Cito Gaston will stay on as Toronto manager for the 1992 season, the Blue Jays announced yesterday.
Gaston managed Toronto to its second American League East title in three years, but again the team was beaten in the playoffs. He took over the club in May 1989 and has the best managerial record in Blue Jays history -- 235-182, a .564 percentage.
Gaston missed 33 days of the 1991 season with back ailments.
* ANGELS: California will not exercise the 1992 option for pitcher Jeff Robinson, 30, who had a 0-3 record and a 5.37 ERA last season.
The Angels also announced that they have waived infielder Kent Anderson and catcher Barry Lyons.
* PIRATES: Richard Andersen, vice president of administration and operations since 1986, will follow former team president Carl Barger to the expansion Florida Marlins. Andersen, 38, will be vice president of business operations with the Marlins. Barger was appointed as the Marlins' president last summer.
* The son of former Phillies relief pitcher Tug McGraw was ordered to stand trial on charges of raping a Temple University student.
Municipal Court Judge Lydia Kirkland threw out charges of false imprisonment and unlawful restraint against Mark McGraw, 20, but scheduled a Nov. 14 arraignment on charges of rape, indecent exposure, indecent assault and simple assault.
