Giants | Brandon Belt heating up

Sat, 23 May 2015 06:07:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 with two runs, a home run and three RBI against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 22. It was his fourth home run over his past six games, and he has 11 runs, nine RBI and a 1.616 OPS during the run.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has flashed tremendous upside for stretches over the past three seasons, but injuries have always halted his ascend. While he is rolling at the dish, FantasyScore players have a nice value play on their hands, especially with a few more games at Coors Field on deck this weekend.

Giants | No Brandon Belt Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:10:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the starting lineup against a lefty Wednesday, May 20. C Buster Posey is moving to first base, which allows C Andrew Susac to draw a start. Susac is hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is the most expensive catcher at FantasyScore, but he may struggle to justify his price, as he's hitting just .233 (7-for-30) with one home run and five RBI against lefties this year. With a full slate of games tonight, it's best to avoid Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap)

Giants | Brandon Belt homers again

Sun, 17 May 2015 19:04:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and three runs scored in a 9-8 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, May 17, and he has homered in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) went off in the series, going 9-for-14 with three homers, seven RBIs and eight runs scored over the final three games. If you are looking for a mid-priced option at first base at FantasyScore, you won't find anyone swinging the bat better than Belt right now.

Giants | Brandon Belt on power surge

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:31:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is 14-for-29 with six doubles, a triple, two RBI and four walks in his past eight games entering Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a relative bargain on FantasyScore. Belt is playing like an elite-level option at first base despite the fact he's still looking for his first home run of the season. Belt is hitting an astute .338 against right-handed pitchers, and he's worthy of consideration again Tuesday, against Collin McHugh of the Houston Astros.

Giants | Brandon Belt heating up

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:59:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 2-for-3 in a loss Wednesday, May 6, with a double and triple, and he's 6-for-13 with four doubles and a triple in the last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was a breakout candidate entering 2015, but he's been a disappointment so far, hitting just .261 (18-for-69) with no home runs and six RBI. Stay patient. He'll need to start hitting more fly balls to capitalize on his power potential, but it could be right around the corner, and his hot streak of late makes him an excellent value play at FantasyScore.

Giants | Brandon Belt could play LF

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:42:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt will see some starts in left field soon with C Andrew Susac behind the plate and C Buster Posey starting at first base, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a bit of a slow start this year (.233-0-4), but he has plenty of time to bounce back, and he'll continue to see regular playing time. A move to left field might bump either Norichika Aoki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) or Justin Maxwell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) out of the lineup that day.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is starting in left field because Buster Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is at first base and Andrew Susac is behind the plate Sunday.

Giants | Brandon Belt sitting against lefty

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:15:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Tyler Matzek Wednesday, April 15. C Buster Posey is starting at first base and hitting cleanup, while C Hector Sanchez is catching and hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting just .125 this year after dealing with a groin injury in the early going. Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) had the day off yesterday and should be considered a strong catching option at FantasyScore tonight.

Giants | Brandon Belt remains out

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:45:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (groin) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 10. C Buster Posey is starting at first and hitting fourth, while C Hector Sanchez is behind the plate and hitting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) may not be back in the lineup until next week, so play it safe and avoid him at FantasyScore. Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), as always, is one of the safer catcher options on a daily basis.
