The left-handed Joyner, hitting .321 with five homers and 33 RBIs, sustained a fracture at the base of his thumb while sliding into second base in the fourth inning of Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia.
HOUSTON (AP) — Houston Astros general manager Gerry Hunsicker says the release of pitcher Greg Swindell might not be the last shakeup as the team struggles to hold fust place in baseball’s worst division.
Three disappointing seasons after signing pitcher Greg Swindell to a $17 million contract, the Astros cut their losses Monday by releasing the lefthander and promoting a rookie.
Hunsicker said there probably won’t be any more major changes to the roster, but he and other Astros officials hinted that other under-performing Astros had better improve.
“I certainly wouldn't rule out that other changes would be coming,” he said. “I don’t have anything imminent”
Swindell, 31, lost back-to-back games and had an 11.37 ERA in a pair of relief appear-

In 41 2-3 innings, he struck OU 46 while yielding 26 hits, three home runs and ll walks.
■ NEW YORK (AP) — Fred McGriff of the Atlanta Braves won the National League player of the week award. He hatted .524 (11-for-21) with three homers, five RBIs, two doubles, four runs and a 1.048 slugging percentage.

ances for the Astros test week after reluming from a groin injury. He had been dismal in four starts before the irgury, going 0-1 with 13 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings.
This has never happened to me,” a chokad-up Swindell told reporters after he was CUL ‘It’s hard to take."
Swindell, who attended high school in Houston and college at the University of Texas, returned home from Cincinnati before the 1993 season. Doug Drabek also signed a big free-agent contract with the Astros about the same time, and the two were expected to anchor a top-notch rotation.
But neither produced, and Drabek continues to be erratic. Swindell’s overall Astros record was 30-34 with a 4.48 ERA.
“Greg came here 3 1/2 years ago with high expectations,” Hunsicker said. “I guess it's safe to say that his career here was laced with many difficulties and frustrations on everyone’s prat”
