Dodgers: Cody Bellinger Undergoes Surgery on His Injured Shoulder

The Dodgers will have to wait and see how Cody Bellinger heals up over the next couple of weeks. The former National League MVP had to undergo surgery on Tuesday afternoon in order to repair his shoulder that he dislocated during the National League Championship series.  

The timetable for Bellinger’s return to action is roughly 10 weeks, per Jeff Passan of ESPN. That would put him on track to be ready for Spring Training with the Dodgers should camps start on time as scheduled. 

Bellinger dislocated his shoulder during Game 7 of the NLCS after hitting a huge homerun off of Chris Martin. During the celebration, Bellinger punched arms with several Dodgers players and was seen in visible pain after. The team reportedly put him in a sling to help him heal up from it, and it could have played a factor in his World Series performance. 

Bellinger hit a homerun during the series against Tampa Bay, but 3 hits total in the series. Perhaps the shoulder was more of an issue than the team was willing to admit. The Dodgers have yet to comment on Cody’s surgery as of now.
