Isringhausen's lung concerns Mets By The Associated Press NEW YORK — New York Mets pitcher Jason Isringhausen underwent additional medical tests Tuesday after chest X-rays found something unusual on his lung. Head trainer Fred Hina said before Tuesday night's game in Cincinnati that the team doesn't know what is wrong with Isringhausen, who ISRINGHAUSEN complained of flu-like symptoms in Florida over the weekend. He was flown to New York for further tests under the direction of team internist Dr. John Olichney. "He's being examined for an irregularity found on a chest X-ray that was taken as part of a diagnostic workup for flu-like symptoms while he was in Florida," Hina said. "He's undergoing a battery of tests to determine what that irregularity is. "At this point, we don't have any definitive information on that. And until we do, it would be unfair for anyone to speculate as to what's going on." Hina said there is no indication when test results might be available. "The club is concerned about the situation," spokesman Jay Horwitz said. The Star-Ledger in Newark, N.J., reported that the team fears the pitcher might be seriously ill because of what doctors have not yet ruled out, including cancer. The 24-year-old right-hander began feeling chest pain last weekend in Florida, where he was rehabilitating a broken right wrist. After experiencing nausea and breathing difficulty, the pitcher went to an emergency room Saturday night. The Associated Press Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, scoring here during Monday's 14-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, has been one of the many contributors to the team's 18-6 start. DOMINANT BRAVES Though the Marlins spent millions improving their club, Atlanta looks to be the team to beat in the NL By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press TLANTA — They heard the whispers. This was going to be the year the Atlanta Braves' dominating run ended. The Florida Marlins spent nearly $100 million to see to that. Well, guess what? The team of the decade looks stronger than ever. The Braves, who already have won a record five straight divisional titles and four NL pennants since 1991, seem primed for another postseason. The offense is faster and more diversified. The pitching hasn't dropped off a bit. And the results are downright awesome. Atlanta has the best mark in baseball (18-6) and a league record for victories in the first month of the season. As for the Marlins, they were four games back and trying desperately not to let the Braves get too far away. "We knew they would be coming after us," Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones said. ' "We knew coming right out of the gate we would have to go. Our guys have not taken anything for granted." There wasn't much outward talk in the clubhouse about the Marlins' off-season spending spree, which landed Alex Fernandez, Bobby Bonilla, Moises Alou and manager Jim Leyland. But rest assured, the Braves took note of those who proclaimed a new era in the NL East. "We've got a lot of pride in what we do," said Tom Glavine, who picked up his fourth win in a 14-0 rout of the Dodgers on Monday night. "Regardless of what anyone else does, we're still going to feel like we're the team to beat.... We seem to • play better when someone gives us a challenge." Glavine figures the Braves are playing every bit as good as they did in second half of the '93 season, when Atlanta went 51-17 after acquiring Fred McGriff and chased down the San Francisco Giants to win the NL West with 104 victories. "We're coming to ballpark every night and we're expecting to win, bottom line, and that's a great feeling," Glavine said. "I don't know if you'd expect that to happen throughout the year. The human element being what it is, we're going to have to go through some tough times as a team." But this Braves team seems much better equipped to cope when the inevitable slump finally hits. The move from homer-friendly Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium to Turner Field has coincided with a makeover of the offense. No longer does Atlanta sit back and wait for extra-base hits. This team will steal bases and take the extra base. The trades for outfielders Kenny Lofton (11 stolen bases) and Michael Tucker have prompted others to step up the pace. It's as if the entire team suddenly abides by the axiom that speed never goes into a slump. The Braves, who ranked last in the NL with 83 stolen bases last season, are fourth this year and on pace to steal 183 bases. Of course, it doesn't hurt that two starters, Lofton and shortstop Jeff Blauser, are hitting above .400, and three others — Tucker, Jones and catcher Javy Lopez — have averages above .300. The Braves' team average was .318 entering Tuesday night, second in the majors to Colorado, and they had outscored their opponents by an astonishing 126-64 margin. "With the makeup of this club the way it is right now, where there's not so much emphasis on power., I would hope if we do struggle a little bit it's not going to be anything that's too prolonged," Glavine said. As for the pitching, nothing new to report there. Atlanta will probably keep its hold on the Cy Young award, which either Glavine, Greg Maddux or John Smoltz has won every year since 1991. Glavine is 4-0 with a 1.64 ERA, Maddux (3-1,1.13) had not allowed an earned run in 29 innings, and defending Cy Young winner Smoltz (2-3, 2.74) is actually the lightweight of the group. Bullpen ace Mark Wohlers has had control problems, but 37-year-old journeyman Mike Bielecki has been one of the most effective setup relievers (1-0,1.50,14 strikeouts and just one walk in 12 innings). "It's awesome watching these guys every day," rookie infielder Tony Graffanino said. Now the Braves want to finish what they've started. Remember, despite all their success in the '90s, they've still captured only one World Series championship. "Yeah, we've got the best record in baseball," Jones said. "But it's April. We've got five more months, a lot of baseball left. We got off to the start we'd like. Let's keep building upon it and don't look back." White Sox general manager not planning changes yet Struggling Chicago is in last place in division, has worst record in AL By RICK GANG The Associated Press CHICAGO — One month into the season, the Chicago White Sox are a $54 million disappointment. They have the worst record in the American League and are lucky to be in AL Central, where as the last-place team they were just five games out after Tuesday night's 2-1 win at Texas. What's wrong? What's not? "When you are 7-16 (now 8-16), you don't focus on one area, there are a lot of problems," general manager Ron Schueler said Tuesday, adding he's not ready for a major shakeup just yet. Schueler said he is tired of talk about cold weather and it's early- season effect. The forecast for the first week of an 11-game home stand is for milder conditions. "I've done a lot of evaluation and it's time to go out and get some wins. ... I don't want to hear any more excuses," Schueler said. The White Sox had 21 errors before Tuesday game, a team ERA of 4.73 and a .252 team batting average. Albert Belle, the $11 million a year free agent has struggled all season, and the White Sox have missed third baseman Robin Ventura, who's out three to four "I've done a lot of evaluation and it's time to go out and get some wins.... I don't want to hear any more excuses." Ron Schueler White Sox general manager months with a broken ankle. "You have to go on, other clubs have injuries and rally around it. You can't sit there and cry." Schueler said. Schueler said the manager is always a focus when a team is not playing well, adding any criticism "should be put on me as much as (Terry) Bevington." "You never hear of players getting fired." Bevington said he's not worried about his job status. Schueler, who fired Gene Lament after an 11-20 start in 1995, said he's not looking to make a switch. And Bevington, who was retained after the White Sox failed in their off-season attempts to hire Jim Leyland, said he's not bothered by criticism or talk of job security. "I learned a long time ago that you might as well take all the blame because you're going to get in anyhow," Bevington said. "I'm not into fair or unfair. I'm a strong man. I can take responsibility." Schueler said it's too early to make major judgments on personnel changes for a team with such a hefty payroll. "A lot of clubs have gotten off to bad and come back," Schueler said. "I'm not concerned yet. We have a along way to go." McDowell to start Thursday CLEVELAND — Jack McDowell, demoted to the Cleveland bullpen after three bad starts, will return to the starting rotation Thursday following two scoreless appearances as a reliever. McDowell worked six strong innings in the first two regular-season relief appearances of his career after 254 consecutive starts. "We felt enough was enough, let's get him back in the rotation where he belongs," Indians manager Mike Hargrove said before Tuesday's game against the Oakland A's. "We're not stupid. Jack was a Cy Young winner as a starter, not as a bullpen guy." McDowell allowed 28 hits in 13 23 innings with a 12.51 ERA in three starts. Coming out of the bullpen, McDowell looked like himself for the first time in a long time. His fastball was clocked as high as 93 mph, and his signature split-fingered fastball was diving the way it did when McDowell became the AL's winningest pitcher in the 90s.
