Tuesday was a day of lesser-known pitchers putting forth strong efforts, two of which grace today's list of recommended pickups. The day's recommendations, however, begin with a slugging first baseman from a better-than-expected San Francisco Giants team:

Brandon Belt, 1B, Giants: Giants hitters have become popular in ESPN leagues recently, with three of them residing among the 25 most-added hitters in the past seven days, and Belt is the one in the available-in-more-than-75%-of-leagues class that I'd strongly recommend adding. Criticisms surrounding him are obvious: His injury history, as he has made nine trips to the injured list in the past eight seasons alone, and his tendency to fatten up his statistics during his Coors Field visits, as he has .323/.385/.569 rates and 13 home runs in 273 career plate appearances there and just delivered a 4-for-10 (.400 BA), two-homer, seven-RBI series there from May 4-5.
