Cody Bellinger was named to the All-MLB first team as Major League Baseball today announced the inaugural selections. The first and second teams were determined by a combination of voting from fans and a decorated panel of 30 media members, broadcasters, former players and other officials throughout the game. Each player named to the All-MLB first or second team will receive a trophy to commemorate his selection.
The NL Most Valuable Player award was announced Thursday evening, and as was predicted from the very first month of the season, Cody Bellinger won his first MVP award.
As the snow starts to fly in part of the northeast, the awards part of the season is starting to hit its stride.
As many fans expected, Los Angeles Dodgers’ outfielder Cody Bellinger has been named the 2019 Rawlings National League Gold Glove award winner for right field.

When Cody Bellinger was leading the world in offense just 20 games into the season, many well-versed fans of the Dodgers knew there was little chance those types of numbers would hold up through the entirety of the 23-year-old’s 2019 campaign.
The Think Blue gang has spent a lot of time in the prediction and prospect business over the past week. And why not?

It was a magical first season for the first baseman of the Dodgers. Cody Bellinger originally was planning on spending most of the year in at Triple-A Oklahoma City and joining the big club with the rest of the September call-ups. But as we know, life doesn’t always go according to plan.
With Adrian Gonzalez now gone after having first base to himself for more than four years, Cody Bellinger represents a big part of the Dodgers‘ future. The unanimous 2017 NL Rookie of the Year will certainly garner enough playing time next season to conceivably better his freshman campaign offensively, but can he continue to improve and adjust to the strategies opposing pitchers use to attack his weaknesses?
