Manager Marcel Lachemann took advantage of Friday night's postponement in Chicago to juggle his pitching rotation, a move that will give injured starter Scott Sanderson two more days to recover from a groin strain. Jason Grimsley, who was scheduled to start Friday night, will pitch Monday night against the White Sox instead of Sanderson, who left Wednesday night's game against Milwaukee in the fourth inning.

Starter Scott Sanderson likely will be released or traded, Manager Buck Rodgers said Sunday, if the front office decides this week to replace Sanderson in the rotation with Phil Leftwich. "It's going to be one way or the other," Rodgers said. "If he stays here, he's going to be pitching (in the rotation). If he doesn't start, he's gone. "I can't see keeping Scott Sanderson around as a long man or a bullpen guy. I don't seen any in between."

The New York Yankees acquired pitcher Scott Sanderson from the Oakland Athletics Monday and appeared to intensify their efforts to re-sign Mike Witt, one of their two new-look free-agent pitchers. Sanderson, a 34-year-old right-hander who was 17-11 last season with a 3.88 earned-run average, agreed to a two-year contract worth about $4.75 million. Sanderson will join a rotation expected to include Pascual Perez, Tim Leary and Andy Hawkins.

He had surgery to repair herniated disks in his lower back in 1988 and 1995, both potential career-ending procedures, and came to spring training as a longshot to make the team. But pitcher Scott Sanderson, 39, is still standing, still retiring major league hitters, and for that reason he's expected to survive the third round of cuts today and has a good chance of making the opening-day roster.

To fans in HoHoKam Park in Mesa, Ariz., it was a rocky pitching performance. To Angel right-hander Scott Sanderson, it was progress. Sure, Sanderson gave up four runs on five hits in two innings of the Angels' 13-12 exhibition victory over the Chicago Cubs Saturday. But he got to cover first on a grounder, work from the stretch, back up third and home . . . all the things coaches weren't sure he could do after back surgery in 1995.

The Angels won't come out and say it, but they are not counting on the return this season of pitcher Scott Sanderson, who has been on the disabled list since June 6 because of a herniated disk in his lower back. The seriousness of Sanderson's injury and his age--the right-hander turns 39 on July 22--have slowed his progress. "He's a very dedicated, well-conditioned athlete who follows all of our directions," trainer Rick Smith said. "But age is a factor.

The Angels rolled a first-place team, a pitching staff with the major league's lowest earned-run average and a defense that hadn't committed an error in five games onto the Metrodome carpet Monday night and promptly had the rug pulled from under them. Right-hander Scott Sanderson was bombed for six runs in 3 2/3 innings by a Minnesota team that has the worst record in the American League, and the usually sure-handed Angels committed two errors in a 9-6 loss to the Twins before a paltry 9,407.
