The ballots are in and the Dodgers stand atop the NL as having the top pitcher and rookie for the month of May. The Southpaw Assasin and future ROY helped lead the Dodgers out of the .500 doldrums and to the top of the NL West, and now they are being honored by all of baseball.
Alex Wood was lights out in May. He went 5-0 with a 1.27 ERA, 41 Ks and only 7 walks, with a 1.02 WHIP. Unfortunately, he’s currently on the Dodgers’ 10 day DL with joint inflammation, so the Dodgers Nation is waiting for more information on that.
Wood is also holding on to the Major League’s top consecutive innings scoreless streak at 25 1/3 innings.
Cody Bellinger‘s nubers were as impressive from the offensive side of the ball. He put up a line of .245/.315/.566 and an incredible .880 for May. He scored 22 runs and had 26 hits with 5 doubles, 1 triple and 9 home runs and 27 RBIs. He’s played both infield and outfield, recently making highlight worthy catches from left field.
Congratulations, boys! You earned it.
