Meet the New Guys: Brandon Belt, Trayvon Robinson

Brandon Belt is the Giants 1B of the future, at least if you ask several prospect pudits. He’s excelled at AA and received a promotion to AAA Fresno, and doesn’t seem to be stopping. He hit .383 with 9 homers and 17 steals at High-A San Jose to start the season, was promoted to AA Richmond after 77 games, where he hit .337 with 9 homers in only 46 games.

Rumors are swirling that the suddenly cost-conscious Dodgers will bring up CF Trayvon Robinson from AA Chattanooga if OF Manny Ramirez goes on the DL again or is traded at the deadline. Robinson batted .368/.445/.442 in June while focusing more on contact than power. Add to that 26 steals and a .400 on-base percentage, and that’s something.
