Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger’s right shoulder “popped out” of place in the 4th inning of Friday night’s game against the Padres. He dove for a line drive off of Eric Hosmer’s bat and got up slowly holding his shoulder.
Bellinger stayed in the game after popping his own shoulder back into place.
After the game, Bellinger revealed that it wasn’t the first time his shoulder popped out and he’ll be fine. Not only did he not leave the game, he’s not expected to miss any time with the bum shoulder.
#Dodgers Cody Bellinger said his right shoulder "popped out" on that dive at 1B. Has happened before (once last year). Popped right back in. "I'm fine now." Roberts said they'll see if there's any residual soreness tomorrow

Who needs a right shoulder when you’re left handed? Hopefully it stays in place when he’s swinging the bat, because those can be some nasty injuries when they occur while taking a monster hack.
