Brandon Belt is showing no improvement

11 Comments

Brandon Belt was hit in the head by a thrown ball last Saturday and is on the disabled list with a concussion. Six days later and he’s not feeling any better. From the Chronicle:

Brandon Belt said he feels no improvement in his concussion symptoms and boarded the team flight unaware of any specific plans to see a specialist in San Francisco, although that is expected to happen.

That’s certainly not encouraging. Nor is the fact that, as Hank Schulman reports, Joe Panik, Marco Scutaro and Ehire Adrianza all are banged up too.

The Giants are a game and a half up on the Dodgers. But the mounting injuries bode ill.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
