Longtime Padres closer Heath Bell calls it a career at 37
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Heath Bell, who was released by the Nationals on Monday, told Corey Brock of MLB.com on Tuesday he has decided to call it a career.

"My kids wanted me home," Bell said. "What's more important: my kids or the big leagues? I've already accomplished more than I ever dreamed of. Now it's time to help them accomplish their dreams."

Bell, 37, spent his MLB career with five different teams, but saw his most successful stint with the Padres from 2007-2011. The right-hander earned three trips to the All-Star game during his stint with the Padres, registering a 2.53 ERA with 134 saves as the team's closer. He reached at least 40 saves in each of his three All-Star seasons.

Bell finished his big-league career with a 3.49 ERA and 168 saves.

Nationals' Heath Bell in the best shape of his life
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals reliever Heath Bell reported to camp in the best shape of his life, according to The Washington Post

Bell claims to have lost 40 pounds during the offseason in an attempt to get in better shape for the season. After signing a minor-league deal with the club during the offseason, Bell will have to earn his spot on the major-league roster during the spring. 

Bell said he wanted to make a good impression with his new club. "I wanted to come into camp and people say, 'He works his butt off,'" Bell said. "I still need to get people out. It’s just gonna make me look nicer." In order to get in better shape, Bell trained for two triathlons during the offseason. He also made sure to eat healthier. 

While Bell faces an uphill climb in order to make the team, he believes he can do so if he performs.  "I feel like my chances are how I perform on the mound and getting batters out."

Bell posted a 7.27 ERA over 17 1/3 innings last year.
