  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Sits for first time

    Bellinger will be on the bench Monday against the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Bellinger started 33 straight games in center field to open the season, and while he's performed better than he did in his disastrous 2021 campaign, his .202/.261/.419 remains below expectations. He's combined a career-high 32.8 percent strikeout rate with a career-low 6.7 percent walk rate. Chris Taylor will slide to center field Monday, with Gavin Lux starting in left.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Snaps power drought Thursday

    Bellinger went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

    Bellinger came into the contest with no homers over his previous 14 games before he snapped that skid with a solo shot to right field in the third inning. It has been an up-and-down season for the center fielder thus far, as he batted .273 with four homers over his first 15 games but has hit just .140 with the one homer and a 3:19 BB:K in 15 games since.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Racks up three hits Sunday

    Bellinger went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 7-1 victory versus the Cubs.

    All three of Bellinger's hits in the game were singles, which was a theme for the team as a whole in the win, as Los Angeles collectively produced only one extra-base hit among its 10 knocks. The outfielder produced a run in the fourth inning when he legged out a grounder to second base. This was Bellinger's eighth multi-hit effort of the campaign and his first three-hit performance since the fifth game of the NLCS last season, per Sarah Langs of

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Swats pair of homers

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with two home runs, two runs and four RBI in a 10-2 victory against the Padres on Sunday.

    Bellinger launched a solo shot in the fourth inning off Sean Manaea and tacked on a three-run shot the next inning off Dinelson Lamet. The outfielder now has two multi-extra-base hit games in his last four and is slashing .273/.333/.582 on the season.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Late lineup addition

    Bellinger was added to the lineup Tuesday against Atlanta and will start in center field and bat eighth, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 26-year-old was set to receive his first day off of the season, but he'll instead join the lineup with Gavin Lux (back) a late scratch. Bellinger has a strong .278/.366/.500 slash line through 10 contests this season, though his day-to-day production has been feast or famine with five two-hit efforts and five hitless games.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Day off Tuesday

    Bellinger is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI during Monday's series opener, and he'll receive his first day off of the season Tuesday. Chris Taylor will shift to center field in his place while Gavin Lux starts in left.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Swats second homer

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and an additional RBI in a 7-4 victory versus the Braves on Friday.

    Bellinger knocked in a run on a groundout in the fourth inning, then plated the Dodgers' final tally with a 402-foot solo blast in the eighth. The productive performance marked the outfielder's fifth multi-hit performance over his past eight contests after starting the season with a pair of hitless affairs. Bellinger is slashing .278/.366/.500 with a pair of homers, three RBI, five runs and three stolen bases to begin the campaign, though his 29.3 percent strikeout rate and .364 BABIP portends some possible regression moving forward.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Records two more hits

    Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Thursday's 9-3 victory versus Cincinnati.

    Bellinger recorded multiple hits for the third time in his past four games after starting the season 0-for-8. He also racked up his third theft, tied for third most in the league. Bellinger has reached base safely in 11 of his past 18 plate appearances and has registered a .423 OBP on the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Goes yard

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and a walk Wednesday against the Twins.

    Bellinger collected his first two extra-base hits of the season, knocking a double in the third frame followed by a solo home run five innings later. Though Bellinger has struck out at least once in four consecutive contests, he's also reached base in three straight starts. It has been an inconsistent beginning to the campaign for Bellinger, but he remains an everyday player in the potent Dodgers lineup and has shown flashes of being a strong fantasy contributor across the last few games.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Swipes two bases Wednesday

    Bellinger went 0-for-3 with two walks, a run and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

    The bad news is that Bellinger was unable to put the ball in play Tuesday, as he racked up three strikeouts in the victory. On the positive side, he drew two walks and swiped his first two bags of the campaign in the fifth inning, helping to manufacture the Dodgers' first run. Bellinger is still hitting just .143 on the season, but he's reached based five times (three walks, two singles) in his past two games, so there's reason for his fantasy managers to hope that he's on the the verge of a turnaround.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: On base three times Sunday

    Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a run and a walk in Sunday's loss to Colorado.

    Bellinger went 0-for-8 with two strikeouts during the Dodgers' first two games of the campaign, evoking additional concern following a miserable spring during which he batted .139 with 18 strikeouts in 36 at-bats. His performance Sunday thus comes as a momentary sigh of relief for fantasy managers who have stock in him, though his first hit was merely a squibber that he beat out for a single. Bellinger's second single was a more impressive line drive to right field, and the 26-year-old also drew his first walk of the campaign. In 2019, Bellinger hit for a .305 average during his NL MVP season, but he has since batted .195 over 539 big-league at-bats. With his first base knocks of 2022 in the bag, he'll try to build momentum toward a bounce-back campaign during Los Angeles' upcoming two-game series in Minnesota.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: May have settled on stance

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Bellinger may have found a batting stance he likes, Juan Toribio of reports. "I think he's found a consistent setup and now he just needs to get the repetitions," Roberts said.

    Bellinger has been tinkering with his mechanics throughout spring in an attempt to find a stance he's comfortable with. The result has been an ugly .148/.179/.148 slash line that includes no extra-base hits and a 1:17 BB:K. With a week to go until the team's first regular-season game, Bellinger doesn't have much time to shake the rough start and settle into a groove, so he was scheduled to participate in a minor-league camp game Thursday and get several at-bats, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Continues to tinker with mechanics

    Bellinger appeared to adjust his hand level and angle while batting during Monday's Cactus League loss to Arizona, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the game.

    Bellinger has had a disastrous spring, going 3-for-22 with 15 strikeouts. Though Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated this weekend that Bellinger's role isn't in any danger in spite of his spring struggles, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports that Roberts acknowledged the impact of the constant mechanical adjustments on his play thus far. "I think for me to sum it up I just want him to get back to being a good hitter. I think it's hard to debate if that's your goal and not worrying about slug and mechanics," Roberts stated. Though spring training stats are typically taken with a grain of salt, there may be some cause for concern considering Bellinger's apparent lack of satisfaction with his approach and subsequent pileup of strikeouts. It's certainly relevant to note that the 2019 NL MVP set career-worst marks last season with a .542 OPS and 26.9 percent strikeout rate.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Struggling in spring

    Although Bellinger is struggling in spring training with 14 strikeouts in 19 at-bats, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts states Bellinger's role isn't in danger, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Through seven spring training games, Bellinger has a .158 batting average and .358 OPS with one walk and 14 strikeouts in 19 at-bats. With the addition of Freddie Freeman, Bellinger moves down in the batting order. In 2021, Bellinger posted his worst season, in large part due to injuries, with a .165 batting average, 10 home run, and three stolen bases in 350 plate appearances. Roberts seems willing to be patient with Bellinger, but the spring training struggles add to the concern.
