ANAHEIM, CA - The Angels Tuesday announced the club has agreed to terms on minor league contracts with top draft selections SS Taylor Lindsey (37th overall) and CF Ryan Bolden (40th overall).  No terms of the agreements were released. This announcement was made by Angels' Director of Scouting Eddie Bane.

At the same time, Bane also announced the Angels have agreed to terms with 30 additional players selected in the recent 2010 draft, including RHP Daniel Tillman, the second round pick from Florida Southern College and SS Wendell Soto, the third round pick from Riverview High School (FL). 

"We are very pleased with this year's draft," said Bane who has spent the past seven seasons as the Angels' Director of Scouting.  "The signings are moving along very well and we are encouraged to see many of our draft picks already playing."
