According to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA, the Dodgers are saying that they still have Josh Bell under contract.
It was reported over the weekend that Bell had agreed to a deal with the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization, but it's either not official yet or the Dodgers don't plan on letting him go so easily. The 27-year-old agreed to a minor league deal with Los Angeles last month.

The LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization have signed INF Josh Bell, a source tells Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net.
Bell was once one of the top prospects in baseball but was never able to have sustained success at the MLB level. The 27-year-old split 2013 between the Yankees and White Sox organizations, batting .226/.324/.356 in 52 games. He signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers in December, but it seems he's elected to try his hand overseas instead.
