The Angels signed veteran second baseman Luis Alicea and oft-injured pitcher Steve Ontiveros to minor league contracts Monday, and both will join the club for spring training workouts in Tempe, Ariz., in mid-February. The team also was close Monday night to an agreement on a one-year contract for pitcher Allen Watson, who was acquired from the San Francisco Giants for first baseman J.T. Snow in November and is eligible for arbitration.

Steve Ontiveros took a first step toward securing a spot in the Angels' starting rotation Tuesday, pitching a perfect seventh inning during a 7-4, 10-inning victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at Chandler, Ariz. It was Ontiveros' first exhibition-game appearance. "I have a long way to go; my arm has a long way to go," he said. "I had some adrenaline going out there, and you can't simulate that on the sidelines, so the next couple of days will be telltale."

A $225,000 investment in pitcher Steve Ontiveros will yield no return this season. The right-hander, who has been on the disabled list since March 24, will undergo reconstructive elbow surgery Thursday, ending his season--and, possibly, his career. The news hardly shocked Angel front-office officials, who knew Ontiveros had four previous elbow operations and nine previous stints on the disabled list when they signed him last winter.

Free-agent pitcher Steve Ontiveros said Thursday he's "leaning toward signing with the Angels," and the right-hander is expected to announce his decision today. "They fixed their proposal [Thursday] and I like the offer," said Ontiveros, a 1995 American League All-Star who went 9-6 with a 4.37 earned-run average for the Oakland Athletics last season. "I have to weigh it against the other offers, but the Angels stand a good chance. There's a lot I like about their situation."

The Angels signed free-agent pitcher Steve Ontiveros Friday night, ending their search for a right-handed starter to bolster a rotation dominated by left-handers. Ontiveros, an all-star in 1995 and the American League earned-run average leader in '94 for the Oakland Athletics, signed a one-year deal with a base salary of about $200,000 with an option on 1997. His earnings could increase greatly if he meets a number of incentive clauses in the contract.

Because of weak pitching, the Philadelphia Phillies were expected to have difficulties this season. Last season, the staff had an earned-run average of 4.14, and two of the best from that group, Shane Rawley and Kevin Gross, are no longer on the team. The new season is only a week old, but there are signs the pitching may be better than anticipated. So far, Steve Ontiveros has been a big surprise. Ontiveros pitched seven shutout innings and drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double Tuesday night at Philadelphia to lead the Phillies to a 6-2 victory over the Montreal Expos.

Yo, Bill Bavasi and Tony Tavares. Do you know what Greg Maddux, Mike Mussina, Randy Johnson and I have in common with Allen Watson, Mark Gubicza and Steve Ontiveros? None of us ever won a game for the Angels either. RICHARD A. FOND Los Angeles
