Brandon Belt (flu) is back in the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Padres.

Belt missed Tuesday's game because of flu-like symptoms. He is starting at first base and batting sixth Wednesday afternoon versus San Diego right-hander Luis Perdomo.

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.
Sep 13 - 7:47 PM

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.
Sep 8 - 12:24 AM

Brandon Belt, Denard Span, and Joe Panik are absent from the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

Buster Posey is at first base, Trevor Brown is at catcher, Gorkys Hernandez is in center field, and Kelby Tomlinson is at second base versus Rockies lefty Tyler Anderson.
Sep 6 - 5:12 PM

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.
Sep 5 - 6:55 PM

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.
Sep 4 - 10:21 PM

Brandon Belt is not in the Giants' lineup Friday.

He's sitting out against southpaw Jon Lester. Buster Posey is at first base and Trevor Brown is catching.
Sep 2 - 12:03 PM

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.
Aug 29 - 9:03 AM

Brandon Belt was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Braves due to a stiff neck.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at first base and bat fifth.
Aug 27 - 8:53 PM

Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored on Saturday.

The longball was his 13th of the year. The two hits that didn't leave the yard were doubles. He is batting .287/.397/.496 over 373 at-bats.
Aug 6 - 11:00 PM

Brandon Belt is not in the Giants' lineup Friday.

Aug 5 - 3:14 PM

Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

He had one of three dingers on the night for the Giants, as Angel Pagan and Brandon Crawford also went deep. Belt's tater tied things up in the fifth inning as the Giants came back from a 6-0 deficit, but they eventually fell in a slugfest. It was only Belt's second home run since June 20.
Aug 2 - 10:36 PM

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer as the Giants' No. 6 hitter on Monday.

Manager Bruce Bochy has been shifting hot and cold hands up and down his lineup all year long, and Belt was dropped tonight as a result of his poor July. He won't stay in the sixth spot for long if he's over his slump.
Jul 26 - 1:51 AM

Brandon Belt was moved down to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Belt has been the primary No. 3 hitter dating back to mid-June, but he's batting just .185 with zero homers and a .589 OPS this month. Jarrett Parker will get an opportunity to hit third Monday against Anthony DeSclafani.
