Brandon Belt has so far failed to live up to high expectations in his first two seasons with the San Francisco Giants, hitting only .259 in his first 598 big league at-bats and only knocking seven balls out of the park.
Belt needs to find his swing again that made him so successful in his last two minor league seasons.
Over three levels in 2010, Brandon showed off his tremendous potential by batting .352/.455/.620, blasting 23 home runs and adding 22 stolen bases. He followed that up by hitting .309/.448/.527 in 49 minor league games in 2011.
He was then called up and has not been able to put it all together at the major league level.
A few signs that Belt can be successful is his patience at that plate, walking in 11.4 percent of his at-bats, and that he tends to hit the ball hard as he finished last season with a 23 percent line-drive percentage.
At only 24 years old, Belt is still worth keeping an eye on in this upcoming fantasy baseball season. He consistently hits the ball hard, and if he can tap into some of the power potential he showed in the minor leagues, he could become a quality fantasy first baseman.
