News: Belt agreed to a one-year, $3.6 million deal with the Giants on Monday, avoiding arbitration, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.
Impact: Belt does not become a free agent until 2018, so the Giants still have a few more seasons of club control over their starting first baseman. Injuries ruined a chance of him building significantly off a strong 2013 season, but he still managed to hit 12 homers in just 235 plate appearances, suggesting a 20-homer campaign could be coming in 2015.

Impact: Belt hit .308 with two RBIs in the World Series after missing time over the final 2 1/2 months with a concussion. He played in only 61 regular-season games, batting .243 with 12 homers and 27 RBIs.
