Brandon Belt (ankle) said that he plans on starting on Friday.

Belt showed no noticeable limp after Wednesday's win over the Brewers -- he sat out the game itself -- and unless some unforeseen setback occurs, it looks like he has avoided a legitimate injury. The 28-year-old first baseman was hit in the ankle by a Carlos Torres pitch on Tuesday.

Brandon Belt (ankle) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday against the Brewers.

X-rays on Brandon Belt's injured right ankle came back negative on Tuesday.

Brewers reliever Carlos Torres struck Belt on his ankle with a pitch in the sixth inning. He would remain in the game before being lifted in the seventh. There are no indications at this juncture that Belt might be suffering from any sort of serious injury.

Brandon Belt left Tuesday's win over the Brewers after being hit in the right foot by a pitch.

Belt was hit on the foot by a Carlos Torres offering in the sixth inning. He stayed in to run the bases and stayed in to play first in the bottom of the frame before being replaced by Conor Gillaspie in the seventh. That he managed to stay in to play defense for an inning is a good sign.

Brandon Belt clobbered a two-run homer in the sixth inning on Sunday, powering the Giants to a 2-1 victory over Julio Urias and the Dodgers.

The Giants offense had been shut down by the rookie left-hander through the first five frames. Joe Panik got the table set with a one-out single in the sixth and Belt, who had fanned in each of his first two plate appearances, unloaded on a 1-1 fastball. With his 1-for-4 effort on Sunday, Belt is now hitting .297/.411/.512 with eight homers and 31 RBI.

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with a walk and his sixth home run, a two-run shot, in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the Braves.

Belt got on base four times in the game, but the highlight was his majestic two-run homer to right field. Righty Williams Perez didn't get his changeup down and out of the zone. Belt made him pay with a 375-foot home run. He has a 35/37 K/BB and is hitting .299 with a .419 OBP. The 28-year-old has been brilliant in 2016, even if it hasn't shown up as such in standard fantasy leagues.

Brandon Belt slugged a solo homer in the Giants' loss to the Braves on Monday in Atlanta.

Belt went yard off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the top of the second inning. He then singled in the top of the ninth and would eventually cross home plate on a Kelly Johnson fielding error, but the late rally wasn't enough. Belt has five homers and 25 RBI in 51 games this season for the National League West-leading Giants.

Belt injured the ankle while sliding into second base in the eighth inning. He was able to walk off the field under his own power. After the game, Bochy said that it might take a few games for Belt to return to action, but there are no indications that this is any type of serious injury. He could maybe play Friday in Colorado.
