As Tim Harkrider extends his right hand, the ring commemorating a minor league baseball team's championship sparkles in the sunshine. He wears the ring proudly, despite its Angel logo. "I don't hate them," he said. He is, however, suing them. In a lawsuit filed in his home state of Texas, Harkrider, 28, charges the Angels with inferior medical care that prevented him from recovering from an ankle injury, regaining his status as a top prospect and, ultimately, playing in the major leagues.

Second baseman Kevin Flora, in an attempt to revitalize his career, has agreed to play in the Arizona Fall League and will report Sept. 30 to the Tempe Rafters.

Flora, projected to be the Angels' everyday second baseman this season, rejected the club's invitation to play in the fall league last winter while continuing to mourn his wife, who died April 22, 1993.

Right-hander Ramon Ortiz experienced stiffness in his right biceps while warming up for Monday's exhibition game and did not make his scheduled start against the Chicago Cubs. Ortiz, the team's best prospect, was examined by local physician Fred Dicke and will be reexamined today by team physician Lewis Yocum. The preliminary diagnosis was mild tendinitis and Ortiz is tentatively scheduled to throw in the bullpen by the weekend.
