Cody Bellinger, one of the top-rated prospects in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, was called up by the big-league club on April 26. He is slated to fill an outfield spot initially, although he has primarily been a first-baseman in the minors. He was a fourth-round pick of the Dodgers in the 2013 MLB Draft.
He is the son of Clay Bellinger, who played in four major-league seasons from 1999 to 2002. He appeared in the 2000 and 2001 World Series with the New York Yankees.
