As of Tuesday, pitcher Ed Whitson will become the 10th Padre to be placed on the disabled list this season. The veteran righthander has been bothered by a sore pitching elbow for almost a month, and was forced to miss his turn Saturday night. His consignment to the DL will be retroactive to last Monday, the last time he pitched. General Manager Joe McIlvaine announced the decision after Sunday's victory over the Houston Astros.

Padre starter Ed Whitson, who might have been traded to the Montreal Expos if he had remained healthy, underwent arthroscopic surgery Monday night in Birmingham, Ala., to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews, who earlier in the day did an arthrogram that confirmed the presence of a bone spur. Whitson, who likely will miss the remainder of the season, will remain in Birmingham until Thursday, when he begins his rehabiliation process.

He had attended counseling sessions when the rider was undergoing treatment for cocaine addiction last winter. He understood the magnitude of the danger that drugs posed for the 23-year-old. So Mollica immediately feared the worst when Antley didn't show up at Belmont Park Saturday morning.

Even if it opens up a hornets' nest, the owner of the San Jose Bees is giving another crack at professional baseball to four ex-major leaguers whose problems with drug addiction ruined their careers. The baseball careers of pitchers Steve Howe and Mike Norris, infielder Ken Reitz and infielder-outfielder Derrel Thomas may yet be saved by Harry Steve, owner of the San Jose club of the Class A California League.

Otis Nixon played in the first inning of Tuesday night's Minnesota-Toronto game. When the Blue Jays took the field in the second inning, however, Nixon was missing. He had been yanked out of the lineup and dropped into the middle of a division race. The Dodgers, anxious to put more men on base, more speed in their lineup and more experience on the roster, acquired Nixon from the Blue Jays on Tuesday for minor league catcher Bobby Cripps.

They were married that summer on the only day Randy Ready didn't have a baseball game. It was El Paso, 1982. Ready was a 22-year-old infielder with a passion, and his girl Dorene was someone who understood. The church was tiny, the congregation numbered two: a buddy and his girlfriend. They doubled as the best man and maid of honor. They kissed the bride. They threw the rice.

Padre outfielder Joe Carter stood in the tunnel Monday night before the game, watching the rain fall, and listening to the griping and complaining of his teammates. Carter just stood there and smiled. Oh, is it raining? Hmm, a little damp? Kind of chilly, is it? "This is my kind of weather," Carter said. "I'm a mudder (mud-player)." Remember, you're talking to a guy who spent his past six seasons in Cleveland.
