RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bell entered the 2011 draft as a player with immense power who seemed bent on foregoing the draft to enter college.

Bell immediately becomes the best power prospect in the Pirates system. He's thought to be average at best defensively, but has a chance to move up quickly an offensively-challenged organizational ladder. His second-round, $5 million contract would've never happened under the new CBA, but Bell gives the small market Bucs a chance to cash in on a player who was universally ranked as a first-round talent.
