When Dave Roberts returns from the disabled list, he might have to keep an eye on more than his strained right hamstring. Jason Grabowski has made a strong case for additional playing time by providing a boost in the left fielder's absence, batting .326 in May and hitting three of his four homers in the last five games. The rookie's hitting streak ended at eight games Sunday when he hit into a double play as a pinch-hitter in the Dodgers' 5-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Skeptics who wrote letters to the editor weren't the only ones questioning whether outfielders Jayson Werth and Jason Grabowski could be considered key additions when they arrived in the Dodger clubhouse on the eve of the season. Grabowski had all of 16 major league at-bats and Werth had batted .208 with 22 strikeouts in 48 at-bats last season with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jason Grabowski, noting Jim Tracy's penchant for filling out his lineup card based on matchups, acknowledged that there's not a lot of history for his manager to rely on when Tracy tries to find a spot for an outfielder with 45 major league at-bats. "I don't have a lot of guys I match up against," Grabowski said Tuesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium before facing the Chicago Cubs' Kerry Wood for the first time in his career. "I'll just try to make the most of the opportunities."

Concerned about bench production, General Manager Paul DePodesta completed his second trade in as many days Tuesday, acquiring outfielder Jayson Werth from the Toronto Blue Jays for pitcher Jason Frasor. DePodesta turned to a friend again in an attempt to improve the team, working with Toronto General Manager J.P.

Intentionally throwing at a batter in retaliation is the same mind-set children display in a sandbox. How about a pitcher making his point by executing a really good pitch? That would be the more mature approach. But then, baseball is a game played by boys of any age, isn't it? CAROL MARSHALL Anaheim So the Angels carry Esteban Yan for a year and a half, and they won't try Jeff Weaver in the bullpen? It's certainly going to be an interesting Thanksgiving at the Weaver household.

Jason Grabowski, the first major league player Paul DePodesta acquired when he became general manager before the 2004 season, was outrighted to triple-A Las Vegas after Sunday's game. Pitcher Wilson Alvarez, on the disabled list since May 31 with shoulder pain, was activated, giving the Dodgers a left-hander in the bullpen for the first time since Kelly Wunsch injured his ankle July 8.

Paul DePodesta doesn't repeat himself often because, well, he doesn't say that much. But the Dodger general manager reiterated Saturday what he said two weeks ago: Suggestions that Manager Jim Tracy is in danger of getting fired have no merit. "That is pure speculation with no grounds to it whatsoever," he said. "Tracy has done an excellent job, given the injuries he has faced. "Not just Tracy, but the whole staff. I think they've done a very good job. There's been a lot of adversity.

The baseballs sailed into the right-field stands, three in a row, five in the span of several minutes. And even as the balls off the bat of Barry Bonds rattled around the empty seats in his early afternoon batting-practice session Tuesday, the speculation rattled around Dodger Stadium. Would Bonds, who has sat out the season after undergoing three operations on his right knee, be activated? Not Tuesday. Presumably not today. But probably in the immediate days ahead.

Oscar Robles and Mike Edwards could appreciate the creativity. Struggling outfielder Jason Grabowski will go with the flow. Antonio Perez says he is ready to play third base. Instead of demoting Robles or Edwards to triple A to make room for Perez on the roster Wednesday, the Dodgers put Grabowski on the disabled list because of shoulder pain he has experienced since early in spring training.
