Bellinger is on the IL with what the Dodgers have called a left calf contusion. This indicates it is more of a deep bruise than a strain, which I hope is the case. Calf strains are one of those tricky injuries that tend to linger.

Bellinger was involved in an awkward collision at first base as he tried to leg out a grounder. He was spiked in the back of his left leg by the pitcher trying to cover the bag. Our algorithm is considering this a grade 1 (mild) calf injury. It should heal within three weeks, although I expect him to return to the lineup sooner than that. Bellinger isn’t dealing with any structural damage or fractures, so he just needs time for any swelling and stiffness caused by the contusion to dissipate.

The Statcast xBA formula seems to say his BABIP was unlucky. I agree.

Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's Cactus League contest against Arizona.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bellinger played the entirety of the seven-inning game, giving the Dodgers a short-lived lead with a solo blast in the top of the seventh. The 2019 NL MVP spent the first half of camp ramping up after offseason shoulder surgery, but he has gotten into two games this week and appears on track to be ready by Opening Day.

As I'd said before - I relied heavily on Peter's bid targets when doing CBS.

Result - none of the high end hitters - Blackmon and Pham (at 23) were my two most expensive hitters.  Just kept passing on the Bellingers et al who seemed to go for $5-10 over tic.

A nice group of high end starters - much more than I'd usually buy - but it was because I was willing to pay close to tic for older studs (Scherzer 29, Kershaw 25, Strasburg 21)*.

Comparing to Peter's target prices - the cumulative was great - +52 for hitters, +10 for pitchers, leading to $322 worth of Peter's bid value for the team.  

When I compare to Tout, I end up +2 for my CBS bids versus the Tout Bids.  In particular, Tout penalized the older starters even more - Scherzer/Strasburg/Kershaw went for 62, versus my CBS 75 (and Peter's 77).

But thanks to budget moderation, there was money left for mid-lower end middle infielders - my $2 Villar went for $12, my $15 Gregorius for $19.  Meanwhile Starlin Castro went for $11 instead of $3, Segura for $20 instead of $8, Rodgers $13 instead of $4, Newman $6 instead of $1, Hoerner $7 instead of $2.  That's $53 worth of catchup over 8 players.

$30 in LABR after $37 in CBS.

It's the middle of round three, still plenty of money left. There aren't going to be bargains in the middle rounds and probably not at the end.

Bellinger (shoulder) is still limited but should be fully healthy by the start of the regular season, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bellinger required offseason surgery after dislocating his shoulder during a celebration in the NLCS. He's still taking swings with only one hand, but he's expected to take full swings and go through defensive drills without limitations once full-squad workouts begin in late February.

This from Rotowire. As with Shed Long, subscribers see a profile posted by Rotoman 12 hours ago that includes, among other things, the number of hits Bellinger lost to the shift.

Bellinger (shoulder) is healing well and has begun his recovery process, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bellinger underwent surgery to repair a dislocated right shoulder that he hurt during a celebration in Game 7 of the NLCS. Manager Dave Roberts revealed Thursday that his rehab is underway, and he's progressing well so far. The center fielder is expected to be "somewhat active" early in spring training, and the injury isn't anticipated to impact his availability as the Dodgers' starting center fielder.
