Cody Bellinger

The Dodgers number 1 prospect as a 1b/of will be competing to stay with

the big league club. The main problem is Adrian Gonzalez has 2 more years on a

big contract and a crowded outfield. He has a lot of pop in AA he hit 23 home

runs and 65 RBI’s. The only obstacle may be his strikeout totals are a little high

but should get better with experience. His only shot to remain with the team after

spring will be in the outfield which means unseating Puig, Ethier, Toles and

possibly Verdugo if he does well in spring. I don’t see him sitting on the bench, so

more than likely he will be starting the season in AAA.
