Hideki Irabu, the Japanese-born pitcher who was signed earlier this season to a $12.8 million contract by the Yankees, was sent to the bullpen yesterday. Irabu, who was hit hard in his last three starts, has a 2-2 record and a 7.97 ERA. With Irabu's next start scheduled to fall on Thursday - a day off for the Yankees - manager Joe Torre said the pitcher would be skipped in the rotation. Torre did not say when he would make his next start. The Pirates announced that catcher Jason Kendall had agreed to a new contract that will pay him $7.2 million over four years, beginning next season.

Derek Jeter snapped an 0-for-32 slump with a home run on the first pitch thrown by Barry Zito, Miguel Cairo hit a tiebreaking three-run homer and the New York Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the visiting Oakland Athletics, 7-5, last night. It was Jeter's first hit since an infield single against the Chicago White Sox on April 20. It was the longest slump by a Yankees player since Jimmy Wynn also went 32 at-bats without a hit in 1977. The last major league position player with as long a slump was Mets utilityman Joe McEwing, of Bristol, Pa., who went 0-for-33 in 2002, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Former Yankees great Reggie Jackson is selling the jersey he wore when he hit three home runs against the Dodgers in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, earning him the nickname "Mr. October. " Jackson told Bloomberg Radio earlier this week that he would use the proceeds to make significant donations to family members, as well as his Mr. October Foundation for Kids. With New York up three games to two, Jackson homered on three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers in the 8-4 win at Yankee Stadium.

Vladimir Guerrero agreed to a deal with the Anaheim Angels, contingent on the free-agent outfielder passing a physical. "Guerrero's coming into L.A., and will be undergoing a physical," Angels general manager Bill Stoneman said yesterday, noting that Guerrero is expected in Los Angeles today. The team did not release terms of the deal, but reports in New York and Los Angeles over the weekend said Guerrero would sign a $70 million, 5-year contract. He rejected a 3-year contract offer from the New York Mets on Saturday.

Vladimir Guerrero had such a huge impact during the final week of the season that voting for the American League Most Valuable Player award wasn't even close. Guerrero easily defeated his competitors on the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees yesterday, becoming just the fifth player to switch leagues and earn the honor in his first season with his new team. The Anaheim Angels' rightfielder received 21 of 28 first-place votes and 354 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Andy Pettitte will be happy to leave the baserunning to his teammates in the future. The New York Yankees' nine-game winning streak ended last night when the host Montreal Expos took advantage of Pettitte's sudden exit with a twinge in his hip and rallied for seven runs in the seventh inning for a 7-5 win. "I felt a catch in my left hip," Pettitte said. "I couldn't stretch it out, but I feel nothing now. " Pettitte thought the twinge might have come about when he ran out a sacrifice bunt in the fifth inning.

Anaheim Angels slugger Garret Anderson agreed yesterday to a $48 million, 4-year contract extension through 2008. The deal includes a team option for 2009 with a $3 million buyout.

Willy Aybar broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run double, and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 4-2, last night for their ninth victory in 11 games. The AL East-leading Rays overcame a strong pitching performance by Angels starter Ervin Santana, who took a no-hit bid into the sixth and left with a 2-1 lead after allowing one run and four hits in seven innings. James Shields (11-7) allowed two runs and nine hits in eight innings, and Dan Wheeler pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save in eight chances as Tampa Bay improved to 6-2 against the Angels, including 5-0 at home.

Junior is pressing Since being acquired from the Reds on July 31, Ken Griffey Jr. has been a bust with the White Sox. In his first 40 at-bats with the Sox, Griffey had more strikeouts (10) than hits (nine). Entering last night, he had yet to deliver an extra-base hit and was batting .225 for them. Clearly, the player with 608 career homers - sixth on the all-time list - is pressing in an attempt to help his new teammates. "Sometimes, you try too hard and it backfires," he told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Mike Trout was not supposed to make his Major League debut Friday night for the Los Angeles Angels. He's only 19 years old. But when starting centerfielder Peter Bourjos left Thursday night's victory over Seattle with a pulled right hamstring, the Angels had no fear in promoting Trout, a 2009 graduate of Millville (N.J.) High School, from double-A Arkansas. Can you blame them? The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Trout, who turns 20 on Aug. 7, was hitting .324 with nine home runs, 27 RBIs and 28 stolen bases at Arkansas in the Texas League.

Bartolo Colon looked like the ace of old, shutting down the visiting Chicago White Sox over eight crisp innings, and Robinson Cano hit an early three-run homer to give the New York Yankees a 3-1 victory last night. A pleasant surprise for the Yankees thus far, Colon (2-1) outpitched Mark Buehrle to give him two wins in two starts this season - his first in the majors since 2009. The husky righthander, who won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award for the Angels, signed a minor league deal in February and was brought to spring training to provide pitching depth.

BALTIMORE - For all the hype about the additions the Orioles made to their lineup during the offseason, the most productive player thus far is the one who's worn a Baltimore uniform the longest: leadoff batter Brian Roberts. Roberts hit a three-run homer, Jake Arrieta allowed one run in six innings, and the unbeaten Orioles thrilled a sellout crowd in their home opener by defeating the Detroit Tigers, 5-1, Monday. On a gorgeous afternoon at Camden Yards, Baltimore extended a surprising winning streak that began with a three-game sweep at Tampa Bay. Off to its best start since 1997, the Orioles (4-0)

Painful trot Designated hitter Luke Scott was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday by the Baltimore Orioles, and nobody who saw his agonizing run around the basepaths on Wednesday will be surprised. Scott strained his left hamstring after hitting a key home run in the seventh inning to give the O's a 7-6 lead over the Oakland Athletics. Unsure if the ball was going to go over the fence, Scott twanged the hammy while running hard to first. The ball cleared the wall and Scott completed his journey around the bases with a worsening limp that had him looking like Walter Brennan by the time he reached home.

Hideki Matsui and the Los Angeles Angels agreed to a $6 million, 1-year contract yesterday, bringing the World Series MVP and two-time All-Star to the American League West power. Matsui hit .274 with 28 homers and 90 RBI last season for the New York Yankees, then was selected World Series MVP despite starting only three of the six games against the Phillies.

ANAHEIM - When you get to this stage of a series, nearly anything is possible. You try to detect patterns before realizing the whole deal could change on one pitch. As the teams headed back to New York for tonight's scheduled (rain is in the forecast) Game 6 of the American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees lead, 3-2. New York won Game 1 after the Angels could not catch the ball. The Yankees won Game 4 decisively. The teams split extra-innings wins in Games 2 and 3. And then Los Angeles won Game 5 on Thursday, 7-6, as the Yankees left the bases loaded in the top of the ninth.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - While the Phillies rest and wait for the World Series to begin Wednesday, the two teams hoping to be their opponent have unfinished business. The Los Angeles Angels stayed alive with Thursday night's 7-6 comeback win over the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. Trailing the best-of-seven series three games to two, the Angels face the difficult task of winning two games at Yankee Stadium. No one in either locker room is thinking right now about the Phillies.
