PHOENIX — It's only May, but the Cincinnati Reds already are assured of having at least two All-Stars in uniform for the July 16 game in Globe Life Field in Texas.

Reds manager David Bell has accepted an invitation to join Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo's All-Star coaching staff for the game, the Diamondbacks announced during Tuesday night's game between the teams.

Bell, who played 12 big-league seasons, will be making his first big-league All-Star appearance in any role.
