Cuban-born drummer Armando Peraza, a self-taught musician who transformed himself from a homeless orphan in Havana to a world-recognized bongo and conga expert who performed with Carlos Santana for nearly two decades, died Monday in a South San Francisco hospital. The cause was pneumonia, said his wife, Josephine Peraza. Peraza had also battled diabetes for many years. Officially, Peraza was 89, but he admitted that he made up a birth date to give to authorities when he came to the United States in the late 1940s and was never sure of his exact age. Peraza, who also played with George Shearing and other jazz greats, was known for combining a blindingly fast drumming technique with a flamboyant style that audiences loved.

When Santana High's Mike Hook was 7 and looking for a position on his first Little League baseball team, his coaches shuffled him around the infield, the outfield and finally to the mound. "They put me on the mound and told me to throw to the catcher and see what happens," Hook said. What happened was that Hook threw harder than anyone else on the team. The 6-foot, 194-pound senior has depended on his overpowering fastball ever since.

L.A.'s top budget official on Monday advised the city's elected leaders to resist the temptation to expand services, saying they should work toward eliminating a recurring deficit by 2018 instead. In a 37-page report, City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana said a rebounding economy and greater stability in the city's own finances have created new pressure to add or expand local government. He recommended that council members focus on other initiatives, such as reducing entry-level city salaries and securing new health-care concessions from the workforce.

For the first time in several seasons, there doesn't appear to be a clear-cut favorite in the Grossmont League baseball race, which begins today. "There is no dominant team in the league," Valhalla Coach John Marlow said. "It could be a five- or six-team race. It could go to anybody." Said Jim Saska, coach of Santana, defending league and San Diego Section 3-A champion: "You could see the league champ losing four games this year."

A committee of Los Angeles City Council members voted unanimously Monday to solicit a new round of bids for a private Convention Center operator, ensuring that Anschutz Entertainment Group will have a shot at the contract after being threatened with exclusion. City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana last week announced that AEG was "non-responsive" to the city's request for a contract proposal. The firm, which built and operates Staples Center and L.A. Live, the Convention Center's immediate neighbors, returned its application on time but failed to produce financial documents, Santana said.

So even though he's holed up in an elegant Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow he's had at his disposal "forever" - fielding phone calls, e-mails and, yes, even faxes while organizing the annual pre-Grammy Awards bash he's again hosting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel - the veteran producer and record executive makes a point of talking about a project especially close to his heart: a Whitney Houston live album....

Bartolo Colon SP | Oakland A Cy Young Award winner with the Angels in 2005, Colon landed on Billy Beane's doorstep in Oakland last season as a journeyman with a history of shoulder woes. The right-hander quickly provided quality starts and veteran leadership to the Athletics' young and talented staff before being handed a 50-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Ervin Santana will make his first-ever start against the Angels on Thursday night when the Kansas City Royals right-hander faces his ex-teammates in Kauffman Stadium. Santana spent the first eight years of his big league career in Anaheim, going 96-80 with a 4.27 earned-run average in 244 games, including a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians in 2011. But when it became clear the Angels had no interest in exercising Santana's $13-million option for 2013, he was traded to the Royals for reliever Brandon Sisk and $1 million in cash.

Although Carlos Santana's comment about Seattle music being too white for his taste sounded racist, he is, in fact, quite accurate (Letters, Aug. 16). Since the time we moved to Seattle from L.A. in 1994, we have noticed the same fact . . . and we are white. Evolved from a largely Nordic community, this area offers more polka music than most humans can stand. Grunge is gone. Hip-hop is rare. We have only heard Latin music on the few occasions Los Lobos has visited. We miss the diversity, depth and tradition of cultures found in L.A. Santana is just being truthful.

A five-year package of raises being offered to employees of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power could put a major burden on the utility's retirement system, according to a report prepared by the city's top budget official. The agreement, which contains five consecutive increases for DWP employees, could cause the utility's yearly pension contribution to increase by more than 150% by 2014, according to the confidential report, a copy of which was obtained by The Times. The DWP sets aside 30 cents for its pension expenses for every dollar it spends on salaries, City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana wrote in his report.

Johan Santana might have thrown his final pitch for the New York Mets and perhaps even the last of his big league career. The Mets said Thursday that the two-time Cy Young Award winner probably has re-torn the anterior capsule in his left shoulder and probably will need a second operation that would sideline him for the entire season. Santana missed 2011 following his first shoulder surgery. New York owes the 34-year-old left-hander $31 million more as part of the $137.5-million, six-year deal he signed before the 2008 season, and Alderson said the remainder of the contract is not covered by insurance.
