How much would Bellinger's catch on Oct. 25 -- and then the video analysis that Peter links to -- have affected the voting for the Fielding Bible Awards (which do not include the postseason)?

The complete vote tally in the Handbook:

Kevin Kiermaier 51

Byron Buxton 51

Luis Robert 27

Jackie Bradley Jr. 24

Ramon Laureano 15

Trent Grisham 8

Harrison Bader 3

Victor Robles 1

Kiermaier won on a tie-breaker.

In Defensive Runs Saved by centerfielders, Bellinger tied for seventh with Bradley, Laureano and Lewis Brinson (5). Ahead of them: Buxton (11), Keirmaier (10), Robert (8), Grisham (7), Leody Taveras (6) and George Springer (6).

In 2019 the Fielding Bible voters were wowed by Bellinger. He finished first with 112 points, four more than Mookie Betts.

In right field.

Cody Bellinger (1B) LA - Nov. 17

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=761529

Bellinger underwent surgery to repair his dislocated right shoulder Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bellinger's injury occurred while celebrating a homer in Game 7 of the NLCS. The injury evidently was serious enough to require surgery despite the fact that he remained on the roster for the World Series. Recovery from the procedure is expected to take 10 weeks, which should give him the time to be ready by the start of spring training.

Yes, excellent.

I wonder what kind of jump Sandy Amaros got?

Jump! Not a Van Halen tribute (and an excellent story): MLB.com.

I doubt the Rays were amused by the foot bumps but I was.

Cody Bellinger (1B) LA - Jul. 13

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=743124

Bellinger showed up to camp with an altered swing, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The specifics of Bellinger's new swing aren't yet clear. While it's rather unusual to see a player tinker with his mechanics following a season in which he hit .305/.406/.629 with 47 homers, the 25-year-old was reportedly unhappy with his second half last year. After hitting .336/.432/.692 prior to the break, he hit .261/.370/.544 the rest of the way as his line-drive rate fell from 31.2 percent to 19.1 percent. Whether or not the changes have the desired effect remains to be seen.

Rfield -- Runs from Fielding: Number of runs better or worse than average the player was for all fielding.

Note: season age on Baseball-Reference is determined by the player's age on June 30th, traditionally the midpoint of the season. Due to the extremely late start of the 2020 season, Bellinger will be playing his age-24 season even though his 25th birthday now came before the season could begin.
