Baseball: A front-page article on Oct. 1, 2006, incorrectly reported that in a search warrant affidavit filed in May 2006 in federal court in Phoenix, an investigator alleged that pitcher Jason Grimsley named former teammates Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons as players linked to performance-enhancing drugs. In the affidavit, which was unsealed Thursday, Grimsley did not name those players. The article also said Grimsley alleged that Miguel Tejada had used steroids.

Right-hander Jason Grimsley, who gave up six hits and seven runs in two innings against the Giants Wednesday, has pitched himself out of a chance at the starting rotation and maybe even a spot as a long reliever. Grimsley has given up 15 hits and 13 runs in his last 5 1/3 innings. . . . Right fielder Tim Salmon is nursing a stiff neck that gives him more trouble at night than it does during workouts and games. "I can't believe how much this has messed with my sleep," he said.

Six days after federal agents raided his home as part of a drug investigation, former Arizona pitcher Jason Grimsley was suspended by Major League Baseball for 50 games, the penalty for a first-time offense under the joint drug agreement. Grimsley, who during the federal investigation admitted to using steroids, amphetamines and human growth hormone during his career, has effectively retired, his agent reiterated Monday.

The men in the straw hats and breezy shirts, the collars turned up against the Arizona sun, gazed at the numbers in the box and squinted. Eighty-six? They waited for another fastball and read the numbers in the box again. Eighty-seven? They leaned over a seat to the next guy. Same brand of radar gun, same number. Their eyes met, suspicious. The man on the pitcher's mound was Jason Grimsley, right? The same Jason Grimsley?

Jason Grimsley plans to fight the Arizona Diamondbacks' decision to withhold the remainder of his $825,000 salary. "The whole thing is already in process," agent Joe Bick said Saturday. "We haven't filed anything yet, but the players' association is aware of it." The reliever was given his release Wednesday, a day after federal agents searched Grimsley's home in an investigation into performance-enhancing drugs.

The Angels will probably shake up their starting rotation by inserting Jason Grimsley, who was at Anaheim Stadium on Wednesday. Grimsley was 2-0 with 1.20 earned-run average at Vancouver and will be added to the roster later this week, according to Manager Marcel Lachemann. Grimsley's promotion will probably mean a demotion for Shawn Boskie, at least to the bullpen. Boskie failed to protect a 9-1 lead in Monday's 11-10 loss to Seattle. He gave up six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Maybe the Angels can get one of those friends-fly-free deals on an airline ticket so Jason Grimsley can join Jim Abbott in Vancouver. The last time Grimsley started a game before Wednesday night, he failed to get an out, giving up seven earned runs in the first inning of a 12-9 loss to Detroit, the worst team in baseball. Demoted to the bullpen, he failed to provide much relief, yielding 13 runs in four appearances.

The Angels aren't quite sure what they got in pitcher Jason Grimsley, acquired from the Cleveland Indians in the Brian Anderson deal Thursday, and neither is Grimsley at times. "I may throw a pitch on the outside corner, I may throw one by your ear, you can never tell," said Grimsley, a 28-year-old right-hander who will compete for the fifth starting spot. "It's nothing personal. It just kind of happens." Grimsley is a quirky sort, from his erratic pitches to his unpredictable behavior.

Although Jason Grimsley told federal agents an equipment salesman distributed amphetamines within the Angels' clubhouse in 1996, three players on that team said Friday they had no recollection of such an individual. "The only ones that would probably recall that would be the ones who did it," outfielder Garret Anderson said. In an affidavit released this week, Grimsley acknowledged his use of steroids, amphetamines and human growth hormone.

Major League Baseball is strongly considering suspending former Arizona pitcher Jason Grimsley for admitting to federal authorities he used performance-enhancing drugs, which would set a precedent for future cases. Grimsley's agent said Thursday the pitcher will retire. MLB would pursue the penalty, however, if only to ensure Grimsley is penalized if he reconsiders retirement.

Pitching coach Joe Coleman wanted to give Jason Grimsley one more chance to prove he belonged in the Angel rotation, but Grimsley made the least of it Monday night. The right-hander lasted only 1 1/3 innings against the Red Sox, giving up three runs on five hits, walking two and striking out two. In his last seven appearances--three as a starter--Grimsley has given up 26 earned runs on 24 hits in 11 1/3 innings for a 20.65 earned-run average. He walked 18 and struck out six in that span.
