New York Yankee owner George Steinbrenner said he had talked with Darryl Strawberry's agent, Bill Goodstein, but that a report in the Record of Hackensack, N.J., that a one-year deal was near was premature. Said Goodstein: "I have not an iota of doubt that Strawberry will be signed by the weekend." Strawberry's 60-day suspension for testing positive for cocaine ends June 23. Yankee General Manager Gene Michael said he isn't involved in the talks.
