Brandon Belt To Make Opening Day Roster? Wilson To Open Season On DL

By Bryan Rose

First things first – Brian Wilson will be placed on the 15 day disabled list tomorrow morning, though the move will be retroactive meaning Wilson will be eligible to come off of the disabled list on April 6th in San Diego.

With Wilson being placed on the DL and a roster spot opening up, Scott Ostler of SFGate.com is now reporting that Brandon Belt will indeed break the Opening Day roster:

"We’re breaking the story here first, and possibly inaccurately (what courage!): Brandon Belt will be the Giants ‘ Opening Day first baseman. The Giants haven’t made it official, because it’s their M.O. to play it coy…"

I’m not really sure what to make of it – I really didn’t expect Belt to open the season in San Francisco, but, I’m certainly not opposed to it.

Guess we’ll see in the next few hours…
