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.
