Angels, Dodgers in battle for Padres closer Heath Bell
The Florida Marlins are among the other teams to have pursued Bell, but a source familiar with the talks said the Padres have narrowed the field to the Angels and Dodgers.
Both the Angels and Dodgers have made relief help a priority in trade talks. Bell would set up for Brian Fuentes with the Angels and could join George Sherrill and Jonathan Broxton in a late-inning mix with the Dodgers.
