Last Season: .225/.306/.412, 63 games played
Belt is expected to split time in left field and at first base. That still remains to be seen as Aubrey Huff was out of shape last season, and is expected to be motivated and fit going into training camp.
The 1B job should be Belt's for several reasons. First of all, it is likely that the Giants have nothing to gain by playing Huff anyways. The guy is 34 and it's highly unlikely he ever comes close to his 2010 form again.
Second, Belt played in 63 games, almost a third of Huff's playing time last season, 150 games. During that time, Belt had a higher SLG percentage, the same OBP, and a slightly lower batting average, all while he was being shuffled back and forth between the minors and big leagues.
The argument could be made, that with a third of Huff's playing time, Belt already outperformed him, so fans can only imagine what a full season of Brandon Belt would be like.
Third, this guy's power is just starting to develop. .412 SLG in limited, inconsistent time in the majors with 9 home runs last year, while Huff had 12 home runs the whole year.
The big fly is a specialty of Belt's, and I fully expect him to become a 20+ home run hitter as he gets more playing time and development.
In addition to being a power hitter, Belt is also a patient power hitter, something the Giants could always use more of.
