News: Bell has signed a minor league deal including a spring training invite with the Nationals, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.
Impact: It would be a shock if Bell made the major league team out of spring training given Washington's wealth of right-handed relievers. The 37-year-old hasn't registered an ERA below 4.00 since 2011, and the well of bad teams willing to give him save opportunities has completely dried up. He will likely start at Triple-A Syracuse and could be called up in the event of an injury, but it seems unlikely that he'll get anywhere near a save opportunity as long as Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard are healthy.
