I'm curious to see how Davey puts the lineup together with two lefty power hitters to work with. Soto in the 2 hole? Bell in cleanup?

No sense speculating until we have a CO we know who’s playing third.

well, do you pencil in Castro at this point, either at 3d or 2d?  If you do, you could see something  like

1.  Turner - SS
2, Soto - RF
3. Castro - 3B / 2B
4. Bell - 1B
5. Gomes? - C
6. Stevenson - LF
7. Keiboom / Garcia - 3B /2B
8. Robles - CF
9. Pitcher

I suspect you see one more hitter picked up, maybe Suarez in a trade, maybe a free agent, who slots in at #5, dropping Gomes back to 6th or 7th.  Davey like his lefty / righty back and forth in the line up.

Still need another move.  But Bell is a nice, necessary piece.  Would love to get a big bag in corner outfield and let Stephenson compete for centerfield.

Oh, wait...he's a switch hitter! I overlooked that.

I hope he’s better than Espinoza at that.

I was thinking possibly DJLM or maybe Realmuto.

Super excited for this move.  I was looking forward to seeing what Crowe could do, but this only adds to our offense.
I am sure someone has posted this before, but in the last full season of baseball, Bell was legit:
                                    AB   R   H   RBI   BB   HR   SO    AVG     OPS
2019 Regular Season      527   94   146   116   74   37   118   .277   .367

Which is fine until you look at his numbers after May 2019.

I am guessing he will be better here.  For one thing, opponents won't be able to pitch around him.
