There, you can see the original tweet has been deleted, but look at the initial reply, "Can the anonymous scout pitch to him?" and Cruz's final retort.
Yeah. It's not too hard to put the pieces together in this mystery, folks.
That said, MLB has a blanket policy on this kind of thing, and there is, as of Saturday, no confirmation that Cruz's tweet is 100 percent accurate. Maybe he was fed poor information, or maybe he somehow didn't mean Bell. Until we receive official confirmation, we won't express it as such. So for now, file this under the "extremely likely" category.
Should this play out, though, Bell would join Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as one of two confirmed entrants for the showcase in Cleveland.
This season, Bell is slashing .312/.379/.642 while putting up 20 home runs and an MLB-leading 66 RBIs. He also has 27 doubles the most in the majors, although doubles won't count on July 8.
