Ken Howell, who last pitched on Aug. 5 and will not pitch for the rest of the season, should be ready to pitch by next year's spring training, the Phillies' physician, Phillip Marone, said yesterday. Marone performed exploratory arthroscopic surgery on Howell yesterday afternoon and said he discovered that Howell had no tear of his rotator cuff muscle, which had been the Phillies' worst fear. "The shoulder is close to pristine," he said. Marone said the big righthander was "extremely happy" to hear the news but probably would not remember it when he wakes up today, since he was groggy from the surgery.

When Eagles guard Joe Panos first learned he had a slight tear in his left rotator cuff, he decided to deal with the pain, play as hard as he could for as long as he could, and cross his fingers it would not worsen. Crossed fingers and wearing a special shoulder harness didn't work. Panos, one of the Birds' top run blockers, is being shut down for the remainder of the season after an examination by Dr. John Fenlin, a shoulder specialist, yesterday revealed the tear had grown.

The shoulder is one impressive joint. It has a range of motion greater than any other joint in the entire body. Except when things go wrong. Age, injury, arthritis - they all can spell problems that begin with pain and end with a patient not even being able to lift an arm above the shoulder. Although the number of shoulder replacements nationwide falls far behind those of hip and knee replacements, about 53,000 people a year get them, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Catcher Eddie Perez, a key member of the Atlanta Braves' bench and most valuable player of last year's National League championship series, learned yesterday that he has a torn rotator cuff and is likely out for the season. Perez, who has been bothered by a sore right shoulder since spring training, hoped to make it through the season before undergoing surgery. But the pain became too much to bear, so he will undergo the operation Monday. In another injury-related move, the Braves placed shortstop Walt Weiss on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Thursday.

Major League Baseball umpire Tim Welke is calling it a career after 33 seasons. Welke told The Associated Press that he had one knee replacement surgery in January and would have another in June. The 58-year-old Welke worked the World Series four times and was the plate umpire for last year's All-Star Game. Welke handled more than 4,200 games in the regular season, almost half of them as a crew chief. For a couple of years, that crew included his brother, Bill. Managers, players and fellow umpires often praised Welke for his even-tempered demeanor and ability to control a game without letting emotions escalate.

Lefthander Denny Neagle was expected to be the ace of the Cincinnati Reds' staff this season. Instead he is 0-3 with an 8.17 ERA in six starts. Consequently, Neagle was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday, retroactive to May 20, with what general manager Jim Bowden said was tendinitis in his left shoulder. "The medical information we have been provided is not consistent with our baseball evaluation," Bowden said. "Therefore, we have asked for additional medical opinions and evaluations of Denny's left shoulder.

Reports of Ray Lankford's demise were way off. Less than two weeks ago the St. Louis centerfielder tore the rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder.

Curt Schilling turned up in the Phillies' clubhouse yesterday with his right arm in a sling and a thick stack of business cards in his pocket. Schilling distributed the cards - for Craig D. Morgan of Wilmington - to reporters. Any questions about his shoulder, Schilling said, should be directed to the doctor. "All information needs to be verified by the man who was actually inside my shoulder," Schilling said. After he performed an arthroscopic procedure on Schilling's right shoulder Wednesday, Morgan reported the results to Phillip Marone, the Phillies' team physician.

Pedro Martinez has a minor tear in his rotator cuff and last night criticized Boston general manager Dan Duquette for saying he was healthy. "What I don't appreciate is Duquette saying I'm healthy, because it is not true," Martinez said before a game against Cleveland. "I'm doing the best that I can to help the team, but I'm not 100 percent. " Martinez said that Red Sox team physician Bill Morgan told him he has thinning of the rotator cuff but that Anaheim team physician Lewis Yocum told him there was a minor tear.

Phillies righthander Michael Stutes isn't about to get carried away by his impressive start since being called up from triple-A Lehigh Valley on May 23. Stutes pitched two scoreless innings in Monday's 5-4 win over the Washington Nationals, lowering his earned run average to 1.32. In 11 relief appearances, Stutes is 2-0 and has struck out six and walked two in 132/3 innings. He is trying to keep his quick start in perspective. "It's early in the season and you don't really look at the numbers," Stutes said before Tuesday's game.

Roy Halladay's trip down rehab road has officially started after Wednesday's surgery in Los Angeles went as well as could be expected, according to Phillies team physician Michael Ciccotti. Neal ElAttrache, the team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers, repaired Halladay's shoulder and rotator cuff in an arthroscopic procedure. ElAttrache also removed the bursa that cushions the shoulder. A bone spur that was found in Halladay's shoulder did not need to be removed. "The major attachment sites of the rotator cuff - the cable, we call it - in the front and the back, they were still attached," Ciccotti said during a news conference Thursday at Citizens Bank Park.

SAN FRANCISCO - The first positive sign came on Tuesday night, when Roy Halladay checked back into the clubhouse at AT&T Park and was wearing his regular Phillies workout gear following the team's win over the Giants. He didn't look like a guy preparing a retirement speech. The next came about 12 hours later, when an upbeat Halladay wore both his game uniform and an ear-to-ear grin as he greeted reporters a couple of hours before his scheduled news conference. "Are you guys going to grill me?"

SAN FRANCISCO - Roy Halladay slouched on a couch Wednesday morning and kept a large cup of coffee at his side while the rest of the Phillies clubhouse stirred before another day of baseball. He watched Atlanta against Cincinnati on TV. They played the game to which he has dedicated his life. A surgeon will soon cut a small incision in Halladay's right shoulder, and it will be months before he can pitch again. Still, he smiled Wednesday. He vowed that it would take more to pry baseball from his prized but defective arm. "I have no regrets at any point in my career," Halladay said.

Life is like a novel. You never know when you're gonna get a plot twist. And you hope the ending is happy, and not a surprise. I learned this last week, though I have been writing novels for 20 years now. I might be slow on the uptake. We begin with some background, which adds irony, always a good thing in a book. In my old broke days, when I was trying to become a writer, I spent five years being rejected before anybody published me. Like I said, slow on the uptake.

There was a meeting before Charlie Manuel benched Shane Victorino. It happened Thursday night after a Phillies loss. Victorino had started 70 of the team's first 71 games, and in his last one he popped out in the eighth inning to strand the potential tying run on second base. He was booed as an ordinary season slogged to another day - until Manuel told him he would not be a part of Friday's action. "There was no apparent reason," Victorino said. The manager was more revealing.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Deon Grant says that he's no duck. That he's no dummy. Apparently, he just hopes that commissioner Roger Goodell is. Grant and rookie linebacker Jacquian Williams simultaneously, and absurdly, collapsed with injuries near the end of a Rams no-huddle drive late in the first quarter Monday night. The Rams claimed it was an attempt to stall their momentum. It looked like elementary-school acting, but it worked. The Rams' drive stalled. The Rams' complaint to the league office resulted in a toothless league-wide memo that acknowledged that no rule exists against faking injuries.
