Belt slashed .280/.321/.560 with two home runs and one stolen base through 10 games before spring training was suspended.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran first baseman has historically been a strong performer in the Cactus League, and that trend continued in 2020. Belt had a career-worst 99 wRC+ in 2019 but is poised for another season starting at first base for the Giants.

Belt is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants will take on left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday, so as has been the case all month, Belt will not be in the lineup with a southpaw on the mound for the opponent. Austin Slater will get the start at first base in Belt's place.

Belt is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Belt has not been a strict platoon player this season -- he has made 28 starts against lefties -- lately manager Bruce Bochy has been turning elsewhere when the Giants face a southpaw. Austin Slater gets the nod at first base in this one.

Belt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Belt went 1-for-6 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Belt got the Giants' offense rolling with his 17th home run of the year in the first inning of a game that would last 15 frames. The 31-year-old overcame his injury woes this season (146 games played), but that has been negated by career lows in batting average (.236) and slugging percentage (.411). That said, Belt has put together a nice little hot streak over his last 10 contests, slashing .342/.405/.632 with seven extra-base hits as he tries to finish the 2019 campaign on a strong note.

Belt went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Friday's 1-0 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The three-hit night, his second in his last five games, accounted for a third of the hits for the Giants in the contest. Belt has gone 8-for-19 with four doubles and a triple in his last five games, raising his season line to .235/.340/.405 in 142 games. He's added 16 homers, 56 RBI and 71 runs scored.

Belt went 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI in Monday's 6-4 loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

This was Belt's second three-hit performance over his last 10 starts. The first baseman has looked a little more like his former self over that span, slashing .263/.349/.526 with six extra-base hits. Belt will have to get hotter than this to restore faith in fantasy owners after spurning them with a .231/.341/.397 slash line overall this season.

Belt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Belt will sit for the second time in the three-game series with the Dodgers bringing a southpaw (Julio Urias) to the hill for the finale. With Belt on the bench, Austin Slater will pick up the start at first base.
