Dodgers: Big Cody Bellinger Update, How LA Can Get MVP Belli Back

The Dodgers have been without former MVP Cody Bellinger since April 5 after he was accidentally spiked by Athletics pitcher Reymin Gudwan while trying to leg out an infield single at first base. Originally the injury appeared minor and was listed as a left calf injury, but later it was discovered he had suffered a hairline fracture in his left fibula.

We get the latest info on Cody Bellinger’s status and how he’s looked during his rehab assignment with the Dodgers AAA affiliate in Oklahoma City.

Next, we discuss how big of an impact Bellinger will have once he’s back in the lineup and what he needs to do to get back to playing like an MVP.


After this update, manager Dave Roberts confirmed that the team hopes to get his Gold Glove outfielder back on Saturday. With AAA OKC off on Wednesday, Cody packed up and headed back to Camelback Ranch in Arizona where Doc said he’d continue to get at-bats — including taking some hacks off the Bazooka, Brusdar Graterol.

  1. Throwing a baseball to first base is a problem with these Dodgers. Playing short should never have a problem throwing to first base. I give the third baseman a little slack. 2nd baseman none.. When you are playing a tight game there is nothing worse than throwing the game with a error to first, especially when you have a monster target like Albert P. The reason there are so many errors to first is you never practice throwing there. The Dodgers loose more games to error than I personally like and I am just a super fan and do not like to lose. Todays line up was good and I like Muncy batting 2nd. Mookie is not a bust and is playing good baseball. It seems like the Dodgers can’t get many runs for Trevor Bauer to win. I guess we get a little spoiled and just except with all these multi million dollars player we demand the best and I am sure the management does too. There is a reason why I don’t watch the Angels

    1. For 30 million a year betts is bust.
      But worse, physically he not going hold up for the next 12 years, leaving the Dodgers with a long big useless contract they have pay.
