Cody Bellinger News
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger (ribs) has been scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers placed their struggling outfielder on the 10-day injured list due to a left rib fracture. The move is retroactive to September 18. Fellow outfielder Luke Raley was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Bellinger had missed the team's previous two games due to the rib fracture, but was being listed as day-to-day and was initially part of the lineup on Tuesday. Instead, Raley is starting in right field with Mookie Betts in center field. Bellinger could still return from the injured list with six games left in the year, but he has no business on fantasy rosters in most season-long leagues at this point.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger (ribs) is back in the lineup Tuesday and batting eighth against Antonio Senzatela and the host Colorado Rockies. The 26-year-old missed a few games with a non-displaced fracture to his left rib cage. Injuries have plagued the former NL MVP this season, and it has shown when he is at the plate. Bellinger is hitting a disappointing .159/.237/.291 on the year and hasn't done much against Senzatela, getting one hit in five at-bats against the right-handed pitcher.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger isn't in Friday's lineup. The Dodgers will take on the San Diego Padres and right-hander Joe Musgrove but will do so without Bellinger, who is hitting .158 with a .232 on-base percentage, nine home runs, and a pair of stolen bases in 315 plate appearances this season. The 25-year-old had previously started the Dodgers' last five games. Los Angeles will instead start Gavin Lux, Chris Taylor, and Mookie Betts from left to right in the outfield on Friday. Taylor and Betts are likely rostered in most leagues, leaving Lux as the only potential streaming option for fantasy managers. Given the matchup with Musgrove, you're probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming help.
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger is riding high after a World Series victory even though his .212 postseason average comes on the heels of a regular season where he slashed .239/.333/.455. His power numbers, while adequate at 12 home runs and 30 runs batted in, were not what fantasy managers expected out of a first-round selection and reigning MVP. The good news is that Bellinger's underlying peripherals suggest he hasn't lost his hitting stroke in any way and should have fared better. His expected stats are firmly in the red, including a .284 xBA, .497 xSLG, and .360 xwOBA that all rank above the 80th percentile. We mus not omit his 91st percentile sprint speed which allows him to add stolen bases to his repertoire and provide a big advantage over other first basemen. In all, Bellinger's lackluster final totals may be a result of the shortened season not allowing for his luck to even out and shouldn't discount his value in 2021 drafts. If he falls outside of the top-15 picks, he will be a steal.
