Pirates' Josh Bell: Goes deep off righty Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 1-for-4 with his 14th homer -- and second in three games -- Friday against St. Louis.

The switch-hitter continues to show defining splits which could help decide whether to start him or sit him. Against right-handed pitching, Bell is slashing .257/.340/.497 with 10 homers and 25 RBI in 187 at-bats. Southpaws are limiting the rookie to .169/.246/.390 with four homers and eight RBI in 59 at-bats.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Clubs 13th homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Brewers.

The 24-year-old is now chasing history, as his 13 homers leave him just two shy of Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner's franchise rookie record for home runs in the first half. Bell's .235 batting average is a disappointment considering he routinely challenged or broke the .300 mark in the minors. but as his game continues to develop the switch hitter could emerge as a legitimate four-category fantasy producer.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Heads to bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers.

Bell is hitless over his last two contests (0-for-8), so he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting six straight games. Jose Osuna will start at first base in his place.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Plates three runs against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, three RBI and two runs during Friday's loss to the Cubs.

It's been an up-and-down sophomore campaign for Bell. He's made the most of his .238 batting average and .319 on-base percentage with a serviceable 12 homers, 30 RBI and 33 runs. Bell has also carved out a role in the heart of the Pittsburgh lineup, so that will help buoy his fantasy value going forward.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Second season somewhat bumpy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 0-for-3 with a walk Wednesday against the Rockies.

He's hit 11 homers with 27 RBI but has struggled in recent weeks. Since May 20, Bell is batting .200/.277/.322 with two home runs and eight RBI in 101 plate appearances. His error at first base Wednesday led to a run, but the Pirates seem committed to keeping there -- he's made some improvements despite his overall poor defense. In fact, Bell has been lifted for a defensive replacement in only one of his last 10 starts.
