The Dodgers have been included in just about every trade rumor there is this off-season, but most of them will likely stay rumors. Why is that? Well, because a lot of these teams are after Cody Bellinger.
Cocy Bellinger is the number 1 prospect in the Dodgers organization, and for good reason! The 21 year-old first baseman had a slash line of .271/.365/.507 in 2016 with the Tulsa Drillers and OKC Dodgers. Now Major League Baseball is recognizing him as one of five players who are the future of the bigs.
