San Francisco Giants Deal with Brandon Belt Official

Reported late last night, the Giants' deal with first baseman Brandon Belt has been made official

UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the deal is worth $79 million over the next six years

Just after the Giants come-from-behind win against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, the team announced that they had an agreement with first baseman Brandon Belt. The six-year contract will run through 2021 and eat up Belt's two remaining years of arbitration. 

Making his debut in the orange and black in 2011, Belt has collected two World Series rings (2012, 2014) in his tenure with San Francisco. He is a career .271 hitter with a .348 on-base percentage and is batting .278 with three doubles through five games in 2016. 

His 32 career postseason starts at first base are the most in Giants franchise history. One of those games stands out among the rest--one that including in the left-hander securing Game Two of the 2014 NLDS with a home run in the top of the 18th in Washington. 

Belt is just days away from his 28th birthday.
