Brandon Belt is making progress from his concussion, but Hector Sanchez needs more time

Some encouraging news and some less-than-good news for the Giants this evening.

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com passes along word that first baseman Brandon Belt passed a concussion test and could begin working out today. Meanwhile, catcher Hector Sanchez failed his and will now have to wait another three or four days.

Belt suffered his concussion after he was hit in the face by a thrown ball during batting practice last Saturday. He wasn’t feeling any improvement as of a few days ago, so today is an important step in the right direction. The 26-year-old has already missed two months this season due to a broken thumb, but he could be a major contributor down the stretch if he can stay on the field.

Sanchez landed on the 7-day concussion disabled list after he was hit in the mask by a foul tip on Friday. The Giants are currently going with rookie Andrew Susac as Buster Posey‘s backup catcher.

    Are Colombian women really that hot?

    No, all the hotties are down here in Charleston!

    Buster Posey is scheduling a meeting with the commissioner as we speak, in an effort to outlaw foul tips

    Doesn’t ripping on Posey get old? And, beside the point. Unless you are named Bench, Berra, Cochrane, or Munson.

    Now, if and when Pagan and second-baseman-of-some-sort show up, they might actually win again.

      Pagan is done as an everyday player, same as Scutaro.
