JOSE CANSECO, the Texas Rangers outfielder, said a torn elbow ligament will definitely end his season and may possibly end his baseball career. Canseco, who is considering surgery, believes the injury may relate to a brief pitching appearance in May, when he felt a sharp pain in his elbow. The Cuban-born Canseco, a two- time American League home run champion, has had a disappointing season, hitting .255, with 10 homers and 46 RBIs.
