Featured prominently in Jock Thompson's  KEEPERS: 2016 Dynasty Reload—1B, currently posted for free at BBHQ:

A crowded PIT OF was behind Josh Bell's
(1B, PIT) move to first base, where he played full-time in 2015 between
AA and AAA. The large-bodied Bell still hasn't delivered on the power
that most scouts think he'll eventually generate, with just nine HR this
past season. But Bell also posted a 1.00 Eye, 12% bb% and an 86% ct% in
489 AB—plate skills that PIT could sorely use at 1B. Sporting a
career .305 BA and .371 OBP, the 23-year-old is more likely than not to
make his MLB debut sometime in 2016. As a switch-hitter with reportedly
great makeup, Bell has a good shot at reaching our $10 mark sometime
over the next three years on his hit tool and opportunity alone. And if
the power comes, he could be special.

Expected to be a top power hitter, he suffered a massive power outage after being promoted to Double-A last summer, posting a slugging percentage lower than his OBP. He made excellent contact and has shown okay strike zone judgement, but scouts note that he has a long swing and isn't all that athletic. Can he play outfield? Will the power come back? He's likely to see some time at first base in Double-A early this season. We'll have to see about the power as it develops, or doesn't. PIRATES
