There’s that for the wild stat of the day.
Cody Bellinger, a lefty, is the first MLB hitter to record 40 RBIs off left-handed pitchers this season.
As one of the few Los Angeles Dodgers that is safe from Dave Roberts’ daily platoon swaps, the NL MVP frontrunner had a .306 average with 44 homers and 108 RBIs as of Friday, September 13th. Here are his insane splits:
Vs. LHP: 179 AB, .279 AVG, 17 HR, 40 RBI, 30 BB, 36 K
Vs. RHP: 334 AB, .317 AVG, 27 HR, 68 RBI, 59 BB, 63 K
As you can see, both splits are elite, but his power numbers against southpaws as a left-handed hitter are simply rare. The guy has absolutely no holes in his all-around game right now and should continue to add to his MVP-worthy campaign over the final couple weeks of the regular season.
