After a rocky spring training and a shaky start at triple-A Vancouver, pitcher Jerry Nielsen finally made it to Anaheim Stadium. He said what hurt him most during the spring was his inability to keep the ball away from the hitters. "Basically, I wasn't getting my pitches down in the strike zone," said Nielsen, who replaced Joe Grahe on the roster. "I was plenty strong. My velocity was good."

The Angels traded their most popular player Sunday night. They traded Jim Abbott to the New York Yankees for three prospects who will be earning the minimum salary in next season. The knee-jerk reaction is to suggest that these are clearly the bottom line Angels now. The knee-jerk reaction is to suggest that you have to get at least one impact player in return for a pitcher with a proven record and heroic story.

He doesn't have to give his regards to Broadway or spend a full season with the animals in the Bronx Zoo. Former Angel Jim Abbott is ready to make a multiyear commitment to the New York Yankees--if and when the right offer is presented. "I don't believe in going team to team, looking for that rainbow you may never find," he said the other day. "I believe in playing for one team or as few teams as you can. That's the way the game has been passed down.

In a move that confirmed the ascendance of business over sentiment in baseball, the Angels on Sunday traded Jim Abbott, their most popular and recognizable player, because they couldn't sign him to a long-term contract. Abbott, 25, was traded to the New York Yankees for first baseman J.T. Snow--the son of former Ram standout Jack Snow--right-hander Russ Springer and left-handed reliever Jerry Nielsen.

The Angels, who have been playing with a 22-man roster this week because of injuries and a player suspension, have decided to put right-handed reliever Joe Grahe and catcher John Orton on the disabled list. Grahe, who has not pitched since last Friday because of tendinitis in his rotator cuff, will be replaced by left-hander Jerry Nielsen, called up from triple-A Vancouver. Nielsen has a 2-2 record and a 5.02 earned-run average. Grahe is eligible to be activated June 20.

The Angels completed their trade for outfielder Dave Gallagher by sending inconsistent, underachieving right-hander Russ Springer to Philadelphia. Last Wednesday, the Angels acquired Gallagher for Kevin Flora, a minor-league utility player, and a player to be selected later. Springer, in two stints with the Angels this season, was 1-2 in 19 appearances, including six starts. He had a 6.10 earned-run average in 51 2/3 innings. He also was 2-0 with a 3.44 ERA in six starts at triple-A Vancouver.

Pitcher Russ Springer arrived at Anaheim Stadium and looked around, only to see a sign above the empty locker between outfielders Bo Jackson and Dwight Smith. It said: "There goes the neighborhood." "It's good to be wanted, huh?" said Springer, laughing. Springer, 7-4 with a 3.04 earned-run average at triple-A Vancouver, was called up to replace starter Phil Leftwich in the Angel rotation. Leftwich was put on the 15-day disabled list because of an inflamed lower right leg.

The California Lottery may not be a bonanza for all. Nearly two-thirds of 1,200 grocery chains surveyed by the California Grocers Assn. have reported a decline in food sales since the lottery began last fall. The average drop was 7%. The others reported sales increases averaging 5%. Grocery sales are subject to many forces, including seasonal changes in the pattern of purchases. But the decline starting with the launching of the lottery seems to be more than coincidence.

The Angels finally found their left-handed reliever Sunday, and as threatened, they went to the waiver wire to do it. Ken Patterson, 28, who was released last week by the Houston Astros after pitching the last four seasons for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs, signed a one-year major league contract. He has a 13-7 record and 3.73 earned-run average in 177 relief appearances, and had given up 10 hits and three earned runs in nine innings this spring.
