Eric Anthony stepped back into the batter's box at the Houston Astrodome Saturday facing a zero-and-two count and San Francisco's Rick Reuschel, the National League's starting pitcher in this year's All-Star Game. Anthony, 21, a left-handed hitting outfielder from San Diego, had just been called up from Houston's double-A team in Columbus, Ga. It was hoped he could add some muscle to an outfield that had produced just five home runs all season.

Did a line drive off the bat of the Philadelphia Phillies' Scott Rolen injure Hideo Nomo's right elbow? That question was asked on the July night when Nomo was struck and it is being asked again, since the 29-year-old Nomo is undergoing arthroscopic surgery today at the Centinela Hospital Medical Center to remove what are being described as "loose bodies" in the throwing elbow of the Dodger right-hander.

The Dodgers activated relief pitcher Darren Dreifort, who sat out 29 games because of an elbow injury, from the 15-day disabled list and purchased the contract of infielder Tripp Cromer from Albuquerque. The Dodgers also optioned infielder Chad Fonville to Albuquerque and designated outfielder Eric Anthony for assignment. Dreifort was 1-0 with a 3.07 earned-run average and one save in 13 appearances before going on the disabled list because of tendinitis in his right elbow.

The Cincinnati Reds suffered their fourth serious injury of spring training when outfielder Eric Anthony landed hard on his right shoulder while making a catch, possibly separating it. Anthony, who bats and throws left-handed, remained on the ground for several minutes after catching Chris Gomez's fly to right field in the sixth inning of a 5-3 loss to Detroit. He left the game and got an ice pack on the shoulder. He was expected to have X-rays and an examination later Saturday.

Eric Anthony still can't believe this is happening. Only three weeks ago, he was unemployed and desperately looking for work, terrified no one would sign him. Sunday, he was the Dodger starting left fielder. Anthony, a left-handed hitter, will platoon with Billy Ashley. Because there are few left-handed starting pitchers in the league, Anthony will receive the bulk of the playing time, relegating Ashley to the bench. "It's hard to believe, isn't it?"
