Outfielder Pete Incaviglia was placed on waivers yesterday by the Texas Rangers, who said they wanted to rid the team of the slugging outfielder because he was unhappy with his role.Texas manager Bobby Valentine said that he made the decision after Incaviglia complained Sunday about having to bat seventh in the lineup."He showed me how unhappy and unproductive he can be," Valentine said. "He threw a complete tantrum. At that time, I bTC said, 'Pete's not going to be on this team.' "The Rangers placed Incaviglia on unconditional release waivers, a move that could allow them to sign free agent Brian Downing while staying within the team's self-imposed salary cap of approximately $20 million.

A Baltimore County parks official will have sole authority to exempt developers from requirements to set aside land within communities for recreational use under legislation approved by the County Council last night. The bill empowers the county recreation and parks director to decide whether a developer can pay cash as an alternative to preserving open space within a neighborhood. For large developments, such decisions have traditionally been made at public hearings by a zoning commissioner.

A prominent developer with a history of disputes with Anne Arundel County filed a $50 million class-action lawsuit this week, alleging that four county government administrations have wrongly exacted land and money from developers in exchange for approving their subdivisions. Silver Spring-based Halle Development Inc. is claiming that the county's decade-old practice of issuing waivers to its law that mandates adequate school capacity in exchange for developer contributions toward new schools is unconstitutional and banned by county law. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, with a companion case in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

The Orioles' search for a successor to Cal Ripken won't include Casey Blake, who was claimed off waivers yesterday by the Minnesota Twins. Blake rejoins the organization that turned him loose last month. He batted .133 (2-for-15) with a home run and two RBIs in six games with the Orioles, who used him more at first base even though he's more comfortable at the other infield corner. Blake batted .318 (7-for-22) with a double and two RBIs in 13 games with the Twins from June 7 to July 21. He spent the rest of the season at Triple-A Edmonton until going to the Orioles, who could pursue a third baseman via trade or free agency this winter if unsatisfied with Tony Batista.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos decided against trading pitcher David Wells and outfielder Bobby Bonilla before the July 31 trading deadline. Now they can't trade them even if they so desired.According to a league source, the Orioles attempted to pass Wells and Bonilla through waivers earlier this month, and if they had cleared, the Orioles could've traded them. But somebody else -- it's not known which team or teams -- claimed the two, and the Orioles pulled Bonilla and Wells back off waivers.

CLEVELAND - Orioles designated hitter Aubrey Huff could still be traded to a contender this month, but All-Star closer George Sherrill can't be. According to two baseball sources, Huff, who is having a resurgent season, passed through revocable "trade" waivers and can be dealt until midnight Aug. 31 and still be eligible for a contender's postseason roster. Sherrill, however, was claimed by at least one unnamed American League team and was pulled back by the Orioles. They now have lost revocable waivers on Sherrill, meaning he cannot be placed on waivers again without the risk of losing him with no compensation in return.

Orioles pitchers Calvin Maduro and Kris Foster cleared waivers this week, bumping them off the 40-man roster, and the club assigned them to Triple-A Ottawa. They have 10 days to either accept the assignment or become free agents. Maduro went 2-5 with a 5.56 ERA after being named the Orioles' No. 5 starter coming out of spring training. He underwent surgery in June to remove a fractured bone spur from his right elbow and missed the rest of the season. The Orioles acquired Foster from the Los Angeles Dodgers at the 2001 trade deadline, along with starting catcher Geronimo Gil, for reliever Mike Trombley.
