When Cody Bellinger appeared to injure his leg in the outfield, Dodger fans everywhere grew anxious. Luckily, it was just a mild ankle sprain that landed him on the 10-day disabled list.
In case you don’t remember the injury, here it is:
On Saturday, Dave Roberts told the media that Cody Bellinger would probably be activated on Wednesday if his health continues to improve. Apparently Bellinger thinks he’s ready to go now, which is a good sign that Wednesday will be the day.
Bellinger walked by Dave Roberts media session in dugout and proclaimed he's "100 %"

Not having Cody Bellinger in the lineup makes the Dodgers team worse, plain and simple; However, in their last 7 games they are a respectable 4-3. During that 7-game stretch, the players who have stepped up to the plate to lead the team are not suprising: Corey Seager and Yasiel Puig. Seager is hitting .357, boosting his average on the year .312! Puig is hitting an incredible .400 with 2 homers and 3 doubles!
Hopefully these guys can stay hot, but if not, they shouldn’t worry too much because Cody Bellinger is on his way back.
