Second baseman Damion Easley's shin splints flared up again, forcing him to sit out Saturday's game. He also probably will sit out tonight's series finale against Boston's Roger Clemens, although he said he's trying to talk Manager Buck Rodgers into letting him play. "One day off should be enough to calm down (the shin splints)," said Easley, who is three for five lifetime against Clemens. "I don't plan on missing three weeks like I did during spring training."

ATLANTA - Andre Ethier was officially named to the Dodgers' roster for the National League Division Series, which was released Thursday morning. Ethier is recovering from shin splints on his left leg and still can't play the outfield. He will be used as a pinch-hitter. With Ethier limited and Matt Kemp unavailable because of a season-ending ankle injury, the Dodgers included Scott Van Slyke on their playoff roster. Van Slyke not only gives the Dodgers cover in the outfield but also provides them with a power bat off the bench.

SAN FRANCISCO - Andre Ethier isn't expected to play again during the regular season, Manager Don Mattingly said Thursday. “That doesn't mean we're still not moving forward,” Mattingly said. And it doesn't mean Ethier will miss the playoffs. The Dodgers are scheduled to open play in the National League division series next Thursday. Ethier, who is recovering from shin splints on his left leg, won't be cleared to play until he can run the bases. Mattingly said the Dodgers will wait as long as possible to have Ethier test his leg on the basepaths.

In the past year, Pete Sampras: --Won the U.S. Open tennis tournament. --Made $5.5 million. --Endorsed watches and sunglasses. --Developed shin splints. --Got over them. --Lost his coach. --Rehired him. --Moved up 76 places in the rankings, from 81 to 5. --Moved to Florida. Other than that, it all has been pretty routine for the youngest U.S. Open champion in history, a distinction no one lets him forget. "Sometimes, the Open feels like it was only last week," Sampras said.

Et tu_____. I'm sure Pete Sampras could fill in several blanks with the names of those who gave up on him. But they hadn't taken his measure. Didn't they see him play through tears for a deceased coach and friend, through dehydration and shin splints? Don't they know this man is all heart, something we didn't give him credit for early on. Well, Pete can play until he's 50. I'll still watch because he's the greatest tennis player ever, and we should never underestimate his ability to astound.

A quick checklist on Damion Easley's condition. Pulled muscles? Easley: "None." Shin splints? "None." Collisions with teammates? "I put my blinkers on when I make turns now." Those were some of the things that plagued Easley's four-plus seasons with the Angels. Injuries kept him out of the lineup, kept him from developing and kept him frustrated. All of that is in the past, Easley hopes. On Friday, he came into Anaheim Stadium with the Detroit Tigers.

The Angels, alarmed about second baseman Damion Easley's chronic leg injuries--fearing that he might have a stress fracture rather than shin splints--have discussed the possibility of season-ending surgery with Easley. "They've mentioned exploratory surgery with me," Easley said Thursday. "If they could guarantee me being 100%, and never having that problem any more, I'd do it. "I'll be honest, this is scaring me a little bit.

Charger owner Alex Spanos reported no progress Tuesday in negotiations with first-round draft choices Leslie O'Neal and James FitzPatrick. Spanos also indicated that he would be surprised if running back Lionel James, who is seeking a new contract as he enters his option year, is a holdout when the full squad reports Friday. Spanos vigorously defended the offers he has made to O'Neal and FitzPatrick along with fourth-rounders Ty Allert and Tommy Taylor, who also are holdouts.

While no one was feeling exactly chipper after the Angels' 4-3, 14-inning defeat Monday to the Seattle Mariners, no one was feeling quite like Ron Tingley. Tingley, who caught the last 4 1/3 innings, stole his first base in two years, and even recorded his first plate appearances of the season. He played more Tuesday than he played the previous seven weeks combined. "I'm sure my wife will cut out the box score," Tingley said, laughing, "just to prove I'm still playing."
