Heath Bell poked out his head and surveyed the two dozen reporters and cameramen awaiting Jose Reyes when he returned to Citi Field for the first time as a Marlin last month. He's not anticipating a similar welcoming committee at Petco Park on Friday.

"In San Diego, we only had about three [reporters]," Bell said. "If something big happened, we had about six guys. … It's going to be exciting because I get to see my kids. I get to hang out in a place I played for five years. I also feel like I'm with a great team here. I can honestly tell you I don't want to be anywhere else but Miami."

Bell from 2009-11 totaled 132 saves for the Padres.
