As the press conference announcing the signing of Fernando Valenzuela was under way upstairs Monday evening, Angel pitcher Scott Lewis sat in the Anaheim Stadium clubhouse and pondered his future. Neither Angel Manager Doug Rader nor pitching coach Marcel Lachemann had told him how the acquisition would affect Lewis, the fifth starter in the rotation, but the rookie right-hander didn't need an explanation. "They don't have to tell me anything," said Lewis, who is 1-4 with a 6.

No matter how he fares as the Angels' fifth starter this season, Scott Lewis will consider himself incredibly lucky. His good fortune goes beyond being blessed with a strong right arm and sound pitching instincts. Those qualities helped him prevail over Joe Grahe in their competition to replace injured Bert Blyleven in the starting rotation, but they're not the main reasons Lewis greets each day with unfettered optimism.

Scott Lewis, who almost got into Thursday night's game in relief, will start against the Brewers tonight at Anaheim Stadium. He replaces Chuck Finley, who is still hampered by soreness in his left big toe. Manager Buck Rodgers had also considered starting Scott Bailes tonight, but Bailes hasn't started in the major leagues since 1989 and Lewis started 11 games for the Angels last season. He was 2-5 as a starter and 3-5 overall.

When Angel hitting instructor Rod Carew gave Scott Lewis his shirt to replace the pitcher's lost uniform, Lewis initially declined the Hall of Famer's offer. "I told him I didn't want it because it had too many hits in it," Lewis said. "I shouldn't have changed my mind." Lewis gave up seven runs in three innings of a 10-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians at Tucson's Hi Corbett Field. Albert Belle drove in four runs, three with a second-inning home run, and Carlos Baerga added a two-run double.

Scott Lewis made his major league debut Tuesday, but his initiation rite didn't take place until Sunday. Now he, too, can say he has pitched exceptionally well for the Angels only to lose, 2-1. Lewis joined a fraternity that welcomed Mark Langston four times, Kirk McCaskill twice and Jim Abbott and Chuck Finley once each this season.

The clubhouse was small, the lighting dim, the towels threadbare. Weary from a flight that took them from Calgary to Vancouver and a three-hour bus ride from Vancouver to Tacoma, members of the Edmonton Trappers taped sore ankles, stretched cramped muscles and shelved thoughts of future major league glory to focus on the immediate, their Pacific Coast League game against the Tacoma Tigers.

The handwriting was on the wall for Scott Lewis Sunday, but the young right-hander didn't pay it much attention. A neatly printed pitching schedule hangs on the bulletin board in the Angels' clubhouse, and Lewis is listed as the starter Thursday against the Giants. But he didn't dare think it meant he had won his competition with Joe Grahe to replace Bert Blyleven in the Angels' rotation. "I still haven't heard anything, and I'll never take anything for granted," Lewis said.

Scott Lewis listened to the hype that surrounds the Oakland Athletics, and he saw them live up to their reputation by winning the first three games of their series against the Angels at Anaheim Stadium. "I knew I was going to pitch against Oakland, and for the first couple days it was, 'Wow, I'm going to pitch against Jose (Canseco), Mark McGwire and all of those guys,' " Lewis said, widening his blue eyes to emphasize the awe he had for the defending American League champions.

Scott Lewis didn't lose his spot in the Angels' rotation Friday when he lost his fourth consecutive start. The rookie right-hander remains convinced he's not being overwhelmed by major league hitters, and Angel pitching coach Marcel Lachemann agreed the difference between failure and success for Lewis hasn't been huge. "It's not like he's getting his brains beat out," Lachemann said. "It's just making a couple of key pitches."

Dave Winfield had a very good month Saturday. Playing across the Mississippi River from his hometown of St. Paul, Winfield hit home runs in his first three at-bats, the first three home run night of his 18-year major league career. Still, that was far from all he did in the Angels' 15-9 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
