  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, athletic frame with long arms and legs. Frame has a good amount of projection, but he is already quite sturdy.

Mechanics: High three-quarters arm slot. Makes use of his height. Medium-to-high leg kick. Puts some effort on his arm. Lands closed and balanced.

Fastball: 91-94 mph, touching 97 mph. Good extension. Can work on working in and out of the zone more. Good control.

Curveball: Flashes above-average. Best secondary pitch. Projects average but is still raw.

Slider: Developing a slider.

Changeup: Average potential.
  Career Notes: Son of former MLB All-Star Jay Bell. Older brother Brantley is a third baseman in the Reds organization. Does not have a significant track record as a power arm. Began JuCo career as a two-way player, but blew out his arm early in his sophomore season, which resulted in Tommy John surgery. Came back from injury with increased velocity and chose to focus exclusively on pitching. Was committed to Auburn had he not signed with Boston. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Does not have many miles on his arm and is still raw for his age, but has two pitches you can dream on with his fastball and breaking ball. Moldable. Should post high strikeout numbers in the minors. Likely profiles as a reliever, the role he pitched in throughout his JuCo experience, but is raw enough to have a starter ceiling. Advancement of changeup and command around the edges of the zone will be keys to development.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
