Bell, Zambrano bonding in bullpen duty
DENVER -- Heath Bell began the year as the Marlins closer, and Carlos Zambrano was then in their rotation. Now both are in the bullpen, Zambrano pitching long relief and Bell working the eighth inning and setting up for closer Steve Cishek.

Bell and Zambrano are new to the Marlins this year. Bell said they developed a friendship in spring training. And because both are high-profile veterans who have faltered and fallen, they are kindred spirits.

"He's like been my mentor this year, more than he probably even knows," Bell said.
