Ailing Glaus sits out

Toronto - Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Troy Glaus missed Monday night's 10-2 victory over the Texas Rangers due to a sore right knee. Glaus likely will miss at least one more game.

Quintanilla on DL

Pittsburgh - The Colorado Rockies placed infielder Omar Quintanilla on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of an injury to his right shin. Quintanilla wasn't immediately replaced on the roster. Colorado played its game Monday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates with one less reserve. Quintanilla fouled a pitch off his shin Saturday night in Cincinnati. Manager Clint Hurdle said there is no break.

Japan's Oh has surgery

Tokyo - Japan home run king Sadaharu Oh had successful surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his stomach, his doctor said Tuesday. Masaki Kitajima, a surgeon at Tokyo's prestigious Keio University Hospital, told a televised news conference Tuesday that the 66-year-old Oh's stomach was totally removed Monday because of cancer in the upper part of the organ.

Twins' Stewart done?

Minneapolis - Shannon Stewart might have played his last game with the Minnesota Twins. With severe pain in his left foot stemming from an aggravation of an earlier injury that prompted a six-week stint on the disabled list, Stewart shook his head when asked Monday if he thought he could come back this season. The prognosis for center fielder Torii Hunter is better. Eligible to be activated from the disabled list July 31, Hunter said Monday that he would be ready to return then from the stress fracture in his left foot.

Gammons in rehab

Boston - Peter Gammons, an ESPN analyst and member of the writer's wing of the baseball Hall of Fame, was released Monday from a Boston hospital where he was being treated for a brain aneurysm. The 61-year-old Gammons was moved to an undisclosed rehabilitation center, his wife, Gloria said in a statement. Gammons was stricken at his Cape Cod home June 27.
