Baltimore's Miguel Tejada and Oakland's Mike Piazza were placed on waivers in the last week, ESPN.com reported last night. Tejada, a shortstop, was claimed by the Chicago White Sox, the Web site reported. The Orioles and White Sox could not work out a deal, so he is expected to remain in Baltimore, sources said. Piazza was not claimed on waivers, which means the Athletics can trade the catcher/designated hitter to any team. When a player is claimed on waivers after the July 31 trade deadline, his team has three options: work out a trade with the team that claimed him, allow him to leave without compensation, or withdraw him from waivers.

Sean Avery cleared waivers yesterday, and the next step for the Dallas Stars is to find a team for the controversial left wing to start playing again. Dallas placed Avery on waivers Saturday. As expected, no team claimed Avery, who signed a $15.5 million, 4-year contract last summer. Avery played only 23 games for Dallas before being suspended six games by the NHL on Dec. 2 for crude comments made about his ex-girlfriends dating other NHL players. A source told ESPN.com last night that Avery is expected to be assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

The Phillies claimed veteran righthander William VanLandingham off waivers from the Giants yesterday. Clubhouse manager Frank Coppenbarger doesn't have to worry about fitting all the letters for the longest surname in the major leagues on the back of a Phillies uniform just yet, though. The 27-year-old VanLandingham has until Monday to decide whether to join the Phillies or opt for free agency. "I talked to the agent [Chris Arnold] and he said they haven't decided what they're going to do," general manager Lee Thomas said.

Teams around the league place most of their players on revocable waivers in August, if for no other reason than to gauge the player's value around baseball. If one of its players is claimed, a team can either pull him back without repercussion, negotiate a trade with the team that claimed him, or, if hoping to get rid of salary, allow the other team to assume the player's contract. If a player passes through waivers unclaimed, his team is free to trade him to any team until Aug. 31, as it could before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

Ron Hextall's status with the Flyers remains muddled. Yesterday was 48 hours from the time the Flyers said they placed the veteran goalie on NHL waivers. Yet when the club called the league office at noon to see if Hextall had been claimed or had cleared waivers, they were informed that Hextall wouldn't clear until noon on Sunday, July 4. "I guess we were all under the wrong assumption on the timing," said assistant general manager Paul Holmgren. Under the league's collective bargaining agreement, the 48-hour waiver rule applies only between Sept.

WASHINGTON - Welfare is causing a ruckus in the presidential campaign. But the program is a shadow of its old self from the 1970s, when Ronald Reagan used the image of "welfare queens" to assail government poverty programs promoted by liberals. Nowadays government cash assistance to the poor is mainly conditioned on work. And the Obama administration waivers excoriated by Mitt Romney as gutting welfare reform are unlikely to reverse that basic policy, as even some architects of work requirements acknowledge.

The Upper Moreland Board of Commissioners has effectively denied a series of waivers requested by developer Dominic LaRosa in connection with his Colonial 12 project. At a meeting that lasted less than 10 minutes during Monday night's snowstorm, the board did not take any action on LaRosa's request, effectively denying the waivers, according to township manager Brian L. Mook. LaRosa has proposed constructing 23 single-family houses on his 13-acre property in an R-2 residential zone off Pioneer Road.

The Flyers claimed center Craig Darby off waivers yesterday from the New York Islanders. Darby, 23, recorded two assists in 10 games with the Islanders in the 1995-96 season. He had 22 goals and 28 assists in 68 games with their AHL affiliate, the Worcester (Mass.) IceCats. The 6-2, 200-pound native of Oneida, N.Y., was acquired by New York from Montreal together with Kirk Muller and Mathieu Schneider in exchange for Pierre Turgeon and Vladimir Malakhov in April 1995. In 23 career NHL games, Darby has recorded four assists.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - In a bit of a surprise, the Flyers put forward Sam Gagner on waivers Tuesday to make room for defenseman Mark Streit, who is expected to come off the long-term injured reserve list for the game Wednesday in San Jose. The Flyers need to clear less than $300,000 in order to have enough salary-cap space to add Streit and keep Shayne Gostisbehere on the roster, according to general manager Ron Hextall. "Any decision we made at this point wasn't going to be easy," Hextall said by telephone from Helsinki, where he was watching the World Junior Championships.

THE HOT STOVE does not stop burning for orientations, so the past month has been a rather eventful one for Matt Klentak. Since Andy MacPhail brought his new general manager aboard, the Phillies have worked baseball's back channels of talent as hard as any team, adding starter Jeremy Hellickson via trade, parting ways with Domonic Brown and Justin De Fratus, and claiming three relievers and an outfielder off waivers. To put that last bit into perspective, the Phillies made only six waiver claims between the start of the 2013 season and the end of the 2015 campaign.

THE INVENTORY of pitchers that will be participating for big-league jobs this spring grew by one on Monday, when Phillies general manager Matt Klentak claimed another off waivers. Righthander Michael Mariot was claimed off waivers from the Kansas City Royals, becoming the fifth pitcher Klentak has added since taking over as GM at the end of October. The 27-year-old Mariot, who went 4-2 with a 2.32 ERA in 42 relief appearances at Triple A Omaha, joins rotation-lock Jeremy Hellickson (trade)

Left winger Chris Porter, one of the top players at the Flyers' training camp, was plucked off waivers Thursday by the Minnesota Wild. Porter, 31, had two goals and an assist in four preseason games, and he lives in Minnesota and went to prep school there. He will be reunited with Wild star Zach Parise. The two have been in each other's weddings and they were teammates at the University of North Dakota, where new Flyers coach Dave Hakstol used to coach. The Flyers were hoping that the hard-nosed Porter would clear waivers so they could send him to the AHL's Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

CHRIS PORTER walked down the tunnel and stepped on the Wells Fargo Center ice at 6:28 p.m. with the rest of the Flyers for pregame warmups last night. At 7:09, he climbed over the boards with linemates Wayne Simmonds and Sam Gagner for his first shift. At 7:23, he tied the Flyers' preseason game against the Devils at one apiece midway through the first period. But about seven hours before the game - which the Devils won, 4-2 - and shortly after morning skate ended, Porter and Colin McDonald were placed on waivers as the Flyers get closer to finalizing their regular-season, opening-night roster.

NO MATTER how many positive statements are made about Scott Laughton's play this training camp - and there have been plenty from his coach and general manager - the reality is inescapable. The Flyers are one cut away from reaching the maximum, 23-man roster, and Laughton is the only player who can be sent back without the risk of being lost in the waiver process. And if GM Ron Hextall needed any more reason to be cautious in this process, losing Chris Porter to the Minnesota Wild on waivers yesterday lessened the organizational depth the Flyers have at the forward position.

PHOENIX - The only thing that can block the Phillies from trading Chase Utley now is if the veteran second baseman invokes his no-trade rights. Utley reportedly cleared revocable waivers Tuesday, meaning the Phillies, if given the player's permission, could trade him to any team this month. The six-time all-star has the ability to veto any trade because he has spent 10 years in the major leagues and at least five with the same team. Utley has long maintained his desire to play for the Phillies as long as possible, but since spring training he has said he would listen to trade proposals from the front office out of respect for his longtime club.

PHOENIX - Major League Baseball's trade deadline arrived more than 10 days ago, but it doesn't mean major league teams are finished shopping for roster upgrades. The Phillies traded for a vital piece of their 2008 championship run in August: home-run hero Matt Stairs. Teams can still trade for players this month - and have them eligible for postseason play - if they consummate a deal before Sept. 1. The catch is those players must be moved through waivers - either in getting claimed off waivers, claimed and traded for, or passing through waivers and then traded.

THE FIRST significant step of the Phillies' rebuilding project that underwent a major facelift in the last week began seven months ago, when franchise icon Jimmy Rollins was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers a week before Christmas. Rollins arrives back at Citizens Bank Park for the first time since the deal tonight. The former MVP, franchise hit king, and longtime ignitor atop the Phillies' lineup is likely in line for a roaring, standing ovation at the 12-year-old ballpark. Despite a rough first season in LA - his .216 batting average is tied for the worst in baseball among 111 qualifying hitters - Rollins has maintained his starting job at shortstop, apparently because the Dodgers value his defense, veteran leadership and experience in a pennant race.
