Dodgers: Cody Bellinger Gives a Timeline For His Return to Game Action



The Dodgers are getting closer and closer to have their team at full health. Less than a full week into Spring Training games, some of their normal starters are getting back to 100 percent health and gearing up for a full season. 

 One of those guys could be Cody Bellinger. There were some doubts that Bellinger would be ready to get into games by the end of Spring Training within the last couple of weeks. The Dodgers outfielder underwent surgery to correct an issue in his right shoulder that caused multiple dislocations. 

The most notable dislocation of Bellinger’s shoulder came during a celebration during the NLCS. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts gave an update in early January that Bellinger had yet to pick up a bat. Worries surrounding that news were quelled when a video surfaced of Bellinger taking hacks in a cage last week.

Bellinger gave an update to SportsNet LA this week on his progress. According to him, he expects to be in Dodgers Spring Training games by the later part of next week. Bellinger also said that he feels as though he is ahead of schedule in terms of where he should be in his progression. 

The news is perfect timing for the Dodgers and for Bellinger. After a slightly down year in 2020, he will no doubt need some time to figure out things with his swing. Bellinger spent a lot of last Spring and Summer Camp toying with his mechanics.

  1. Interesting enough, I was watching a game with my wife when she causally implied, its something with Cody’s shoulder, that’s why he keeps adjusting his stand. I shot back, players adjust stands all the time; her response, his swing has more to do with his shoulder than his hips or legs. A mother’s intuition.

  2. I have been a Dodger fan since I saw the first Jackie Robinson movie eat a local theater in 1950 , thenThe Brooklyn Dodgers. I enjoy reading these articles, please keep them coming ! My wife and I met a Dodger coach, Roy Heartfeld and his wife in Chicago and he would get us tickets to sit in the Dodger section near the bull pen . We lost track of them . Do you have any information about them ? I also got letters from Walter O’Malley about OurTeam .
    Thanks
