Philadelphia Phillie outfielder Von Hayes broke his right wrist Friday night when hit by a pitch from the Cincinnati Reds' Tom Browning and is out for the rest of the season. Hayes, who in the last week has been rumored going to Cincinnati for infielder Mariano Duncan, was batting in the sixth inning when hit by Browning. Hayes went to first base after he was hit, but was removed and sent to a hospital when the Phillies took the field for the seventh.
San Diego second baseman Marty Barrett cleared waivers after his 20-day rehabilitation period ended and has opted for free agency rather than accepting an assignment to the Padres' triple-A team at Las Vegas. And, like other disgruntled former Padres, he took a shot at Manager Greg Riddoch. "He tries to come off real friendly and have a family type atmosphere, but I'm working my butt off down here in rehab and I never got one call from him," Barrett said from Las Vegas.
