It’s been a rough year to say the least for Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger. The former MVP has dealt with injuries all season long and when he’s been healthy has struggled mightily with the bat. We break down Belli’s down year and discuss why he hasn’t been able to get it going this season.
Next, we dive into what the Dodgers should do if the 2-time All-Star can’t turn it around and who they could consider playing in center field. Plus, will the Dodgers consider playing newly acquired All-Star, Trea Turner in center field?
Now, even after a 2-5 night, Cody is still hitting only .163 on the season, adding a career-low .548 OPS in 48 games. On the other hand, newly acquired All-Star Trea Turner is batting .322 on the season and has played 45 career games in center field. In fact, he made his MLB debut in center. However, he hasn’t played the position since his rookie season in 2016.
Chances are higher that Chris Taylor would see the lion’s share of time in center IF the Dodgers do decide to move away from a struggling Bellinger.
