3 Dodgers Are in the Top 10 Worst Batting Averages in All of Baseball

The Los Angeles Dodgers are leading the league in a lot of categories, and it's no surprise, as the team is a powerhouse, built to win. 

However, there's yet another category the team is leading in that you might not have thought.

The top 10 worst batting averages in all of baseball looks like this:

1. Joey Gallo - .160
2. Max Muncy - .168
3. Trent Grisham - .197
4. Geraldo Perdomo - .200
5. Christian Walker - .201
6. Kyle Schwarber - .203
7. Cody Bellinger - .203
8. Jonathan Schoop - .205
9. Kole Calhoun - .211
10. Tony Kemp - .214

There are three Dodgers players in there, Joey Gallo, Max Muncy, and Cody Bellinger. 
These are not perrenial players who hit for bad averages, however. 

Well, Joey Gallo could be an exception. Gallo hit just .199 last season but cranked 38 home runs and 77 RBIs. Compare that with his just 12 home runs and 24 RBIs this season, and it's clear he's having a down year.

Max Muncy, on the other hand, is having a very curious season. He's hitting just .168, with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs. Last season, he hit .249, with 36 home runs and 94 RBIs, and finished 10th in MVP voting. He has dealt with injuries all season, so this might be the cause of his down year. 

Cody Bellinger is an odd case. After winning the MVP award in the 2019 season, Bellinger has struggled, really struggled. In the three years since the 2019 season, he's hit just .198, with 35 home runs and 107 RBIs in 248 games. In his MVP season, in just 156 games, Bellinger hit .305, with 47 home runs and 115 RBIs. So, what's happened to him?

Really, the question is what's happened to all these players this season? It doesn't seem to be affecting the Dodgers, as the team currently sits first in all of baseball with a 72-33 record.

Let's hope these players can find their swings again because, when on their game, they are some of the most fun players to watch.
