LOS ANGELES - Renowned orthopedic surgeon Lewis Yocum, 65, who extended the careers of many big-leaguers by repairing injuries that once would have ended their playing days, has died. Dr. Yocum had been the team orthopedist of the Los Angeles Angels for 36 years. Team spokesman Tim Mead said Tuesday that Dr. Yocum died Saturday in Manhattan Beach, Calif. A protege of Frank Jobe, who pioneered the elbow ligament replacement surgery popularly known as Tommy John surgery in 1974, Dr. Yocum worked on the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmerman, the Twins' Francisco Liriano, the Mets Billy Wagner, and the Rangers' C.J. Wilson, among others.

For those scoring at home, the Cleveland Indians pulled off the rarest triple play in baseball history late Tuesday night, 7-2-4, assisted by two instant-replay reviews. In the bottom of the fourth inning of the Indians' 10-4 rout of the Dodgers, Los Angeles had runners on first and third when Adrian Gonzalez slashed a liner to left field. The Indians' Michael Brantley raced in to make the catch, took two strides, and fired home to nail Dee Gordon tagging up from third. As catcher Yan Gomes showed plate umpire Adrian Johnson the ball, the Dodgers' always-aggressive Yasiel Puig took off for second.

BALTIMORE - Mike Trout leaped high at the wall to snatch an apparent home run in the 10th inning. He made a shoestring catch and threw out the potential go-ahead runner with a 200-foot strike to home plate in the 11th inning. But his most remarkable feat on Wednesday night in Southern California - although he accomplished it with typical big-league, superstar aplomb - might have been making the red-eye flight home to the East Coast to spend Thursday in his hometown of Millville.

Los Angeles Angels centerfielder Mike Trout, the 2012 American League rookie of the year and runner-up to Miguel Cabrera in the MVP race, weighed a reported 241 pounds upon arrival at spring training - about 10 to 15 pounds heavier than last season. According to a report on ESPN.com, the increased bulk has earned the star from Millville, N.J., some jibes on Twitter and sparked some concern among fantasy owners that his speed game might suffer as a result. It has also been a topic of discussion among bloggers and sports talk radio callers in Southern California.

A question mark coming into the season for the Los Angeles Angels was pitching, but who could have imagined there'd be a problem with No. 1 starter Jered Weaver? The righthander was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of his left synovial hinge (that's what fans without medical degrees call a broken elbow) and is expected to miss at least a month. He left Sunday's game against the Rangers after landing on his arm trying to dodge a line drive. Ex-Phillie Joe Blanton, acquired in the offseason, may have to put down the doughnuts and pick up a few more innings.

CINCINNATI - Chris Iannetta hit a solo homer and a bases-loaded single in the 13th inning on Monday, powering the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the majors' first interleague season opener. Both teams emptied their benches and bullpens before Iannetta - who caught all 13 innings - finally provided the breakout hit. The Angels loaded the bases with two outs in the 13th off J.J. Hoover, who walked two and hit Hank Conger, the Angels' final position player.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick threw out the ceremonial first pitch Friday before the Giants lost, 6-3, to the Marlins. He didn't stand on ceremony. Kaepernick, once drafted by the Cubs, zipped it in at 87 m.p.h. (Who knew they put the radar gun on the ceremonial first pitch?) Eagles and Phillies fans can be forgiven for daydreaming about combining on an offer for a player who could light up the Linc and the Bank. Phenom watch. The Pirates' Gerrit Cole (3-0)

AMERICAN LEAGUE Most Valuable Player Mike Trout, of the Los Angeles Angels, a native of Millville, N.J., will be honored as the Outstanding Pro Athlete of the Year by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association at its 111th annual banquet on Jan. 16 at Cherry Hill's Crowne Plaza Hotel. Trout, who has not yet confirmed his attendance, also won the award 2 years ago after he was named the AL's Rookie of the Year. The 23-year-old, who became the youngest unanimous MVP pick in major league history, was a huge crowd favorite in May when he played here against the Phillies.

  Mo'ne Davis entered Friday's game to considerable hype. Her dominant performance on the pitcher's mound justified the attention. After firing a shutout, Davis was the talk of Twitter Friday afternoon. Her name was trending on the site in Philadelphia, and one social media tracking site, TwazzUp, said Friday night that more than 4,000 tweets per hour mentioned her.

BEN REVERE had been back in town from spring training for only a few days and was about to take the field for pregame batting practice on Opening Day when a reporter told him he was on the trade block. "Right before the first pitch," Revere recalled Wednesday afternoon. "I'm like, damn. OK. But that's the way it is. It happens to everybody. " Revere, 27, already has been traded once (by Minnesota to the Phils, for today's opposing starter, Vance Worley) and understands the sport he plays is also a business.

MIKE TROUT'S ascension from promising prospect to multitalented major league All-Star to the game's greatest current player took all of about 12 months. And the Millville Meteor's meteoric rise happened nearly 2 1/2 years ago. But baseball's award voters and the public relations machine that was The Official Retirement of Derek Jeter Throughout All of Major League Baseball meant Trout apparently had to wait his turn for validation. All Trout did in his first two full seasons was hit .324 with a 976 OPS, hit 57 home runs, steal 82 bases and score 238 runs.

Two of the worst pitching staffs in baseball jettisoned Jerome Williams this season, but the veteran righthander has found a new home with the pitching-starved Phillies. On Sunday, they claimed Williams off waivers from Texas. The 32-year-old Hawaiian is expected to start Tuesday against one of his other former teams, the Los Angeles Angels. Sean O'Sullivan, the scheduled Tuesday starter, was designated for assignment to clear space for Williams. "We needed another arm," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, "and he's a guy who has pitched in the big leagues, so we want to take a look at him. " Williams made two starts for the Rangers and allowed 11 runs in 10 innings (a 9.90 ERA)

Ryne Sandberg knows he has some issues with his outfield. The Phillies manager is trying to address the one in left field right now. Domonic Brown entered play Thursday with the lowest batting average (.217), slugging percentage (.322), and OPS (.593) among all leftfielders in baseball who have enough at-bats to qualify for a batting title. Brown also had a spot on Sandberg's bench Thursday for the second time in three games after misjudging a fourth-inning fly ball that led to three Miami runs in a 3-2 loss Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park.

PITCHER Joey Gatto ST. AUGUSTINE When Gatto took the mound this season, more than two dozen major-league scouts gathered behind the backstop to chart his every pitch. Gatto embraced that pressure, according to St. Augustine coach Mike Bylone. Gatto went 7-1 with a 0.94 ERA, and St. Augustine won the Cape-Atlantic League American Division title as well as the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. Gatto was at his best late in the season. In his last four outings, he was 4-0 with a 0.25 ERA, 28 strikeouts, and three walks.

Joey Gatto remembers the first time he saw Mike Trout on a baseball field. It was a Millville at Hammonton game in the Cape Atlantic League's American Division in 2009. "He hit a home run over the center-field fence," said Gatto, who lives in Hammonton. "I've been following his career ever since. " Gatto now hopes to follow in Trout's footsteps. Gatto, who just finished his senior year at St. Augustine Prep, on Thursday night was drafted by Trout's major-league team, the Los Angeles Angels.
