Hot corner

April 28, 1999

Quote: "I had never hit lefty before, and it felt awkward. It was like throwing a ball left-handed."

Ray Durham of the White Sox, on learning to switch-hit. It's a fact: All 10 of Jose Canseco's homers this season have come as a designated hitter. Last year, the Devil Rays got only 16 homers from the DH position.

Who's hot: The Blue Jays' Darrin Fletcher has 14 RBIs this month, nine more than he had last April, when he went hitless in his first 18 at-bats.

Who's not: The Yankees' Scott Brosius, who is expected to come off the disabled list tomorrow, is hitting .125.

On deck: Rookie Freddy Garcia, 22, goes for his third win tonight as the Mariners take on the Tigers.
