Around the horn

New York Mets: Released second baseman Luis Castillo on Friday despite still owing him $6 million, cutting ties with a three-time All-Star. The 35-year-old Castillo had lost a lot of range in recent years.

Roger Clemens: The law firm that produced the Mitchell Report investigating performance-enhancing drugs in baseball is fighting the former pitching star over access to evidence it collected. DLA Piper filed a motion in federal court to quash Clemens' subpoena for material it collected accusing Clemens of using steroids and human growth hormone.

Los Angeles Angels: Scot Shields has retired after a 10-year career with the Los Angeles Angels spent mostly as the primary setup man during the team's period of dominance in the AL West. The 35-year-old Shields was a free agent after two injury-plagued seasons.

Hall of Fame: Will honor "Talkin' Baseball" composer and singer Terry Cashman this summer as part of induction weekend, 30 years after his song became a ballpark favorite. Cashman will perform his song once again during ceremonies July 23.
