Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was struck in the head by a thrown ball during batting practice on Saturday and now Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports that he is headed to the disabled list. It’s not clear yet whether that will be the 15-day disabled list, or the new 7-day disabled list that is specifically designed for players displaying concussion symptoms. A decision will be made on that end Monday, when the Giants call up Adam Duvall from Triple-A Fresno to help out at first base.

Duvall has hit .303/.361/.626 with 26 home runs and 79 RBI in 78 games this season at the Triple-A level. He made his major league debut in June.

    With Belt’s injuries this season. I bet the Giants really wish they hadn’t sold Brett Pill to a Korean team.

    Would there be any advantage at all to using the 15 day DL? Couldn’t they just put him on the 7 day, and if he takes longer than 7 days, fine, but it keeps open the option of him returning before 15 days. No?
