Cody Bellinger News
Chicago Cubs outfielder/first baseman Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, two RBI, and his 24th home run in a win over the San Francisco Giants Wednesday afternoon. Bellinger's OPS now sits at .920 and has played like a borderline top-five outfielder this season and may only be behind Freddie Freeman at first base in many fantasy leagues. To say he's having a rebound season is a complete understatement. With four homers and nine RBI through seven September games, Bellinger is showing no signs of slowing down and could be a part of many championship teams in the next few weeks.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Cody Bellinger has continued his career resurrection as he totaled five RBI in Sunday's win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bellinger went 3-for-5 with two runs and two doubles. The five RBI was half of Chicago's 10-1 win. Hitting .321 with a .914 OPS for a hot team, Bellinger should continue to be a fantasy star the rest of the way. That makes 10 RBI over five games for Bellinger and 75 on the season.
Chicago Cubs first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals. The 28-year-old went the other way twice in this one, first bopping a two-run homer to the opposite field in the first inning. The lefty-hitting Bellinger then banged another HR to deep left center in the third frame. He also hit a sacrifice fly to bring in Chicago's sixth and final run of the game. Bellinger's long-awaited career renaissance has been on full display during the season's second half. In 42 games since June 30, the former NL MVP is hitting a white-hot .391 (63-for-161) with 11 long balls, 37 RBI, and seven stolen bases to spearhead on MVP-caliber campaign overall.
Cody Bellinger slashed just .210/.265/.389 with 19 HR and 14 SB over 550 PAs last year. His .255 BABIP seems extremely low at first glance, but the combination of very high FB% (47.2 last season) and IFFB% (14.1) numbers makes it difficult to expect much more. Still, Bellinger was shifted in all but 10 opportunities last season and managed a 6.3 Oppo% on grounders, so the reduction in overshifts might add a few points to his average. Similarly, Bellinger shaved more than two ticks from his SwStr% last year (14.2% to 12%) but didn't see any corresponding decrease in strikeouts (26.9% to 27.3%), providing more BA upside. Favorable LD% regression (17.2% vs. 20.8% career) could also help. Bellinger's power wasn't great either with a 92.3 mph average airborne exit velocity and 8.3% rate of Brls/BBE, but the sheer number of flies he hits should keep his HR totals respectable. Throw in about 15 steals and a better spot in the Cubs lineup than he had with the Dodgers, and you're looking at a nice upside play at his current ADP of 187.64.
