Brandon Belt 1B SF 5 Days

Belt (concussion) has not been ruled out for the rest of the season, according to manager Bruce Bochy, the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea reports.

This obviously doesn't tell us much, but we hadn't heard anything on Belt's progress in almost a week, so it was worth noting that there's still a chance he'll play again during the regular season, although there's no timetable for his return.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he's hoping Belt (concussion) can return in September, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After Belt's concussion symptoms resurfaced earlier the month in just his fifth game back from the DL, the Giants wasted little time in shutting the 26-year-old back down. He has been ruled out for at least 2-to-3 more weeks following a recent visit to a specialist, and while Bochy is hoping to get him back to help the team make a postseason push, it sounds like a return this season for Belt may not be a sure thing.

Belt (concussion) will miss at least 2-to-3 more weeks, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Unfortunately, a visit to a concussion specialist did not yield positive results, as Belt has been ruled out of action until at least early September. His symptoms resurfaced in his fifth game back after initially suffering the injury July 19. Adam Duvall, Travis Ishikawa, Mike Morse and Buster Posey (hip) will likely all factor in at first base until Belt returns.

Belt will visit a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh next week, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Belt was forced back onto the 7-day DL last week as a result of recurring concussion symptoms, and at this point, a move to the 15-day DL appears inevitable. He will travel to Pittsburgh when the Giants go to Chicago on Tuesday, and perhaps the visit will yield a potential timetable for his return. Adam Duvall is making his fourth straight start at first base Friday.

Belt was placed back on the 7-day concussion DL on Friday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After reporting a headache during Wednesday's game, Belt was lifted and examined by a Brewers' team doctor, who said he did not believe it was related to the concussion Belt suffered late last month. However, upon further evaluation, Belt has been diagnosed with recurring concussion symptoms, and he'll be forced back on the 7-day DL as a result. Matt Duffy was recalled in the corresponding move, but look for Mike Morse to man first base in Belt's absence.

Belt was removed from Wednesday's game with headaches, but the Brewers' team doctor checked him and does not believes the headaches were related to the concussion he suffered last month, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Belt is sitting Thursday, per the recommendation of head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner, but it seems the headaches were not the result of lingering concussion symptoms. It's a bit disconcerting nonetheless, though it sounds like Belt has a good chance of returning to the lineup Friday.

Belt is out of the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Following an 0-for-5, four-strikeout performance Wednesday, Belt will sit as Buster Posey takes over at first base in Thursday's series finale. Andrew Susac will step in behind the plate to catch starter Jake Peavy. In five games since returning from a concussion, Belt has gone 4-for-21 (.190 average) with a homer and a double.

Belt passed a concussion test Monday, clearing the way for him to resume swinging a bat Tuesday. He'll incorporate additional activities as the week goes one before playing in games by the weekend. The first baseman has been out of action since July 19.

Brandon Belt (concussion) passed a concussion test Monday.

He could resume baseball activities as soon as Monday. It's obviously great news for the Giants, as Belt should rejoin the lineup in short order now that his post-concussion symptoms appear to be behind him. The first baseman has been out of action since July 19.

Brandon Belt (head) is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms and has yet to be cleared for baseball activity.

Belt is scheduled to see a specialist on Sunday, who will hopefully provide a clearer picture of what's going on and a timeline for his return. Adam Duvall will continue to see the bulk of the action at first base while he's sidelined.
