I don't think a "breakout" to the tune of 30 home runs and 15 steals is in order, but I think an average hovering between .280-.300 and 23 home runs with 10 steals is certainly reasonable. Combine that with run totals approaching 100 and an RBI number that should remain decent for a second hitter, and you will have a guy you were happy to have drafted way back in March. - Ben Duronio

Belt's start is going to cause some to push him extremely higher up the rankings.  Let's not forget that his power surge came in Arizona, someplace he loves to hit. It's encouraging, but it also wouldn't be a surprise to see him slide significantly. Temper expectations and don't be surprised if this is his high water mark. - Eric Stashin

His tighter mechanics should allow him to pull the ball with more vim and vigor. His home ballpark is a limitation, but about to turn 26, this could finally be his breakout power year. - Brad Evans

It is simply hard to imagine him blossoming into a 30+ HR threat. In the Rotoprofessor 2014 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide we projected him for 20 HR and that remains a fair expectation. Until he proves that he consistently hit the ball out in his home ballpark, counting on more feels like a mistake. - Eric Stashin

His breakout looks real, and to me, he's as good a bet as Anthony Rizzo , a better one than Matt Adams (because it happened in more playing time), and doesn't carry the BA downside of other players in their draft range. - Alex McCrum
