Report: Bellinger undergoes shoulder surgery

Los Angeles Dodgers star Cody Bellinger underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the right shoulder he dislocated during the playoffs, ESPN reported.

Bellinger is expected to miss 10 weeks, putting him on track to be ready for spring training, per the report. He’ll be able to swing a bat in four weeks, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Bellinger, 25, injured the shoulder in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series celebrating a home run that proved to be the game-winner against the Atlanta Braves. He exchanged a celebratory forearm slam with Enrique Hernandez after the homer and said he dislocated his right shoulder when the two came together.

Bellinger slashed just .212/.316/.455 with four homers and 13 RBIs in 18 postseason games amid the Dodgers’ run to the World Series title. The 2019 Most Valuable Player hit .239/.333/.455 with 12 homers and 30 RBIs during the shortened regular season.
