Dodgers' Cody Bellinger held out Monday

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger was removed from Monday's Cactus League lineup due to pregame side discomfort.

What It Means:

It was also reported that Bellinger wanted to play, but was held out for precautionary reasons. The Dodgers won't take any chances with the health of last year's leader in total bases.

Bellinger, a top pick in fantasy drafts this year, is projected for a .298 batting average with 42 home runs, 109 RBI, 112 runs and 14 stolen bases in 2020 according to numberFire.
