Angels Sign Trevor Bell

The Angels have signed first-round pick Trevor Bell. Bell is the descendant of a real Bozo. Terms are unknown at this point.

Update: More from Mark Thoma at MLB.com.

Bane believes Bell has a Major League arm, and he made a point Saturday of repeatedly mentioning his "aggressiveness," "poise" and "makeup." The Angels' head scout even went so far as to compare Bell's delivery to that of Eric Gagne, whom Bane scouted and signed while in the Dodgers organization.

If Bell lives up to that comparison, everyone would be quite pleased, but he models his game after a couple other Cy Young Award winners -- Roger Clemens (for his "intensity") and Barry Zito (for his "smarts").

Rex brought up the Bozo thing and asked him how his grandfather was doing these days.

The answer? About as well as a dead guy could be doing.
