Left-hander Teddy Higuera will rejoin the Milwaukee Brewers this week but only so team officials can observe his progress as he tries to recover from rotator cuff surgery. Higuera pitched in only seven games last season after he signed a four-year, $13-million deal. Sal Bando, who directs the Brewers' baseball operations, said he doesn't know if Higuera will be able to pitch for the Brewers this season.

CBS has given sportscaster Pat Summerall an indefinite period off to take care of what it calls "a personal medical problem," a network spokeswoman said Monday. The spokeswoman called it a private matter, but other sources indicated that the problem is alcohol-related. Summerall, who has been with CBS for 32 years, will be welcomed back when he is ready to come back, the spokeswoman said. In the meantime, Jim Nantz will replace him on televised golf assignments.
