Angel catcher John Orton has been told he has a slightly torn tendon in his right elbow, and the Angels fear he will miss the rest of the season. Orton was given a magnetic resonance imaging exam by Boston Red Sox physician Arthur Pappas. It showed no major tear, Angel Manager Buck Rodgers said, but Orton may have to undergo exploratory surgery, ending his season. "Right now, I doubt he'll be back," Rodgers said. "It's a question of what do you do with his arm.

Lance Parrish postponed the inevitable once, but a torn thumbnail kept him from doing it twice. Parrish, who returned as the Angels' starting catcher this season only because John Orton was sidelined by a spring-training shoulder injury, lost his job Sunday when the Angels announced they will activate him off the disabled list Tuesday and place him on release waivers. They must pay the remainder of Parrish's 1992 salary--$2.25 million.

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.

In spring training, the Angels wanted to see if John Orton was ready to be the starting catcher. They are still waiting. Orton, held back by a shoulder injury most of the year, had only 46 major league at-bats and a .174 average to show for his season before rejoining the Angels on Saturday. Orton returned to Anaheim after catcher Greg Myers was put on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Friday because of a fracture in his right hand.

Catcher John Orton, who has a sore right shoulder, is considered day-to-day. "He's got to feel good for a couple days in a row, and then we'll take a shot with him," Rodgers said. . . . Catcher Lance Parrish, who was hitless Tuesday, is batting .115. Gary Gaetti, also hitless, is batting .154. "You're always concerned when a guy's not swinging the bat well, and neither of them is," Rodgers said. "We're not panicked. (But) it's very important that Lance starts to swing the bat better."
