Giants | Brandon Belt homers twice

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

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

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has 12 home runs for the season, after hitting just one homer in July. Owners will want to see this power surge continue in order to get some upside out of Belt.

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.

Giants | Brandon Belt starting in left field

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.

Giants | Brandon Belt out Friday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 11:24:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is out of the lineup Friday, July 3, with C Andrew Susac behind the plate and C Buster Posey at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting fifth against lefty Gio Gonzalez. Susac is hitting .344 in 32 at-bats against lefties this season. He's a prime bargain play on FantasyScore today.

Giants | Andrew Susac behind the plate

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:17:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac is catching and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Tuesday, June 30. C Buster Posey is at first base and 1B Brandon Belt moves to left field.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) can help save some cap space at catcher and could be a profitable sleeper play against Latos, who has struggled at home this year. Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is a strong play and has three home runs in 18 career at-bats against Latos. Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is another good option with Latos allowing a slash line of .311/.352/.496 against left-handed hitters in 2015.

Giants | Brandon Belt in lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:09:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Sunday, June 28, batting fifth. C/1B Buster Posey, who started the last two games at first base, will start behind the plate and hit cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is hitting .313 against Rockies pitching this season and is 2-for-7 (.286) in his career against Kendrick. However, his .195 average during the month of June may be a reason to avoid using him in FantasyScore today. Posey ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is a career .500 hitter against Kendrick in 12 at-bats.

Giants | Gregor Blanco in left field Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:48:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is starting in left field and batting eighth against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, Sept. 27. OF/1B Brandon Belt is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting .368 over the last seven days and is batting .352 at home this season. He is worth considering in FantasyScore as a low-cost outfield option. Belt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has had a June he'd like to forget, batting just .195 with two homers and 10 RBIs.

Giants | Brandon Belt has success vs. Ian Kennedy

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:56:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt has a .357 batting average with two doubles and two home runs over 27 career at-bats against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is a mid- to low-end first base option in the majority of fantasy formats, but his past success against Kennedy is intriguing. Still, it doesn't guarantee Belt will perform well Wednesday. View Belt as a viable FantasyScore option, but he should be confused with a lineup building block.

Giants | Nori Aoki out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 14:22:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. OF Justin Maxwell is in the lineup and batting sixth. Aoki's injury also has moved 1B Brandon Belt to left field and C Buster Posey to first base. C Andrew Susac is catching.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be removed from your lineup until his ankle has healed. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit a two-run homer Saturday so he has demonstrated some pop and could make a cheaper replacement for your lineup.
