Giants First Baseman To Miss Time

The San Francisco Giants have been dealing with the injury bug all season, and it is only continuing. This time, Brandon Belt has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right knee injury. 

Belt is an important part of the Giants' lineup, so his absence will certainly be noticeable. Yet, he is off to a little bit of a slow start this year, as he has four home runs, 11 RBIs, and a .228 batting average. Last season he showed exactly what he is capable of, though, as he had a career-high 29 home runs and 59 RBIs in just 97 games.

With the Giants looking to catch up to the Dodgers and Padres in the AL West standings, Belt's injury definitely isn't ideal. Let's see if the veteran can return as soon as this 10-day IL stint passes.
