Dodgers News: Cody Bellinger Exits vs. Reds with Apparent Knee Injury

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger left Monday's game against the Cincinnati Reds after getting hit by a pitch in the bottom of the third inning.

Bellinger took a 95 mph fastball to his right knee from Reds starter Luis Castillo. Alex Verdugo replaced him in right field for the start of the fourth, per Alanna Rizzo of SportsNet LA.

Bellinger made a trip to the disabled list in 2017 due to an ankle injury but appeared in all 162 regular-season games last year.

One year after setting the National League rookie record for home runs (39) en route to earning the 2017 National League Rookie of the Year and an All-Star selection, Bellinger took a slight step back in 2018.
