Cody Bellinger News
Los Angeles Dodgers Outfielder Cody Bellinger left early during Friday's game against the Rangers with lower-body "cramps." He went 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI before exiting. The Dodgers outfielder was later replaced in the game by Zach McKinstry. Even before the injury, Bellinger was scheduled for a day off on Saturday. Fantasy managers can expect to be without the 25-year-old until Sunday at the earliest. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Bellinger is "day-to-day" and "they'll know more on Saturday." Look for an update later this evening. Zach McKinstry and Matt Beaty should see an uptick in playing time while Bellinger is sidelined.
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger will not be in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Rangers. Kolby Allard has made life miserable for left-handed batters this season, so Dave Roberts made the call for strategic purposes. Gavin Lux will also be benched against Texas, so fantasy managers should expect Mookie Betts to play center and Albert Pujols to man first base.
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger went 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored versus the Pittsburgh Pirates in Thursday's contest that was called in the top of the eighth inning. Bellinger returned from the injured list on May 29 and is now hitting .203 with one home run, nine RBI and a stolen base. Fantasy managers should remain patient with Bellinger and continue to start him. Bellinger will look to build off of Thursday's game on Friday versus the Texas Rangers and Mike Foltynewicz.
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.
