Strikeout rate up 10% over his career norms ... and a HR/FB rate that's up 20% over career norms.

Can you say selling out for power?  His 21% barrel rate has him basically tied for first with Ohtani (21.3%) in that category so far this year.

Turns out there was a "fair chance" the Rox would score *6* in the bottom of the 7th in the 2nd game ... FTW! :-)

What's your definition of "fair chance"?  It's only a 7-inning game ... at Coors, I get it ...

A homer, five RBI in the first inning in Colorado. Giants up 10-0 now, but there's a fair chance this isn't over.

Brandon Belt (1B) SF - Mar. 01

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=763902

Belt (heel) is dealing with a non-COVID illness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Belt felt better Monday than he had in recent days but is still lacking energy. He's also spending the spring recovering from October heel surgery. That procedure was already expected to make his readiness for Opening Day uncertain, and losing a few days to illness certainly doesn't help in that regard. If he does wind up making a trip to the injured list to start the season, infield at-bats could open up for Wilmer Flores, Darin Ruf or Donovan Solano.

Brandon Belt (1B) SF - Feb. 04

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=762672

Belt (heel) may not be ready for Opening Day, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Belt underwent heel surgery in October, and Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said Thursday that it wasn't a certainty that he would be ready for Opening Day. If he'd be forced to miss time to begin the season, Tommy La Stella should shift to first base. Belt appeared in 51 games for the Giants last year and posted a career-best .309/.425/.591 slash line with nine home runs and 30 RBI.
