Latest Update Giants have tendered contracts to all six arbitration-eligible players Tue Dec, 02, 11:07 PM
Has a great approach to the plate, patience and plenty of power potential. Can run pretty well and is versatile enough to play both first base and left field.
Flaws: : Could stand to be a bit more aggressive at the dish, so as to not allow pitchers to dictate at-bats as often. Isn't great defensively in the outfield. Is inconsistent.
The Giants are hoping that Brandon Belt stays healthy and has that true breakout season in 2015. The other four hitters are either underwhelming, role-players, or both. Yusmeiro Petit could see a role similar to the one he had in 2014 when he pitched out of the bullpen for a good chunk of the season but moved to the rotation down the stretch.Analyst: David Kerr
Belt is raking this postseason, to a clip of .357. The middle of the Giants' order continues to hit, and Belt is a big reason for their 2-1 series lead. Belt missed some time this year due to a thumb injury, and a concussion, but the Giants are happy to have him here in the postseason.Analyst: Colby Conway
After going 2-for-4 with one RBI in the Giants win in Game 1, it looked like a long, disappointing night for Belt as he stepped into the box in the top of the 18th 0-for-6 with two strikeouts. But Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark threw one right into Belt's wheelhouse and the slugger took him deep for the game-winner. Should the Giants go on and win the NL pennant this year, Belt's home run is going to go down as quite a historic moment for these playoffs. He may have just swung the momentum too far from the Nationals now.Analyst: Howard Bender
Belt had a nice game Friday, going 2-4 with an RBI single. While his overall numbers are depressed due to injuries, he's had red-hot streaks this season and the Giants will have to hope that's the case for October.Analyst: Ben Diamond
