Brandon Belt shut down for the season

First baseman Brandon Belt, who has undergone most of his recovery from concussion symptoms in private, ran light sprints and performed agility exercises in short left field at AT&T Park before Wednesday's game.

Fantasy Impact

Belt, who last appeared in a game Aug. 4, won't return this season. However, manager Bruce Bochy welcomed the sight of his increased activity -- "more for his peace of mind as he heads to the offseason." Belt, 29, hit .241/.355/.469 with 18 home runs and 51 RBIs in 104 games this year.

Brandon Belt clobbers his 18th long ball

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run homer, a walk and two runs scored Thursday vs. the A's.

Fantasy Impact

Belt's second-inning homer was his 18th of the year, matching his personal best from two years ago. After managing just one home run in July, he already has two in August as he closes in on his first 20-homer season. The added power has come with a price, as his .242 average would be his lowest since he hit .225 as a rookie in 2011.

Brandon Belt remains steady

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and three runs scored in Tuesday’s 10-4 win over the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact

Belt is now one home-run away from his career high of 18, which was set in 2015. He’s enjoying a power breakout while simultaneously experiencing a downturn in BABIP, recording a .287 mark in 2017 compared to .334 for his career. His average launch angle this season is almost identical to last year’s (20.9 degrees in 2017 vs. 21 degrees in 2016), however, and he has a higher average exit velocity in 2017 than he did in 2016 (88.1 mph vs. 87 mph). Belt has still been productive from a fantasy perspective despite settling for results that haven’t matched his superior performance. With better luck, he could be in store for a great finish.

Brandon Belt (wrist) returns to the lineup

Brandon Belt went 0-for-2 with two walks on Sunday night against the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Belt had missed the previous two games with wrist soreness, but it appears he's fully recovered. While he's had an overall disappointing season, he's on pace for nearly 100 walks and has a respectable .353 OBP.

Brandon Belt hit his 21st double on Monday

Brandon Belt was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored and a walk against the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the doubles, and high walk rate (6th in the NL in walks), Belt is not having his best season. He is still worth rostering, but owners should pick and choose when to start him based upon match ups.
