(7/24/14) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was cleared to fly with the team back to San Francisco following the conclusion of their series in Philadelphia Thursday, CSNBayArea.com reports.

|Brandon Belt set for more tests |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) The Giants are growing more concerned with first baseman Brandon Belt, who wasn't feeling much better Wednesday and had to be sent back to the hotel, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Belt is scheduled to undergo further tests in San Franicsco as he continues to deal with a concussion. He has ben sidelined since Saturday.
|It seemed like for the longest time the Giants looked crazy for sticking with Brandon Belt, as the young first baseman struggled to find his footing in the majors. Well, it seems the Giants' perseverance is paying off. Belt had his best season as a major leaguer in 2013, leading many to speculate he could be in for a breakout season in 2014. He was having another horrendous campaign in 2013 before he finally put his pride aside and took to coaching. Belt changed his grip on the bat and stood farther back in the box, leading to great results. After hitting .255 with a .425 slugging percentage through July, Belt blew up over the final two months, batting .346 with a .576 slugging percentage, .984 OPS, three triples, seven home runs, 17 doubles and 28 RBI in his last 52 games. Those numbers mirrored the production he had in the minors, when he hit .343 with a .596 slugging percentage in 189 games. Belt's late-season surge is not enough to thrust him into the mix as a top 12 Fantasy first baseman, but he's a mid-round Fantasy pick with upside.
