Pitcher Kirk McCaskill, pulled from the starting rotation so Manager Buck Rodgers could give Kyle Abbott, Mike Fetters and Scott Lewis two starts each, probably will start a game during the Angels' trip to Texas and Chicago. Senior Vice President Dan O'Brien said he has told McCaskill's agent the Angels would welcome McCaskill back next season. However, O'Brien said discussions haven't gone beyond that with McCaskill or the club's other four free-agents-to-be.

While no one was feeling exactly chipper after the Angels' 4-3, 14-inning defeat Monday to the Seattle Mariners, no one was feeling quite like Ron Tingley. Tingley, who caught the last 4 1/3 innings, stole his first base in two years, and even recorded his first plate appearances of the season. He played more Tuesday than he played the previous seven weeks combined. "I'm sure my wife will cut out the box score," Tingley said, laughing, "just to prove I'm still playing."

Convinced that seeing is believing, Angel catcher Ron Tingley told his wife, Robin, to attend Saturday night's game at Anaheim Stadium. "She wanted to make sure I'm really coming to the ballpark every day when I leave the house," he said. "She says, 'Do you really play for the Angels?' " He does, but not often. Tingley's start against Toronto Saturday night was only his third of the season and his fourth appearance, a situation he is trying to accept with good humor.
