Bellinger’s month of May was quite the display from every aspect of the game. He was launching home runs, making stunning defensive plays in left field, showing off his speed and he even managed to show off a cannon of an arm that nobody would expect from a first baseman playing left field.
Bleacher Report pieced together a video of all his great stats throughout the start of his young career.
