Padre right fielder Tony Gwynn on Monday underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, in which doctors discovered torn meniscus cartliage. Dr. Jan Fronek, who performed the surgery, said there was less damage than anticipated. Gwynn is scheduled to begin rehabilitation today, and is expected to be fully recovered by spring training. It was almost the identical injury of a year ago, Fronek said.

It was a dream matchup: Sandy Koufax vs. Don Drysdale. The annual old-timers' game Sunday at Dodger Stadium honored the 1963 and 1965 teams, both of which won the World Series. The two pitching immortals starred on both teams. Sunday they opposed each other in the three-inning game that preceded the regularly scheduled game between the Chicago Cubs and the Dodgers, they opposed each other. A majority of the crowd of 40,922 arrived early to enjoy a bit of nostalgia.

Before a couple of old-timers named Don Sutton and Phil Niekro set out to duel on the pitcher's mound Saturday night, a group of former Angels played a team of former major league all-stars to a 2-2 tie in the Angels' annual old-timers' game. Ken McMullen, who played third base for the Angels from 1970 to 1972, hit a two-run home run off Bob Gibson, striking the screen on the left-field foul pole.

True confession: I still haven't recovered from the Angels' release of Jose Canseco, if only because of the opportunity lost. This coldhearted move broke the time-honored continuum of aging stars dragging body parts into Anaheim to take last cuts, cut last checks and foster friendships with team trainers. The Angels have been to impending baseball retirement what Palm Springs is to the elderly. The team's limb-lease program has helped produce the most out-of-whack glossaries in hardball history.

The Dodgers are close to naming a new play-by-play announcer and two new radio and television commentators. Charley Steiner, formerly of ESPN and a New York Yankee radio announcer for the last three years, is a possible replacement for Ross Porter, whose contract was not renewed. Former Dodger second baseman Steve Sax has emerged as a candidate for one of the commentating jobs. "Charley Steiner is one of the people we have looked at," Dodger executive vice president Lon Rosen said late Thursday.

Bobby Bragan, a 1940s Brooklyn Dodger who became known as a colorful manager in the big leagues and in the minors, died Thursday at his Fort Worth home. He was 92. The Alabama native spent parts of seven seasons between 1940 and 1948 with the Philadelphia Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers, playing mostly shortstop and catcher and batting .240 for his career. He missed the 1945 and 1946 seasons to serve in the U.S. military. In 1947, he made his only plate appearance in a World Series game, delivering a pinch-hit double for the Dodgers against the New York Yankees.
