Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger was named the National League MVP for the 2019 season on Thursday night. He beat out Christian Yelich, the NL MVP in 2018. The 24-year-old Bellinger hit .305/.406/.629 with 47 home runs and 15 stolen bases in his breakout season, and he became the first Dodgers position player to win the MVP since Kirk Gibson in 1988. Bellinger also won the Gold Glove in right field. He became the first player in franchise history to win a Gold Glove, Silver Slugger and MVP in the same season. He also won the Rookie of the Year in 2017 before slumping in 2018. Bellinger put himself back on the map in a big way in 2019. He'll be a force for years to come.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger went 1-for-4 in the Dodgers crushing loss to the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS. Bellinger went 4-for-13 in the final three games, but the MVP candidate failed to drive in a single run in the series. For a player that drove in 115 runs this season, Bellinger will have plenty to stew over this offseason. The 24-year-old is well on his way to finishing in the top three in the National League MVP race, but he will still have to answer plenty of questions over the winter after a dismal playoff round offensively.
It wasnt the prettiest game for Cody Bellinger, who left three guys on-base and didnt have a single productive at-bat on the night. Strasburg struck him out early in the game, and looked to have his number throughout. Bellinger will look to bounce-back Sunday night in a tough match-up with Max Scherzer. Make sure to tune in to watch one of the top three pitchers and hitters face-off with only one man able to come out on top. Dont expect Bellinger to be quieted all series.
