LOS ANGELES, CA – JUNE 25: Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger /

During the month of June, the Dodgers’ outfield was a pivotal part of the team’s success. Hitting for a combined .245 average and crushing 32 home runs, these six players came up big for the outfield.

The Dodgers had one heck of a June, winning 21 out of the 28 games they played. In that time, they managed to take a 3.5 game lead over Arizona for first place and a dominating six-game lead over the slumping Rockies. The offensive unit as a whole had been unstoppable, outscoring opponents by a mark of +65 runs last month. This coincided with an impressive ten-game winning streak

Part of that winning streak was because of the outfield, which early in June was anchored by young star Cody Bellinger. They also received contributions from Yasiel Puig, Chris Taylor, Enrique Hernandez, Joc Pederson, and Franklin Gutierrez. On the year, those outfielders have combined for a .248/.335/.480 slash line with 65 home runs. So how do those players rank for the month? Let’s take a look at each player’s monthly assessment.
