Saltzman Says...Breaking News: Brandon Belt makes 25 man roster

Breaking News: Belt makes the Giants!

Brandon Belt has made the Opening Day Roster. To make room on the 40 man roster as well as the 25 man roster, Travis Ishikawa was designated for assignment.  That means the Giants have 10 days to trade him or release him, and only after that decision are they allowed to offer Ishikawa a return to Fresno.  Ishikawa can refuse the demotion and become a free agent.

But today is about the next big rookie to come to China Basin.  Buster Posey lived up to the hype and built off of it.  Now, it's Belt's turn to see if the hype is warranted.
