Brandon Belt (concussion) is still resting at home.

Brandon Belt (concussion) is feeling better and will have a medical checkup on Friday.

Giants placed 1B Brandon Belt on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Belt was struck in the helmet by a pitch during Friday's game against the Diamondbacks. Given his lengthy history of concussion issues, this move was a foregone conclusion. Pablo Sandoval was recalled from Triple-A to take his spot on the active roster.

Brandon Belt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Diamondbacks after being hit in the helmet by a pitch.

The pitch was a 79 mph curveball from Diamondbacks' starter Anthony Banda. Belt has a lengthy history of concussion issues, so the Giants will play things very cautiously here. It wouldn't be surprising to see him land on the 7-day concussion DL.
