3. Cody Bellinger

Obviously not a Dodger last season, Cody Bellinger maintains a strong "former Dodger" connection none the less for having played his first six years in L.A., becoming a star in the process.

While he left coming off a couple down years, his 2022 campaign with the Chicago Cubs absolutely confirmed that he's still as dangerous as ever, slashing .307/.356/.525 with 26 home runs, 97 RBI and 20 stolen bases. He also cut his strikeout rate to a career-low 15.6%.

At 28 years old, Bellinger has been one of the biggest free agents on the market this offseason, and he's arguably the most impactful non-pitcher available (and at worst the second-most, if you prefer Matt Chapman).

Cubs fans are still hopeful that they'll reunite with the 2023 NL Comeback Player of the Year, but the Toronto Blue Jays have also emerged as one potential landing spot.

There's also a chance that Bellinger comes back to L.A. — just not to play for the Dodgers. The Angels are also rumored to be interested in Bellinger, though you've gotta think he'd much prefer playing for the Cubs or the Jays.
