Despite finding himself on the disabled list for a short period, “Codylove” had another impressive month in his first big league season. Would you expect anything less from the eventual NL Rookie of the Year?
Bellinger was able to muster up a formidable 19 hits and six home runs in August, and when you think of the fact that he missed ten games, it becomes just another Bellinger month.
His .292/.370/.615 slash line was consistent with the rest of his season stats, and it looks like he will be the Dodgers’ left fielder for the remainder of this season if Adrian Gonzalez can remain healthy.
Bellinger went down with a scary ankle injury in the middle of the month that looked worse than it was. Still, it was enough to land him a DL spot and didn’t help his case for MVP honors. Look for Cody to continue his historic rookie campaign in September and try and hit 40+ home runs.
