Cody Bellinger in the Lineup for Friday’s Game Against the Dodgers in Los Angeles

Cody Bellinger is set to make his highly anticipated return to Dodger Stadium this weekend. Bellinger, who spent the first five years of his career in Los Angeles, was non-tendered this offseason, and ended up signing a one-year deal with the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs are in LA this weekend, set for a three-game series with the Dodgers. And while the Dodgers will try to focus on the game, all eyes will likely be set on Bellinger’s return.

On Friday, though, a report came out that Bellinger’s girlfriend is “due any day” with their second child, which could force Bellinger to miss all or part of this weekend homecoming series.

However, the Cubs have dropped the lineup for Friday’s game, and at least for now, Bellinger is in it.

Obviously, things can change at any moment, but for now, Bellinger is expected to play on Friday.

He’s sure to get a very warm welcome from Dodger fans, and the team will likely have some sort of nice tribute for him.

We’ll continue to update you if anything changes, but for now, Bellinger will be making his return to Dodger Stadium on Friday.

  1. I wish Cody well. Well, perhaps not too well, at least against the Dodgers, but I hope he gets back to the old Cody.

    But I’m doubtful. He had an impressive start, then a couple of years and an unbelievable first half one year, and now nothing since. I suspect the Dodgers made the right move in letting him go. Not meaning to be snarky at all, but I hope he’s banking money as I’m guessing he will soon be working for tens of thousands a year, not tens of millions.
