San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Belt still an unknown

When the San Francisco Giants called up first baseman, Brandon Belt, in 2011, they were calling up one of the top prospects in baseball. It’s not fair to say that Belt has been a bust, he has had some ups-and-downs in his career however. The best way to describe Belt’s Major League career is that you can’t really describe it.
