point.
