Giants' GM: 'We need a bust-out season from' Brandon Belt
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Giants general manager Brian Sabean said the club needs "a bust-out season from" first baseman Brandon Belt, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
The 26-year-old came into 2014 poised to have a big season, but injuries got in the way. Belt was limited to just 61 games last season due to a thumb injury and complications with a concussion. He hit .243/.306/.449 over 214 at-bats.
Belt is expected to hit in the middle of the order this season, and that should lead to higher expectations. For what it's worth, Sabean thinks Belt can handle it. "He's capable of it, and he might be poised to do it," he said.
Giants avoid arbitration with Brandon Belt
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) The Giants were able to avoid arbitration with first baseman Brandon Belt after they agreed to a one-year, $3.6 million contract, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Belt originally filed for $4.5 million in arbitration, while the Giants countered with $3 million. In 2014, Belt hit .243 with 12 home runs and 27 RBI.
Report: Giants swap arbitration figures with Belt, Blanco
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt has filed for $4.5 million in arbitration while outfielder Gregor Blanco has filed for $4 million, 16 WAPT Sports reports.
The team has offered Belt $3 million and Blanco $3.3 million. Belt is in his first year of arbitration eligibility while Blanco is eligible for arbitration for a second year.
|2014 Summary: Injuries took a huge toll on Brandon Belt in 2014. He missed most of the first half with a fractured left thumb and then made two separate trips to the 7-day concussion DL in the second half. When Belt did play, he provided plenty of power, blasting 12 home runs in 61 games, but strikeouts (30 percent of at-bats) and popups (11 percent of hit balls) were issues. Belt batted just .243 and got on base at a .306 clip.|
Playing time status: Belt is reportedly fully recovered from his concussion and hit well upon his return from his second stint on the 7-day DL. He will resume his role as the Giants' full-time first baseman this season.
2015 Outlook: He may not be the batting average and on-base threat he once promised to be, but Belt's growing power makes him worthy of a mid-round pick in standard mixed leagues. He appears primed for his first 20-plus home run season, and 30 homers isn't out of reach either.
