Before I start this post ...
I know ... "spring training stats don't matter." But Brandon Belt is hitting the you-know-what out of the ball right now in the Cactus League and going 9-for-9 isn't something that should be ignored -- even during games that don't count.
Brandon Belt would prefer if the season started earlier this week. He's 9-for-his-last-9 and just smashed a home run off Kyle Hendricks.— Kerry Crowley (@KO_Crowley) March 21, 2019
Now that we got that out of the way ...
Baseball Reference is one of the few sites that has spring training stats, so shout out to them. And this is what Belt is working with as we head into Opening Day.
A .485/.553/.818 line with three home runs and six RBI in 13 games.
Not bad ... not bad at all.
And he seems to be having fun despite a small mishap cutting half of his eyebrow off prior to Photo Day, but who hasn't done that?
