Notable AMERICAN LEAGUE

April 24, 1996

Angels: Reliever Lee Smith, the majors' career saves leader, was activated from the 15-day disabled list and reliever Todd Frohwirth was designated for assignment.

Athletics: The attendance was 7,026, an increase of just over 1,000 from Monday night's crowd, which was the smallest at the Coliseum in 10 years.

Brewers: Ben McDonald's shoulder injury is not serious, allowing him to remain in the starting rotation. Team doctor Dennis Sullivan said McDonald has a slight shoulder inflammation, a condition that should be monitored.

Red Sox: Boston did not make an error for the second straight game. Boston entered the game with a league-leading 24 errors.

Royals: Jose Offerman made the first start of his five-year major-league career at first base. Offerman, a shortstop who led the majors with 35 errors last year with the Dodgers, handled every chance flawlessly.

Twins: Minnesota put Rick Aguilera back on the 15-day disabled list after one start because of a flare-up of the tendinitis that kept him out the first three weeks of the season.

White Sox: Harold Baines has 29 homers against Texas and Toronto, his highest totals against all teams.
