Josh Bell's career back on track
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfield prospect Josh Bell, who was limited to 15 games in 2012 because of a torn meniscus in his left knee, has his career back on track. The 2011 second-round pick leads the South Atlantic League in RBI (21) and doubles (10).

"Last year was frustrating, but it's just part of playing the game," Bell said to MLB.com. "Injuries happen, and I just tried to take it day-by-day and do what I could to get back on the field. I'm back now, and I feel good about the way everything is going."

Bell has had hot and cold streaks, but he's batting .284 with a .519 slugging percentage and .844 OPS in 18 games. He's added three home runs and 17 runs.

"I'm seeing the ball really well right now and discovering what I can and can't do against some very good pitchers," Bell said. "I know I have a lot of things to work on, but it's definitely a better feeling to be on the field and playing compared to what I experienced last season."

Bell is considered the Pirates' sixth-best prospect by MLB.com.

"I feel great. It's good to be back," Bell said. "The body feels good, and I'm just excited for the season."

The 20-year-old is 14 for 50 (.280) with one homer and 14 RBI through 11 games this season.
