Giants | Brandon Belt not starting Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:55:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not starting Sunday, Aug. 23, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Buster Posey is at first base and C Andrew Susac is catching, and Posey is batting third against Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) appears to be the victim of a lefty vs. lefty matchup in this game, as he hits .237-4-14 against left-handed pitching. Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) hits .455 against Liriano, so he should definitely be in your FantasyScore lineup if you need a catcher.

Giants | Brandon Belt batting third vs. Nats

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 14:36:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is batting third against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been on fire this month with seven home runs and a .744 slugging percentage over 11 games in August. He draws a tough matchup against Strasburg ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) Thursday, though. He should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option.

Giants | Brandon Belt hits another road homer

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 20:56:13 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 5-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Aug. 6, and 12 of his 14 home runs have come on the road this season.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has 10 more home runs in just 10 more at-bats on the road, but the more telling stat is probably his .288 average against right-handed pitching compared to his .216 average against lefties. Belt can be a useful option at FantasyScore, but the matchup has to be right.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:25:58 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt homered twice Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers.

Giants | Brandon Belt plates three runs

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:32:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 2-for-5 with a run, a double and three RBI during the Giants' 9-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners wouldn't mind a few more round trippers, but all said, Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is having an excellent season. Most importantly, and especially for him, he has remained healthy. He has 44 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI, five stolen bases and a .277/.353/.476 slash line, and should be viewed as a low-end starter at first base and mid-tier starting outfielder in the majority of formats. FantasyScore players should only roster Belt when he faces a favorable right-handed pitcher.

Giants | Justin Maxwell in left field Sunday

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:51:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Justin Maxwell will start in left field and bat seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, July 19. 1B/OF Brandon Belt, who played left field Saturday, July 18, will bat eighth and play first base Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting .215 with six home runs and 23 RBIs through 73 games and he is hitless in three lifetime at-bats against Corbin. You can find better outfield options in FantasyScore for a similar price. Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is only hitting .155 against lefties this year, although he is 3-for-12 against Corbin in his career with a double and an RBI.

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 11:31:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B/OF Brandon Belt will bat sixth and start in left field against Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley Sunday, July 12. OF Gregor Blanco will get the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is making his 10th start of the year in left field and is 2-for-9 versus Billingsley in his career. He is hitting .307 versus righties and .333 during day games this season, making him a sensible starting option for FantasyScore owners who would rather not spend top dollar at the position.
