Belt, who was in his second stint on the DL, returns to a San Francisco lineup that desperately needs a consistent bat.
Of course, the Giants are hoping that he can return to old form as he hit six home runs in April, but since has had just two home runs. And with GM Brian Sabean not making any moves at the trade deadline, there is no doubt he is hoping for Belt to have a strong second half.
That being said, San Francisco sits just two and a half games back of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West and are tied for first in the Wild Card hunt with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The race will likely come down to the last couple weeks, but the Giants need to start winning now if they want a chance to be playing in October.
