SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants first baseman Brandon Belt will travel with the team to Chicago next week, then depart for Pittsburgh to be examined by concussion specialist Micky Collins.
"We'll have another evaluation with that and see where he's at," manager Bruce Bochy said Friday before the game against the Philadelphia Phillies. "He's about the same, so we think it's important that we get another look at him, another opinion to see where we're at."
Belt went back on the seven-day concussion disabled list a week ago after symptoms recurred five games into his return from his initial concussion-related stint on the D.L.
So now he'll meet with Collins, a noted concussion expert who works with several NFL teams. St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was treated by Collins when he dealt with concussions that ended his career in 2006 with the Giants.
"He should be fine and we're hoping he's OK to go today," Bochy said. "He's at the park and doing pregame stuff and if all that goes fine, he should catch (Friday)."
Sanchez went on the seven-day disabled list July 26 after suffering a concussion caused by a foul tip off his mask against the Los Angeles Dodgers the previous night. The Giants placed him on the 15-day disabled list Monday, three days after a foul tip off his mask forced him to leave his third rehab start.
