The Cleveland Indians intend to ask their players to sign contracts that include a clause allowing drug testing, team President Peter Bavasi said. "This is a request by us for them to embrace such a clause and go along with the efforts of baseball to clean up our game," Bavasi said. "It is not punitive. The clause is designed to accomplish two objectives: to amplify the general concern (about drug abuse) we all have and to show our players that we are concerned about their well being."

Peter Bavasi, the Angels' general manager, distributed a one-page questionnaire to players after practice Saturday, asking if they would be willing to participate in exhibition games and, in effect, be labeled as strikebreakers. Players have until this afternoon to return the questionnaire, but a team official said many of the 49 in camp had already done so before heading back to the clubhouse. The Angels open their exhibition season against Arizona State on Wednesday night in Tempe.

Three American League teams protested the Cleveland Indians' waiver-trade of Bert Blyleven to the Minnesota Twins, but the baseball commissioner's office has upheld the deal. Blyleven was allowed to be claimed on waivers by the Twins on Thursday, and the Twins, in what the Indians said was a separate but related deal, sold pitcher Curt Wardle and minor league players Jay Bell and Jim Weaver to the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians backed off from an original plan to close the stadium bleachers and will now open them for all afternoon games, including the home opener with the New York Yankees on April 13. The team management also said the bleachers will be opened for other games if potential crowd size warrants it. Bleacher seats will still cost $2 each, the team said.
