Twins' owner set o eddle Carew

Calvin Griffith, who last fall said he
would be "run out of town" by the fans
if he traded Rod Carew, may be getting
close to dealing the American League's
Most Valuable Player of 1977.
Griffith said yesterday that chances
were good that the six-time American
League batting champion would be
traded before Thursday's midnight
Griffith admitted that he was
negotiating with a number of teams, in-
cluding five with which Carew, who has
veto power over any trade, said he
would be willing to play.
The teams were the New York
Yankees, Boston Red Sox, California
Angels, Texas Rangers and Kansas
City Royals.
"Some of the teams that weren't in-
cluded on the list submitted by Carew
are interested," Griffith said.
"We haven't decided anything. We
are trying to find out what is available
for Rod Carew," Griffith said. "There's

DETROIT (AP) - Kirk Gibson,

professional baseball contract with the
Detroit Tigers yesterday.

that timeout, which will be allowed only after play has been stopped.

Reds'Bench benched
CINCINNATI (AP)-Cincinnati Reds catcher Johnny Bench was
admitted yesterday to a local hospital for treatment of a back problem which
has kept him out of the starting lineup since the end of last month.
The all-star catcher last started for the National League baseball team
on May 27 and has appeared twice since then in pinch-hitting roles. He is
currently hitting .230.

Ex-'M' hurler honored
NEW YORK (AP)-Milwaukee's Lary Sorensen, a former Michigan
star, who hurled two complete-game victories and compiled a 1.00 earned run
average, was named American League Player of the Week for the period
June 5-11, AL President Lee McPhail announced yesterday.
Sorensen, a 22-year-old right-hander, allowed 14 hits in 18 innings and
did not allowa walk. He now has gone 28% innings without issuing a base on
balls and ran his consecutive complete-game streak to eight, breaking the
Brewers' record of seven.

This spring, when Griffith balked at
signing reliever Mike Marshall, Carew
became angry and blasted the Twins'
owner for not helping the team.
Carew said he never would sign
another contract with the Twins, and
that if Griffith was going to "stick it to
the team," he was going to "stick it to
Calvin," by playing out his option in
1979 and selling his services to the
highest bidder.
Griffith eventually relented and
signed Marshall, but last Thursday
Carew rejected a reported five-year of-
fer for $2 million by Griffith.
Carew is making about $190,000 per
year and is in the final year of a three-
year contract, which also binds him to
the Twins for an option year in 1979.
"We turned down the offer and said,
we would negotiate again after the
season is over. . . if I'm still here," the
first baseman said last week.
