The MLB trade deadline has come and gone and each team has made its last wave of moves before the final stretch of the season over these next two months.

The Miami Marlins made two last minute trades, one of which they obtained MLBbro Josh Bell.


The Marlins obtained Bell due to his switch-hitting prowess. While he is not putting up huge numbers this season, he is an improvement over Garrett Cooper, their previous first basemen whom they sent to the San Diego Padres.

The MLBbro was signed in free agency to help propel the Celeveland Guardians past the ALDS in which they were eliminated last year. But with the Guardians struggling in a very weak American League Central Division, the team decided to go in another direction.


The Marlins however are currently tied for a third National League wild card spot. With the red hot Atlanta Braves well ahead of them in the division, the MArlins are targeting a wild card spot to reach the playoffs.

 Marlins’ fans did not have to wait long to reap the benefits of their new MLBbro acquisition. In his debut, Bell had his fingerprints all over the game. Facing the Philadelphia Phillies, the MLBbro started at first base and immediately impacted the game.

Bell went 4-5 with a home run, a walk, and 2 RBI. This would jumpstart the Marlins’ comeback, as right after Bell, MLBbro Jazz Chisholm Jr. would go back-to-back with a home run of his own. Bell’s second game wasn’t nearly as impressive, going 0-3 with a walk.  


The Marlins still have to be thrilled about the debut and outlook for their recently acquired MLBbro. With the addition of Bell to the squad the team should be able to maintain their position as a wild card holder, and possibly aim higher.

Bell has a player-option after the season. He will surely spend the rest of the season getting familiar with the organization and evaluate how he can be an asset to Miami in the present and future.
