The Giants have lost four straight games for the second time in May. They’re now 2-6 against the Padres and Dodgers combined. Not even Alex Wood, the stopper, could fend off a three-game sweep at home to San Diego. The team’s biggest life preserver has also fallen overboard, as...

Brandon Belt headed to injured list

In the middle of the first inning on Sunday, the Giants announced that they’ve placed first baseman Brandon Belt on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation. The move is retroactive to May 19, meaning Belt can return on May 29 at the earliest. Before the game, manager Gabe Kapler said he considered Belt “day-to-day.”

Brandon Belt not in Sunday’s starting lineup, considered day-to-day

Brandon Belt was scratched from Saturday’s lineup and wasn’t ever included in Sunday’s starting nine. Belt, who got his right knee drained Friday, is considered day-to-day, manager Gabe Kapler said. The 34-year-old first baseman has dealt with knee issues in the past, but this specific ailment isn’t considered too serious. But it is holding Belt out Sunday as the Giants try to fend off a sweep from San Diego.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Returns to IL

The Giants moved Belt to the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Padres with right knee inflammation. Belt didn't play in either of the Giants' first two games of the weekend before the team elected to place him on the IL for the second time this season, after he was previously on the COVID-19-related IL. The Giants will deactivate Belt with the hope that the swelling in his right knee subsides over the next week and allows him to return after a minimum-length or near-minimum stay on the shelf. Darin Ruf and Wilmer Flores will likely see most of the work at first base while Belt is on the IL.

Brandon Belt Is In On The Joke

I also crossposted this article to Medium, because it's long and because why not; you can find that here if you prefer. The joke, of course—at least in the beginning—was that Brandon Belt was not The Guy. This is because in 2021 and more or less the full...

Giants' Brandon Belt: Not in Friday's lineup

Giants' Brandon Belt: Records first steal

Belt went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Rockies. Belt has now gone 3-for-8 in two games since he returned from neck stiffness. The first baseman also showed off a little speed with his first stolen base of the year. He hasn't attempted more than seven steals in any of the last six years, so he shouldn't be expected to contribute much in that area. The 34-year-old is slashing .253/.387/.467 with four home runs, 11 RBI and 12 runs scored through 92 plate appearances.

Giants' Brandon Belt: Good to go Tuesday

Belt (neck) is starting at first base and batting second Tuesday against the Rockies, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports. Belt was listed in the lineup each of the past two days before ultimately being scratched with neck stiffness, and he's once again in the starting nine. Assuming the 34-year-old actually plays Tuesday, it will be only his second appearance since being activated off the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.
