Frank McKenna, the premier of New Brunswick--roughly the political equivalent of a U.S. governor--was at Angel pitcher Jason Dickson's high school alma mater a few weeks ago to help dedicate a new multimedia lab. But McKenna had a lot more than the Internet and CD-ROM and baud rates on his mind. He wanted to know about release points and change-ups and the American League rookie-of-the-year race. "All he wanted to know about was Jason," said Greg Morris, principal at James M.

Angel pitcher Jason Dickson, who went on the disabled list Friday, believes that he developed tendinitis in his right shoulder compensating for his sore hip. He said he experienced extreme tightness in the shoulder Monday, the day after he started against the Texas Rangers, and the pain did not dissipate as the week passed. It is the same shoulder that was repaired surgically last March.

It's four days until the trading deadline, two first-place teams are on the field, and one dugout is buzzing. Everyone is talking about trading for a starting pitcher, improving for the pennant stretch, making a championship commitment. In the other dugout are the Angels. For three days this week at Edison Field, the New York Yankees should be considered more than just an Angel opponent. They should be a role model.

The Angels will keep a close eye on right-hander Jason Dickson, scheduled to start Saturday against the Kansas City Royals but apparently still not at full strength because of a hip injury. One official said it was "not a certainty" that Dickson would make his start, but that it was expected. Dickson came off the disabled list to make a start Sunday against the Texas Rangers and didn't get out of the second inning.

Jason Dickson started this mess last Friday when his shaky outing against Milwaukee began a five-day stretch in which Angel starting pitchers gave up 31 earned runs in 21 innings. Wednesday, the right-hander put an end to it. Dickson, sidelined in 1999 because of shoulder surgery, revitalized his fading rotation hopes with his best start of the spring, giving up one run and five hits and striking out three in 5 2/3 innings of a 6-3 Cactus League victory over the San Diego Padres.

Rookie Jason Dickson took another huge step toward securing a spot in the rotation, giving up two runs and five hits in five innings of the Angels' 12-5 exhibition loss to the Seattle Mariners on Friday at Tempe, Ariz. Facing a lineup of Seattle regulars, Dickson retired the side in order three times and struck out Edgar Martinez and Jay Buhner looking in the second. His only blemish was in the third, when he gave up four hits, including Ken Griffey Jr.'s run-scoring single on a 0-2 pitch.

Jason Dickson said it was "like riding a bike," and even though the tires seemed a little deflated Tuesday, the Angel pitcher still enjoyed the trip. Sure, he gave up three runs and five hits during a rocky inning in Tuesday's intrasquad game, but after everything Dickson went through in the past year, the right-hander was simply glad to be pitching in a competitive game again.

The battle for the fifth spot in the starting rotation--one of few real competitions in camp--began Friday in Tempe, Ariz., when Jason Dickson pitched two scoreless innings in the Angels' 12-2 exhibition season-opening loss to the Oakland Athletics. "I liked his outing," Manager Terry Collins said of Dickson, a 24-year-old right-hander. "When he gets behind on the count, he can throw a lot of different pitches and change speeds."

By most measures the Angel homestand was as sound as they could have hoped, given five wins and two series victories and the answered prayers for a suspect starting rotation. They do not depart for Chicago today totally satisfied, however, given the series sweep that died in their bullpen Wednesday night. Even that wouldn't be so terrible if that same corps of relievers hadn't left a stain in two of their previous three defeats.

Jason Dickson made Angel Manager Mike Scioscia's job a little easier Tuesday, giving up one run and six hits in six innings of a 3-2 Cactus League victory over the Oakland A's, a performance that virtually assures the right-hander a spot in the Angel rotation. Brian Cooper, who was in competition for the fifth spot, was optioned to triple-A Edmonton Tuesday, and the final rotation spot will go to either Kent Mercker or Scott Schoeneweis.

How can you be a good injured teammate? How do you walk the fine line between being an annoying reminder of couldas and shouldas and instead be a ray of sunshine? How do you, in only the most positive way, tell the guy taking your place that maybe he should have swung at that called third strike and not seem like a scolding mother, or worse, an obnoxious second-guesser? How do you project confidence and not depression? How do you, in other words, not be a pain in the butt?

Angel Manager Terry Collins said it was his busiest day as a manager, at least during the regular season. In: first baseman Chris Pritchett and outfielder Reggie Williams, both recalled from triple-A Vancouver, and relief pitcher Mike Fetters, acquired in a trade with the Oakland A's. Out: first baseman Dave Hollins and left fielder Darin Erstad, both went on the 15-day disabled list, and pitcher Jason Dickson, who is being sent to Vancouver to work out his problems.

Highly touted prospect Jason Dickson is expected to be called up from triple-A Vancouver to start Wednesday's game against the New York Yankees, as the Angels continue to shift their emphasis from 1996 to the future. Dickson, a 23-year-old right-hander who was a sixth-round pick in 1994, began the season at double-A Midland but has spent the past three months at Vancouver, where he is 7-1 with a 3.80 earned run average, 70 strikeouts and 40 walks in 130 1/3 innings.
