Outfielder Darnell McDonald, his injured right shoulder still not responding to extended rest, will undergo arthroscopic surgery this week and further delay his return to Triple-A Ottawa's lineup. As if the former No. 1 draft pick needed another disappointment. Just when he seemed on the brink of joining the Orioles, his season could be ending much too soon, or at least put on hold for much longer than first anticipated. A magnetic resonance imaging test didn't reveal any structural damage, but the Orioles have arranged for an exploratory procedure after more conservative treatments failed to reduce the inflammation.

In addition to his research in arthroscopic surgery, which led to his publication in 1971 of the first paper on the topic, he trained many of the first generation of orthopedists to use the minimally invasive surgical technique. He also helped establish its use at Johns Hopkins, Yale, Massachusetts General, and Brigham and Women's hospitals.

Center Mike Flynn will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and miss the next two to four weeks. Casey Rabach replaced Flynn in practice yesterday and will start tonight's intrasquad scrimmage at Bair Stadium. Flynn could have played through the injury but decided to have the surgery since the timetable will allow him to be ready for the season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7.
