Top Cody Bellinger News

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Signing with Cubs

    Bellinger agreed to a one-year, $17.5 million contract with the Cubs on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    The 27-year-old wasn't tendered a contract by the Dodgers for 2023, and he was courted by multiple clubs before he ultimately decided to join the Cubs. Bellinger is well removed from the production of his MVP campaign in 2019 and had a .210/.265/.389 slash line in 144 games last season, though his strong defense in center field should keep him in the lineup in 2023 even if he doesn't bounce back at the plate.

  • Cody Bellinger: Non-tendered by Dodgers

    The Dodgers declined to tender Bellinger a contract for 2023 on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The former NL MVP has regressed considerably over the past few seasons, making him worth far less than the projected $18 million price tag he would have received through arbitration. Despite his woes at the plate, Bellinger still figures to receive plenty of offers from teams around the league.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: On bench as expected

    Bellinger will sit for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Padres on Friday as expected.

    The Dodgers indicated during Thursday's off day that Bellinger wouldn't be in the lineup against lefty Blake Snell, and that's indeed the case. Bellinger's 92 wRC+ against righties this season wasn't great, but his 63 wRC+ against lefties was considerably worse. Trayce Thompson will take over in center field.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Remains on bench

    Bellinger remains out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Padres on Saturday.

    Seeing Bellinger on the bench against lefty Blake Snell in Game 3 was expected, but Saturday's game comes against a righty in Joe Musgrove. Bellinger hasn't done anything to suggest he deserves to start for a playoff team, hitting .210/.265/.389 in the regular season before going 1-for-6 with four strikeouts in the playoffs. He remains under team control for next season, but a Dodgers loss Saturday may mean he's already played his final game for the club, as he's at risk of being non-tendered following a pair of poor years. Trayce Thompson again starts in center field.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Exiting lineup in Game 3

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Bellinger won't start Friday in Game 3 of the National League Division Series matchup with the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The lefty-hitting Bellinger will take a seat in favor of Chris Taylor (neck), who will be entering the lineup in left field while Trayce Thompson shifts over to cover Bellinger's usual spot in center field. In the first two games of the series, Bellinger went 1-for-6 with four strikeouts.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Goes deep in finale

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-1 victory against Colorado on Wednesday.

    Bellinger hit one of three Dodgers homers in the tune-up for the playoffs, going deep to right field in the seventh inning. The outfielder finished with 19 long balls on the campaign, his most since he went deep 47 times during his MVP 2019 season. Bellinger slashed just .210/.265/.389 overall but enters the postseason on a roll, going 9-for-20 (.450) a pair of homers and eight RBI over his final six games.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Three hits, two RBI in win

    Bellinger went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Rockies.

    Bellinger was initially set for a day off against southpaw Kyle Freeland, but he was inserted into the lineup when Chris Taylor (neck) was scratched. The move paid off, as Bellinger singled in his first two at-bats and reached on an error in his third trip to the plate. He then wreaked havoc on the Rockies' bullpen with a game-tying sacrifice fly in the seventh inning and an RBI single for insurance in the eighth. Bellinger has five hits and five RBI in his last two games, and he's now slashing .207/.264/.384 with 18 home runs, 65 RBI, 69 runs scored and 14 stolen bases through 140 contests overall.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Enters Saturday's lineup

    Bellinger will hit seventh and play center field Saturday against the Rockies.

    Bellinger was originally out of the lineup with southpaw Kyle Freeland on the mound. However, the Dodgers scratched Chris Taylor due to neck stiffness, so Bellinger will now take the field Saturday.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Crushes 18th homer

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 10-1 win over the Rockies.

    Bellinger's fourth-inning blast gave the Dodgers more than enough of a cushion in the lopsided win. It was his 18th homer of the year, but his first since Aug. 21, a span of 30 contests. During that stretch, he hit .178 (16-for-90) with six doubles, eight RBI, 12 runs scored and three stolen bases. The outfielder owns a .203/.261/.381 slash line through 139 contests this season, and he's added 14 stolen bases, 63 RBI and 69 runs scored.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Sitting versus lefty

    Bellinger isn't in the lineup Tuesday against San Diego, Kirsten Watson of SportsNet LA reports.

    The lefty-hitting Bellinger will watch Tuesday's game from the dugout with the lefty-throwing Blake Snell starting the game for the Padres. Trayce Thompson will fill in for him in center field and bat eighth.
