Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 6-5 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday.
Belt's RBI came on a ground-rule double, and he had two more singles in the contest. The three hits push his average to .305 on the 2018 campaign, and it's his 35th RBI in 58 games with the Giants. He's looked like the same hitter he was before the emergency appendectomy, and somewhat quietly, he's been one of the best first baseman in all of baseball in 2018. Jun 20 - 6:53 PM

Brandon Belt went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's road win against the Dodgers.

Belt had his first hit and RBI since returning from the 10-day disabled list after an emergency appendectomy. He was hitless on Saturday, but he looked good enough on Sunday to feel confident in starting him across the board heading into the new week. Belt is slashing .302/.397/.548 through 55 games with 12 homers and 33 RBI.
Jun 17 - 9:33 PM

Giants activated 1B Brandon Belt from the 10-day disabled list.

Belt had been sidelined since undergoing an emergency appendectomy on June 1. He returns to a terrific .307/.403/.547 triple-slash with 11 homers and 31 RBI through his first 192 games. He'll jump right back into the middle of the Giants' lineup for Saturday's game against Alex Wood and the Dodgers.

Brandon Belt (appendicitis) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Belt rejoined the team on Friday, though he was not activated for Friday's game against the Dodgers. Prior to undergoing an emergency appendectomy, he was on fire at the plate, slashing .307/.403/.547 with 11 homers and 31 RBI in 192 at-bats. Let's hope that the time off doesn't cut into that extremely valuable production.
Jun 16 - 10:00 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters that he expects Brandon Belt (appendicitis) to return at some point over the Giants next homestand.

This is a bit of a wide landing spot for Belt, as the homestand begins on Monday and runs through June 28. He's been on the disabled list since June 2, so he's eligible to return whenever he's healthy enough to do so. There's a good chance he's back on Monday, but the return date is up in the air, and could extend into the next week if the Giants aren't comfortable putting Belt back on the field.
Jun 13 - 6:27 PM

Brandon Belt (appendicitis) will take some swings Monday at the Giants' spring training facility.

Belt has missed most of this month after having an emergency appendectomy. He's hopeful of returning from the disabled list around June 15 if all goes well, and we could know more about his status on Monday after he takes some swings.
Jun 10 - 2:40 PM

Brandon Belt (appendicitis) is aiming to return to the Giants' active roster around June 15.

Belt was placed on the disabled list June 2 after undergoing emergency surgery to remove his appendix. He will report to the Giants' spring training complex in Arizona on Friday to begin workouts. The 30-year-old first baseman holds a stellar .307/.403/.547 batting line with 11 home runs and 31 RBI in 53 games this season.
Jun 7 - 6:05 PM

Giants placed 1B Brandon Belt on the 10-day disabled list with appendicitis.

More specifically, Belt had his appendix removed late Friday in an emergency procedure. There's no real set timetable for a return from these types of things -- some players take a few weeks, some a few more, and on the flipside, Matt Holliday actually avoided the disabled list after having his removed early in the 2011 season. We'll see how he progresses in the coming days.
Jun 2 - 5:53 PM

Brandon Belt underwent an emergency appendectomy on Friday after he was removed during the third inning of the Giants' game against the Phillies.

Belt will be discharged from the hospital on Saturday. The 30-year-old will almost certainly be placed on the 10-day disabled list, though it's unclear at the moment exactly how much time he stands to miss. Pablo Sandoval took over for him at first base on Friday and could see more action at the position in the upcoming days.
Jun 2 - 2:39 PM

Brandon Belt was rushed to the hospital late Friday to be evaluated for appendicitis.

Belt may require an emergency appendectomy, in which case he would land on the disabled list. Belt has been on fire at the plate this season, slashing .307/.403/.547 with 11 homers and 31 RBI.
Jun 2 - 1:15 PM

Brandon Belt was removed from Friday's game against the Phillies due to a stomach illness.

That's certainly encouraging news for fantasy owners, as many had assumed the worst after the oft-injured Belt was lifted from Friday's contest in the third inning. Consider him day-to-day.
Jun 1 - 11:42 PM

Brandon Belt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Phillies in the third inning with a possible injury.

No word yet on what occurred, but Belt was replaced by Pablo Sandoval defensively to begin the third inning. The Giants should provide an update on his status shortly.
Jun 1 - 11:09 PM

Brandon Belt finished Tuesday's game in Colorado with a pair of singles across four at-bats.

Belt was able to extend his hitting streak to nine games. He is hitting .371 (13-for-35) with a home run, six RBI and six runs scored during the solid stretch, raising his overall average from .303 to .316 just since May 18. Belt is really locked in right now and producing good numbers for owners in all fantasy formats. He'll try to keep it going against RHP Jon Gray on Wednesday. Belt is just 1-for-7 (.143) with two walks and a strikeout in his brief dealings against the Colorado starter.
May 30 - 12:44 AM

Brandon Belt swatted a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning to propel the Giants to a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday.

In a 5-5 game in the seventh inning, Belt stepped to the dish with two on and lefty Jake McGee on the bump for the Rox. Belt delivered, as he has often this year, knocking a three-run jack over the right field wall to give the Giants the late lead. The first baseman has surprisingly been one of the best hitters in the National League this year, batting .313/.413/.594 with 11 homers, 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. He's been especially dangerous in the past week, recording six multi-hit games since last Sunday. Few are locked in like he is right now.
May 20 - 9:13 PM

Brandon Belt (knee) is back in the Giants' lineup Saturday.

Belt sat out Friday's game with some knee soreness but is ready to roll now. He is at first base and batting cleanup against Jon Gray and the Rockies.
