Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and RBI in Saturday's game against the Rockies.

Belt picked up just seven hits over his first 38 at-bats (.184) through 10 games. He has picked up the pace, however, hitting safely in seven straight to lift his average to .254 while posting four extra-base hits over the past five contests. He remains a reliable and safe fantasy option across most formats.

Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Belt was the only Giants' player to finish with more than one hit on Sunday. He is working to a .216/.333/.490 triple-slash with three homers, seven RBI and eight runs scored through 51 at-bats. The average might outwardly seem alarming, but Belt has hit .280 and .275 over the past two seasons and he should be able to bring that current mark up as the weather warms. To whit, he has picked up hits in each of his last three games.
Apr 16 - 7:03 PM

Brandon Belt is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Rockies.

It's odd to see Belt get a day off against a weak right-hander, but that's exactly what's going on here. Conor Gillaspie will get the start in his place and bat fifth against Tyler Chatwood on Saturday.
Apr 15 - 1:57 PM

Brandon Belt crushed a pair of home runs, including his first career grand slam on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Giants to victory over the Padres.

The sixth-inning blast off Luis Perdomo briefly put the Giants ahead 5-4, but the lead would prove to be short lived. He also left the yard for a solo shot in his next at-bat, trimming their deficit to 7-6, but that would be the extent of the Giants' offense. It's the fourth multi-homer game of Belt's career. Off to an outstanding start, he's hitting .286/.375/.857 with three long balls and seven RBI.
Apr 7 - 9:45 PM

Brandon Belt went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a triple in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Giants held a 3-1 advantage entering the fifth inning. With one out in that frame, Belt padded the advantage via a no-doubter of a home run to right off Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker. He also tripled in the contest. Not all was shiny for Belt in this one, though, as his fielding error in the bottom of that same fifth inning allowed two runs to score. That tightened the contest and The Diamondbacks proceeded to eventually pull ahead for an 8-6 win. During the 2016 season, Belt slashed .275/.394/.474 with 17 homers and 82 RBI across 542 at-bats.
Apr 6 - 1:22 AM

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.
Mar 14 - 7:26 PM

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.
Mar 11 - 7:36 PM

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

Belt had plenty of 0-for company, as the Giants managed just three total hits on the afternoon. He swatted 17 homers and drove in 82 RBI while boasting a .275 batting average last season.
Mar 4 - 7:11 PM

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.
Feb 27 - 10:44 PM

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.

Belt socked a solo home run in the top of the ninth inning to provide the Giants a cushion in what had been a 1-0 affair. The homer was his 16th of the season. In addition, Belt has worked to a .271/.388/.465 triple-slash with 76 RBI over 505 at-bats.
