The Yankees reshuffled their left fielders after Sunday's game, sending slumping Ricky Ledee, 25, to triple-A Columbus and recalling Shane Spencer, 27, from the International League club. . . . First baseman Jeff King of the Kansas City Royals was activated from the disabled list and was in the lineup for the Royals against the Minnesota Twins. King, 34, had been on the disabled list since April 19 because of soreness in his back.

Dodgers second baseman Jeff Kent deemed himself OK to play Thursday after taking batting practice, delaying for a day the return of outfielder Ricky Ledee. Had Kent felt pain in the abdominal muscle that sidelined him the last six games, the Dodgers would have placed him on the disabled list and activated Ledee, who has been on out since May 2 because of a groin injury. Kent was lifted in the sixth inning as part of a double switch after going 0 for 3 and striking out twice.

Ricky Ledee played through the pain without a peep once again. The veteran outfielder has a nagging hamstring injury he seems to aggravate every time he runs from first to third or chases a ball near the foul line. But he never complains or asks for a day off. No one who watched Ledee make an outstanding over-the-shoulder catch of Nomar Garciaparra's drive in the sixth inning Tuesday night would know he is hurting.

Left-handed-hitting Ricky Ledee saw a left-hander warming up in New York's bullpen and figured he wouldn't get a chance to bat. He stayed in and delivered another key hit. Ledee hit a tiebreaking, three-run double, and Marlon Byrd and Bobby Abreu hit solo homers that led the Philadelphia Phillies to their fifth consecutive victory, 9-6 over the Mets on Saturday night at Philadelphia.

A team anxiously awaiting an encouraging dispatch from the trainer's room back home got a double dose. Outfielder Milton Bradley felt no pain in his injured finger after taking 35 swings against soft toss, and outfielder Ricky Ledee reported that his left hamstring was fine after running full speed around the bases.

Hollywood's team has an actor on the roster, sort of. In Kevin Costner's 1999 movie "For Love of the Game," Dodger outfielder Ricky Ledee portrayed a ballplayer. And what did Ledee do? "Strike out," he said with a smile, "like always." The comment reflected the humility necessary for any bench player to last in the major leagues. Ledee could start in left field on opening day, but only if Jayson Werth's arm does not heal in time. The Dodgers signed Ledee in December to a two-year, $2.

The New York Yankees haven't received much production from their left fielders in the postseason. Manager Joe Torre tried many players in that role, and nothing seemed to work. Rookie Ricky Ledee got the assignment Saturday night in Game 1 of the World Series because Torre figured Ledee would do the best job defensively. Torre got more than he expected.
