He struggled a bit in his sophomore campaign, but ultimately put together a very solid year. What went rightThe most important thing Bellinger contributed all season was his health. He appeared in all 162 games, something which is uncommon in today’s game. The 23-year-old showed a steady balance of power and speed, hitting 25 home runs and stealing 14 bases. He was one of only 10 players in all of baseball who accomplished both stats. Up until around August, it truly was a sophomore slump. Entering August 2, Bellinger was hitting only .236/.325/.451/.776. For Bellinger, a five-RBI performance against Milwaukee would turn everything around.The rest of the month, Bellinger was arguably the hottest hitter in all of baseball. He hit .363/.410/.560/.970. Tack on four homers and 19 runs driven in. He cooled down in the month of September , but recaptured that hot hitting during the last week of the regular season. With a sixth-consecutive division title on the line, Bellinger was LA’s hottest hitter. Hitting .350 with an OPS of 1.031, he helped push LA into a first-place tie with Colorado to end the season.The Dodgers found themselves in a tiebreaker game with the Rockies to determine the winner of the NL West. Tied in the fourth, Bellinger connected on his 25th homer of the season, giving the Dodgers a 2-0 lead, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish, as LA would win their sixth straight division title. Bellinger went on to win NLCS MVP, largely due to some major heroics. His diving grab here helped prevent a potential extra-base-hit in a crucial game four against the Brewers. His heroism continued on later into the game, as he delivered a walk-off single in the 13th. The single tied the series at two, and gave the Dodgers momentum in the series.His heroic efforts were on full display in game seven, as this two-run homer helped give the Dodgers an early lead in a series-clinching victory for LA. What went wrongYou could say it was a sophomore slump for Bellinger. His numbers dropped all across the board. He had a decrease in average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. Though he played in 30 more games than his rookie campaign, he hit 14 less home runs and drove in 21 less runs. His success against left-handed pitchers took a major hit. In 2017 Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey , Bellinger thrived against lefties, hitting .271 against them. In 2018, he hit only .226. Though he took home NLCS honors, Bellinger yet again struggled in the postseason. As a whole, he hit .115/.193/.192/.385 with 16 strikeouts. For Bellinger, he now owns a career .172 batting average in the postseason. 2018 particularsAge: 23 Stats: .260/.343/.470/.814, 25 HR, 76 RBI, 14 SB, 120 OPS+, 4.2 WARSalary: $585,000Game of the year As mentioned earlier, Bellinger essentially won game 4 of the NLCS for the Dodgers. Thanks to a great defensive play in the outfield and a walk-off single , Bellinger helped tie the series at two games. Roster status Bellinger has three options remaining. He’ll split time between first base and the outfield. No team has gotten more innings from its starting pitchers this season than the Cleveland Indians. No team has gotten fewer than the Tampa Bay Rays.Yet the Indians and Rays have ended up in a similar spot. Cleveland’s team ERA is 3.84. Tampa Bay’s is 3.82.The Rays have been unorthodox in their approach , eschewing a normal starting rotation in favor of a system in which one of their usual relievers might take the mound at the beginning of a game. Right now, Tampa Bay’s depth chart on only lists three pitchers in the rotation — yet the Rays are 60-58 and have a chance for their first winning season since 2013.Tampa Bay has tried using an “opener” at the start of games. One of the team’s relievers might start the game and pitch an inning or two. Then another pitcher — who might normally have been the starter — comes in and perhaps pitches through the middle innings. If his outing begins in the third, for example, he may benefit from not having to face the top hitters as often.The result is that the Rays’ stats are significantly skewed. Tampa Bay’s starters have thrown only 485 1/3 innings in 118 games. Cleveland, led by its stellar foursome of Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer, Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger, has gotten 737 1/3 innings from its starters. The Indians are atop the AL Central, but the Rays are comparable in terms of run prevention.The starting pitchers for the 2012 Colorado Rockies threw only 765 innings, and according to the database at, that’s the lowest total since at least 1908 in any season that wasn’t shortened by a work stoppage. The Rays appear well on their way to finishing below 700.Other developments from around the majors:NO RESTE.D. stands for Edwin Diaz, and it also stands for every day.The Seattle closer saved all four games of his team’s series sweep of the Houston Astros. The last victory came in 10 innings Sunday.Diaz now has 46 saves for the playoff-chasing Mariners Mike Piazza Jersey , and he could threaten Francisco Rodriguez’s record of 62, set in 2008. Diaz has also posted a 1.98 ERA.Problem is, his career high in innings is 66, set last season. He’s already at 59 this year. Diaz has also made 59 appearances. Only Jose Alvarez of the Angels (60) has more.HIGHLIGHTSDavid Bote and Cesar Hernandez both circled the bases in memorable fashion.Bote, pinch-hitting for the Chicago Cubs, won Sunday night’s game over Washington with a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth. The Cubs were down 3-0 with two outs before Bote’s drive to center .Hernandez went all the way around the bases after dropping a bunt in Philadelphia’s 5-2 win over Arizona on Tuesday night. There were two throwing errors by the Diamondbacks on the play . The Phillies play the Mets next weekend in the Little League Classic at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, so Hernandez should already be in the right spirit after taking advantage of Arizona’s carelessness.LINE OF THE WEEKMookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox continued his push for the American League MVP award, hitting for the cycle in an 8-5 win over Toronto on Thursday night. He completed the cycle in style, with a home run in the ninth inning.
