Brandon Belt has been fully cleared to resume all baseball activities, Bruce Bochy announced following the Giants' 6-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
"Belt's been cleared," Bochy said. "We got good news on Brandon Belt. Great news. So, he'll come back here tomorrow, we can ramp up his baseball activities, and try to get him going. How long it's going to take is hard to say."
Belt was accidentally struck in the face by a thrown ball during batting practice in Miami on July 19 and missed the next 12 games with a concussion.
He returned on Aug. 2 and appeared in five games before he was forced to the bench again with a recurrence of concussion-like symptoms.
Belt was cleared to resume some baseball activities last week and received full clearance Thursday from Dr. Micky Collins in Pittsburgh, one of the country's foremost experts on sports-related concussions.
Could Belt possibly play in the final week and be available for the playoffs?
"Sure he could be," Bochy said. "Rough timetable I'd say is a week to 10 days. He's pretty far behind. He's missed some time, but we gotta find a way to get him some love pitching.
"I could see him helping us before this is over ... I think there is time to get him ready where he could help out, whether it's off the bench or starting."
