Trevor Bell Slated for Angels Debut Wednesday

Pitcher Trevor Bell, the Angels' first pick in the 2005 draft (37th pick overall) was pulled from his start in Salt Lake on Saturday night in preparation for his major league debut Wednesday afternoon in Anaheim against the Tampa Bay Rays. Salt Lake's Deseret News confirmed that the reason the Bees pulled Bell from his start was in preparation for his major league call-up and not due to any sort of injury concern. Bell had allowed 2 hits but no runs in 2 IP Saturday in Salt Lake.

Bell will be replacing Joe Saunders in the rotation for this one start and, in the tradition of Mike Scioscia, it will be his spot to keep if the pitching ability is there.

Bell stands 6' 2", weighs 190 and throws from the Right. He is 22 and will turn 23 on October 12 ... as I pointed out when the Angels drafted him, he was born on the Sunday in 1986 known more commonly to Angels fans as "The Donnie Moore Game" ... could this dude be the postseason Red-Sox cursebreaker we have been looking for?

Bell will be the third pitcher from the 2005 draft to make his debut for the Angels this season: Rotation-mate Sean O'Sullivan (103rd pick in the 2005 draft) will be starting against Tampa on Monday and Robert Mosebach (283rd pick) has been up and down in the Angels pen this season.
