Avalanche forward Konowalchuk retires

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado Avalanche forward Steve Konowalchuk retired Friday after tests showed he has a disease that can lead to irregular heart rhythms.

"After a complete evaluation from a number of different physicians and experts associated with this condition, we decided that this was the best and only alternative for me," Konowalchuk said in a written statement.

The team said the 33-year-old Konowalchuk has Long QT Syndrome, a genetic disease involving electrical conduction that can lead to irregular heart rhythms.

Yankees Johnson

has herniated disc

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees lefty Randy Johnson has a herniated disc in his lower back, an injury that could prevent him from pitching in the playoffs next week.

The injury was discovered during an MRI exam Thursday. After being examined by team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon and back specialist Dr. Paul Kuflick, Johnson received an epidural injection Friday.

Johnson, who turned 43 on Sept. 10, has a 7.64 ERA over his last three starts, giving up five runs each outing and failing to last longer than six innings. He is 17-11 this season with a career-high 5.00 ERA.
