Around the horn

Barry Bonds: A federal judge gave prosecutors more time to decide whether home run record-holder Bonds should face another perjury trial. Bonds' criminal trial ended inconclusively April 13 when a jury convicted the seven-time MVP on an obstruction of justice count but deadlocked on three perjury charges.

Oakland Athletics: Put outfielder Josh Willingham on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left Achilles and promoted first baseman-outfielder Chris Carter from the minors. Carter played for the Buffalo Bisons last season.

Cleveland Indians: Optioned outfielder Travis Buck to Triple-A Columbus. In two stints with the Indians, Buck has batted .228 with two homers and nine RBIs in 32 games.
