Former MVP Not Tendered by Dodgers, Becomes Free Agent
Three years after becoming a superstar for his team, the league MVP has been released.
The Los Angeles Dodgers non-tendered National League MVP Cody Bellinger, making him a free agent.
Bellinger made his MLB debut in 2017 and won National League Rookie of the Year with 39 homers and 97 RBIs.
Two years later, he hit.305 with 47 homers, 115 RBIs, and a 1.035 OPS to win MVP. Gold Glove in centre field.
He hit.239 in the COVID-shortened 2020 season and won the World Series. The 60-game season was a precursor.
Bellinger is hitting.193 with a.611 OPS and 29 homers in 239 games since 2021.
They may also lose Trea Turner to free agency, but the Dodgers have been linked to Aaron Judge.
