|April 25, in a 2-1 win over the Giants. The starting left fielder, he batted eighth and went 1-for-3 with a walk. In the top of the third he led off the inning with a popout to shortstop.

After finishing ninth in batting in the Arizona Fall League in 2016 with a .314 average, the son of former MLB infielder Clay Bellinger is an experienced, mature player who is a student of the game and makes adjustments quickly as needed.
