Josh Bell is biding his time in AAA for the Baltimore Orioles

23-year old righty swinging 3B Josh Bell came to the Orioles from the Dodgers last summer in the George Sherrill trade. He is the O’s #2 prospect according to Baseball America coming into this season. Bell has played in 32 games in AAA-ball this season and he is 32 of 125 (.256 avg, .747 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 6 homers and 21 RBIs. But he still has some work to do with his swing as he has also whiffed 35 times this year. Bell has now played in 447 games in his six years in the minors and he is 470 of 1,640 (.287 avg, .834 OPS) with 256 runs scored, 62 homers, 263 RBIs and 22 stolen bases. If the Orioles raise the White Flag in July and trade Miguel Tejada then Bell could get the call to the show then to make his major league debut. But the Orioles are under no pressure to rush Bell so they likely won’t bring him up until he is ready.
