Bubba Bell

I'm curious as to why there isn't more buzz around Bell.  He's playing CF in AA for the Red Sox organization.  Granted, he's already 25, but he seems to have a pretty fair bat, having produced (until this year) very strong contact rates for a player with above average power.  This season, he's still producing with his numbers at 286/361/479 with 13HR, 49RBI, and 3SB.  The rest of his stats can be found here : http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?n=Bubba%20Bell&pos=LF&sid=milb&t=p_pbp&pid=488694

I'll be the first to admit that he's got a relatively poor age relative to league, but I don't see any reason to believe that Bell won't continue to produce as he moves up the ladder.  Assuming he can stick in CF, Bell should be a solid 4th OF at minimum, with a solid chance of developing into a solid regular.  I'm curious if any of the posters here have any sort of insight or scouting impressions regarding Bell, and why he doesn't get more love?
