To say Cody Bellinger is on fire is an injustice to what he's accomplishing right now.
The Dodgers rookie 1B/OF has put on an absolute show in his first few months in the big's, blasting an astounding 24 HR's in 57 games, all while hitting .274 and adding 55 RBI's.
In a season where it seemed that no player could take the spotlight off of Aaron Judge, Bellinger is doing all that he can to bring attention to the West Coast. With the Dodgers on fire as of late, winning 10 straight, and taking sole possession of first place in the best division in baseball, the NL West, the majority of their success can be attributed to Bellinger.
He hit 2 home runs last night, notching yet another multi-HR game, and helped propel the Dodgers to a comeback 12-6 win over their division rival, the Colorado Rockies.
Not only is Bellinger an absolute lock for the NL Rookie of the Year, he is making a serious case for the MVP award as well if he keeps this pace and productivity up. Hitting multiple HR's every other game is insanity, and while we expect his production to slow down, I can't see it completely falling off, and for that reason, he will be an issue for NL teams for the rest of this season, and likely for years to come.
