Player Outlook
The 2019 National League MVP was non-tendered by the Dodgers after the 2022 season and subsequently joined the Cubs on a one-year, $17.5 million deal, and he revitalized his career in the Windy City. Cody Bellinger missed a month during the first half with a knee issue but still played in 130 games, making 81 starts in center field and 44 at first base. He delivered strong counting stats with 26 homers, 20 steals, 97 RBI, 95 runs and a .307/.356/.525 slash line while cutting his strikeout rate nearly 12 percentage points to 15.6 percent. However, he had a career-best .319 BABIP to go along with career worsts in barrel rate (6.1 percent) and hard-hit rate (31.4 percent), which led to a .270 xBA and .437 xSLG, all of which indicates some fortunate results for Bellinger in 2023. That being said, those expected figures would still be significant improvements on his ugly numbers from the previous two years. He'll turn 29 years old in July and should be a solid middle-of-the-order bat in 2024, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a repeat of 2023 given his underlying numbers.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Homers in victory

    Bellinger went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Dodgers. Bellinger was able to connect on a sinker from Ryan Yarbrough in the bottom of the sixth inning, sending the ball 372 feet for his second long ball of the season. The 28-year-old has now reached base in six out of the last seven games, batting .250 with two homers, six RBI, five walks and four runs scored over that stretch.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Blasts first 2024 home run

    Bellinger went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run in Tuesday's 12-2 win over the Rockies. Bellinger connected for his first home run of the season in the seventh inning against Anthony Molina and now has hits in four of his first five games of the year. The 28-year-old also has multiple RBI in his last two contests, and he should have plenty of chances to rack up good counting stats all season long from the middle of Chicago's lineup.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Doubles RBI total in win

    Bellinger went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 5-0 win over the Rockies. Bellinger came into the contest with two RBI across his first three games of the season, but he managed to double his output as he paced the Cubs in the win. The 28-year-old is still looking for his first multi-hit game of the year, though he should have plenty of those coming off of a strong 2023 campaign in which he batted .307. Bellinger also led Chicago with 97 RBI last season.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Slated for spring debut Wednesday

    Bellinger will make his Cactus League debut at designated hitter Wednesday against the Angels, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. He'll then progress to playing the field Friday or Saturday. Bellinger is a bit behind schedule this spring after re-signing with the Cubs a little over a week ago, but he still has plenty of time to prep for Opening Day. The 28-year-old is likely to see most of his action in center field this season, with starts at first base also being a possibility.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Returns to Cubs on three-year deal

    Bellinger agreed to a three-year, $80 million contract with the Cubs on Sunday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. The contract includes opt-outs after both the 2024 and 2025 seasons. A former Rookie of the Year and National League MVP with the Dodgers, Bellinger's production fell off a cliff in 2021 and 2022, but he rebounded with the Cubs last season (.881 OPS, 26 home runs, 20 steals). Still just 28 years old, he will have a chance to build on what he accomplished in Chicago while playing under new manager Craig Counsell. Bellinger primarily hit cleanup last season under former skipper David Ross.

  • Cody Bellinger: No real negotiations with Cubs yet

    Cubs owner Tom Ricketts said Monday that there have been "some discussions" with Bellinger's agent, Scott Boras, but it hasn't evolved into a "negotiation" yet, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Furthermore, Ricketts implied that the front office is waiting for Boras to reach back out to re-engage in talks. Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reported earlier Monday that the Cubs are not expected to make Bellinger a massive, long-term offer but would have interest in a shorter contract with opt outs. With spring training underway, Bellinger presumably doesn't want to wait too much longer before making a decision.

  • Cody Bellinger: Officially declines mutual option

    Bellinger declined his end of a $12.5 million mutual option with the Cubs on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. This was a no-brainer move for Bellinger, who is certain to be one of the more sought-after hitters on the open market this winter after bouncing back to record a .307/.356/.525 slash line with 26 homers, 97 RBI, 20 stolen bases and 95 runs scored across 130 games with Chicago in 2023. Beyond his offensive upside, the 28-year-old former NL MVP also rates well defensively in center field and would be a fit for a number of clubs.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Takes seat Sunday

    Bellinger is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Milwaukee. The Cubs won Saturday but were still eliminated from postseason contention, so Bellinger will sit for the final game of the campaign. The 28-year-old enjoyed a resurgent year with an .881 OPS, 26 homers, 20 steals and 97 RBI in 130 contests. He's likely to decline his $12 million mutual option for 2024 and should be a hot commodity as a free agent in the offseason.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Tallies three hits in loss

    Bellinger went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to Atlanta. All three hits were singles, but Bellinger will take it after going hitless in his previous three games. He's still batting a robust .309 this season, though that's dipped a little bit in September, albeit to a still-solid .280. The Cubs will need Bellinger to produce over the final few games if they want to advance to the playoffs.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Doubles twice, scores in loss

    Bellinger went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to the Pirates. This was Bellinger's first multi-hit effort in 11 days as he entered Wednesday's contest just 6-for-32 over his last eight games. Even with the small slump, the 28-year-old is still batting a robust .310 this season with an .895 OPS, and he's been a big reason why the Cubs are in position to secure a playoff spot.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Drives in both runs Saturday

    Bellinger went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's 3-2, 10-inning loss to the Diamondbacks. Bellinger plated runs with singles in the third and 10th innings, giving him a team-high 88 RBI for the season. The 28-year-old has had a resurgent first season with the Cubs, as he's sporting a .909 OPS and has looked more like the MVP player he was with the Dodgers back in 2019. Bellinger should remain a key contributor for Chicago down the stretch as the squad battles for a playoff spot.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Hits 24th home run

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Giants. Bellinger doubled home a run in the third inning, then hit his 24th home run of the season in the seventh to help the Cubs to an 8-3 win. Chicago has the inside track on a playoff spot and Bellinger has been a big reason why. The 28-year-old is batting .321 for the year with a .920 OPS and he has a hit in every game this month, giving him a .379 average in September.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Has some 'bumps and bruises'

    Cubs manager David Ross said Monday that Bellinger is getting a second straight start at designated hitter because he's dealing with "some bumps and bruises," Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. "Some bumps and bruises I'm trying to err on the side of caution with that," Ross said. "But he's fine. He can do everything we asked him to do." Ross added that he plans to get other regulars some starts at DH as the Cubs go through a difficult part of their schedule.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Goes deep in rout

    Bellinger went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three total RBI in Sunday's 15-7 victory over the Reds. As has been the case for most of the year, Bellinger was right in the middle of Chicago's offensive surge. It's been a huge bounceback campaign for the 2019 NL MVP winner in his first season with the Cubs. He now has 23 home runs and a .916 OPS, compared to 19 long balls and just a .654 OPS last year with the Dodgers. Bellinger is likely behind the likes of Ronald Acuna, Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman in the 2023 MVP race, but the former is once again playing at an elite level.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Big day in twin bill

    Bellinger went 4-for-8 with a walk, two home runs, four RBI and a stolen base across both games of Friday's doubleheader split with the Reds. He launched solo shots in each contest, taking Graham Ashcraft deep in the fourth inning of the matinee before getting hold of a Lyon Richardson curveball in the third frame of the nightcap. Bellinger snapped a brief 11-game homer drought in the process, but he was far from invisible during that stretch, piling up 14 RBI. The 28-year-old is one steal short of his first career 20-20 campaign, and his 22 homers and 81 RBI on the year are his highest totals since he delivered 47 and 115 during his 2019 MVP season with the Dodgers.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Drives in five Sunday

    Bellinger went 3-for-5 with two doubles, five RBI, two runs scored and a steal in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh. Bellinger's now 4-for-10 with seven RBI in his last two games following a brief 4-for-23 (.174) slump over his prior six contests. The 28-year-old outfielder also improved to 18-for-22 on stolen base attempts this season after swiping his first bag since Aug. 6. Overall, Bellinger's slash line is up to an impressive .321/.368/.546 with 20 homers, 76 runs scored and 75 RBI across 419 plate appearances on the year.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Scores twice, drives in two in win

    Bellinger went 2-for-5 with two runs and two RBI in Saturday's 10-6 win over the Pirates. Since his two-homer game Aug. 19 against the Royals, Bellinger has been limited to one extra-base hit (a double) in his last seven games, but he's still contributed seven RBI and three runs during that stretch. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a resurgent campaign in Chicago and will carry a .317/.365/.540 slash line into Sunday's contest. He'll start at designated hitter and bat cleanup in the series finale in Pittsburgh.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Stays hot with two homers

    Bellinger went 2-for-3 with two homers and four RBI in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Royals. Bellinger took Brady Singer deep in his first at-bat, scoring Nico Hoerner as the Cubs jumped out to a 2-0 lead. But the first baseman wasn't done there, crushing a second homer in his next trip to the plate and finishing with four RBI for the third time this season. Bellinger has been on fire in August, registering nine multi-hit games to go along with five home runs and 17 RBI. He's collected two or more hits four of his last seven contests.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Clubs another home run

    Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jays. Bellinger hit the second of two first-inning Chicago home runs following a solo shot by Nico Hoerner. Bellinger has been hot lately with a 1.225 OPS, three home runs and 12 RBI across his last 10 games. For the season, he's slashing .329/.379/.559 with 18 long balls and 17 stolen bases, making him a very strong fantasy asset.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Goes deep in win

    Bellinger went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Mets. With the Cubs down 2-0 in the fourth inning, Bellinger launched his 17th home run of the year to cut the deficit in half. He has a hit in all eight games he's played this month, leaving him with an absurd .500 batting average to go along with two home runs and 10 RBI in August. It's been an excellent resurgent campaign for Bellinger in his first season with Chicago.
