Josh Bell News
Miami Marlins first baseman Josh Bell has decided to stick around for at least one more season. The 31-year-old slugger has decided to accept his $16.5 player option for the 2024 season. On paper, this appears to be a good decision on both sides. Last season, Bell slashed .270/.338/.480 with 11 homers and 26 RBI over 224 plate appearances in his 53 games with the Marlins. He figures to play everyday and will be locked into a spot in the middle of the lineup.
Miami Marlins first baseman Josh Bell did his part on Tuesday, but the team came up short in a 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of the wild-card series. Bell finished the contest 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored. He had three of the team's seven hits on the night. The 31-year-old veteran left-handed hitter has done his fair share of damage against the Phillies this year and will hope to keep it going in Game 2 on Wednesday as the Fish look to keep their season alive and force a deciding Game 3 on Thursday in Philadelphia. Bell has a pretty big challenge on his hands in Game 2 against Phils right-hander Aaron Nola, who he has gone just 5-for-27 (.185) against in his career, although he does have two home runs, a double and five RBI against him.
Miami Marlins first baseman Josh Bell smashed a solo shot in the fourth frame while batting left-handed, and in the eighth inning, he blasted a three-run homer from the right side of the plate. His second home run evened up the score at 4-4 with the Reds. Bell is the first Marlins player in their 31-year history to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in a single contest. The 30-year-old has 14 home runs and 55 RBI in 378 trips to the plate in 2023.
Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Bell is looking to regain his form on his new team, which will be his third in less than a year. Bell started 2022 on the Nationals and was very good, rating out as a top 100 roto player. Unfortunately, after his trade to San Diego, he fell off a cliff. His overall line was mediocre; he hit .262 with 17 homers, 71 RBI, and 78 runs. His rough final stretch has clearly jaded fantasy players, as he currently has an ADP of 185.2. Considering his solid track record of 20+ homers and the likelihood his counting stats return to form after moving away from Washington's dreadful offense, Bell can be looked at as a value pick late in drafts. His .272 xBA, .349 xwOBA, 15.8 K%, and 12.5 BB% all point to him providing solid production across the board (except steals) in both roto and points leagues. Look for Bell as a solid corner infielder in deep leagues, or as a great backup option at first base in any league.
