Angels Sign Two First-Round Picks

The Angels have signed first-round picks Cameron Bedrosian and Chevez Clarke, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. Bedrosian and Clarke were two of the Angels' three first-rounders in this year's draft, selected 29th and 30th overall respectively. Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that Bedrosian will receive a bonus of $1.116MM, while Clarke signed for $1.089MM.

The son of former Cy Young winner Steve Bedrosian, Cam was selected with the first-round pick the Angels earned when John Lackey signed with the Red Sox. Baseball America ranked Bedrosian 56th overall in their list of draft prospects, noting that his fastball hits the mid-90s and that he has a chance to become a major league starter.

Clarke is a switch-hitting high school outfielder who projects as a leadoff type, with's scouting report likening the 18-year-old to Denard Span.

Kaleb Cowart, who the Angels selected with the 18th overall pick they received for losing Chone Figgins, is now the lone first-rounder who has yet to reach an agreement with the team. For the full list of which 2010 first-round picks have signed, click here.
