Bellinger was unable to replicate the magic of his 2019 breakout during last year's shortened season. His average dipped to .239, the worst mark of his career, his power dropped significantly, and he didn't make the same quality of contact. But although he slid backwards in his walk and strikeout rates, his regression there was minimal, and his expected batting average was .284. In other words, Bellinger got worse in 2020, but it wasn't quite as bad as the surface numbers suggest. He did have offseason shoulder surgery after getting injured during a post-season celebration, and that's always a bit worrisome for a hitter. But given that a "down" year for Bellinger at this point is a 30-15 season, he warrants being selected early in the second round.

Cody Bellinger (shoulder) is progressing well

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts noted that Cody Bellinger is progressing well. Bellinger has been participating in defensive drills and hitting. It sounds like he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Cody Bellinger is a rare player at first base with power and speed. However, the shoulder injury is concerning and worth monitoring as we inch closer to the season. If healthy, Bellinger provides the 35 home run and 15 steal upside.
