Puig – Nobody – Pederson – Seager – Bellinger

Home runs are up all over baseball and nowhere is that more apparent than at Dodger Stadium where rookie after rookie keep launching home runs.

Prior to 2014, the most LAD rookie home runs was the magic 35 by Mike Piazza in 1993. The 2nd most was 23 by Frank Howard back in 1960 before Dodger Stadium was built. Eric Karros and Greg Brock were tied for 3rd with 20.

Eric Karros (20), Mike Piazza (35), and Raul Mondesi (16) combined for 71 home runs from 1992 – 1994.

Joc Pederson (26), Corey Seager (26), and Cody Bellinger (17 and counting) have combined for 69 home runs. It is just a matter of time before Bellinger passes twenty giving the Dodgers three rookies in three years to hit at least 20 home runs.

When you look at the leaderboard below it is crazy that Bellinger has seventeen home runs in only 185 plate appearances.
