A 19-year-old right hander with exceptional control clerk or usually plays a guessing game with manager Grady Hatton during starting assignments. As a precautionary measure Hatton yanks Dierker after about 110 pitches to guard against overwork. But Dierker never knows when his number is up. Although Dierker came within three pitches of reaching his limit tuesday night its doubtful that Hatton would have taken him out.

Boston vetoes in first inter Boston up a the Boston patriots have passed up a Chance to become the first american football league team to Boston up a the last place Boston red sox wont set any records on the playing Field this season but they May establish a new Mark for most trades in one year. Veteran Pitcher Earl Wilson who hurled a no hotter in 1962 and was voted the team s most valuable player last year was traded tuesday to the Detroit tigers along with Joe Christopher for slugging outfielder Don Demeter and an unnamed minor leaguer. The Swap marked the red sox ninth visit to the trading Market since the close of the 1965 season. The red sox peddled outfielder Jim Gosger and pitchers Ken Sanders and Guido grim to Kansas City monday for speedy outfielder Jose Tartabull and hurlers Rollie Sheldon and John Wyatt. Quot we regret giving up Wilson Quot Boston manager Billy Herman said Quot but we think we have obtained a great outfielder in Demeter who has always hit Well at Fenway Park. We think Sheldon can take Wilson a place in the starting Wilson started quickly this year and was 5-2 even though the red sox were stumbling toward the american league basement. But the 6-foot-3 right hander faltered during the last month and his record slipped to 5-5. Demeter is another Long Ball hitter for the Homer Happy red sox. He joins the league s defending Home run Champion Tony Conigliaro and Rookie George Scott who is tied for the league Homer Lead in the Boston lineup. Quot Demeter goes to Centerfield immediately Quot Herman said. Quot he can hit with Power run throw and he succeeds Gosger Christopher and others in the Centerfield spot and should solve that problem. The strapping 30-year-old can also play first base. Quot Demeter will shake up a lot of people on this team Quot Herman said. Christopher obtained from the mets last fall in a Deal for shortstop Eddie Bressoud started slow and tailed off. He was late for Spring training saw Little action and is batting .077 with one hit in 13 trips to the plate. In Sheldon and Wyatt Boston Hopes to have plugged two gaps in its Lack Luster pitching corps. The red sox have been on the Lookout for another starting Pitcher for several seasons. The fact that Sheldon has an 8-0 lifetime record against Boston made him particularly attractive. Wyatt will team with Mcmahon in the bullpen. His fastball blended with aging Mcmahon a junk pitches could make an effective combination for the pitching poor red sox. The trades leave Boston one player Over the Legal limit. Best bet to be Cut reliever Dan Oslo ski. Boston owner Tom Yawkey was due at Fenway Park tonight when the red sox open a two week Home stand with 17 new players added to the roster since the end of 1965, Yawkey May think he sat the wrong place.
