Giants | Brandon Belt has bad night

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 00:14:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts against the San Diego Padres on Friday, July 15. He and manager Bruce Bochy were then ejected for arguing ball and strikes in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off his first All-Star Game appearance, Belt was punched out a season-high four times Friday night and was ejected. While that's certainly not how he wanted to start the second half, Belt remains a solid bat in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt drove in four runs Thursday, June 30, in a 12-6 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: It has been another solid season for Belt (.300-10-42), and the best part is he appears to have cut down on the strikeouts. Belt has 57 in 78 games after ending last year with 147 whiffs. Belt should be played in all formats.

Giants | Brandon Belt stays hot in June

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:48:23 -0700

Giants | Three Giants take a seat

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 08:02:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt, OF Angel Pagan and OF Gregor Blanco are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. OF Mac Williamson is hitting third, C Trevor Brown hits fifth and OF Jarrett Parker hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson is hitting .182 on the year, but he's a stud of a basement play today hitting ahead of Buster Posey, who shifted to first base. Brown is hitting .238 this month, but he has some upside for his place in the lineup against Jonathon Niese. Parker doesn't deserve much consideration against the lefty.

Giants | Brandon Belt slugs 10th home run

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 14:05:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and scored twice against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Belt posted a nearly identical line against Tampa Bay on Friday and is batting .358 with five home runs and 10 RBI this month, with three homers and six RBI alone since last Sunday. The 28-year-old Texas native is hitting .305 for the season and has nearly as many walks (44) as strikeouts (45), so he's obviously seeing the ball very well. Keep him active as the red-hot Giants visit the struggling Pittsburgh Pirates for four games beginning on Monday.

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:06:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) is in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Friday, June 17, and is batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Belt has been on a hot streak over the last few weeks and has at least one hit in 14 of his last 16 games. Belt should be a starting option in all leagues as long as he is producing at the plate.

Giants | Brandon Belt says he's starting Friday

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 17:37:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) is walking without a limp and the swelling is "pretty much" gone. He said he plans to return to the starting lineup Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Well, this is certainly news his fantasy owners want to hear after the 28-year-old had to miss one game as a result of being hit by a pitch on Tuesday. Belt is having a nice sixth year in the big leagues and can confidently be returned to starting lineups across all fantasy leagues.

Giants | Brandon Belt hopeful for Friday

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 11:49:26 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) is hopeful to return to the lineup Friday, June 17, and felt iffy to pinch hit Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Conor Gillaspie is in for him Wednesday, but he's hitting .158 on the year. He's not a good option against Jimmy Nelson today. Belt is an upper-middle option when he returns.
