Cody Bellinger Relegated to Bench Duties, Chris Taylor Starting In Center Field for Game 3
October 10Grant WhiteSportsGrid
Cody Bellinger‘s forgettable season continues. The former MVP put up a career-worst .542 on-base plus slugging percentage, ranking 22nd on the Los Angeles Dodgers, below pitcher David Price. Bellinger’s on-base plus slugging percentage is worse through two postseason games, dipping to .429 through seven at-bats. Worse, the Dodgers’ regular center fielder has struck out five times this postseason.
Dave Roberts has seen what he needs to and will be relegating Bellinger to bench duties for Game 3 against the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers manager confirmed that Chris Taylor would start in center field and A.J. Pollock would patrol left field.
