Bell was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 4th round of the 2005 Major League Baseball draft out of Santaluces High School in Florida. After spending a year with the Gulf Coast Dodgers, he spent 2006 with the Ogden Raptors, where he batted .308 and was selected to the Pioneer League Post-Season All-Star team after he was third in the league in home runs, fourth in extra-base hits and fifth in RBIs. He split 2007 between the Great Lakes Loons and Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino.

Bell began 2008 with Inland Empire and played in 51 games for them before missing the rest of the season after undergoing preventative knee surgery in June. In 2009, he was promoted to the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts where he was selected to the mid-season Southern League All-Star team. In the All-Star game, Bell was 2 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBIs and was voted the All-Star Game Most Valuable Player.

Baltimore Orioles

On July 30, 2009, he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles (along with Chattanooga teammate Steve Johnson) in exchange for relief pitcher George Sherrill.

On July 1, 2010, he was called up to replace Luke Scott, who hurt his left hamstring rounding the bases after a home run. Upon the trade of Miguel Tejada to the San Diego Padres on July 29, 2010, Bell took over the starting third basemen duties for the remainder of the 2010 season. In the spring of 2011, Bell was optioned to the Orioles Triple-A team in Norfolk.

On April 17, 2012. the Orioles designated Bell for assignment in a move that would make room for catcher Luis Exposito on the 40-man roster.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Upon his acquisition, Bell was assigned to Triple A Reno and was recalled to the Diamondbacks on May 21 when Cody Ransom was designated for assignment by the team. The teams later agreed on Mike Belfiore as the PTBNL.

After hitting just .173 in 52 at-bats with a .501 OPS, Bell was outrighted off the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster at the conclusion of the season. He refused the assignment, however, and elected free agency.

Chicago White Sox

On January 10, 2013, Bell signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox and was optioned to the Sox' AAA affiliate in Charlotte. On May 7 the White Sox released him. Through 55 at-bats, Bell hit .273/.310/.345.

New York Yankees

On May 17, Bell signed with the New York Yankees and was assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In 37 games, he hit .205 with 5HR and 17 RBI before being released on July 10.

LG Twins

He re-signed with the Dodgers on a minor league contract on December 16, 2013 but shortly afterwards chose to break that contract to sign with the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization.

He was released from the team on July 2, 2014.

San Diego Padres

Bell signed a minor league deal with the Padres in February 2015. The Padres released him on May 25, having not played a game in the minors for the club.
