Floyd Youmans last night was on his way to becoming the fourth Phillies pitcher to land on the disabled list after revealing that he had been hiding a stiff shoulder condition from the club. Youmans flew to Philadelphia for an examination this morning by club physician Phillip Marone, after which the righthander probably will be placed on the 21-day disabled list, joining Steve Ontiveros and Marvin Freeman. Jeff Parrett is on the 15-day DL. When Youmans' DL assignment becomes official, Gordon Dillard will be purchased from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League.

The Phillies began their final road trip before the all-star break with a familiar practice last night. They placed a pitcher on the disabled list. Lefthanded reliever Mark Holzemer became the 10th Phils pitcher to visit the DL. He suffered a strained left hamstring during a brief relief stint Saturday night against Pittsburgh. To fill Holzemer's spot in the bullpen, the Phils purchased the contract of lefthander Ed Vosberg from triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Vosberg, 38, is in his 18th season in professional baseball.

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.

Atlanta Braves closer John Smoltz went on the disabled list yesterday with tendinitis in his right elbow, probably derailing his chances of breaking the single-season save record. Team physician Joe Chandler stressed several times that the condition is not serious, and said Smoltz is not expected to have any lingering effects when he returns Sept. 8. 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.

The Phillies, who are growing accustomed to following each forward step with a step backward, get one of their top hitters back from the disabled list today. But their top pitcher went on the disabled list last night. The Phils placed Ken Howell on the 15-day disabled list because of soreness in his right shoulder, taking away some of the boost the team expected to get from the return of rightfielder Von Hayes to the active roster. Howell's DL stint is retroactive to July 6. The Phils' top winner (8-6, 4.29 ERA)

The Phillies placed centerfielder Lenny Dykstra on the disabled list before last night's game against the Padres. Officially, Dykstra's injury is a pulled muscle on the left side of his ribcage. He injured it during batting practice Thursday in Los Angeles. "It's hard to believe," Dykstra said. "I'm going to spend more time in the trainer's room. What it all boils down to is helping out the ball club. We talked about it and decided this was best. "It's a tender thing.
