Sabean on 1B Brandon Belt: “He’s got everybody talking inside and outside the organization as a guy who looks like he could be ready.”
No decision on Belt has been made, Sabean cautioned. But he clearly believes there’s a chance Belt starts at 1B on opening day..
I have a feeling the decision on Belt will go down to the final days, but he’ll end up in Fresno when all is said and done (excluding an injury). The Giants just have too many pieces out of options/immovable contracts to add another position player to the mix right now, despite the fact he’s had a solid spring.
Come mid-season though, assuming all goes well for Belt in Grizzly orange, he’ll be drawing comparisons similar to those of Buster Posey. Dude has the tools to be an impact player right off the bat, no pun intended.
