Giants place Brandon Belt back on 7-day concussion disabled list
The Giants have placed first baseman Brandon Belt back on the 7-day concussion disabled list, the team announced. He has been having recurring concussion symptoms.
Belt, 26, missed two weeks with a concussion late last month. He returned last weekend, played four full games, then had to be removed from Wednesday’s game with headaches. Belt did not play Thursday.
Needless to say, the Giants have to play it carefully with their first baseman if his symptoms have returned. Brain injuries are not something to take lightly. I’m sure they will be extra careful now.
Belt is hitting .237/.296/.446 (110 OPS+) with 11 home runs in 51 games this year. He also missed time with a broken thumb after being hit by a pitch. Belt broke out with a 140 OPS+ and 17 homers last year.
With Belt out, the Giants figure to play Mike Morse at first base most of the time.

Brandon Belt goes to the DL due to a concussion.
*UPDATE, 1:25 p.m.: Brandon Belt has a concussion and will go on the disabled list, manager Bruce Bochy just said. Still to be decided is whether Belt will go on the seven-day concussion DL or the 15-day DL. The Giants need paperwork approval to use the shorter one.
Bochy said the plan is to have corner infielder Adam Duvall return from Fresno to replace Belt on the active roster ahead of Monday night’s game in Philadelphia.
Thus, after nearly two months off with a broken thumb, Belt’s active-roster time included 11 games. He went 6-for-36 with a homer. His last swing was an RBI double.
Belt will be able to fly with the team to Philly this afternoon.

Are you effing kidding me? Belt got hit on the hand tonight and he’s not going to be at Brandon Weekend. ICING on the cake of sh*t!
Update: He went yard during his first AB then got hit on the right hand during his next one. They showed him on first so I guess it’s all good.

Ninety-percent of my conversations I’m a genius, 1 percent I’m an idiot. But everybody likes to change it around to make me out to be 99 percent idiot. I’m a little goofy. I’ll admit it. I’ll say goofy stuff. But if you say one wrong thing in a baseball clubhouse, you get called an idiot for the rest of your life.

Best thing I learned today. Belt, age 8, broke a neighbor’s mailbox with his head in a bike crash, and had to pay for new mailbox #SFGiants

@mccoveychron Is it just me, or does Belt’s dad look somewhat like another authority figure in his life? #Beltchy
