Brandon Belt is not in the Giants' lineup Friday.

Both Belt and Joe Panik are on the bench with the Nationals throwing lefty Gio Gonzalez. Buster Posey is at first base, Trevor Brown is at catcher and Ehire Adrianza is at second base.
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.
Jul 25 - 6:19 PM

Brandon Belt went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's loss and is hitting .208 with no homers in 48 at-bats this month.

Belt was due to go into a slump at some point, but even with the off month so far, he still has an .886 OPS for the year. He'll likely pull out of it soon enough.
Jul 19 - 10:29 PM

Brandon Belt opened the second half by striking out four times Friday against the Padres.

It's the first time the All-Star has done that since 2014. He entered the night with a 67/54 K/BB ratio in 364 plate appearances, a huge improvement on last year's 147/56 mark in 556 plate appearances.
Jul 16 - 1:27 AM

Brandon Belt will be on the National League All-Star team after winning the Final Vote competition.

He beat out Starling Marte, Ryan Braun, Jake Lamb and Trevor Story. It will be the first All-Star Game for Belt, who has batted .300/.399/.519 with 10 homers so far in the first half.
Jul 8 - 4:55 PM

Brandon Belt went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Belt put the Giants out to a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning. They would extend that to 2-0 through five innings before the bullpen coughed up a flurry of late runs to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Over the course of 293 at-bats, Belt is slashing a healthy .297/.398/.509 with 26 doubles, 10 homers and 45 RBI.
Jul 6 - 2:05 AM

Brandon Belt is getting the day off Thursday.

Buster Posey will start at first base and Trevor Brown will start at catcher versus Pirates left-hander Jonathon Niese. It's just a day of rest for Belt.
Jun 23 - 10:59 AM

Brandon Belt went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Belt cracked a solo home run off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi with one out in the fourth inning. The dinger was his 10th of the season. In addition to having already hit 10 long-balls, the first baseman is slashing .305/.418/.540 across 226 at-bats. He has homered twice in his last three games.
Jun 19 - 4:58 PM

Brandon Belt socked his ninth home run of the season on Friday, helping to power the Giants to a 5-1 victory over the Rays.

Showing no ill-effects of the ankle injury that kept him out of Wednesday's game, Belt tagged Enry Romero for the solo shot in the seventh inning. He also doubled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He's having another terrific season at the plate, slashing .306/.417/.534 with nine long balls and 34 RBI.
Jun 17 - 10:42 PM

Brandon Belt (ankle) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

Belt hasn't played since leaving Tuesday's game with a bruised ankle, but he's ready to roll now. He's at first base and batting third against the Rays.
Jun 17 - 3:32 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 7:51 PM

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

No surprise after he left Tuesday's game with a bruised right ankle. X-rays turned up negative and Belt is considered day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will start at first base and bat eighth versus righty Jimmy Nelson.
