1B,DH - SF - IL60
Brandon Belt will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Saturday. He will miss the rest of the season.
Belt had been to multiple doctors regarding his knee, and the conclusion was ultimately to have surgery. Belt has had a rough season dealing with knee issues and hitting just .213/.326/.350 in 78 games. The 34-year-old's future may be in question as a free agent after this season.
Brandon Belt had a second opinion on his knee today, which led to a recommendation for surgery.
Belt is expected to decide within the next day whether to have the surgery on his knee. Belt has had a disappointing season, likely due to the constant knee pain. Belt has eight home runs and a .213 batting average in 298 plate appearances this season.
Giants 1B Brandon Belt is dealing with knee inflammation and was placed on the 10-day IL Wednesday.
While speaking to the press Tuesday, Belt appeared to hint that his knee problems could derail his career. A day later he was placed on the injured list. He's not worth holding onto unless you have a spare IL spot on your roster.
Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Brewers.
Belt wrapped up his first half on fire, going 11-for-21 (.524) with three homers and six RBIs in his last seven games played. The veteran has not been a reliable fantasy option for the vast majority of the season, but this is a great sign heading into the break. We'll see if he can keep up this consistency when the Giants return to action on Thursday.
Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a single and two total runs scored in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Belt has been on fire as of late, going 8-for-17 (.471) with two homers and four runs scored in his last seven games played. The first baseman has also tallied a hit in his last four games after struggling for the majority of June. This is a great sign of consistency, but he'll need to keep it up going forward to be considered as a fantasy starter.
