It’s been a frustrating season for Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger, to say the least. Entering the year, expectations were somewhat tempered considering that the former NL MVP had undergone off-season shoulder surgery due to a shoulder bump celebration with Kiké Hernandez in the NLCS last year, but no one expected things to go this poorly.
Bellinger suffered a major setback during LA’s fourth game of the season when he suffered a hairline fracture to his left fibula after being cleated by A’s reliever Reymin Guadan. The injury was initially believed to be minor but ultimately proved to be much more severe forcing the 2-time All-Star to miss almost two months.
We discuss why Cody Bellinger hasn’t looked like the elite slugger that he was during the first half of the 2019 season and why a reduced role could benefit him in the long run. Next, we dive into the numbers to see just how far Bellinger has fallen. Plus, would LA ever consider trading Cody Bellinger?
