Josh Bell knocks a single against the Reds

Josh Bell went 1-for-4 with a single on Sunday against the Reds as the Pirates fell.

Fantasy Impact

Bell collected a hit in the loss on Sunday and struck out once. He’s only hitting .245 with four home runs on the season in a disappointing campaign. Bell flashed average potential his rookie campaign, power in his sophomore season, but unfortunately has not been able to replicate either results. He’s maintaining his plate discipline but other than that his power and contact skills have not manifested themselves this season.

Josh Bell knocks three hits against Diamondbacks

Josh Bell went 3-for-5 Tuesday with two doubles, a single and an RBI against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

It was Bell's third game with three hits this season and his first since the middle of April. Bell has had a disappointing season so far with only four home runs and a .244 batting average. Even with three hits he's still only batting .172 in June which is a testament to how much he's struggled. He's still got the same walk and strikeout rate so it's not like his plate discipline is gone. It's possible he can return to form with better quality of contact, but he needs to make a change to increase his hard hit rate.

Josh Bell scores a run against the Cubs on Sunday

Josh Bell went 1-for-1 with three walks and scored one run against the Cubs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Bell has been a disappointment this season hitting just .237 with four home runs on the year. The 25-year-old first baseman has a ton of potential and could break out at any time. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on Bell and grab him if he does.

Josh Bell drives in run on a force out Wednesday

Josh Bell pinch hit and drove in a run on a force out, going 0-for-1 with an RBI on Wednesday as the Pirates defeated the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Bell did not get the start, but pinch hit for Trevor Williams in the third inning. He managed to reach on a force out, scoring David Freese. Bell sat in favor of Freese at first base on Wednesday. He has been in a bad slump lately, hitting .091 in his last seven games. Bell has not been able to replicate his pace in home runs or average from his past couple of years. His plate discipline is still intact and he is still hitting the ball hard as often as he always had, however his home run to fly ball rate is down. We should see Bell regress in a positive manner, hitting better as the season continues.

Josh Bell crushes a home run against the Cardinals

Josh Bell went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday in the Pirates loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Bell knocked his fourth home run of the season in the fifth inning off Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty with one runner on. His bat has been warming up as the season progresses into summer. In May, Bell has hit .280 with three of his four homers. Despite hitting more fly balls and a hard hit percentage consistent with his career numbers, his home runs have been down. His very low home run to fly ball rate should start to level out and his power should come at a better clip when it does.
