When the Angels needed an emergency pitcher last month because Kirk McCaskill had a tender elbow and Chuck Finley had twisted an ankle, they went to Schu.

Otis Nixon's attempt to shorten his drug suspension from 60 days to time served was turned down Friday by George Nicolau, baseball's permanent arbitrator. Atlanta's free-agent outfielder was suspended by Commissioner Fay Vincent on Sept. 16 after testing positive for cocaine.
