Red Sox’ Gorman Retires

Compiled From Wire Services

Lou Gorman, 65, who as general manager of the Boston Red Sox for 10 years helped the team win three division titles, has retired. He will remain a part-time consultant to the club.

The Philadelphia Phillies signed second baseman Mickey Morandini to a one-year contract worth $1.75 million plus performance bonuses, thus avoiding an arbitration hearing for the 1995 All-Star.

Closing pitcher Mel Rojas and the Montreal Expos settled on a $2.025 million contract to avoid arbitration.

The M’s claimed right-handed pitcher Aaron Small on waivers from the Florida Marlins. He has been designated for assignment.
