A day after Ramon Ortiz was found to have a slight tear in his shoulder and a week after Jarrod Washburn went down with a strained chest muscle, Scott Schoeneweis gave the Angels' ailing pitching corps a boost Thursday. The left-hander gave up two runs and five hits and struck out four in a five-inning performance against Oakland, which beat the Angels, 4-3. Schoeneweis' sinker was working and he threw a few impressive fastballs to the inside corner. He has a 2.25 ERA in 12 spring innings.

Scott Schoeneweis hated pitching in relief for the Angels, and his griping about his demotion from the rotation to the bullpen contributed to him being traded to the Chicago White Sox in July 2003. But the left-hander can think of about 5.2 million reasons -- namely, the two-year, $5.2-million contract he signed with Toronto last winter -- why he has embraced a full-time relief role. "That made it easier to accept," Schoeneweis said, referring to his contract.

Although it's good to see Kevin Appier is concerned about SARS and how it is affecting metropolitan Toronto, I'd say the more immediate danger to Angel pitchers is whiplash as they twist their necks watching gopher balls whiz by them. Given the complete ineffectiveness of Appier as an Angel pitcher and his burden on the payroll, I think that most Angel fans would rather see Appier contract his own form of SARS: Sudden Acute Retirement Syndrome. Paul Ollen Lakewood Kevin Appier and the rest of the Angels can rest assured that simply coming to Toronto does not put anyone at risk from SARS.

Contracts no longer guarantee salvation. After the Angels released their highest-salaried player Wednesday, cutting pitcher Kevin Appier a farewell check for $15.67 million, pitcher Jarrod Washburn summarized the moral of the story in five words. "Play well or you're gone," Washburn said. However, it is unlikely any dismissals will result from Wednesday's 8-0 loss to the New York Yankees.

The Angels and pitcher Scott Schoeneweis averted arbitration Tuesday when the left-hander agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.425-million contract, more than four times his salary of $325,000 in 2002. Schoeneweis, 29, who had a 9-8 record and a 4.88 earned-run average in 54 games last season but was unhappy with a demotion from the rotation to the bullpen after 15 starts, can earn up to $25,000 in incentives, based on a point system devised by his agent, Scott Boras.

Scott Schoeneweis acknowledged Monday that he had initiated a closed-door meeting the previous day with Angel Manager Mike Scioscia and pitching coach Bud Black "along the lines" of his frustrations with his diminished role in the bullpen. But the reluctant reliever declined to elaborate, saying he didn't want his dissatisfaction to distract his teammates' push to get back into playoff contention.

Scott Schoeneweis has made solid progress toward eliminating himself as the weakest link in the Angel bullpen over his last five appearances, throwing 4 2/3 scoreless innings to lower his earned-run average from 8.64 to 5.68. The left-hander did not give up a hit or walk, and struck out a season-high three batters over 1 2/3 innings Friday in the Angels' 6-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. "I think Schoeny is pitching with much more confidence," Angel Manager Mike Scioscia said.

This Tiger season should have a familiar ring to some of the Angels. It's beginning to look like a rewrite of the Angels' 1999 season, when mounting losses and clubhouse turmoil tore the team apart after the All-Star break. The Angels lost 11 consecutive games in late July 1999 to fall out of the playoff race. The Tigers have lost 11 of 14 games and are 20 games under .500. A bench-clearing brawl with the Cleveland Indians on Aug.

Scott Schoeneweis was truly bewildered. He worked ahead in the count, he kept all but one sinker down, he induced loads of ground balls, and he gave up nine runs on 11 hits in 4 2/3 innings of a 12-3 Cactus League loss to the Chicago White Sox Tuesday. "I've never pitched that well and given up that many runs," Schoeneweis said. "I'm baffled, really. . . . I was ahead of every hitter, I hit my spots except for my last pitch [a two-run homer by Chris Singleton].

Scott Schoeneweis packed his bags and headed off to join this year's pennant race. His teammates are left with memories of last year's. The Angels traded Schoeneweis to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, for a long reliever, two relief prospects with mixed reviews and a few bucks in savings. Then they got hammered by the New York Yankees, 6-2, leaving Kevin Appier teetering in the starting rotation after failing to survive a four-run first inning.

Left-hander Scott Schoeneweis said Monday he no longer considered himself a candidate for the Angels' fifth starting spot because of his nagging hamstring injury, which has diminished his playing time. He has pitched only 6 2/3 innings this spring. "At this point I'm saying I'm out," said Schoeneweis, who does not consider the injury serious. "This only solidifies me being in the pen."

Mickey Callaway knew this might be his year to make the Angels' starting rotation out of spring training, so he intensified his off-season training regimen to prepare for the most important audition of his career. So far, so good. The right-hander pitched four scoreless innings during the Angels' 5-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Tempe Diablo Stadium, giving up only two hits and striking out four.

Two weeks ago, it was the Baltimore Orioles who steamed at the Angels after getting hit by pitches three times in two games. Thursday night, it was the Oakland A's who fumed at the Angels after getting hit by pitches five times--four by left-hander Scott Schoeneweis--in one game. "I don't like it," Oakland outfielder Terrence Long said. "[Schoeneweis] made it too obvious. I mean, he hit the same guy, Frankie [Menechino], twice. I ain't having that."
