The New York Yankees are moving All-Star second baseman Steve Sax to third and replacing him at second with rookie Pat Kelly. Sax will be the fifth player the Yankees have tried at third base this season. Mike Blowers, Jim Leyritz, Randy Velarde and Torey Lovullo were all given a shot with no success.
* ANGELS: California president Richard Brown said the club is having "very cordial and very productive" talks with Fernando Valenzuela's agents, but Brown declined to assess the likelihood of the Angels' signing the former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher.
* METS: Veteran second baseman Tom Herr, who has been told he'll no longer be a regular after Kevin Elster is activated from the disabled list today, held a closed-door meeting with general manager Frank Cashen in an attempt to clarify his future with the team. Cashen came out of the meeting saying only that he felt Herr was having difficulty adjusting to the prospect of life as a bench player.
