The Florida Marlins placed right-handed reliever Jeremy Hernandez on the 60-day disabled list Thursday because of a herniated disk in his neck. The former Cal State Northridge and Poly High player will undergo surgery Monday and is expected to be lost for the season. "He's been one of our main guys in our bullpen, but we've had a lot of injuries this season," Marlins' general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "Basically he has been our main saver out there at this point."

The Padres still are awaiting to make the official announcement, but with the recall Friday of reliever Jeremy Hernandez, it means that Jose Melendez will join the starting rotation Tuesday against the New York Mets.

He has pitched in a team-high 15 games, allowing only four earned runs in 25 2/3 innings for a 1.40 ERA. With the starting rotation having a 6-11 record and 4.

Alan Jaeger, a relief pitcher for Cal State Northridge, said he wasn't trying to do anything fancy Thursday when he replaced starter Jeremy Hernandez in the seventh inning of the Matadors' California Collegiate Athletic Assn. opener against Cal Poly Pomona.

Five games into the collegiate baseball season, Cal State Northridge Coach Terry Craven is more concerned with performance than result. That explains his evaluation of the Matadors' 4-2 victory over U. S. International University on Wednesday afternoon at Northridge. "I was thinking that at some point, we're going to have to get the killer instinct of really trying to put somebody away," Craven said.

The Padres promoted outfielder Darrell Sherman and six other prospects to their 40-man roster that was submitted Friday to the National League office.

With four games rained out in the last five days, and another expected today, Cal State Northridge baseball Coach Terry Craven is geared for the unknown. In other words, he will soon find out the depth of his pitching staff. "It is going to test the pitching of every team in the conference," Craven said. "The games are going to be very bunched. "It's not going to be a convenient type of schedule.
