The St. Louis Cardinals activated former Dodger reliever Scott Radinsky from the disabled list Saturday, putting former Angel reliever Mike James on the 15-day list to make room for him. Radinsky has been sidelined since last July with a strained left elbow, while James has a strained right shoulder. Radinsky had missed 47 games before Saturday. Manager Tony La Russa said Radinsky was available to pitch Saturday against the Mets, but didn't in his team's 12-8 loss.

Left-handed reliever Scott Radinsky, who two years ago wondered if he'd ever pitch again after learning he had Hodgkin's disease, signed a two-year, $1.8-million contract Wednesday with the Dodgers. Radinsky, 28, was 5-1 with a 2.42 earned-run average as a setup man for closer Todd Worrell. The Dodgers now will try to sign fellow free-agent left-hander Mark Guthrie and have scheduled a meeting early next week.

He then went 5-4 with a 4.33 ERA in 10 starts for the Rangers.

Scott Radinsky, who pitched more than 100 innings for Simi Valley High this season in a remarkable display of endurance, was knocked out of action over the weekend not by an elbow or shoulder injury, but by a newspaper article. Radinsky had planned to play in the state's annual North-South All-Star tournament in Stockton last weekend. But he signed a professional contract with the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

First baseman Eric Karros was relieved Monday to learn that he has only tendinitis and not a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder, but still does not know whether he will be playing opening day. Karros, who underwent an MRI test, was told to refrain from hitting or playing again until Thursday, when he will test the shoulder in a workout at Dodger Stadium. "I didn't sleep too well last night," Karros said. "I was concerned something was really wrong.

Relief pitcher Scott Radinsky was so angry after catcher Todd Hundley singled off his glove to load the bases with one out in the eighth inning that he fielded 70 grounders from coach Mark Cresse after the Dodgers' 6-5 victory over the Mets on Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Hundley hit a comebacker that Radinsky might have been able to turn into a double play, but he failed to field it cleanly. Radinsky then walked Carlos Baerga on a 3-and-2 pitch as the Mets took a 5-4 lead.

With a big grin on his face, Chicago White Sox pitcher Scott Radinsky stepped up to the mound and began firing balls over home plate. Comiskey Park? Not quite. Try Simi Valley's Houghton Schreiber Park. A Simi Valley native, Radinsky visited Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District's youth baseball camp Thursday to toss a few pitches, sign autographs and mostly smile a lot as 40 thrilled baseball fiends--ages 7 to 12--watched his every move. "Throw from second base," his young friends urged.

Scott Radinsky sat alone in the Dodger dugout, still in uniform more than an hour after Sunday's game. It could be he had taken a sudden interest in the ground crew's work as it manicured the infield, but it's more likely he was staring vacantly into space.

Here's the ultimate dilemma for 16-year-old Peter Tuber of Granada Hills High: In his wildest imagination, he must decide between playing his guitar on stage with Pantera at the Great Western Forum or pitching for the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Which one would he choose? Two years ago, Tuber determined he couldn't do both. He quit baseball to devote his free time to playing guitar.

The worlds of major league baseball and punk rock have almost nothing in common. Except Scott Radinsky. The Dodger relief pitcher is also the lead singer for Pulley, a punk band that has recorded two albums for Epitaph Records and tours extensively each winter. And though his Dodger contract pays him $900,000 a year and Pulley won't show up on the Billboard charts any time soon, it's clear that Radinsky shares more of a kinship with Johnny Rotten than with Johnny Bench.

Pulley is a pretty strange band even by rock 'n' roll standards. First of all, the band only plays four months of the year, but then again, they play so hard and so fast, perhaps they need eight months to recuperate. Actually, three-quarters of Pulley has to wait each year for their lead singer, Scott Radinsky, to finish his steady gig as a left-handed relief pitcher for the Dodgers. Pulley will headline an all-ages gig Tuesday night at the Living Room in Goleta.

The Dodgers' veteran cancer survivor sits on the dugout, taps the fat end of a bat on the floor in front of him, tapping, tapping. "It's not like I don't want to be an inspiration," he says. "But I don't feel I have to tell the world." So the world sits in relative darkness, cheering Brett Butler last weekend as if he were the first Dodger to fight cancer, surrounding him in awe and wonder. Knowing not that in the bullpen sat a guy who, two years ago, beat Hodgkin's Disease.

Play ball? Scott Radinsky would love to. In fact, Radinsky said, he is more eager to return to the playing field than any other major leaguer. Yet Radinsky, a left-handed reliever for the Chicago White Sox and former star for Simi Valley High, was not satisfied Friday with the news that players had agreed to end their 232-day strike after a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction, ordering owners to restore provisions of baseball's expired collective-bargaining agreement.
