Texas arm slinger who has been a free agent since being released by the Chicago White Sox two week:: agn. The White Sox, who did most of their pennant shopping early, made one last-minute purchase, also from the Orioles—righthand- ed pitcher Harry Byrd for a sum "in excess of the waiver price of $10,000." That also was the official description of the price that the Detroit Tigers paid to the Philadelphia Phillies for first baseman Earl Torgeson in the only other late trade. "I think Cleveland made themselves a helluva trade.'' admitted Stengel, whose own last-minute attempts to pick up a pitcher fell through. "I wouldn't be surprised if Woodling' came back and beat us some time. And Cox is wonderful protection." Manager Al Lopez of Cleveland, obviously pleased by this extra help, said that Woodling would take over in left field, a move that makes Ralph Kiner, the Indians' highest-paid player, a sub and pinch-hitter. Lopez figures the brilliant-fielding Cox as "our top utility man at second, short, and third." The St Louis Cardinals, unable to swing any deals, dug into their farm system and called up pitcher Floyd Wooldridge 3-2 at Houston and Mel Wright 1-1 at Houston. They op'.ionecl pitchers Herb Moford to Rochester and Barney Schultz to H.juaton.
