Fantasy Impact: Belt, who turns 27 in April, will serve as the Giants' everyday first baseman next year. Injuries caused Belt to miss over 100 games last season. He started off hot, but tailed off rapidly before injuries stole his season. He's poised to be a solid corner infielder or utility option in standard-sized leagues, and he figures to improve on his .243/.306/.449 line from 2014.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't too surprising, as Belt is generally considered to be the future of the Giants at first. Hand injuries and concussions caused Belt to miss over 100 games in 2014. In the 61 he played, he posted a .243/.306/.449 line with 12 home runs. If Belt can stay healthy, he'll be a corner infielder or utility option in most leagues.
