A little more than a month after undergoing surgery on his left knee, Pirates first baseman Josh Bell made his Spring Training debut on Monday at LECOM Park.
Spin: Bell started at first base, went 0-for-2 with a walk and played five innings in the Pirates' 13-1 win over the Yankees, his first game action of the spring. The 24-year-old switch-hitter has felt fine, physically, for weeks following surgery on Feb. 1, but he was held out of game action until Monday. "After the surgery itself, I felt really good," Bell said. "It was just proving I felt good to the staff and checking all the boxes off when it comes to rehab and progressions. Now, I'm finally here and I feel great." All signs point to Bell being ready for Opening Day.
BRADENTON, Fla.- The contact wasnt what Josh Bell had in mind: He dribbled a slow roller down the first-base line in his first spring training at-bat. Batting from the left side, Bell had to push off his left leg and sprint down the line.
