first_imgIn that regard, Bellinger is no different from anyone in the clubhouse. Compared to his peers, though, Bellinger is already several steps ahead.In his first full season at the Double-A level, Bellinger slugged 23 home runs and reached base at a .359 clip for the Tulsa Drillers last year. In three games at Triple-A Oklahoma City to finish the season, Bellinger collected six hits. Three were home runs.Behind the scenes in his first full major league camp, Bellinger has shown an atypically mature work ethic.“He’s an intelligent kid,” Ward said. “He knows what he needs to work on. He has a routine every single day.”Bellinger made a splash by hitting .393 in camp last year. He hit home runs off Chicago White Sox lefty Dan Jennings and Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Randall Delgado — two pitchers who spent all season in the majors.It hasn’t been as easy this year, but Bellinger is emphasizing his process over his results. Ward said Bellinger seems even more relaxed compared to this time last year.“They know I can hit,” Bellinger said. “I know I can hit. My defense has been there. I’m trying to show what I can do on the basepaths as well. Your bat’s not always going to be there.”AlsoJulio Urias will piggyback Brandon McCarthy’s start today/Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners. … Hyun-Jin Ryu will start Thursday’s game against the Cubs. … Clayton Kershaw and Alex Wood will each start one of the Dodgers’ split-squad games Friday. … Sergio Romo and Adrian Gonzalez (Mexico) and Rob Segedin (Italy) are expected back today/Wednesday after their teams were eliminated from the World Baseball Classic, manager Dave Roberts said. … Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen challenged Will Ireton, Kenta Maeda’s interpreter, to deadlift 405 pounds. Ireton completed the challenge wearing a professional wrestling singlet. GLENDALE, Ariz. >> About this time a month ago, Cody Bellinger was on the cover of every Baseball America magazine circulating in spring training clubhouses across Arizona. His 2017 stat line was a blank slate, allowing the imagination to run wild with possibilities for the Dodgers’ top prospect.Now, almost a month into spring training, reality is catching up. Bellinger has been exposed to more major league pitching in the last week of his life than, well, ever, and the gap in experience is beginning to show.Bellinger, 21, has struck out in one-third of his 39 Cactus League plate appearances through Tuesday. His swing-and-miss rate is expanding as rapidly as his margin for error is shrinking.“I’m having a good time,” Bellinger said. “It’s still early. A couple games, my hands were in the wrong place again. I’m trying to get used to it again.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img A brief demonstration in the Dodgers clubhouse on Tuesday illustrated the problem. Bellinger held his hands up around the height of his cheek — too high, he said, to start his swing and still be quick enough to the baseball. Then Bellinger dropped his hands a couple inches lower. That’s where they need to be. He and Dodgers hitting coach Turner Ward explored this difference in the video room recently.It’s a subtle difference, one that would elude the untrained eye. Sometimes that’s all it takes for even the most heralded prospect in America to bat .182 against Cactus League pitching.“During the (Arizona) Fall League, the first couple games were like that,” Bellinger said. “For some reason that happens, but that’s baseball. It’s a game of adjustments. Your hands aren’t going to be in the right spot 100 percent of the time.”Ward believes there’s more to it than that.“You’ve got to go through things in the course of the season and the course of spring,” Ward said. “Always, there’s little adjustments to make. I wish I could say it’s one thing, little adjustments, this or that. But literally it’s constant adjustments that guys are making.”last_img read more
