CINCINNATI (AP) -- Ken Griffey Jr., who has been unable to do anything
but pinch hit because of a hamstring injury, was placed on the 15-day
disabled list Sunday.

The Cincinnati Reds finally made the move prior to Sunday's game at
Colorado. But they don't plan to make a corresponding roster move
until Tuesday, when they open a series at home against the Los Angeles
Dodgers.

That is when Deion Sanders becomes eligible for promotion from
Triple-A Louisville. Sanders, 33, has not played in the major leagues
since 1997, when he quit baseball to concentrate on playing cornerback
for the Dallas Cowboys and then the Washington Redskins.

But Sanders' baseball prospects blossomed this spring, and he leads
the International League in batting at .463.

Griffey, who suffered a partial tear of his left hamstring in spring
training, has appeared in 16 games as a pinch hitter. He was 0-for-12,
with three walks and one hit batsman.
------

Sanders will play centerfield and bat second behind Larkin against the
Dodgers Tuesday night. If Deion continues his hot streak, he will be a
disruptive force in the lineup. This is gonna rock.

Cheers,
--Jeff

    Shouldn't it be "and one hit by pitch?" "Hit batsman" is a pitcher's
category, no?

Yes.  The correct offensive category is "leg before wicket".

(Snip)

What was it you were saying about Junior hitting homeruns, and me saying
that he wouldn't bat over .250 again before the season started again?

You misplet "Nomar Garciaparrot sat in the clubhouse not earning his
paycheck, on the phone with his girlfriend Jaromir Jagr, gathering
advice on how to fake injuries."
