Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger always had superstar written all over him, but few would have predicted a season like THIS, and definitely not this early into his career.

Bellinger is not only leading the majors in batting at .378, he also tops the leaderboards with 54RBI and 20 home runs. But he's been getting on base at a historic rate, reaching safely in 57 of the 58 starts he's had this year. Oh, and he's also cracking along on a 12-game hitting streak.

Bellinger's trademark tomahawk swing has been lighting the NL on fire this year, with no signs of slowing down.

Bellinger, a free swinger in both his rookie and sophomore seasons, has learned to become more disciplined and make more consistent contact, which has turned him from a pure power hitter into bonafide superstar.

Anytime you're breaking one of Babe Ruth's records, you're doing something right at the plate.

It's early June and we have a player on pace for a .374/52/141 season with 209 hits. Given the fact that his May was almost as ridiculous as his record-breaking April, we could be in for something special with Bellinger in 2019.
