Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Expected to start through Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger will be in the lineup for each of the Dodgers' contests prior to their off day Thursday, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

Bellinger was given a day off Saturday in response to his slow start to the campaign, but he returned to the lineup Sunday and belted his first home run of the season. The Dodgers have no intent on sitting last year's National League MVP during their upcoming three-game series against the Padres, having already committed to including Bellinger in the lineup for each contest. Despite Bellinger's two-run blast Sunday, his slash line sits at a disappointing .150/.209/.250.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

Bellinger has gotten off to a rough start in 2020, and the first-inning blast was his first of the season. Through nine games, the reigning NL MVP is slashing .150/.209/.250 with just two extra-base hits and four RBI.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Bellinger will get a routine day off Saturday after going 0-for-14 with one walk and four strikeouts over the past three games. A.J. Pollock will handle the duties in center field, batting sixth.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Testing out new swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger showed up to camp with an altered swing, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The specifics of Bellinger's new swing aren't yet clear. While it's rather unusual to see a player tinker with his mechanics following a season in which he hit .305/.406/.629 with 47 homers, the 25-year-old was reportedly unhappy with his second half last year. After hitting .336/.432/.692 prior to the break, he hit .261/.370/.544 the rest of the way as his line-drive rate fell from 31.2 percent to 19.1 percent. Whether or not the changes have the desired effect remains to be seen.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Hitting in cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger has been able to take swings in a batting cage twice per week during MLB's hiatus, he stated in an interview with John Hartung of Spectrum Sportsnet LA.

In addition to the twice-per-week batting sessions with hitting coach Brant Brown, Bellinger has also been working out in an Arizona gym with teammate Enrique Hernandez. The reigning National League MVP indicated that he is "down for whatever" in terms of rumored plans to restart the season. Bellinger slashed .250/.280/.500 with one home run and four RBI in Cactus League play before spring training was suspended.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Slated for some time at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger will be the Dodgers' everyday center fielder in 2020, but he will spend some time at first base as well, Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

Bellinger is no stranger to first base -- he played all or part of 36 games there last season. While the reigning National League MVP spent most of his time (115 games) in right field last season, he'll shift primarily to center field (where he logged 25 appearances in 2019) in 2020 while Mookie Betts takes over in right. Still, manager Dave Roberts indicated during spring training that Bellinger will continue to spend some time at first base during the upcoming campaign, which could be a boon to fantasy managers if he is able to play the position enough to maintain eligibility there.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Hints at commitment to Team USA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger hinted at an interest in playing for Team USA in the 2021 World Baseball Classic via his Twitter account last week.

After Marcus Stroman listed Bellinger among a number of players he'd like to see play for Team USA, the reigning National League MVP responded "Let's get it!!" in an apparent display of interest. Though a spot on the team would not interfere with Bellinger's regular season -- the World Baseball Classic is scheduled for March 9-23, 2021 -- he would likely look to garner the consent of the Dodgers organization in order to participate.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Scratched from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger was originally part of Sunday's Cactus League lineup but was removed due to a scheduling mix up, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Fortunately, the scratch had nothing to do with Bellinger's early-week minor back issue as his inclusion in the original lineup was merely an oversight by manager Dave Roberts. The reigning National League MVP hit his first spring home run Saturday and is slated to start the Dodgers' next Cactus League contest.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's Cactus League contest against Oakland.

Bellinger sat out a few days with what he described as "a knot" in his back, but he downplayed the issue from the start and verified that he is fine by hitting a long home run to center field in the sixth inning Thursday. The 2019 NL MVP has gone 5-for-16 with one home run and four RBI in seven spring contests.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Starting in center in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger (back) will start in center field and bat second in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

The Dodgers relayed a day earlier that Bellinger was on track to play Thursday, but it wasn't immediately clear whether he would serve as a designated hitter or start in the outfield or at first base. Bellinger's ability to play center field indicates that the Dodgers are satisfied with his health after the 24-year-old missed a few days of action with a minor back issue.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Returning to lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger (back) will return to play in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Bellinger completed a full workout Wednesday and is set to face off against right-hander Mike Fiers during his return to game action Thursday. The reigning National League MVP appears to have overcome his minor back issue, but he's expected to take a conservative approach to his activity level this early in spring training.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Cleared for full workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger (back) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants but will go through a full workout, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Bellinger was scratched from the lineup Monday against the Reds with what was originally called side discomfort. Bellinger himself called the issue "a knot in his back" Wednesday. Regardless of the exact nature of the injury, it appears to be a minor one that isn't likely to significantly impact his preparation for the upcoming season.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Dealing with side discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellingers was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Reds after experiencing side discomfort, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The issue is reportedly minor, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. His status over the coming days is worth monitoring, but it appears as though the Dodgers are just being cautious in order to prevent a more serious issue ahead of the regular season.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger was scratched from the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The reason for Bellinger's removal has not yet been given. Matt Beaty was also scratched from the lineup but is reportedly not injured, so it's possible there's no reason to be concerned for Bellinger, either.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Settles with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger signed a one-year, $11.5 million contract with Los Angeles on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bellinger was named the 2019 National League MVP after slashing .305/.406/.629 with 47 home runs and 115 RBI over 156 games. He'll remain a staple of the Dodgers' lineup in 2020. According to DiGiovanna, Bellinger's $11.5 million deal breaks the record for a first-year arbitration-eligible player.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Named NL MVP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger was named the 2019 National League Most Valuable Player on Thursday.

The 24-year-old received 19 of 30 first-place votes to beat out Christian Yelich and Anthony Rendon for the award. Bellinger hit .305/.406/.629 with 47 home runs, 115 RBI and 15 stolen bases last season.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Slugs 47th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's win over San Francisco.

Bellinger kicked off the scoring for Los Angeles with a 419-foot shot to right field in the second inning. The MVP front runner is slugging .303/.405/.628 with 47 homers, 115 RBI, 120 runs, 15 stolen bases, and a 1.033 OPS in 154 games this season. He leads the majors with a 8.8 WAR.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

It appears to be a well-deserved day off for Bellinger, who has started the past 20 games, slashing .253/.349/.453 with four home runs and four steals over that span. Chris Taylor is manning center field and hitting third in his place Thursday.

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Connects for grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in a victory over Colorado on Sunday.

Bellinger made the most of his only hit of the game, launching a home run with the bases loaded in the fifth inning. The grand slam was the fifth of his career and 46th overall long ball this season. A sizable sample of 27 have come at home, establishing a new franchise single-season record. Bellinger should get plenty of consideration on NL MVP ballots in recognition of his overall brilliance in 2019. In addition to the home run total, he is slashing .302/.404/.628 with 114 RBI, 118 runs scored, 14 steals and a 1.032 OPS in 151 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bellinger went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a double in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

Bellinger drilled a 414-foot solo shot off the right-field foul pole in the eighth inning to put an end to a 12-game homerless stretch. Per MLB Stats, Bellinger has had five such power droughts of 12 games this season, and each has come to an end in the thirteenth game. The 24-year-old has put together an MVP-caliber season, slashing .305/.408/.631 with 45 homers, 110 RBI, 92 walks and 13 stolen bases in 148 games.
