Cody Bellinger Will No Longer Play First Base 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue May 7, 2019 12:25 pm

The Los Angeles Dodgers say Cody Bellinger will be an outfielder going forward after suffering a slight dislocation of his right shoulder diving for a ball while playing first base on Friday night.

Bellinger, who throws left-handed, remained in that game and doubled. The shoulder also briefly popped out of socket last year.

\"It\'s happened a couple of times, but Cody said he feels good,\" Dave Roberts said. \"I do think, going forward, him being an outfielder makes the most sense. Being at first base, a potential dive, we\'ll see how that goes as time goes by.\"
