Personnel Dept.

Angels: RHP Kelvim Escobar will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his elbow, and is expected to be sidelined at least two months.

Athletics: Closer Huston Street, nursing a strained left hamstring, did agility work and might pitch as soon as today.

Indians: OF Juan Gonzalez, on the disabled list with a torn hamstring, has gone home to Puerto Rico to attend to "personal business." He's expected back in Cleveland this week to resume rehab work.

Big Draw

The attendance of 42,521 for the Reds-Indians game was Cleveland's first sellout since Opening Day and the largest crowd at Jacobs Field since July 14, 2002, against the Yankees.
