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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Manager Ryne Sandberg said it would be great if Grady Sizemore elected to stay with the organization if the outfielder clears waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday morning, making room for Cody Asche. "He's a great guy, a baseball player. Good to have around," Sandberg said. "That'd be nice. It'd be a luxury to have him stay with the organization. " Sizemore batted .245 in 98 at-bats. He spent a stretch of five games earlier this month as the team's No. 3 hitter.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - At this point, after another spring in which he failed to stick with the major-league club, Phillippe Aumont probably would benefit from a change of scenery. "Obviously, I think anybody would think that," he said. "But the bottom line is I'm still here, and I'm still getting an opportunity somewhere. That's all that really matters. " None of baseball's other 29 teams deemed Aumont worthy of a waiver claim, so the hard-throwing but erratic 6-foot-7 reliever was outrighted Wednesday off the Phillies' 40-man roster.

MILWAUKEE - Thomas Robinson went from shocked to happy Tuesday upon hearing the 76ers had claimed him off waivers. "I was happy because the Sixers made it clear that they wanted me here," Robinson said before Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. "At the end of the day, I'm happy. " Robinson had been placed on waivers Sunday by the Denver Nuggets. The 23-year-old was initially shocked because he agreed to play with Brooklyn on Monday. He had to clear waivers Tuesday evening before signing a contract.

MILWAUKEE -  The 76ers nabbed Thomas Robinson, the player the Brooklyn Nets coveted. The Sixers claimed the power forward off waivers Tuesday. To make room, they released Tim Frazier from his second 10-day contract. By acquiring Robinson, they blocked the Nets' bid to sign him to a 10-day deal. Robinson had been placed on waivers Sunday by the Denver Nuggets.  He agreed to play with Brooklyn on Monday, but had to clear waivers Tuesday evening before signing a contract. The Nets are upset over the Sixers' actions, according to multiple league sources.

THE STATISTICS and analytics matched what Dean Lombardi's eyes were witnessing. He could see the drop-off in Mike Richards like everyone else, but didn't want to believe it. Managing a dynastic Stanley Cup enterprise isn't always black and white, after all. Not when people are involved. Lombardi had one final opportunity last June to buy out Richards' contract, but was swayed by the conversation he had with the player who made the Los Angeles Kings' 2012 Cup possible. He decided against it. It was a decision the general manager clearly regrets now, after placing the former Flyers captain on waivers yesterday.

The Flyers, once known as the Broad Street Bullies, put winger Jay Rosehill on waivers Thursday and will start the season without a heavyweight enforcer for the first time since the early 1970s. What in the name of Dave Schultz is going on here? Enforcers, Flyers coach Craig Berube said after Friday's practice in Voorhees, are needed less today than in the past. "I think everybody knows that," he said. "You look at the rules, look at the game, look at everything. " Over the years, the Flyers have had more than 30 enforcers, including Dave Schultz, Paul Holmgren, Ed Hospodar, Glen Cochrane, Dave Brown, Donald Brashear, Berube, Riley Cote, and Jody Shelley.
