Brantley Bell and Tyler Nevin Understand Expectations Can be High

Brantley Bell and Tyler Nevin are both sons of former successful major leaguers.  They were selected in the 2015 MLB Draft and have started their pro careers, Nevin in the Rockies organization and Bell in the Reds system.

Both of the young players realize there are high expectations of them from having bloodlines that include former major leaguers.

Bell is the son of Jay Bell, an 18-year infielder in the big leagues, who made the All-Star team three years and played for the World Series champion Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001.

Nevin is the son of Phil Nevin, the first overall draft pick of the Houston Astros in 1992.  Phil went on to play for 12 seasons, compiling over 200 career home runs and putting up an All-Star season in 2001 with 46 home runs and 126 RBI for the San Diego Padres.
