Brandon Belt, who underwent heel surgery in October, may not be ready by spring according to the Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi.
Zaidi said it was too early to tell if the first baseman would be ready or not. Belt underwent surgery in October to remove a bone spur in his heel; the same issue caused him to have a late start to the 2020 season. We'll obviously know more about his status as we get closer to spring.
Brandon Belt underwent surgery to remove a bone spur in his heel.
Belt had a late start to the 2020 season due to a heel injury but he went on to have an impressive year. The 32-year-old hit .309 with nine homers, 30 RBI, and a 1.016 OPS in 15 games. It's unclear how long his rehab is going to be, but one would figure Belt has a good shot at being ready to go come spring training.
