According to Pirates Head Athletic Trainer Todd Tomczyk, Josh Bell is “slightly ahead of schedule” in his rehab. 

Bell is recovering from minor knee surgery, which he underwent on February 1st. The switch-hitting first baseman was cleared for baseball activities this week, including hitting and fielding. Bell currently isn’t running at full speed, so he won’t be able to play in any games just yet. The Pirates are evaluating if Bell can be ready by Opening Day. Barring any major setback, I’d be surprised if he isn’t ready by then, especially since the season doesn’t start in more than a month.
