More long needles might be in Lenny Dykstra's future. So might an operation, which would require a lengthy recovery period. But for now, all Dykstra knows for sure is that he has been handed a short- term baseball ban. The Phillies' centerfielder, who continues to suffer lower-back pain, was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 4.

The Baltimore Orioles placed first baseman Will Clark on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with inflammation in his left elbow, the team said. The move is retroactive to Aug. 14, meaning he'll be eligible to be activated to Baltimore's 25-man roster Aug. 29. Clark, who hasn't played since Aug. 13, was also on the disabled list from April 19 through May 24 with a broken right thumb. The 35-year-old Clark is hitting .303 with 10 home runs and 29 runs batted in over 77 games with the Orioles this season.

The Braves recalled lefty Jung Keun Bong from triple-A Richmond. Kansas City Royals pitcher Jose Lima was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin for the second time this season.

Howell's DL stint is retroactive to July 6. The Phils' top winner (8-6, 4.29 ERA)
