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.

Giants | Brandon Belt to play some outfield?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:27:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is being discussed as an option to play the outfield in the absence of OF Hunter Pence (arm) and OF Angel Pagan (back), according to manager Bruce Bochy. If Belt plays in the outfield, it opens the possibility for C Buster Posey to play more first base. Backup Cs Hector Sanchez and Andrew Susac would get more time with Posey at first. Other outfield options include 1B Travis Ishikawa, OF Juan Perez, OF Justin Maxwell, INF Matt Duffy and 3B Adam Duvall.

Fantasy Tip: Belt is already a middle-round breakout candidate, and adding outfield eligibility would only further enhance his fantasy value.
