Over the weekend, Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game mentioned that a source put the chances of the Pittsburgh Pirates signing 2011 2nd round pick Josh Bell at 60%.  Today, Rogers provides another update, saying that a source that was previously 50/50 on Bell signing is now 70/30 in favor of Texas.  Another source Rogers talked to said it was all but a done deal that he will go to Texas.

We will probably hear a lot of odds and speculation on whether Bell signs between now and August 15th, but it’s a situation where we won’t know the result until the deadline actually arrives.
