News: Belt had three hits Tuesday. Impact: Belt is off to a strong start with a .919 OPS.(STATS, 12:06pm)
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Belt collected three hits, including a double and an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers. Impact: Belt has really cooled off over the past week after going on a power surge to start the season. He has started to look a little bit more like the patient, doubles-power player we were familiar with over his past five games (two doubles, two walks). His overall numbers (.298, five homers, 10 RBI) still look great and he should easily surpass his totals from 2013 as long as he stays healthy.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Belt collected two more hits and another homer in Tuesday's win over Arizona. Impact: After hitting 17 homers all of last season, Belt already has five in 2014. Fantasy owners may want to think about selling high.(STATS, 9:59pm)
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Belt collected two hits, including his fifth home run of the season in Tuesday's win over Arizona. Impact: Belt - for a lack of a better term - continues to belt the ball in early in the season. Through eight games in April, Belt is hitting .343 with five homers and nine RBI. The usually patient hitter has yet to draw a walk this season, but you won't hear his owners complaining if his aggressive approach is resulting in more long balls. Belt looks well on his way to finally having that breakout campaign many have been predicting for several years.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Belt was 2 for 4 with his fourth homer of the season in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers. Impact: It remains to be seen if Belt can continue to produce anywhere close to this level over a larger sample size, but owners are certainly enjoying his torrid start. He's hitting .323 with seven RBIs in as many games.(STATS, 6:16pm)
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Belt kept his red-hot start going Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a solo shot in the loss to the Dodgers. Impact: Belt continues to rake this season after having an ice-cold April in 2013 (.235 with two home runs). If this April is any sign of things to come, then Belt should take a big step forward after an already promising 2013 season.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Belt hit a solo homer in Thursday's 8-5 win at Arizona. Impact: Belt has already hit three home runs this year after hitting just 17 last year. His power has progressed each year in the majors, so a breakout in 2014 is more than possible.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Belt hit a three-run homer in the first inning Tuesday night but the Giants fell 5-4 in Arizona. Impact: Belt's home run was his second in as many games this season. He's also 5 for 9 with four RBIs and four strikeouts.(STATS, 4:19pm)
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Belt went yard for the second time in two games Tuesday, but his three-run homer wasn't enough as the Giants were beat 5-4 by Arizona. Impact: Just two games into the season, the fourth-year big leaguer is well on his way to eclipsing his career high of 17 home runs set last year. Of course, being able to consistently hit 90+ mph pitching on a daily basis for power is easier said than done, but with five hits and four RBI thus far, Belt is off to an impressive start.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Belt went 3 for 5 with three runs scored in his fantasy opener Monday. Impact: Belt next faces Wade Miley on Tuesday so proceed with caution.(STATS, 5:57pm)
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Belt will bat sixth Tuesday against Diamondbacks left-hander Wade Miley. Impact: Manager Bruce Bochy will drop Belt to sixth against a lefty Tuesday, down from the No. 2 hole he filled against right-hander Brandon McCarthy on Opening Day. It's a trend that figures to stick, at least for the first several weeks of the season, but Belt hit a respectable .261/.318/.437 against southpaws last year and will likely be in the lineup on close to an everyday basis.(RotoWire, )
