Baltimore Orioles outfielder Eric Davis will have a mass removed from his abdomen later this week and will be sidelined for eight weeks, the club announced last night. Davis, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 31, will undergo a laparotomy Friday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The 35-year-old outfielder last played at Cleveland on May 25. Signed as a free agent during the off-season after playing last year in Cincinnati, Davis was batting .302 with seven homers and 21 RBIs when he went on the DL. Cincinnati Reds closer Jeff Brantley will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his injured right shoulder tomorrow, the team said.

Flyers winger Mikael Renberg, hoping to ensure he is at full strength for training camp in September, was to undergo surgery today in Worcester, Mass., to repair the abdominal injury that has bothered him since Jan. 22. The team issued a statement saying Renberg's 1996-97 season shouldn't be affected, but confirming he will miss the 1996 World Cup of Hockey Tournament, to be played in August and September. He would have been a key player for Team Sweden. "The doctors have told us that the surgery should correct the pain Mikael has felt in his abdomen since this problem first arose," Flyers president and general manager Bob Clarke said in a statement released by the team.

PITTSBURGH - Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn will have abdominal surgery on Thursday but will be ready for the start of training camp, general manager Ron Hextall announced Wednesday before the game in Pittsburgh. Hextall said Schenn, who missed the last four games, had an injury similar to that of R.J. Umberger, who recently underwent an abdominal procedure. Umberger also had hip surgery. Schenn does not have a hip problem. The Flyers have a glaring need for a No. 1 defenseman, but because of salary-cap problems, Hextall said that player would have to come from within the organization.

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Jimmy Smith, out of the hospital after abdominal surgery, plans to play this season. "I'm suiting up next fall," Smith told the Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville after being released this weekend after 19 days in two hospitals. The 32-year-old player had two operations in early April to repair scar tissue and remove an obstruction to his small intestine. Those were remnants of intestinal surgery and an appendectomy he had in 1993. He was readmitted to the hospital April 28 and the Jaguars said it was because his recovery had been slower than expected.

Adolor Corp. in Exton is working on a promising drug compound that blocks the ill effects of painkillers on the digestive system and speeds bowel recovery after abdominal surgery. A study published in the current issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that patients who got the experimental drug, called ADL 8-2698, left the hospital a day sooner and had fewer unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting. An editorial in the prestigious periodical said a one-day reduction in hospital stays after abdominal surgery "would have substantial clinical and financial benefits.

Danny Briere is a quick healer. Just two weeks after abdominal surgery, the Flyers center will return to play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Wachovia Center. Doctors had said Briere would miss three to four weeks. "It's reacted well, and I'm ready to go," he said after yesterday's practice in Voorhees. "The doctor said there's no danger, and that it's all about the way I can handle it and how I feel. " "He'll be a welcome addition," coach John Stevens said.

The Flyers signed speedy left winger/center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, a native of Paris, to an NHL contract on Wednesday. "He's a versatile player who can kill penalties and he adds depth to our forward group," general manager Ron Hextall said. The 6-foot, 196-pound Bellemare, 29, scored the shootout winner in an upset of Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Championships, where he had eight points in eight games. In 52 games last season with Skelleftea of the Swedish Hockey League, Bellemare scored 20 goals and had 35 points and a plus-21 rating.

Towering Sam Morin has had a tough offseason. First, he underwent hip and abdominal surgery, and then he battled strep throat, forcing him to miss the first two days of the Flyers' development camp. But the 6-foot-7, 227-pound defenseman was on the ice for drills Saturday during Day 3 of camp in Voorhees. "It was my first time out there in two months since my surgery," said Morin, a first-round draft pick in 2013, "so I was feeling a little tired in the beginning, but I was pretty happy to finish the practice.

In just a few hours, the Pittsburgh Penguins went from being at their healthiest to being banged up and searching for answers again. Jaromir Jagr returned from a three-game absence to play just a little more than one period in a 4-1 loss at Detroit Thursday night. He could miss at least two weeks after reinjuring his groin. Defensemen Fredrik Olausson and Jason Woolley suffered similar injuries and will at least miss today's game at New Jersey. Forwards Ron Francis and Alex Hicks got through the Red Wings game with no apparent problems from their groin injuries.

If the first few practices are an indicator, new Flyers coach Peter Laviolette will be more of a taskmaster than his predecessor, John Stevens. Laviolette, partly as punishment for the Flyers' nine penalties in a 6-2 win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday, had his players doing extra skating drills during yesterday's grueling practice in Voorhees. The coach wants the players to be accountable for their actions. "I think it's important that we're in check with our game," Laviolette said.

The first day of the Flyers' rookie camp was held Monday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, but the bigger news was the way veteran winger R.J. Umberger skated on the other sheet of ice. Umberger, coming off the worst season of his career, skated effortlessly and had no ill effects from hip and abdominal surgery. "I feel like a different person," said Umberger, one of many veterans on the ice in advance of Friday's official camp opening for vets. "It's refreshing. It was a great offseason for me to get healthy.

Returning from an August medical appointment for knee surgery, I was hit by an All City Taxi cab in Center City. My attorney soon learned that the cabbie's insurance carrier is in liquidation. Perhaps it is wise to ask a taxi driver to show proof of insurance before getting in. |Michael Fill, Philadelphia, poconopadre@aol.com ISSUE | PROTESTS Root causes A recent letter writer asserts that violent protests contradict the Rev.

IT'S OFFICIAL - the 2013 Eagles offensive line, the bellweather of that NFC East championship team, will not play one game together in 2014.

WASHINGTON - Has it come to this? After Friday night's 102-96 win over the woebegone Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center, Kobe Bryant couldn't contain his excitement. "I actually am happy to win one damn game," the Los Angeles Lakers superstar said, laughing. And he wasn't kidding. That win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Lakers, who take a 10-14 record into the Wells Fargo Center to face the 76ers at 6 p.m. Sunday. A team that won back-to-back NBA titles as recently as 2009 and 2010 was happy for a win over a Wizards team that has played all year without injured guard John Wall and fell to 3-17 heading into Saturday's game at Miami.

NEW HOUSTON manager Bo Porter inherits a team that has been the worst in baseball the past two seasons. But he remembers the excitement in the city just a few years ago when Houston went to its only World Series, and is determined to get the Astros back into contention as soon as possible. Turning around a team that lost 100 games in each of the last two seasons won't be easy, but he's confident it can be done. Porter is the former third base coach for the Nationals, who went from losing 93 games in 2010 to a major league-best 98 wins this regular season.

The Red Wings won 14 straight at home in 1965. Detroit's Jimmy Howard made 27 saves for his fifth shutout this season and NHL-high 27th victory.
