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.

Roster Moves – Week 16 – July 20th, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 1B Brandon Belt, AA Giants – ($3 bid) Reserve
  • OF Trayvon Robinson, AA Dodgers – ($2 bid) Reserve


  • SS Cristian Guzman
  • OF Roger Bernadina (to UT)
  • SP Edinson Volquez


  • SS Jonathan Herrera
  • 3B Casey Blake (from UT)
  • SP Ian Kennedy


  • SP Chris Volstad
  • SP John Ely


  • Volquez made his debut on Saturday night in his return from Tommy John surgery, going 6 innings, with 1 earned run, 3 hits, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts over 96 pitches against the Rockies.  I’d say he’s back, but he may have some wildness.
  • I bid $16 for new Atlanta SS Alex Gonzalez.  The bidding was as follows: $100 Cover Zero, $79 Misogynistic Padres, $53 X-Men, $16 AaRr.  I should have known beforehand, as Steve was making Gonzalez available prior to the FAAB run ($100 max bid + last place= no tie-breakers)
  • Belt and Robinson were signed as today was the deadline for acquiring players protectable in the minor leagues.
  • Backup bids for Belt and Robinson were former Roadrunner SP Christian Friedrich and Reds SS Zach Cozart
