It wouldn't seem logical to take the pitcher with the worst winning percentage in the majors the past two seasons--a 35-year-old journeyman who has played for three teams since 1984--and start him for your first-place club in the middle of a pennant race. But Angel Manager Gene Mauch is making an exception to the Ruhle.

Forty-one-year-old Don Sutton will get a chance to add to his career victory total of 310 and, with any amount of luck, Gary Lucas will get another chance to pitch to Rich Gedman.

Bert Blyleven hasn't given up his dream of having his son Todd as an Angel teammate, but the Angel pitcher happily postponed it when Todd decided to accept a scholarship to Cal State Fullerton. Todd Blyleven, 18, pitched for Villa Park High School and was selected by the Angels in the 39th round of last month's free agent amateur draft. He opted to take a college scholarship instead of turning professional, and he did it with his father's blessings.

Pedro Astacio's domestic violence trial reportedly has been delayed, ensuring the Colorado right-hander will not be deported in the middle of the season. Astacio faced possible deportation to the Dominican Republic if convicted July 5. The trial has been delayed until November, Denver's KCNC-TV reported Friday. Astacio initially pleaded guilty to third-degree assault but was allowed to withdraw the plea after immigration officials began deportation proceedings.
