Bonds jury still needs more time

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds is going to have to wait a bit longer for his verdict.

The jury considering four felony counts against the home run king deliberated without a conclusion for the second day Monday. The eight women and four men, who started their discussions Friday before a weekend break, will resume work this morning.

Bonds is charged with three counts of making false statements to a grand jury in 2003 and one count of obstruction of justice. He's accused of lying when he denied receiving steroids and human growth hormone from personal trainer Greg Anderson and for saying he allowed only doctors to give him an injection.

The jury has made requests to rehear two pieces of evidence that both center on the injection count.

Friday, the jurors asked to hear a replay of the 2003 secret recording made by former Bonds business partner Steve Hoskins in which Anderson talks about injecting the slugger. Monday, the panel spent 71 minutes hearing a clerk read back the March 31 testimony of Bonds' former personal shopper Kathy Hoskins, Steve's sister. She testified that she saw Anderson inject Bonds near the navel in 2002.

A'S: All-Star RHP Trevor Cahill, 23, agreed to a five-year contract worth $30.5 million. … RHP Rich Harden, who was scheduled to throw to hitters for the first time since going on the disabled list March 30, was shut down because of a setback with his strained lat muscle.

BLUE JAYS: CF Rajai Davis went on the disabled list after aggravating a right ankle injury sustained April 1.

BREWERS: Starting C Jonathan Lucroy was activated from the disabled list after being out since spring training with a broken finger.

meTS: The contract of RHP Jason Isringhausen was bought, and RHP Blaine Boyer was designated for assignment. Isringhausen, 38, last pitched in the majors for the Rays in 2009.

NATIONALS: All-Star 3B Ryan Zimmerman is expected to go on the disabled list today with an abdominal strain.

ORIOLES: SS J.J. Hardy is expected to miss 2-3 weeks after an MRI exam revealed a strained oblique muscle.

TIGERS: RF Magglio Ordonez is out indefinitely with an Achilles' tendon injury.

TWINS: 2B Tsuyoshi Nishioka won't need surgery on his fractured fibula and could return in 4-6 weeks.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.
