DeJesus likely out 1 1/2 years

April 22, 1992

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jose DeJesus underwent shoulder surgery in Los Angeles yesterday for a torn rotator cuff and is expected to be out for at least 18 months, team physician Dr. Phillip Marone said. Arthroscopic surgery revealed a complete tear of the right rotator cuff. DeJesus, a right-hander, also underwent anterior reconstruction of his shoulder, Marone said.

* EXPOS: Montreal is making Pirates catcher Don Slaught play a waiting game. Slaught, who has been disabled with an injury to his right rib cage, was ready to be activated before last night's game. To make room, Pittsburgh has offered pitcher Miguel Batista back to the Expos, but Montreal probably won't decide until tomorrow whether to take him.

Also, Montreal outfielder Darren Reed, who has been on the disabled list since the start of the season, says he really isn't hurt. "Frustrating is not the word," Reed said from Des Moines, Iowa, where was on injury rehabilitation. "I don't know what's going on. I'm fine now. I'm ready to play."

Reed says he has recovered fully from a broken arm suffered in tTC spring training 1991.

* RANGERS: Pitcher Nolan Ryan, originally slated to start tonight at home against the Tigers, won't be activated from the disabled list until Saturday in Boston. Ryan drew the Opening Day start, but was placed on the disabled list the next day with a strained left calf muscle and inflamed right Achilles' tendon.

* REDS: Pitcher Jose Rijo (0-3) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of an inflamed tendon in his right elbow.
