Giants awarded claim on Heath Bell

The Giants have been awarded a waiver claim on Padres closer Heath Bell, which gives the teams 48 hours in which to work out a trade.

Sources confirmed the claim, which was first reported by ESPN.com. There's no guarantee of a deal, and if one is not completed by 1 p.m. ET on Friday, the Padres would pull Bell back and he won't be traded for the rest of the season.

The Padres talked to multiple teams about Bell in the days before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, but they stuck to their high asking price and in the end decided against a trade. The Padres are likely to continue asking a high price for Bell, and that could make a trade unlikely.

The Giants have bullpen issues right now, with closer Brian Wilson and setup man Sergio Romo on the disabled list. The Padres scored two ninth-inning runs to beat the Giants on Tuesday night.

In late July, the Padres told teams that they would weigh any offers against the value of two high draft picks they would receive if Bell signed elsewhere this winter as a free agent. But the Padres would only get those draft picks if they offer Bell arbitration, and if he turns it down. Bell has since suggested that he might accept arbitration, and that could figure into the Padres' thinking.
