Heath Bell Injures Calf

San Diego Padres Closer Heath Bell will be sidelined till the weekend with a strained calf. Pitchers and Catchers reported to camp just on Sunday and Bell pulled up lame before even taking the field for Monday’s first workout session.

Bell finished second in the NL last season with 47 saves and he is hoping to get his contract extended during the spring. It is still very early in spring training and Bell will have plenty of time to recover for the season.

I hope he didn’t get hurt playing his Nintendo Wii, it would make for a funny story though… and with Heath Bell, anything is possible.
