Diamondbacks | Heath Bell acquired

The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired RP Heath Bell and cash considerations from the Miami Marlins for INF Yordy Cabrera.

Fantasy Tip: The bells didn't exactly toll for Bell in Miami. He lost his handle on ninth-inning duties early in the year and never really rebounded, posting a 5.09 ERA and only 19 saves. He didn't see eye to eye with skipper Ozzie Guillen, either.

A move back to the West coast may be what he needs to resurface. However, the fact that he relied less on his fastball and wasn't able to generate as many swings and misses from it is concerning, especially moving to a more hitter-friendly environment.

He has some work to do to convince the D-backs coaching staff that he's still the same pitcher he was in San Diego. Earning save opps won't be entirely up to him, either; incumbent fireman J.J. Putz will have to falter or succumb to injury. Bell will be a cheap yet risky source of holds - and possibly saves - in drafts next year.
