ANGELS: RHP Jack McDowell was put on the 15-day DL with an inflamed right elbow. IF Craig Shipley was activated.
ORIOLES: RHP Mike Mussina, on the disabled list with a wart on his pitching hand, threw on the side and may be activated for Sunday's game. "As far as I can tell, it's taken care of," Mussina said. "It's not perfect yet."
ROYALS: At least three of the bids to buy the team were favorable, said Joe McGuff, a member of the board Ewing Kauffman's will set up to oversee the team after his death until a new owner is found. Among the known bidders are Lamar Hunt, owner of the Kansas City Chiefs; retired Royals star George Brett; and New York lawyer E. Miles Prentice. Each has said he leads groups that made bids.
