Giants | Brandon Belt sitting against lefty

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:15:24 -0700

Giants | Brandon Belt out until Monday?

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:40:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (groin) might not return until the team's home opener Monday, April 13, but manager Bruce Bochy isn't ruling out using Belt in the lineup before then if he continues to progress. Belt has progressed from swinging off a tee to hitting off a machine. Bochy is looking at using 2B Matt Duffy at first base Saturday, April 11. C Buster Posey will start at first Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: You should avoid Belt ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) entirely this weekend at FantasyScore to be on the safe side. Joaquin Arias ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Duffy are not recommended plays in daily games against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

Giants | Brandon Belt remains out

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:23:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (groin) remains out of the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Thursday, April 9. INF Joaquin Arias is starting at first base and hitting eighth in Belt's absence.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) could return to the starting lineup this weekend in San Diego, so keep an eye on his progress. Arias ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is more of a defensive specialist, so he likely won't offer you much in daily games.
