Bell, Manuel named Triple-A All-Stars


Outfielder Bubba Bell and right-handed pitcher Robert Manuel have been named Triple-A All-Stars and will represent the International League on July 14.

Bell, 27, has hit .308 with 4 homers and 5 stolen bases, good for an OPS of .803 in his sixth season with the Red Sox organization. Since being drafted in the 39th round, he has batted .293 with 57 home runs, including 26 in 2007 with Portland. Over his last 15 games, he's hitting .467 with 4 doubles and 3 home runs.

The 26-year-old Manuel has bounced around minors in his career, spending time in the New York Mets, Cincinatti, and Seattle organizations. He saw his first major league action last year, appearing in three games for Cincinatti and giving up no earned runs. The Red Sox claimed him off waivers from Seattle this off-season and he has put up an ERA of 1.54 with 33 strikeouts over 41.0 innings in Pawtucket. He has shared closer duties this season for the PawSox, picking up 8 saves thus far. Manuel spent time in the Boston bullpen earlier this season, but has yet to make an appearance.
