Hawaii’s own

Benny Agbayani, Mets: The St. Louis School alumnus is on the disabled list and out for another 1-3 weeks with a broken bone in his wrist.

"Benny feels real good and probably will swing tomorrow," Mets manager Bobby Valentine said.

Mike Fetters, Dodgers: The Iolani School product pitched one inning in yesterday's game against the Padres, entering in the eighth. He faced three batters in a 1-2-3 inning with no hits, walks or strikeouts.

Chris Truby, Astros: The Damien graduate went 0-for-2 yesterday, walking twice and striking out once in a 6-5 loss to the Cardinals. The starting third baseman also scored a run in the sixth to help Houston tie the game at 5.

Henderson called up

SAN DIEGO >> Rickey Henderson is headed back to the major leagues.

The career steals leader was called up by the San Diego Padres after going 2-for-4 with a double yesterday for Triple-A Portland. He hit .275 with five runs, three RBIs and one walk in nine games for the Beavers.

"I just want an opportunity to play baseball," Henderson said. "I still get the biggest thrill from playing baseball."

Henderson, 42, needs three walks to break Babe Ruth's major league record of 2,062, and 68 runs to break Ty Cobb's record of 2,245. He also needs 86 hits to become the 25th player in baseball history to reach 3,000.
