Belt went 2-for-4 with a home run and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's 7-3 win over Washington.
Belt returned from a stiff neck Sunday, and Tuesday's long ball should quash any concerns regarding his injury. The 30-year-old is batting just .237 (14-for-59) early on, but he has provided eight extra-base hits (four homers) through 18 contests, resulting in a strong .288 isolated power rating. We all know the story with Belt by now; if he can stay away from the injured list, there is plenty of upside in that bat.

Belt will head to the bench for what appears to be a routine breather after starting the past 10 games, going 9-for-35 (.257) with a trio of homers and eight RBI in those appearances. Buster Posey will cover first base in place of Belt, opening up a spot in the lineup for Erik Kratz to start behind the dish.
