Player Notes
Brandon Belt is not in the Giants starting lineup for Friday's game against the Angels.

Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy continues to sit Belt regularly against left-handed pitching, and with C.J. Wilson on the hill on Friday he'll utilize Buster Posey at first base with Andrew Susac doing the catching. This, despite the fact, that Belt sports a career .264/.326/.438 slash against southpaws.

Brandon Belt is absent from the Giants' lineup for the third straight day Monday.

Advice: It's bad timing with the club facing three straight left-handers, but it's discouraging that manager Bruce Bochy has no faith in Belt's ability versus southpaws. His career OPS against lefties (.771) is not much lower than it is versus righties (.790), but Bochy is, in effect, platooning Belt with Andrew Susac. Buster Posey is at first base again Monday, while Susac is behind the plate.

Brandon Belt is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Advice: It's the second straight game he's been benched versus a left-hander, as the club is going with Buster Posey at first base and Andrew Susac at catcher. Brandon Crawford is also sitting out, with Joaquin Arias handling shortstop.

Brandon Belt hit an RBI double and finished a perfect 3-for-3 in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

Advice: The run-scoring double off of Eddie Butler in the fifth inning was Belt's first of the season. Belt, who hit 12 home runs last season, is still searching for a home run in 2015. After a horrible start to April, he's begun to find his groove. His current five-game hitting streak has moved his average from .077 to a slightly more respectable .238. We like Belt as a player, but he'll need to keep this hot streak going before he can be deployed with confidence in mixed leagues.
