Dodgers manager Dave Roberts noted that Cody Bellinger will take some live at-bats at their Spring Training complex later this week. Bellinger completed 40% bodyweight running and slowly progressing.
The Dodgers have been without Cody Bellinger since April 5th. It's a good sign that he'll see live at-bats soon, but it sounds like he's still a ways away. Keep holding onto Bellinger in all formats.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger, who's on the IL with a hairline fracture in his left fibula, is taking batting practice on Thursday.
This is the first onfield activity Bellinger has participated in since sustaining the injury back in early April. He still has no timetable for his return and it should be a few weeks before he's cleared for full activity but this is a step in the right direction. Bellinger told reporters he doesn't know when he'll be ready to play because of the nature of the fracture. "It's just such a weird injury. It's not weight-bearing so it's once the swelling and the bruising and the fluid is out around the fracture, I should be good to go," the 25-year-old said.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed on Friday that a recent scan revealed a hairline fracture in Cody Bellinger's leg.
Bellinger has been on the injured list since April 9 but has not been able to run at full speed and was still experiencing swelling as of Wednesday. We don't yet have an updated timetable for his return, but it is likely that he will miss multiple weeks.
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Cody Bellinger on the injured list with a left calf contusion and recalled Luke Raley on Friday, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.
Bellinger was already ruled out through Friday after being spiked earlier in the week, and a trip to the injured list wasn't ruled out even though tests on Tuesday revealed no structural damage. This move will be back-dated so that Bellinger will be able to return in fewer than 10 days if he is healthy, so check on his status over the weekend for updates.
Cody Bellinger (calf) is absent from Friday's lineup against the Nationals.
Mookie Betts (back) is also sitting for the team's home opener. Bellinger hasn't played since Monday and the IL remains a possibility for him.
