Daulton's Return on Hold

Darren Daulton gave up his rehabilitation assignment with a Philadelphia Phillies farm team after just one game because of pain in both knees.

Daulton pulled out of the Clearwater Phillies game in Florida after five innings Monday, complaining of a swollen right knee and the inability to run without pain.

"He said his right knee was swollen and that he was unable to run," Phillies owner Bill Giles said. "We'll stop his rehab assignment and play the future by ear." . . . Philadelphia placed left-hander Sid Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season because of a sore pitching elbow.

The Pittsburgh Pirates unveiled blueprints for a new ballpark that would seat 35,000 to 37,000 fans and offer a vista of the Allegheny River and a skyline that includes the 65-story USX Tower.

If approved, the grass field would be built in the shadow of Three Rivers Stadium and cost $187 million to $208 million. The team said it would sign a 25-year lease.

Former New York Yankees reliever Steve Howe was released on his own recognizance after his arraignment on a weapons charge. Howe, 38, is due back in court July 8 for a hearing on the third-degree criminal possession of a weapon count. . .
