  • Marlins' Josh Bell: Exercises option to stay in Miami

    Bell exercised his $16.5 million player option for 2024 on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Bell began the season with the Guardians and struggled to a .701 OPS, but he thrived after arriving in Miami at the trade deadline, batting .270/.338/.480 with 11 home runs over 53 games for the Marlins down the stretch. The 31-year-old currently projects as the team's starting first baseman for 2024, although the Marlins could shift Bell to the designated hitter role if they find someone else to handle first.

  • Marlins' Josh Bell: Cracks three hits in loss

    Bell went 3-for-4 with two doubles and one run in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Phillies in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series.

    Bell did plenty of damage against the Phillies in the regular season, slashing .357/.455/.536 in eight games with one home run, four RBI and three runs. He continued that trend into the postseason Tuesday with his two doubles, the first coming against Zack Wheeler in the seventh and eventually resulting in Bell scoring the only run for the Marlins. The second two-bagger, which came off Phillies closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth, also had a chance to be consequential, but Bell was stranded to end the game. The multi-hit tally was an extension of Bell's strong career postseason numbers, which now included a .300 average and .842 OPS across 41 plate appearances over 11 playoff contests.

He has enjoyed a nice turnaround since joining the Marlins from the Guardians at the trade deadline, hitting .276 with 11 home runs, 26 runs and 21 RBI over 48 games. Bell had previously hit .233 with 11 home runs, 26 runs and 48 RBI over 97 games in Cleveland.

  • Marlins' Josh Bell: Snaps homer drought Wednesday

    Bell went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and a double in a loss to the Mets on Wednesday.

    Bell accounted for half of Miami's scoring output with his 417-foot solo shot in the sixth inning. The veteran slugger had gone 14 games without a long ball prior to the blast, slashing .216/.273/.255 with a 30.9 percent strikeout rate over the cold stretch. He's slowed down quite a bit after slamming eight home runs over his first 26 contests as a Marlin.

  • Marlins' Josh Bell: Homers in win

    Bell went 1-for-4 with a two-run home in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Dodgers.

    Bell put the Marlins ahead 3-2 in the fifth inning with a two-run blast off Clayton Kershaw, his 20th homer of the year. Bell had cooled off slightly after a red-hot start with Miami -- he'd gone 8-for-38 (.211) in his previous nine contests. Since joining the Marlins at the trade deadline, the 31-year-old third baseman is batting .271 with a .867 OPS and nine homers across 129 plate appearances.
