Brandon Belt had to get intravenous fluids Monday morning after spending most of Sunday night failing to keep food in his stomach.

After batting .410 with eight home runs and 19 RBI in spring training, Belt went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Monday's opener.

He is clearly still not 100%, as Joaquin Arias is starting tonight at first base.
