Justin Speier Released as Angels Welcome Trevor Bell

As reported earlier tonight, before Tuesday's game, the Angels released Justin Speier to make room on the 40 and 25 Man rosters for Trevor Bell who will start Wednesday afternoon's game in Anaheim.

By releasing (Instead of Designating For Assignment) Justin Speier, the Angels made it easier for the veteran relief pitcher to sign on with another team more quickly.

The Angels owe him almost $7 million for the rest of this season and next, minus the major league minimum salary he would be paid by any team that signs him as a free agent, the status he now holds.
