MLB Rumors: Marlins Plan to Trade Josh Bell; Realize They 'Have to Eat' $16M Contract

The Miami Marlins are reportedly planning to trade first baseman Josh Bell, but it will cost them most of the $16 million remaining on his contract, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

"The Marlins plan to trade first baseman Josh Bell but realize they will have to eat most of his remaining $16 million contract," Nightengale wrote.

Bell, who is in his ninth season in the majors, has recorded a .236 batting average, collecting 62 hits, seven home runners, 31 RBI and 27 runs. If a deal gets done, it would send him to his fifth team in the last two seasons.
