Dodgers’ Outfielder Cody Bellinger Undergoes Shoulder Surgery, Expected to Miss 10 Weeks

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger underwent surgery Tuesday for his right shoulder and is expected to miss 10 weeks. Bellinger dislocated his right shoulder while celebrating a home run in the Dodgers 4-3 victory versus the Atlanta Braves in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series. Bellinger’s shoulder popped out of place when he used his forearm to celebrate with teammate Kike Hernandez, after hitting a seventh-inning home run.

Despite missing 10 weeks of play, the timeline puts Bellinger on track to return for Major League Baseball spring training. Spring training is scheduled to begin on Feb. 27 with each of the 30 clubs in action for Cactus and Grapefruit League games.
