Pirates' Josh Bell: Four hits in win over Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 4-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Reds.

The first baseman has endured a rough sophomore campaign so far, slashing only .267/.350/.407 with five homers in 98 games, but he's at least started to string together some hits -- Bell's posted a .355 batting average (22-for-62) over his last 19 games. If he can also re-discover the power stroke that allowed him to slug 26 homers last year, the 25-year-old could put together a big stretch run for a Pirates squad still in the wild-card race.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Second half rebound?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 7-for-15 and reached base 12 times in 20 at-bats in the five-game series against Milwaukee leading up to the All-Star break.

Although the first baseman hit 26 homers in 2017, that power has evaporated this year. He's belted only five home runs in 326 at-bats in 2018. Bell never hit more than 14 homers in parts of five minor-league seasons, but with a 6-foot-4, 235-pound frame, it was thought that the 25-year-old might produce numbers similar to 2017. He's slashed .317/.417/.455 in 120 plate appearances since moving out of the cleanup spot, giving hope he can continue raising a disappointing .738 OPS.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Falls homer shy of cycle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell went 4-for-4 with a triple, a double, one run scored and two RBI in Friday's win over Milwaukee.

Bell struck in the first inning as he collected his 44th RBI of the season on a double to put the Pirates up 3-0. He's collected a hit in seven of his last 10 games, although he's logged no home runs and just two RBI over that span, so his power numbers have certainly been down of late. Bell is slugging a dismal .396 with five homers over 93 games this season, after launching 26 homers with a .466 slugging percentage in 2017.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Not in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is not starting Monday against the Nationals.

Bell was tried at leadoff for the Pirates' last three games but went just 2-for-13. He'll sit Monday with David Freese starting at first base.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Moves up in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell has batted leadoff in the last two games, going a combined 1-for-9 with a double and run scored.

Pittsburgh is looking for ways to jumpstart the offense and nothing seems to be working. After falling to a season-low .233 batting average on June 9, Bell has slashed .301/.395/.425 in his last 86 plate appearances. He's hit only five home runs and holds an overall OPS of .709, however. Many envisioned Bell taking over as the face of the franchise following Andrew McCutchen's departure, but things haven't yet clicked for the 25-year-old.
