That would get everyone AB’s, and keep them fresh in the field.

If Garcia, Barnes and Polanco have the three outfield spots in A+, where would Bell play. It would be a good thing if Bell were to finish the season at Bradenton.

If he plays great D-fence and hits for avg. or better then he will more than likely be a starter. Power would be a bonus at the SS position I would think.

Are you expecting him to start the year in WV?

Also, it would be a lot of fun to watch Bradenton play this year with a Barnes/Polanco/Garcia outfield, no? With JBell pushing in from the side?

Good stuff.

Maybe they want both him and Polanco playing center every day.

He would have to have a brutal camp for that to happen.
