Indians' Nagy To The Bullpen?

Posted: July 14, 1998

Pitcher Charles Nagy, on the heels of signing a $24 million, four-year contract extension, could be headed to the Cleveland Indians' bullpen to get himself straightened out.

Nagy leads the majors with 26 homers allowed. He is more than halfway to breaking Bert Blyleven's major-league record of 50.

In his last outing, on Sunday, Nagy gave up six runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings in an 11-6 loss to Minnesota.

* The New York Yankees were 17-8 at Cleveland's Jacobs Field after last night's loss there.

* The Baltimore Orioles placed pitcher Arthur Rhodes on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 5, with a strained left elbow. The lefthander last pitched July 4, giving up one hit and striking out two in two innings against the New York Yankees. He is 3-3 with three saves and a 3.30 ERA.

* Charlie Manuel, the Indians' hitting coach, underwent successful quadruple-bypass surgery yesterday and was in stable condition, according to the team.
