Brandon Belt socked a three-run homer off Jon Gray in a 6-5 win over the Rockies in Cactus League action on Friday.
It was his third homer of the spring. The 28-year-old has never hit more than 18 homers in a season before and it’s tough to forecast a major improvement given where he plays half of his games, but his strong on-base ability still offers considerable value. He was fifth in the majors in walk percentage and ninth in on-base percentage last season. Mar 24 - 7:32 PM

Brandon Belt finished 2-for-2 with two RBI in the Giants' 6-5 Cactus League win over the Indians on Tuesday.

Belt led off the game's scoring with an RBI double in the Giants' five-run first inning and added a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the top of the second. The first baseman is batting .333 with a 1.091 OPS in 27 at-bats this spring.

Brandon Belt went 1-for-3 with a double and a strikeout in split-squad Cactus League action against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

As a team, the Giants managed just one run on the afternoon. Belt's double off Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray was his first two-bagger of the spring. This past season, he cracked 17 homers and notched 82 RBI in 156 games. While he has yet to hit 20 taters in a season, Belt has put up double-digit bombs each of the last four campaigns.

Brandon Belt went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Royals.

Brandon Belt went 1-for-2 and hit a solo home run in a loss to the Athletics on Monday.

The blast came off Athletics right-hander Zach Neal. Belt had a .275 batting average with 17 home runs and 82 RBI in 2016. His .394 on-base percentage was fifth in the National League.

Brandon Belt went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer, a double, a walk and a HBP to lead the Giants to a 9-3 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Fortunately, Belt was able to stay in after getting hit in the hand in the seventh. Belt, whose OBP too often has gone to waste in the bottom half of the Giants order, hit second for the fifth time tonight. He has a .520 OBP, five runs scored and five RBI in those five games.

Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Brandon Belt is out of the Giants' starting lineup on Tuesday because of an illness.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said his first baseman is "pretty sick." Buster Posey will start at first base and Trevor Brown will play catcher against the visiting Padres.

After getting Tuesday off, Brandon Belt went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk Wednesday against the Rockies.

Manager Bruce Bochy hasn't been showing a whole lot of faith in Belt lately, even though the first baseman has been the team's best hitter this year. Before getting Tuesday off, Belt hit seventh against a right-hander on Monday. Tonight, he was hitting sixth against a left-hander. Belt consistently hits in the bottom half of the order despite possessing the best OBP on the team, one that's about 50 points higher than any other regular besides Buster Posey. We imagine that Belt would have more than 64 runs scored and 68 RBI this year if he played for a different team.

Brandon Belt went hitless in three plate appearances in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

Belt's hitless streak is now at 18 at-bats, dropping his season line to .267/.383/.458. He wasn't the only one to struggled Monday, as the Giants managed just two base hits against Chad Bettis.

Brandon Belt passed through the concussion protocol after he was grazed on the helmet by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Belt knew that he was fine, as he has been through the concussion tests several times before, and doesn't feel like this is anything to worry about. He should be back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

Brandon Belt (neck) went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, a walk, and a run scored in his return to the Giants' lineup Sunday against the Braves.

Belt was a late scratch Saturday due to a stiff neck. It obviously wasn't anything serious. The 28-year-old first baseman is batting .277/.390/.477 with 14 homers and 66 RBI in 126 games this season for San Francisco.
