Bell split the first 10 games at designated hitter and first base, where he has already committed four fielding errors. His unfamiliarity with the position has proven problematic.
"Getting to feel overall comfortable has been the biggest challenge," Bell told MLB.com. "I'm sure that will come with reps. When I get more playing time, I'll be able to just run with it, react. It's definitely something different. You're a lot more active. It keeps you more in the game, always on your toes."
Bell is coming off another strong year offensively, batting .325 with nine home runs, 60 RBI and nine stolen bases at the Class A Advanced and Double-A levels combined.
Pedro Alvarez made 25 errors last season, and the team will discuss a possible transition to first base moving forward. In that scenario, Davis would be out of a role with his new club, and would be a candidate to be dealt. Davis hit .233/.344/.378 over 360 at-bats with the Mets and Pirates.
General manager Neal Huntington has said the club will do whatever it can to retain Martin, but there's some believe he's already priced himself out of Pittsburgh's budget. The club reportedly offered Martin a long-term deal during the season, but Martin declined.
With the qualifying offer, Martin could return to the Pirates for one season at a $15.3 million salary. He's expected to receive a lucrative multi-year deal on the market, so he may end up declining that offer. Martin hit .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats.
The club made an attempt to re-sign Martin at some point during the season, but the catcher declined. The team pushed off extension talks into the season, but Martin quickly boosted his value. It's believed the Pirates will do everything they can to try and keep him, but Martin may have pushed himself out of their price range. Martin hit a solid .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats with the club.
