Quick Hits - MLB Stuffage

Yankee Doodle Dandy? Staring pitchers, Mike Mussina and Carl Pavano joined fellow Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang on the disabled list Sunday.

• The Colorado Rockies placed infielder Kazuo Matsui on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of back spasms.

The Cleveland Indians want to honor Larry Doby: Now that baseball has saluted Robinson's 60th anniversary, the Indians have asked Major League Baseball for permission to have their players wear Doby's No. 14 on July 5 in Detroit to commemorate the six decades since he bravely battled prejudice. Team spokesman Bart Swain said while the club awaits word from MLB, it is planning to honor Doby during the team's Hall of Fame weekend at Jacobs Field when the New York Yankees are in town Aug. 10-12.

• Reds’ centerfielder, Ryan Freel agreed to a $7 million, two-year contract extension through the 2009 season with the Cincinnati Reds.

• Los Angeles Angels slugger Vladimir Guerrero left Monday's game against the Red Sox with a bruised right wrist after being hit by a pitch from Boston's Josh Beckett in the first inning. However, X-Rays were negative and it looks to be day-to-day for Vladmir.

• Blue Jays closer B.J. Ryan will miss four to six weeks with an elbow sprain and All-Star third baseman Troy Glaus will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday.

• The Colorado Rockies placed pitcher Byung-Hyun Kim on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a thumb injury and purchased the contract of pitcher Zach McClellan from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

• The Big Unit Closer to Returning: Randy Johnson plans to make one more minor league start before joining the Arizona Diamondbacks' rotation.

Soriano Injured? Alfonso Soriano strained his hamstring and left in the fifth inning of last night’s Cubs game with the San Diego Padres when he attempted a diving catch. Soriano then got up and slipped while attempting a throw. Trainer Mark O'Neal tended to him, and Soriano walked off gingerly under his own power. The initial diagnosis was a strained left hamstring, and the Cubs hoped to know more after an MRI exam on Tuesday.

• Dogders’ ace, Jason Schmidt, underwent an MRI exam on his right arm on Monday, after he has pitched with decreased velocity this season.
