CLEARWATER, Fla. - A day after general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said manager Charlie Manuel had miscategorized a "setback" in Ryan Howard's recovery from Achilles surgery, the Phillies permitted their head athletic trainer to make public remarks regarding Howard. Howard's visit to foot specialist Mark Myerson is scheduled for Monday in Baltimore, and Scott Sheridan said the team planned to send the first baseman for a follow-up visit even before a postsurgical problem surfaced in recent days.

Righthander Tyler Green, the Phillies' No. 1 draft choice two years ago, has suffered another setback. Green, sidelined three previous times by elbow and shoulder problems since signing with the Phillies, was placed on the disabled list at Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with a sore lower back. Green says he was injured pitching in Rochester Saturday because of the difference between the mound in the bullpen and the one he threw off in the game. However, he has not been particularly effective for the Red Barons since being optioned to the minors on April 13. In seven relief appearances covering 13 1/3 innings, he allowed 17 hits and had a 4.05 earned run average.

First baseman Jim Thome, on the disabled list since July 1 with tendinitis in his right elbow, had a setback yesterday and had to curtail his pregame hitting session in Citizens Bank Park's indoor batting cage. Thome was not available to comment, but Phillies manager Charlie Manuel downplayed the setback. "He got a little pain in the elbow, but that's to be expected when you have tendinitis," Manuel said after the Phillies rallied past Washington, 5-4, in 12 innings. "It just means it hasn't completely healed; he didn't think it was a big deal.

Avon Grove coach Carl Benson has a talented boys' track and field team. He knows it; his team knows it. The Devils have won the last two Southern Chester County League titles, and are hoping for a third this season. That is why Benson came away so baffled by the Devils' setback Monday at the Southern Chester County League Relays at Unionville, where they were surprised by the host Indians. He's hoping it can spur his team on to better things the rest of this season. Before it was suspended, the meet began Saturday at Oxford, where Avon Grove started impressively, winning the 4x100 relay (Matt Jones, Ray Jackson, Jason Ward and Robert Saunders)

The Tinicum Township Board of Commissioners has approved a variance for a 50-foot reduction in its rear-setback requirements, a change that the developers said was necessary for the construction of the proposed 130-unit Knights Inn motel in Essington. The developers, Cardinal Industries of Columbus, Ohio, had asked the board to reduce the setback requirement from 100 feet to 50 feet. Cardinal's Jim Sankovich said the setback reduction was "critical," because it was the one variance needed to proceed with the project.

It hasn't taken long for the optimism regarding Cliff Robinson's comeback to turn to pessimism. The 76ers forward, who has been out since December with a splintered left kneecap, had planned to resume practicing with the team yesterday. But his return temporarily was put on hold because of unexpected soreness in his knee. Robinson, who had arthroscopic surgery on the knee Jan. 10, last week worked out with Sixers shooting instructor Bob Salmi and played some one-on- one last Friday with forward Shelton Jones.
