San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was scheduled to have his arbitration hearing with the Giants today, but at the last minute the two sides agreed to a $6.2 million contract for 2016.
Belt originally asked the for $7.5 million, and the Giants countered with $5.3 million. It was good to see that the Giants and Belt were able to agree on a compromise that was $1.3 million less than what he wanted, and .9 more than the Giants were going to give him.
Belt, who will turn 28 in April, batted .280/.356/.478 with 18 home runs and 88 runs batted in over 137 games for the Giants in 2015. He figures to build on this season in 2016.
