Bellinger, who as usual bats cleanup on Tuesday for the Dodgers at first base, is hitting .269/.324/.612 with six home runs in 74 plate appearances against left-handed pitchers.
Bellinger, named to the Home Run Derby on Monday, has gone seven games and 31 plate appearances without a home run, the longest drought of his young career. He is 4-for-27 (.148) with a double and four walks during that span.
The Diamondbacks got a boost back for their offense and defense, activating outfielder A.J. Pollock from the disabled list. He missed 44 games with a right groin strain.
Pollock, who only played 12 games in a lost 2016 for Arizona, is hitting .299/.337/.455 with 17 extra-base hits and 11 steals in 37 games this season.
Pollock is leading off and in center field for the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.
