Justin Baughman couldn't put his finger on it. It wasn't the uniform switch, from No. 13 the last time he was in the big leagues to No. 8 Saturday. It wasn't the position switch, from second base in 1998 to shortstop, where he probably will split time with Benji Gil after being recalled from triple-A Edmonton on Friday night to replace the injured Kevin Stocker. "It's different this time around," Baughman said. "I don't know how yet; it just doesn't feel the same. But I think I'm ready."

Justin Baughman is back in the big picture with the Angels, through fate and hard work. Baughman was moved from second base to shortstop, his original position, and was promoted from double-A Erie to triple-A Edmonton. Through Friday, he is hitting .280 with the Trappers. The Angels have a need at shortstop, as Gary DiSarcina is out for the season following shoulder surgery. He is also in the last year of his contract. Benji Gil is hitting a woeful .185 as DiSarcina's replacement.

Second baseman Justin Baughman, who broke his leg in five places in a collision during a Mexican Winter League game last November, is likely facing more surgery and his chances for returning this season could be in doubt. "It's not healing the way we'd like and we're looking at ways of stimulating things," team physician Lewis Yocum said. "Right now, we're presenting him with three or four surgical options. It's not anything Justin has done, it's just the nature of the fracture.

The Angels didn't exactly place a welcome mat in front of Justin Baughman's locker this winter. They bumped him off their 40-man roster, designated him for assignment and turned competition for the second-base job he held in 1998 into an all-comers meet this spring. Baughman monitored the transaction wire during the off-season, saw the Angels sign the likes of Scott Spiezio, Pat Kelly, Jason Bates, Carlos Garcia, Benji Gil and Archi Cianfrocco, and kept thinking: Hey, what about me?

Manager Terry Collins had said he would make a move in Monday's game that would surprise many players, and it wasn't having Dave Hollins leading off during a 10-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. It was putting 23-year-old shortstop Justin Baughman in at second base in the sixth inning, an indication that Collins won't simply hand the job to Norberto Martin, 31, if Randy Velarde can't recover from elbow surgery by opening day. Martin is a lifetime .

Baughman the burner was in overdrive. Justin Baughman (pronounced BOK-man) had just dropped a sacrifice bunt in front of the mound and was streaking toward first. Oakland pitcher Mike Oquist pounced on the ball, glanced at third and realized he shouldn't have peeked. Oquist threw his best fastball of the night to first, but the fastest man in the Angels' organization got there first.

Justin Baughman may be in the big leagues and making significant contributions as the Angels' second baseman, but membership doesn't always have its privileges. When Angel pitcher Allen Watson returned from his minor league rehabilitation start Saturday and needed a locker in the Angels' Qualcomm Stadium clubhouse Sunday, Baughman, a rookie, got bumped into a corner stall that sits in the dark and cannot even be seen from the middle of the clubhouse.

The Angels have made what Randy Johnson's agent characterized as a competitive proposal for the free-agent left-hander, and the team remains in the hunt for first baseman Mo Vaughn and pitcher Todd Stottlemyre. But Tuesday night, General Manager Bill Bavasi turned his attention to second base, where the effort to re-sign Randy Velarde took on added urgency after highly regarded second-base prospect Justin Baughman suffered a major leg injury that could sideline him for up to six months.

It can make your head spin, Angel second baseman Justin Baughman admits. Learning to play a new position in the heat of a pennant race, making the leap from Class A to the big leagues in less than a year. "Sometimes I do feel overwhelmed," said Baughman, who was six for 39 (.153) with two runs and one RBI in 14 games before Saturday night's game against the Orioles. "It's hard to distinguish my thoughts from being in a pennant race and keeping my job.

Manager Terry Collins and designated hitter Tim Salmon won't be the only notable absences in the Angel lineup tonight when the team begins a three-game interleague series against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. Second baseman Justin Baughman, who was hit in the face by a Curtis Goodwin line drive in the seventh inning of Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies, did not travel with the Angels on Monday and is expected to be sidelined six to 10 days.
