Bell joins Cubs coaching staff
The Reds will be looking for a new manager at Triple-A Louisville. On Tuesday, the Cubs named David Bell as the third base coach on their big league staff under Dale Sveum.
Bell, 40, spent four seasons in the Reds organization. His first three were as manager at Double-A Carolina and last season at Louisville, which had a 51-93 record in 2012.
The move doesn’t seem too stunning as it gives Bell a shot at a big league coaching job right now. Since the Reds retained their entire coaching staff for 2013, and manager Dusty Baker for two more seasons, there were no openings for Bell to get a promotion.
