RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for David Bell.

2007

After a second poor season in Philadelphia, Bell was traded to Milwaukee in July and his days as a starter at third base are probably over. He is considering undergoing back surgery and missing the 2007 season.

2006

Plain and simple, Bell had a poor season. He hit .400 against lefthanders in 135 AB but just .199 against righties in 422 chances. That ugly differential was the widest of any regular in the major leagues. Bell is a pull hitter whose bad back has limited his mobility to the point where he can no longer handle quality pitches on the outside part of the plate. He can still make contact (just 69 K) and is a "gamer" who plays hurt, but his power looks to be almost gone.

2005

Bell had a nice comeback season after missing most of his first year in Philadelphia with a bad back. The odds are against him repeating this success, as he will be 32 in 2005, is still battling the back problem, and was never a star with the bat. No farmhand is pushing for his job, although Chase Utley could shift to third.

2004

Bell suffered through his worst season in the major leagues, hampered by a back injury that limited him to 297 at-bats, while hitting .195. He can only go up with his offensive numbers, but how much will manager Larry Bowa and the Phils wait for him to return to his production levels while with the Giants and the Mariners, especially with Chase Utley being kept out of the lineup?

2003

Bell was the first ‘name' free agent to sign this off-season. He's nothing special with the stick (.256 career) but hitting seventh in this lineup should get him 70-80 RBI again. The Phillies probably overpaid for him and there's no reason you should.
