Blue Jays to keep Gaston as manager HHC

October 25, 1991

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.

* YANKEES: Managing general partner Robert Nederlander denied reports that the team planned to become more frugal and said the club would pursue free agents this winter. Several published reports have said the Yankees would pass up potentially expensive free agents such as Bobby Bonilla and that the team was heading toward an economic downswing.

* 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.
