Hot corner: AMERICAN LEAGUE

May 13, 1998

Quote: "I feel like they're looking for a reason to keep me down there." -- Right-hander Dwight Gooden on his rehab assignment with the Indians.

It's a fact: Indians starter Charles Nagy has allowed a league-leading 13 homers.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has 48 RBIs in 37 games. The fastest to 50 since 1980, when research data was first available, was the Blue Jays' Joe Carter, who got his 50 in 40 games in 1994.

Who's not: The Red Sox's Brian Rose matched his shortest outing of the season and his career yesterday against the Rangers. He lasted two innings in his first start on April 4 at Seattle.

On deck: One of the best young arms in baseball is in Seattle's organization, where Ryan Anderson opened the year at Single-A Wisconsin, allowing just one earned run in 21 innings and striking out 36.
