Brandon Belt

Belt is finally being allowed to play consistently, which is giving us a glimpse into what we can look forward to for years to come. At the beginning of the season, it was questioned whether a player like Belt would ever truly reach his potential. But the numbers from last year, and the signing of a contract that will offer great job security has the team looking forward to a great future with the first baseman. It wasn’t always about injuries or the fact that Posey sometimes needed to get out from behind the plate. But t was combination of several factors that have kept Belt from his potential. Belt leads all NL first basemen in batting average (.306), Slugging Percentage (.534), doubles (17), triples (3), and OPS (.952). Rizzo is having a quality season with 15 home runs and 49 RBI’s, but Belt is having a more consistent season and is a quality defender.
