Josh Bell out of the lineup on Saturday

by Dan Harris | Nationals Correspondent | Sat, Jul 17th 3:30pm EDT

Josh Bell is not in the Nationals' lineup for their Saturday game against the Padres.

Fantasy Impact:

Bell often cedes his spot to Ryan Zimmerman when there's a lefty on the mound, as there is on Saturday with Blake Snell on the hill for the Padres. Bell is batting just .177 on the season against lefties and has just a .226 career mark against them, so expect him to continue to ride the pine often in these situations. Managers are best off checking his weekly matchups and benching him if he is scheduled to face more than one lefty.
