Pittsburgh Pirates rumors: Josh Bell addition

Josh Bell (Photo Credit: KDKA) The Chicago Cubs were in Bradenton, Florida last week scouting Pittsburgh Pirates outfield prospect Josh Bell, who is ranked No. 59 on the MLB’s Top 100 Prospect List. With the trio of Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco, the Pirates outfield seems to be set for several years. This is why Bell may be trade bait as the Pirates make...

Prospect Notebook: Can Josh Bell Be a Future Power Hitter in the Majors?

The West Virginia Power played a total of 12 games in Lakewood this year, so I got to see a little more of the team than usual. Early in the season, it was the power display by Stetson Allie and the pitching of Tyler Glasnow that impressed me the most.

Minor League Results: Dodson, Bell, Mathisen, Herrera

Zack Dodson Zack Dodson Zack Dodson started off looking a little shaky Wednesday against the Phillies. But he quickly shifted to dominance. In a 3-2 win, very much a group effort, with Dodson the star of the show.

First Pitch: What Are the Expectations For Josh Bell in 2013?

Josh Bell lost a year last year, and in the process, fell off all of the national top 100 lists. Every Pirates top 10 list that I’ve seen has Gregory Polanco and Alen Hanson ahead of Bell after those two had breakout seasons while Bell was out with his injury. So what can we expect in 2013 from Bell, after he missed the majority of the 2012 season? First, I don’t think that the...
