With the MLB offseason now in full swing, rumors are flying everywhere. The Dodgers name continuously comes up all the time, even if some have no real bearing on what LA will do this offseason.
One name that has been buzzing of late is the potential for former Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger to return to the team this offseason. Bellinger reenergized himself in his lone season away from LA and now is in line for a big payday.
Bellinger was great for the Cubs this past season, hitting .307 with 26 home runs and 97 runs batted in. He won the National League Comeback Player of the Year award and was instrumental to the success of Chicago this year.
It remains unlikely that Bellinger will return to the Dodgers, but his agent, the infamous Scott Boras, says that the door isn’t closed on a return. Boras was asked whether there was a chance for Bellinger to return to Los Angeles, either with the Angels or Dodgers, and he didn’t shy away.
“Our position on that is that Cody’s told me to look at the full gamut of the major leagues. Listen to everybody and he’ll make his decision from there.”Per Scott Boras
It would be very interesting if Bellinger were to return to the team, especially considering that LA seemed to be open to moving on last offseason. Bellinger found his swing again with the Cubs, and it would be strange for him to return to the place that he lost it.
Additionally, after everything that happened with Boras this past season, it seems far-fetched that a reunion would happen. Boras is also one of the toughest agents to deal with, and the Dodgers typically don’t do business with him unless they absolutely have to.
