Cody Bellinger News
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger hasn't had the most productive season at the plate. However, the outfielder has continued to steal bases. In 226 plate appearances this season, the 26-year-old is batting .204 with a .274 on-base percentage, seven home runs, and six stolen bases in 226 plate appearances in 56 games. Bellinger began his career with three straight seasons with double-digit stolen bases totals from 2017 to 2019 but hasn't reached double-digit steals since. He has a shot at topping his previous career-high of 15. The veteran stole 15 bases in 2019 when he played in 156 games and logged 660 plate appearances for the Dodgers.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger (hip) is back in center field and is hitting seventh on Thursday against New York Mets right-hander Taijuan Walker. After missing the team's last four games, Bellinger will be back in there for the start of a series against New York in Los Angeles. The power-hitting left-hander has been better in the last 14 days with a .273 average (9-for-33) with no homers, four RBI and two stolen bases, but overall he's hitting just .218/.287/.400 with five home runs, 18 RBI, 20 runs scored and six stolen bases in 45 games for the Dodgers. Despite a lot of swing-and-miss to his game, Bellinger remains attractive for his power/speed combination in a relentless Dodgers lineup.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger (groin) remains out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bellinger is out of the starting lineup for the fourth straight game, but he'll be available off the bench and is expected to be back in there for the series opener against the New York Mets on Thursday. Chris Taylor is playing center field and batting fifth, while Kevin Pillar is in left field and hitting eighth against Pirates left-hander Jose Quintana. Bellinger is hitting just .221 on the season with a .291 on-base percentage in 44 games, but he's gone 11-for-34 (.324) in the last 14 days and has six stolen bases on the year. The power will come, but his swing-and-miss tendencies won't help your team's batting average.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger is just two years removed from an MVP award but he was the polar opposite in 2021. Despite a down 2020 where he slashed .239/.333/.450, he was largely taken within the top 20 picks in fantasy drafts the following year. He managed to make that stat line look good in comparison to his atrocious '21 campaign where he slashed .165/.240/.302 and his strikeout rate jumped to a career-worst 26.9%. Injuries are partly to blame, as he only logged 350 plate appearances amid multiple IL stints for different ailments. Perhaps he was never quite right and/or couldn't find a groove at the plate due to inconsistent playing time. Whatever the case, it was a season to forget and a year of frustration for fantasy managers.Heading into 2022, it will take a lot of trust that Bellinger can regain his previous form after consecutive duds. At age 26, he is in his prime and has every physical attribute you'd want out of an elite player. The Dodgers will be loaded on offense as usual. Bellinger is locked into everyday playing time unless injury strikes again or he continues to hit so poorly that he forces his way into a platoon. It's hard to imagine the latter occurring, so consider Bellinger a huge upside pick in the early-to-mid portion of drafts. His draft stock will be all over the place depending on how risk-averse managers in a given league are, but he isn't likely to last beyond the first 75 picks in most drafts.
