Baltimore Manager Davey Johnson said the Orioles plan to recall a pitcher from the minor leagues Monday, which could mean Shawn Boskie will not start Tuesday as scheduled. Johnson, however, would not say that Boskie, who has been inconsistent as a starter, will be replaced in the rotation. Boskie pitched three perfect innings of relief in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

The Angels signed right-handed starter Shawn Boskie to a minor-league contract Monday and invited him to spring training. Boskie, who signed a free-agent minor-league contract last year, was 7-7 with a 5.64 earned-run average in 20 starts. He was 6-2 with a 4.81 ERA after 13 starts when he was placed on the disabled list with an inflamed right elbow on July 17. He did not pitch again until Sept. 1. "Shawn did a lot of good things for 2 1/2 months," said Tim Mead, Angel assistant general manager.

Right-handed pitcher Shawn Boskie, who won a career-high 12 games for the Angels last season, signed a one-year contract Monday with the Baltimore Orioles. The Angels apparently believed they could afford to let Boskie go after acquiring left-hander Allen Watson in last month's deal that sent Gold Glove first baseman J.T. Snow to the San Francisco Giants. Boskie was 12-11 with a 5.32 earned-run average in 37 games, including 28 starts last season. Three of his victories were against the Orioles.

Pitcher Shawn Boskie was traded to the Seattle Mariners by the Philadelphia Phillies for a minor league player to be named. Boskie, 27, is 4-6 with a 5.23 ERA in 18 games and 84 1/3 innings this season, including 14 starts. The Mariners said Boskie is expected to join them in Boston on Saturday. * Philadelphia Phillie Manager Jim Fregosi will miss no games during his treatment for chronic back problems, a team spokesman said.

As his teammates took the field for Thursday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Shawn Boskie reported to work for his first day of a new job: relief pitcher. "It's definitely a letdown," said Boskie, pulled from the starting rotation after pitching poorly in Monday night's 11-10 loss in Seattle. "It's disappointing because we as a team haven't played as well as we will, and I didn't hold up my end of the bargain."

Shawn Boskie, who starts against Baltimore tonight, has a videotape of the game he pitched in Camden Yards on Sept. 6, when Oriole shortstop Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive-games record of 2,130, but he hasn't watched it. "I can remember clearly everything that happened," Boskie said. "Maybe one day, 40 years from now, it will be neat to watch."

He swore it wouldn't happen again, vowed to take measures to prevent it, but in the end, he had no defense for it. Once again, the month of September chewed up pitcher Shawn Boskie and spit him out. Boskie, a non-roster invitee to spring training, developed into one of the Angels' most consistent pitchers and carried a 12-7 record and 4.93 earned-run average into the final month. But Boskie went 0-4 with a 7.54 ERA in five September starts to finish 12-11 with a 5.32 ERA.

Just in case he wasn't paying close attention, the Angels showed their new manager why their old manager quit. They didn't pitch well, couldn't hit in the clutch, made physical and mental errors and looked like the last-place team they are. The Angels got it all wrong again, losing to the Minnesota Twins, 4-0, before 18,611 Wednesday night at Anaheim Stadium.

There was no eruption of obscenities, no questioning of anyone's intelligence, not even a snarl. Only a hint of sarcasm was layered beneath the soft-spoken reply. Shawn Boskie had allowed seven runs in managing to get only four outs, and the Angels had lost to Seattle, 15-3. Already showered and dressed, Boskie could have been halfway home. Instead, he was sitting in front of his locker, prepared to face the media music.

Pitcher Shawn Boskie is now tied with Kansas City's Mark Gubicza and San Francisco's Mark Leiter for the major league lead in home runs allowed with 22, and you know what? He really doesn't care. That's why, when Saturday's postgame discussion turned to Seattle first baseman Paul Sorrento's monster of a two-run homer into the upper deck in right field, Boskie asked, "Was it that far? I didn't see it. I knew it was gone, so there was no sense admiring it."

Had it not been for Texas Ranger outfielder Juan Gonzalez and his long, long home runs, Angel pitcher Shawn Boskie would have felt a little better about things. As it was, he could be only reasonably happy with a performance that would have normally been worth more. But the little victory was enough, especially since the Angles got a big one. Gonzalez took Boskie deep twice and drove in five runs in the first three innings Tuesday.

So what did you expect, the second coming of Tom Seaver? An invitation to the All-Star Game? A 20-win season and a Cy Young Award? Angel pitcher Shawn Boskie had been so dominant the last five weeks that almost anything seemed possible, his 4-1 record and 2.82 earned-run average since May 21 giving front-office officials reason to believe they might not have to trade for more pitching to contend this season.

Edgy and uncomfortable, Shawn Boskie fought a sense of impending doom and the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday. In the end, he overcame both, giving the Angels a relatively easy 6-4 victory before 35,464 at County Stadium. It was the Angels' 12th victory in 14 games and maintained their status as the hottest team in the major leagues. Years from now, Boskie might remember his eighth victory this season another way.
