Cody Bellinger. A-. . .

One of the biggest reasons the Dodgers have been able to take back first place in the West is their youth and Cody Bellinger is a prime example. The Kid can flat out hit, and the whole league is finding that out the hard way.

Before Adrian Gonzalez went back on the disabled list this month, Bellinger was providing the outfield with some major pop. In the month of June, Bellinger hit .286 with 13 home runs. His 13 home runs account for over a quarter of the team’s monthly totals.

Cody’s walk totals were also slightly up from last month, walking 13 times as opposed to 11 in May. While he’s not going to start the All-Star game this year, there should be no doubt by now that Bellinger is a front-runner for Rookie of the Year.
