The Orioles added more organizational depth Monday, claiming infielder Cord Phelps off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Phelps -- primarily a second baseman who has also played left field, third base and shortstop in the minors - played 53 games with Cleveland over the past three seasons and compiled a .159/.221/.248 slash line. He was hitless in nine at-bats for the Indians last season, but he dealt with neck and right wrist injuries throughout the year. He did not appear in a game after July 2 and was placed on the 60-day disabled list in August.

It is interesting how the Anne Arundel County Board of Education has made County Executive John G. Gary look like the bad guy for signing off on new development in Crofton, where Arundel High supposedly will have 1,000 students too many by the year 2000. Board members act as if the county sprung this on them from out of the blue. But these developers were seeking waivers from the county's adequate facilities regulations, which forbid building in areas with overcrowded schools, long before Mr. Gary was elected.

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The Chicago White Sox have asked waivers on outfielder Bo Jackson in what appears to be a technical move to deal with his roster and contract status.If Jackson clears waivers, the White Sox would be able to re-sign him to a new deal without exercising their $910,000 option. If Chicago had waited until March 15, the deadline for exercising the option, and then tried to get Jackson off the roster by placing him on unconditional release waivers, it would not have been able to re-sign him until May 1.The danger in the move, made Friday, is that another team could claim Jackson by Wednesday's 2 p.m. EST deadline.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson cleared waivers Sunday and can now be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles, according to an industry source. Dickerson, who was placed on outright waivers Friday, can choose to not accept the minor league assignment and can elect free agency, which would allow him to sign with any club. The Orioles, however, are now attempting to keep Dickerson in the organization, according to a source. Because he can play all three outfield positions, he adds valuable defensive versatility in the minors and would be a call away from getting back to the majors.
