Mike Schmidt became a half-million dollars richer yesterday, and he didn't have to win the lottery to do it. Rather, the windfall resulted from a clause in his contract that said he would receive that sum if he were still on the Phillies' roster on May 15. Seeing his 1989 salary doubled overnight didn't excite Schmidt, who is more concerned these days with the sore left elbow that may have contributed to his being homerless since May 2....

As if the Phoenix Suns didn't have enough trouble already, the prognosis on Charles Barkley's tender right elbow is not cause for optimism. Barkley, the heart, soul and spirit of the Suns, played last night in Game 3 with a large protective wrap on the elbow. At times during the game, he sat on the bench with ice on the elbow. If this series lasts much longer, his effectiveness could be in doubt. Suns team physician Richard Emerson said the elbow was not damaged when Barkley collided in Game 2 with Chicago's Scott Williams, but it was inflamed.

Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham grabbed his throwing elbow as he was helped off the Georgia Dome carpet and we could hear the gasps from Channel 29 viewers all the way down here. "I had a little palpitation," coach Rich Kotite said after the Birds' 20-12 loss to the Falcons. "I went over (to the bench) and I knew immediately it wasn't serious, so I felt a lot better. " Understandably so. Kotite, after all, has had Cunningham for just 20 of his 48 regular-season games as the Birds' head coach.

The huddle included Phillies manager Nick Leyva, general manager Lee Thomas, trainer Jeff Cooper and club physician Dr. Phillip Marone. After a while, the door to Leyva's office opened and righthander Steve Ontiveros was invited to join the group. Then the door closed again. By the time Ontiveros emerged, the best-laid plans once again had been scrambled. Ontiveros, it was announced, would not be activated from the disabled list. He would not pitch Thursday at Dodger Stadium.

Righthander Mark Portugal was told last night that he will have surgery on his right elbow Monday and will miss at least three months. In addition, lefthander Matt Beech was placed on the disabled list. Reliever Ken Ryan was activated, and struggling pitcher Bobby Munoz said he and catcher Mike Lieberthal are friends but "have a communication problem. " And that wasn't all. After their 3-1 win over Colorado, the Phils sent pitcher Scott Ruffcorn (0-0, 4.38 ERA) and infielder Kevin Sefcik (.150)

The diagnosis - bone chips in his right elbow - is in for Glenn Robinson, and the 76ers forward must decide whether to have surgery and possibly miss the remainder of the season, or rest it in the hopes of playing again. Robinson was examined Monday by orthopedist James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. He was given two options: surgery that would sideline him for three to five weeks, or rehabilitation that may get him back sooner. "I'm stuck in between right now," Robinson said last night before the Sixers' game against the Chicago Bulls.

National League MVP Larry Walker of the Colorado Rockies' will undergo arthroscopic surgery on a troublesome right elbow Tuesday in Denver and is expected to miss most of spring training. The team expects the rightfielder to be 100 percent healthy by opening day. Walker felt pain in his elbow after swinging and missing a pitch in the Rockies' 160th game of the season on Sept. 26. Later in that at-bat, Walker belted his 49th homer of the season. He never got a chance for No. 50 as the pain in the elbow prevented him from playing the final two games.

Larry Walker barely had time to dry himself off from a stint in the hot tub when he received the all-too-familiar news. He was returning to the disabled list and could possibly miss the remainder of the season. The Colorado Rockies placed the two-time defending National League batting champion on the 15-day DL yesterday, hoping the time off will help Walker's chronically ailing right elbow. "I came to the ballpark with my game face on, ready to play and now I'm on the DL," Walker said.

Rick Mahorn has been wearing a Sixers uniform less than a week, but he already has begun making waves. The veteran power forward, long known as one of the league's most rugged players, was ejected from last night's 115-91 victory over Miami after elbowing the Heat's feisty 6-9 rookie, Terry Davis, above the shoulder with 9:42 to play in the second quarter. The NBA rules instruct officials to eject anyone throwing an elbow that makes contact above shoulder level. When the dust clears from this one, Mahorn should be shelling out some money for his actions.

An examination of Frank Viola's pitching elbow yesterday revealed signs of small bone spurs, but the New York Mets said he would continue his workouts as scheduled. Anti-inflammatory medication was prescribed for the lefthander, who underwent a magnetic resonance imaging examination. The MRI detected no loose bodies, and the team said he would work out today. Viola reported soreness after throwing Friday in Port St. Lucie, Fla. "The only thing that concerned me is that I've never had problems at all, especially this early," he said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - No, Adam Morgan said, he did not notice that Vince Velasquez and Brett Oberholtzer each tossed three scoreless innings Monday. The decision on who will be the Phillies' fifth starter will not be made on the basis of one or two spring starts, but it cannot hurt to keep pace with the others. That is what Morgan did Tuesday in a 4-2 win over Pittsburgh. "The competition in here is just making everybody else better," Morgan said. "So for them to go out and throw three innings scoreless, that's awesome for them.

Jesse Biddle had just finished getting a haircut at his favorite barber shop in Mount Airy on Friday afternoon when a two-word text message from Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock popped up on his phone. Call me. The pitcher the Phillies selected in the first round of the 2010 draft knew bad news probably awaited him. Still, it jolted him. "Yeah, in a lot of ways it did," Biddle said Sunday during a telephone interview. "I think in the back of my head I was always a little worried about it because this is not a good time to be hurt when the organization is obviously making a lot of moves to get younger by picking up a lot of prospects.

ALLENTOWN - The 19 red seams inked on the inside of Alec Asher's right elbow take the shape of a baseball each time he flexes the arm. Asher had the tattoo done when he was 16. It is the lasting reminder of a promising career that almost ended before it really began. Asher, who will take the mound for the Phillies in his major-league debut on Sunday, had Tommy John surgery when he was 14. The baseball seams cover a surgeon's scar that was once an ugly shade of purple. Asher's elbow burned out at a young age from overuse.

   Maikel Franco stretched with his teammates before batting practice, per usual, Tuesday afternoon and shagged fly balls in the outfield while his fellow position players took their hacks.    But for the first time since his May 15 promotion from triple-A Lehigh Valley, Franco did not play. The Phillies' rookie third baseman was given Tuesday night off after experiencing right elbow soreness late in Monday's win.       He could sit out Wednesday's matinee, too, mostly as a precaution ahead of an off day Thursday.

MAIKEL FRANCO might not return to the Phillies' lineup until they arrive at Wrigley Field on Friday, but at least he isn't destined for the disabled list. A night removed from exiting a game against the Tampa Bay Rays with right elbow soreness, Franco limited his pregame activity yesterday to shagging balls in the outfield during batting practice. Before he took the field, Franco said he felt better and was eager to return to the lineup today, when the Phillies wrap up their homestand with a matinee against Tampa at Citizens Bank Park.

Maikel Franco had never felt something like this, he said. The rookie said he felt "a little bit of pain" in his right elbow. And that little bit proved to be enough for the Phillies to show caution Monday night in a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay. Franco was removed from the game with elbow soreness. Interim manager Pete Mackanin said he thinks Franco hurt his the elbow on a sharp diving catch and throw to end the sixth inning of the Phillies' fourth straight victory. Franco was evaluated after the game.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers' hope was to get out of the Utah Jazz Summer League unscathed, but a late development has prevented that. Second-round draft choice Richaun Holmes took a nasty fall on his elbow in the second half of Thursday's game against the host Jazz. Holmes didn't return to the game, and assistant coach Billy Lange said afterward he was getting X-rays as a precaution. Those X-rays revealed that the Bowling Green product had fractured his right elbow. He probably will be shelved for a couple of months.
