UPDATES & NEWS
Giants have officially placed Brandon Belt on the disabled list with a broken thumb.
Belt will be out 6 weeks, most likely, although he is meeting with a specialist next week and that will give us a better idea about the length of his absence from the Giants' lineup. His loss is huge, with not much else in the lineup to replace his power numbers. Although Posey is next on the depth chart at 1B, expect Hector Sanchez and Mike Morse to fill in while Belt recovers. Also, be aware that thumb injuries tend to linger and will undoubtedly affect his ability to hit for power even when he comes back.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
