BASEBALL DAILY REPORT : Lachemann Wants Velarde to Lead Way

February 22, 1996|MIKE DiGIOVANNA

Angel Manager Marcel Lachemann has a leadoff hitter in mind.

"It will probably be Randy Velarde," Lachemann said Wednesday in Tempe, Ariz.

Velarde played just about every position but pitcher and catcher during his eight-year New York Yankee career and has appeared in numerous batting-order slots, but rarely at the top.

Reliever Mike James, who went 3-0 with a 3.88 earned-run average last season, signed a one-year contract for $150,000.
