A source told Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror that Josh Bell has been given a promotion to AAA Indianapolis.
Bell was a second round selection of the Pirates in the 2011 MLB Draft. The former outfielder turned first baseman entered this season as the Pirates #2 prospect and 34th best prospect overall according to MLB.com. Bell was very productive this year for AA Altoona, hitting .307, which was good for seventh best in the Eastern League while posting an .803 OPS in 95 games played.
