According to Jeff Passan, Cody Bellinger and the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed on a one-year, $17 million to avoid arbitration before the Dec. 1 lockout that has shut down Major League Baseball and frozen transactions.

Bellinger, 26, struggled during the regular season as he hit .165/.240/.302 with 10 home runs in 95 games. In the postseason however, redemption hit and we saw flashes of the 2019 National League MVP Cody Bellinger.
