SARASOTA, Fla. --  Dylan Bundy 's recovery from Tommy John surgery is going well. He will throw from 150 feet today as part of his throwing progression. He's been throwing from that distance for a week now, but today he will add 15 to 20 throws from 90 feet for the first time. Asked if his rehab is going as well as he hoped, Bundy said, “it feels good.” “I don't know what is not as good as you hope, but it's going good,” Bundy said. “It feels good to throw.

Quote: "I had to get out of New York because I wasn't playing. This is like a gift. I'm ecstatic now. Hey, I'm doing the Macarena." - Bobby Bonilla, now playing regularly for the division-leading Braves, while the Mets pick up his salary It's a fact: . Eight of the Phillies' nine opponents this season have been above .500. Who's hot: The Mets' Mike Hampton, who walked 36 batters in his first 38 2/3 innings, has allowed only two walks in his past 23 1/3 innings. Who's not: The Pirates haven't been above .500 all season.

PHOENIX -- Like every other organization, the Orioles will lose at least two players in today's expansion draft that serves as an incubator for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Devil Rays.At the same time, general manager Pat Gillick may be prepared to trade for Florida Marlins left-hander Al Leiter amid an anticipated flurry of deals after the draft.A deal likely would hinge on either expansion team drafting Leiter, then dealing him to the Orioles for a package of players. While Gillick acknowledges talks involving Leiter, he downplayed the possibility of anything imminent.

CLEVELAND -- It will take more than a bad hamstring and falling temperatures for Florida's Bobby Bonilla to be his club's designated hitter in the World Series.Bonilla appeared to be bothered by the strained hamstring several times in Game 2 on Sunday, grabbing at the back of his leg during at-bats and running cautiously. But Marlins manager Jim Leyland said the former Oriole wouldn't DH tonight in Game 3."It's important to have your best team out there," Leyland said, "and Bobby Bonilla is part of our best team.

MIAMI -- Viva, Livan.That was the rallying cry over South Florida today after rookie Livan Hernandez provided the rescue needed by the Florida Marlins' beleaguered pitching staff.The rookie who defected from the Cuban national team out-dueled Greg Maddux with a three-hitter and the Marlins regained the lead in the National League Championship Series with a 2-1 victory over the defending champion Atlanta Braves.With the aid of the liberal strike zone of plate umpire Eric Gregg, Hernandez struck out a career-high 15 Braves and equaled the LCS record.

The day he became manager of the Orioles, Davey Johnson said the team was going to win, and it won, making the playoffs, something the Orioles hadn't accomplished since 1983.But as easy as Johnson made winning sound, with his self-assured prediction, winning with the Orioles was hard. Very hard, a crisis a month, at least, from Bobby Bonilla's nearly allergic reaction to the designated hitter, to the players' distaste for how Johnson occasionally criticized them to reporters.Johnson learned about the American League and its tendency toward double-digit scores.

On the field: The Orioles grounded into three double plays Friday and two last night, one by Bobby Bonilla and one by Chris Hoiles, to bring the Mariners' total to an American League-low 94. The Mariners need four to tie California.In the dugout: Manager Phil Regan made a gutsy call bringing in Jesse Orosco with the bases loaded to face Ken Griffey in the eighth. Griffey was .429 (6-for-14) against Orosco. But Orosco struck him out.In the clubhouse: Regan has been fielding questions about which players will be in winter ball and what Armando Benitez's role will be next season, signs that the club is out of contention.

That's twice Pat Gillick has goaded the Yankees into awarding stupid contracts to undeserving pitchers. A year ago, the Yankees countered the David Wells trade by signing Kenny Rogers. Yesterday, they countered the Jimmy Key signing by overpaying Wells.The defending world champions are now locked into the two veteran left-handers for more than $28 million over the next three years -- more than $28 million for a dynamic duo that was a combined 23-22 with a 4.93 ERA last season.Indeed, the perception that the two AL East powers are engaging in a year-round bidding war is a myth.
