Elvin Nina appears to be healthy. The 24-year-old right-hander, who had an extended spring training because of a strained muscle in his right arm, made his first start for double-A Erie last week. He took a no-hitter into the eighth inning before giving up a single. He allowed three more hits before being relieved. He went seven innings, allowing two runs. Nina was acquired last July in the deal that sent second baseman Randy Velarde and pitcher Omar Olivares to the Oakland Athletics.

The Angels' double-A farm club in Erie, Pa. started the season with a standout starting pitching rotation that included Ramon Ortiz, Brian Cooper and Seth Etherton. Ortiz, however, was called up to triple-A Edmonton July 4 and has since been called up by the Angels. Cooper followed Ortiz to Edmonton on Aug. 10, and Etherton moved up on Aug. 20.

Life is so rough for the Angels these days that Manager Mike Scioscia benched infielder Scott Spiezio on Tuesday, then had to rush him into the game in the second inning. Spiezio replaced third baseman Troy Glaus, who left because of tightness in his left hamstring. Glaus said the hamstring had bothered him over the weekend, and he has received treatment to combat the soreness but said he felt something "funny" while running out a ground ball in the first inning. "It felt tight," he said.

It was one of those baseball trades that always raises a few eyebrows. The Angels, out of playoff contention in the American League West, traded their starting second baseman, Randy Velarde, and a starting pitcher, Omar Olivares, to the Oakland Athletics for three minor league prospects. The Angels got outfielders Jeff DaVanon and Nathan Haynes along with pitcher Elvin Nina. At the time, Velarde was batting .306 and Olivares was 8-9 with a 4.05 earned-run average.

Baseball's Hall of Fame honors players, managers, umpires, executives, even writers and broadcasters. Nowhere does it honor scouts, who discover those players. "The scouts don't have a presence in the Hall of Fame," said Roberta Mazur, president of the Scout of the Year Foundation. "There's not one display or one article that represents scouting. The scouts have always felt left out."

Midway through the exhibition season, the Angels seem no closer to answering the most pressing questions they had going into spring training. Their regulars--Mo Vaughn, Tim Salmon, Jim Edmonds, Garret Anderson, Darin Erstad, Troy Glaus, Gary DiSarcina--are healthy and hitting well, their bullpen is shaping up nicely, and Bengie Molina is emerging as a capable catcher. But there are growing concerns about the rotation and second base position.

The Angels signed Troy Glaus to a four-year, $22-million contract Tuesday, continuing a strategy of securing young stars to long-term deals and eliminating the possibility of any contentious arbitration hearings between the team and its slugging third baseman.

With all of two innings of major league experience, Francisco Rodriguez is under consideration for the Angels' playoff roster. Rodriguez would offer the Angels a dimension none of their current set-up men can provide. He can throw a 95-mph fastball, so the Angels could consider using him when a strikeout is in order. He pitched one inning Thursday, striking out the side, after striking out two in his major league debut Wednesday.

A giant bee swarm congregated around home plate in the middle of the fifth inning Saturday, causing a five-minute delay in an exhibition game between the Angels and San Diego Padres at the Peoria Sports Complex. "Where were they in the third inning?" Angel pitcher Tim Belcher cracked. The veteran right-hander could have used such a delay--anything to break up a 30-pitch inning in which he was stung for six runs on six hits, including three-run homers by Damian Jackson and Bubba Trammell.
