  • Bell went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two additional runs during Saturday's 7-3 victory against the Angels. Bell opened the scoring with a solo shot in the first inning, walked and scored in the fourth and singled and scored in the fifth. This is Bell's third instance reaching base three times in six games this month and he's still slashing a robust .351/.452/.546, all of which rank top 12 in MLB.

  • Bell went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's 10-2 win over the Rockies. The first baseman hadn't homered in 17 games prior to crushing a German Marquez fastball the other way in the third inning Tuesday, but Bell has been extremely productive despite the lack of over-the-fence power. He's reeled off three multi-hit performances over the last four games, and in 24 contests on the season he's slashing .366/.464/.549 with three homers, 16 runs and 18 RBI.

  • Bell went 4-for-6 with a double, two runs and an RBI in a 14-4 win against the Giants on Friday. Bell and the rest of the Nationals teed off on the Giants as he got on in the third, sixth, eighth and ninth innings and was responsible for four of 22 hits. The impressive outing raised the 29-year-old's line to .357/.458/.514. Bell is top 10 in both average and OBP, though that has come at the cost of power, as his ISO of .157 is well below a career mark of .205.

  • Bell (hamstring) will start at first base and bat cleanup in Tuesday's game against the Marlins. Bell was held out of Sunday's 12-3 loss to the Giants after tweaking his right hamstring in Saturday's game, but the day out of the lineup plus Monday's off day evidently provided enough time for him to heal up from the injury. The Nationals could look to use Bell as a designated hitter at some point the next few days to get him off his feet, but he otherwise looks like he'll be in store for a full slate of at-bats during the Nationals' six-game week.

  • Manager Dave Martinez said the MRI on Bell's right hamstring came back "pretty clean," but the first baseman won't be in the lineup Sunday against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. He could be available off the bench as a pinch hitter. The 29-year-old was removed from Saturday's contest with tightness in his right hamstring, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. Bell also exited a contest earlier this week with a knee issue but didn't end up missing any time for that injury. He'll have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially sitting out additional games. Maikel Franco will shift to first base in his place while Lucius Fox fills in at the hot corner.
