Marshall Gives Leary His Run, and It's Enough

July 19, 1988|SAM McMANIS | Times Staff Writer

Pedro Guerrero (sore neck) completed his 44th day on the disabled list Monday and reported progress, according to Dodger trainers. But on Sunday, Guerrero reportedly felt additional soreness in his neck. Fred Claire, the Dodgers' executive vice president, said Guerrero himself will determine when he is fit enough to return. But Claire, who spoke with Guerrero before Monday night's game, said he might discuss the possibility of sending Guerrero--and Alfredo Griffin (broken hand)--on a 20-day rehabilitation assignment to the club's triple-A team in Albuquerque. "Because he is not able to play under game conditions, a lot of it still comes from how Pete feels about himself," Claire said. "At the point where Pete feels ready, we'll have to decide whether he should go to Albuquerque to rehabilitate or put him back into the lineup. I've talked to Alfredo about the same thing (the rehabilitation assignment). It's a possibility." Assistant trainer Charlie Strasser on Guerrero: "Things are progressing. He's getting closer." . . . The Dodgers recalled right-hander William Brennan to pitch tonight, demoting outfielder Jose Gonzalez. Brennan was 12-5 with a 3.55 earned-run average at Albuquerque. He pitched five shutout innings, throwing 52 pitches, in his last start on Saturday, a 13-1 win over Edmonton. Brennan arrived five hours late Monday because of a canceled flight in Calgary.

Claire said he considered bringing up 20-year-old Ramon Martinez, the organization's most prized prospect. But Claire said he wants to give Martinez a few more triple-A starts. "I think we'll see Ramon Martinez sometime this year," Claire said. "We'll see him a lot next year. That's our plan for him." . . . Pitcher Don Sutton will not come off the disabled list Wednesday, when he is first eligible, according to trainers. Sutton threw off the mound Monday for 15 minutes and reported no stiffness or soreness in his right elbow. Sutton said he will throw again Wednesday and, if he comes out of that session without pain, throw a simulated game Friday in Pittsburgh.
