Cecil Fielder of the Detroit Tigers was named AL player of the week for the second time this season and Terry Mulholland of the Philadelphia Phillies was named NL player of the week.

Fielder hit four home runs last week and leads the majors with 39. Mulholland pitched the Phillies' first no-hitter in Philadelphia since Red Donahue in 1898.


Cubs pitcher Shawn Boskie (5-6) had a bone chip removed arthroscopically from his elbow.

Left-hander Lance Dickson, whom the Cubs optioned Sunday to Class AAA Iowa, was hospitalized with an infection below his right knee. A batting practice liner hit the leg last week.


The Mariners demoted left-hander Vance Lovelace to Calgary and brought up Tino Martinez, 22, who was hitting .319 with 92 RBI there. Martinez, who played at the University of Tampa, was the Mariners' No. 1 pick in the 1988 draft. . . .

The Cardinals put cleanup hitter Pedro Guerrero, who has a bad back, on the 15-day DL retroactive to Sunday. Coming up is outfielder Ray Lankford, 23, (.261 with 10 homers and 72 RBI in Louisville). . . .

The Red Sox promoted outfielder Phil Plantier, 21, from Louisville. He hit 10 homers in his last 12 games and his 33 are tops in the minors. He's hitting .252 with 79 RBI. Going on the 15-day DL is shortstop Tim Naehring (.271), who has a bad back.


First baseman Chris Weinke, 18, of St. Paul, Minn., considered one of the nation's best high school football and baseball players, signed with the Blue Jays, 11 days after beginning football practice as a quarterback at Florida State.

"It was tough giving up football, but in the long run baseball is my sport," he said. A bonus of $375,000 helped make up his mind.
