Angels ship Trevor Bell back to minors

August 16, 2011 | 10:59 pm

Bell_640 Angels pitcher Trevor Bell is on his way back to Salt Lake just a day after he arrived in Anaheim.

Bell was called up from the minors before Tuesday's game with the Texas Rangers, then came out of the bullpen in the third inning to pitch 4 1/3 innings of relief, allowing two runs and six hits in a 7-3 loss to the Rangers. That likely left him unavailable to pitch again before the weekend, so the Angels, whose bullpen has been overworked lately, optioned the right-hander back to triple A.

The Angels say they will make another roster move Wednesday to fill the spot vacated by Bell, who has pitched in 16 games for the Angels, going 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in 29 1/3 innings during two stints in the majors.
