25 second-half MLB storylines to keep an eye on

Yardbarker Logo By Seth Trachtman of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 25: Bellinger won the NL Rookie of the Year in 2017 but regressed last season. After making some mechanical adjustments, he's now a top candidate to win NL MVP and possibly even the Triple Crown, ranking second in batting average (.344), second in home runs (30) and second in RBI (71) as of July 4. His second half should be fun to watch, as he puts the finishing touches on an epic season.
