Giants' Brandon Belt: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt will sit Saturday against southpaw Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Belt has started against just one of the seven lefties the Giants have faced this season. Wilmer Flores will start at first base in his absence.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Sitting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Belt will take a seat with the Giants facing a left-handed starting pitcher (Kyle Freeland) in a day game after a night game. Belt was able to take advantage while starting in the first three games of the series at Coors Field, going 4-for-12 with a home run, a double, two runs and three RBI.

Giants' Brandon Belt: On board with first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt went 2-for-4 with a double, a three-run home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rockies.

His first long ball of the year was a big one, as it turned a two-run deficit into a one-run lead for San Francisco. Belt missed the start of the season with an Achilles injury and it looks like he may be a strict platoon player at this point -- sharing time with Wilmer Flores -- but he is seeing the ball well through five games (five walks, two extra-base hits) and is locked into the heart of the order against righties.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Out versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Rangers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Belt returned from the injured list Thursday and will sit against left-hander Kolby Allard after going 1-for-5 with five walks in his first two games back. Wilmer Flores will start at first base and bat second for the Giants.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is not in the lineup against lefty Mike Minor and the Rangers on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's unclear whether Belt's absence Friday is due to the fact that the Giants are facing a southpaw or the fact that he only just returned from an Achilles injury Thursday. Whatever the reason, Wilmer Flores will slide over to first base in his absence.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Draws three walks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt (Achilles) went 0-for-2 with three walks in Thursday's 12-7 extra-inning loss to the Padres.

Belt showed patience at the plate in his season debut, which was delayed a week as he recovered from an Achilles injury for most of summer camp. The first baseman struck out in his other two plate appearances. In 2019, Belt his .234 with 17 homers and 57 RBI in 156 games, a down year for the career .261 hitter.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt (Achilles) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Belt was working his way back from an Achilles injury during the majority of camp. He'll be eligible to make his season debut against the Padres on Thursday, along with teammate Evan Longoria (oblique). With Belt available again, Pablo Sandoval will likely retreat to a bench role. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Giants limit Belt's workload as he makes his return to the field.

Giants' Brandon Belt: On track for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler reiterated that Belt (Achilles) remains on track to return from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's series finale against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Evan Longoria (oblique) is also expected to return from the IL, providing the Giants with both of their primary starters at the corner-infield spots. Pablo Sandoval had served as the team's starting first basemen against right-handed pitching for the Giants' first six games, but he'll likely move into a full-time bench role with Belt back in the fold.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Expected back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt (Achilles) is expected to return from the injured list Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Belt has been battling an Achilles injury since early in camp. His placement on the injured list was backdated to July 20, so he'll be eligible to return a week into the season.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Will start season on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Monday that Belt (heel) won't be ready for Opening Day, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Belt had been dealing with right heel pain throughout camp, and Kapler confirmed Monday that the 32-year-old will begin the season on the injured list as he continues to recover. While he'll miss the first several games of the regular season, it remains to be seen exactly how much time he'll miss as a result of the injury. With Belt and Evan Longoria (oblique) sidelined, Wilmer Flores and Pablo Sandoval (elbow) could see an uptick in playing time to begin the year.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Status for Opening Day in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Tuesday he isn't "100 percent sure" Belt (heel) will be ready for Opening Day, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The veteran first baseman was out of his walking boot Tuesday and took some swings in the batting cage, but his status for the season opener next week remains up in the air. The exhibition contests against the A's next Monday and Tuesday could end up being Belt's final chances to prove his game readiness if he can't return to intrasquad action this week.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Sheds walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt (heel) was out of his walking boot Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Belt has been dealing with right heel pain that forced him into a walking boot, but he was seen out of the boot Tuesday as he prepared to take swings in the batting cages. The Giants remain hopeful that the 32-year-old will be ready for Opening Day against the Dodgers on July 23.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Managing heel injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is sidelined by right heel pain and will be re-evaluated in 5-to-7 days, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear how the veteran first baseman picked up the injury, but it's not a great development in the early stages of camp. Belt is sporting a walking boot, per Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News, and his availability for Opening Day figures to hinge on how well he feels when re-evaluated next week.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Solid spring performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt slashed .280/.321/.560 with two home runs and one stolen base through 10 games before spring training was suspended.

The veteran first baseman has historically been a strong performer in the Cactus League, and that trend continued in 2020. Belt had a career-worst 99 wRC+ in 2019 but is poised for another season starting at first base for the Giants.

Giants' Brandon Belt: On bench again lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt will sit against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers on Saturday.

Belt has struggled at the plate for most of September, hitting just .228/.299/.405. Austin Slater gets the nod at first base in his absence.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Held out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.

The Giants will take on left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday, so as has been the case all month, Belt will not be in the lineup with a southpaw on the mound for the opponent. Austin Slater will get the start at first base in Belt's place.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Sitting vs. LHP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

While Belt has not been a strict platoon player this season -- he has made 28 starts against lefties -- lately manager Bruce Bochy has been turning elsewhere when the Giants face a southpaw. Austin Slater gets the nod at first base in this one.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Belt has been swinging a hot bat, going 14-for-39 (.359) with one home run, a triple and six doubles over his last 10 games. Aramis Garcia is starting at first base and hitting ninth.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Pops 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belt went 1-for-6 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Red Sox.

Belt got the Giants' offense rolling with his 17th home run of the year in the first inning of a game that would last 15 frames. The 31-year-old overcame his injury woes this season (146 games played), but that has been negated by career lows in batting average (.236) and slugging percentage (.411). That said, Belt has put together a nice little hot streak over his last 10 contests, slashing .342/.405/.632 with seven extra-base hits as he tries to finish the 2019 campaign on a strong note.
