All-Star pitcher Ben Sheets signed a $38.5-million, four-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, the richest deal in club history. Sheets had signed a one-year, $6-million contract in February to avoid salary arbitration but left open the option of a longer pact.

Chicago Cub pitcher Mark Prior has been sidelined indefinitely because of inflammation in his right elbow and an inflamed ulnar nerve, the team said Tuesday. Prior's injuries leave the Cubs without two of their starting pitchers. Kerry Wood has been unable to pitch because of bursitis in his right shoulder. Officials said Prior's injury was unrelated to the elbow tendinitis that led to the right-hander sitting out spring training and the first two months of the 2004 season.

The Tigers ended their record-setting 0-9 start, getting a three-run homer from Shane Halter and six strong innings by Nate Cornejo to beat the Chicago White Sox, 4-3, Saturday. "We're still 1-9, so we can't celebrate like we had just won the World Series," Halter said.

Dave Gallagher, the newest Angel, is a member of the New Jersey Inventors' Hall of Fame and once bowled a 300 game. Or so he told beat writers during his first stint with the Angels in 1991. Turned out that in addition to being a solid outfielder and a quality hitter, he has been known to tell a tall tale or two. "He's an excellent player," Manager Marcel Lachemann said. "And he has a great personality on top of it. I think he fits in great."

Chicago Cub second baseman Ryne Sandberg is being admired for retiring this week and forfeiting a potential $16 million, but Angel batting coach Rod Carew has difficulty respecting him. "He's a guy who had eight good years in the big leagues," Carew said. "He has one bad year, and he walks out on his teammates. If I was on the team, I would have felt like he let me down as one of his teammates. "People say he doesn't care about money. How about the guys around him? What about them?

Lou Whitaker struck a blow for every little guy who ever aspired to play ball when he hit eight home runs in May. Whitaker now has 13 for the season, one more than he hit in his first four years in the major leagues.

"He's a strong little guy and he's got a great body," Detroit interim manager Dick Tracewski said. "And he's getting bigger. When he first got here, Lou weighed 150 pounds soaking wet. Now he's up to about 175."
