But I think if you look within the at-bats and what he does, the presence on the bench when he’s not starting to give that left-hander (in the lineup) a third at-bat or to take a quality at-bat, that’s a lot of value. It’s still an adjustment for him as far as not starting a game, then coming into a game. But his at-bat quality has been very consistent” External link

Dave Roberts said ( about Cody Bellinger ) : “I think it (Bellinger’s swing) wasn’t where we would have liked it, he would have liked it before the injury,” “I think he was grinding. Obviously it was just 20-something plate appearances, so not much of a sample. But I do believe that being healthy, working in Arizona, working on the mechanics part of it as he was rehabbing. We were fortunate enough to have (assistant hitting coach) Aaron Bates travel with him at times. So he’s in a really good place, mechanically, mentally. No one can predict the results, but I think where he’s at right now is really good” External link
