Bell is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.
Bell's .250/.308/.444 line thus far in June is nothing special, but it's at least better than the .207/.268/.400 line he produced in the first two months of the year. He'll sit in favor of Ryan Zimmerman on Tuesday.
Bell went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday's victory over the Pirates.

Bell is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.
The lefty-hitting Bell typically starts against right-handed pitching, but he'll be on the bench Sunday even with righty Johnny Cueto on the bump for San Francisco.

Ryan Zimmerman gets another start in Bell's stead.

Bell socked a solo shot in the eighth inning off reliever Jose Alvarado, but that would be everything he'd do in a game where the Nationals struggled badly on offense.

Bell will sit Thursday against Atlanta.
Bell finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games and the third time in six contests. His .668 OPS, which is a near match for his .669 OPS from last season, doesn't exactly make a strong case for him earning everyday at-bats. Ryan Zimmerman will start at first base in his absence versus Atlanta lefty Tucker Davidson.

Bell finds himself benched for the second time in three games. It's hard to argue he deserves more playing time, as he's hitting .172/.239/.343 on the season, though he does have six hits in his last four games. Ryan Zimmerman starts at first base in his absence.
Bell is not in the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Bell went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Phillies.
Bell took Zach Eflin deep in the opening frame for his fourth homer of the season. He had only one home run through his first 13 games, but he has now delivered three in his last 11 contests.
