MLB Players Power Rankings (4): Cody Bellinger, Los Angeles Dodgers

2019 Stats:  0.629 SLG |  0.415 wOBA |  162 wRC+ |  7.7 fWAR

Cody Bellinger started off the 2019 MLB season on absolute fire. Through 47 games this year, Bellinger was hitting .404 with a 1.271 OPS. In that same span, he managed to hit 17 HR and 44 RBI. This got some discussing whether Bellinger could become the first hitter to hit .400 in a season since Boston Red Sox legend Ted Williams did it in 1941.

Bellinger was by far the best player in baseball for the first half of the season, posting the best fWAR (5.4) in the National League. Even though the second half hasn’t been as fortuitous for Bellinger, it’s still been good enough to keep him in the NL MVP race against Cody Bellinger and Anthony Rendon.

Overall, Bellinger finished the season with a .305 AVG and a 1.035 OPS. He also has the most home runs (47) and RBI (121) of all the NL MVP candidates which is definitely good enough to garner some votes for the award when all is said and done. For now, he’s focused on helping the Los Angeles Dodgers finally win a World Series.
