Galaxy regrets incident:

Los Angeles Galaxy coach and general manager Bruce Arena says the team regrets the exchange between David Beckham and a fan at halftime of its exhibition against AC Milan.

Arena?s comments Monday come a day after Beckham was the target of frequent booing and derisive banners held up by one of the team?s support groups during Beckham?s first home game since returning from a five-month loan to AC Milan. At halftime of Sunday?s 2-2 tie, Beckham walked toward the L.A. Riot Squad section and motioned to a fan to come closer. The man jumped down from the seats and was arrested by police for trespassing.

Bulls release Roberson:

The Bulls released guard Anthony Roberson. The team needed to make a decision on whether to exercise an option that would give the 6-foot-2 guard a guaranteed contract for the coming season. Since the Bulls ? backcourt already features Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich, Jannero Pargo and Lindsey Hunter, Roberson was expendable. The former Florida star joined the Bulls on Feb. 19 in trade with New York.

Pedro Martinez, the Philadelphia Phillies? new right-hander took the first step Monday toward making a rehab start as he prepares for a return to the major leagues.

"I?m ready, I?m ready," the three-time Cy Young Award winner said after throwing long toss. "I did it (throwing) in the Dominican, now I am ready to do it here."

The 37-year-old Martinez, who last week signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Phillies, is on the 15-day disabled list because of a shoulder strain.

Giambi goes on 15-day DL: The Oakland Athletics placed struggling slugger Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a strained right quadriceps muscle, a nagging injury that has been bothering him off and on over the past month. The A?s said the injury wasn?t considered career-threatening, but couldn?t provide a timeline for when Giambi might be ready to return.

? Mets general manager Omar Minaya gave a vote of confidence to Mets manager Jerry Manuel during the fourth inning of New York?s game against the Washington Nationals on Monday night, Minaya said that he recently spoke with Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, and Wilpon was supportive. "I want you to be our general manager, and I want Jerry to be our manager," Minaya said he was told by Wilpon.

? Rangers closer Frank Francisco, who has already been on the disabled list twice for injuries, was put on the 15-day DL because he is unavailable to pitch due to a mild case of pneumonia.

? Chien-Ming Wang (1-6, 9.64 ERA) had a setback in his recovery from a strained right shoulder, making it unlikely he will return to the Yankees anytime soon.

In a motion filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlotte, N.C., Mayfield?s lawyers contended Judge Graham Mullen properly ruled when he granted a July 1 injunction. The filing is a response to NASCAR?s request that Mullen?s order be put on hold as the decision is appealed to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va.
