Brandon Belt raises spring average to .395

Brandon Belt has been looking good this spring. He has a .500 OBP and a .737 SLG to go along with his .395 batting average.

Fantasy Impact

Belt could be a nice breakout player. Last year was going to be his best year by far until he got beaned and missed the last half season with a concussion.

Brandon Belt looking good

Brandon Belt hit his second homer and doubled Saturday to raise his spring average to .440.

Fantasy Impact

Belt is batting second for the Giants this year and looking for a breakout year. He could be a nice value pick late in drafts.

Brandon Belt likely to bat in the second spot in the order this year

This spring, Giants manager Bruce Bochy appears to have Brandon Belt settled in as the No. 2 hitter, following leadoff man Joe Panik. On Sunday, Belt looked his typical self. He was 1-for-2 with a double and drew a walk. He's now sitting at .375 batting average for the spring.

Fantasy Impact

Belt is trending toward becoming a quiet sleeper in fantasy leagues. He looks destined for a good year near the top of the order and you can get him in many leagues with your very last pick. Keep him in mind in any deep-league draft.

Brandon Belt goes 3-for-3 Tuesday

Brandon Belt went 3-for-3 Tuesday to raise his spring average to .500. He had three singles off three different pitchers and stole a base.

Fantasy Impact

Belt seems destined to hit better this year. Last year he was on his way to the biggest home run total of his career when a concussion put him out for most of the second half of the year. Barring a beaning, Belt looks like a nice sleeper.

Brandon Belt is ready for spring

Brandon Belt has never hit 20 home runs in six full major league years. This year, I've seen him predicted to hit as high as 30. He will not hit 30. Belt has the tools to hit 30 but lefties at AT&T Park, who are not named Barry Bonds, will not be hitting 30 HRs. AT&T is the hardest park to hit homers and it's quite a bit harder for lefties to go yard. Belt has also had four concussions in the past four years. That has been largely due to being unlucky, but he is more susceptible to injury than some. He was having perhaps his best power year last year with 18 home runs in a bit over the first half of the season, but he missed the second half. I'd wager this year he will pass 20 homers for the first time, but 30 is quite a stretch.

Fantasy Impact

Belt is undervalued in most fantasy leagues. His average draft selection is 301 at NFBC. He has an on-base percentage of over .350 and an on-base plus slugging around .850. He'll hit 20-25 HRs this year.
