The San Francisco Giants have been the surprise team of the 2021 MLB season. Projected to miss the playoffs by nearly everyone, as we sit here with less than a week left in the regular season, the Giants have the best record in baseball.

Brandon Belt has been a huge part of this unexpected resurgence in San Francisco. Unfortunately, on Sunday he was hit in the hand with a pitch and X-rays on Monday night revealed he has a fractured left thumb.

As of now the timetable for his return is not yet known. Belt will meet with doctors over the next few days before determining his options.

Belt is slashing .274/.378/.597 this season with a career-high 29 home runs in 97 games.

The Giants currently have +700 odds to win the World Series, the fourth best in the majors, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest MLB odds.
