Position: Center Field
Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Series: Home Run Derby
This one may be putting the cart before the horse slightly, considering Bellinger is still a member of the Chicago Cubs at the time of writing. That being said, he’s a Gold Glove caliber defender (even if this card only has silver fielding) at multiple positions that can hit for average and power while also stealing bases on a team that is hovering around last in the division. He’s not going to be a Cub for long.
So that’s why he’s the starting center fielder on this squad. He can slot in just about anywhere in the lineup and his bat will absolutely play, especially this Home Run Derby version of the card that has dummy pop and a sweet left-handed swing.
