Waivers

Forgive Buck Showalter for displaying a certain ambivalence toward Wednesday's 4 p.m. deadline for teams to make trades without passing players through waivers. There's definitely a fine line there. If you're the manager of a team that went to the playoffs last year and is currently in the second wild-card position, you don't want to be broadcasting that you're dissatisfied with anyone on your roster. So he did his best Tuesday to talk around some of the trade speculation that has attached to his team.

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.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson, who was designated for assignment last Friday when Henry Urrutia and Danny Valencia joined the Orioles, has been placed on outright waivers, according to an industry source. The Orioles had been trying to deal Dickerson, but apparently could not find a deal involving the 31-year-old. If he is not claimed on waivers - teams only have to pay a $20,000 claiming fee, while picking up his remaining salary and placing him on the 25-man roster - then he will be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

First baseman Travis Ishikawa, who was designated for assignment on June 29, was claimed by the New York Yankees on waivers Sunday afternoon. Ishikawa, 29, had two hits in 17 at-bats in his brief time with the Orioles. He had batted .316 with a .413 on-base percentage in 49 games with the Triple-A Norfolk Tides. Signed to a minor league deal, Ishikawa had an opt-out clause after June 15 if he weren't promoted. He exercised it, and the Orioles promoted him. But within 10 days, he was off the roster to make room for Jair Jurrjens in the bullpen.

NHL Capitals re-sign Kundratek, place Schultz on waivers The Capitals re-signed defenseman Tomas Kundratek to a two-year contract, the team announced Tuesday. Kundratek, 23, will earn $550,000 on a one-way deal in 2013-14, but in 2014-15 it switches to a two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $150,000 in the American Hockey League. It's an opportunity for Kundratek, who was an impending restricted free agent, to show he can stick in the NHL for a full 82-game season after appearing in 25 games (one goal, six assists)

Regarding Gov. Martin O'Malley's decision to petition the EPA fuel standards on behalf of the Carnival Cruise Line, I urge Carnival to move its operations from Baltimore to Beijing or Somalia ("O'Malley lobbies EPA on fuel rules," June 16). Maryland doesn't need to suck up to any corporation trying to pull off an economic development blackmail scheme on it. It's also clear that the United States doesn't need a future president who is so quick to compromise the state and nation's well being in the name of a big polluter and political contributor.

We live in a time of great change in terms of our medical care: how we access it, how it is coordinated, and who pays for it. The change we face in health care is kind of like going back to the future; like the house calls of old, more health and long-term care will be provided within the local community. And with greater access to care, people will increasingly become more responsible for paying for care and navigating care delivery. We are seeing revealing new trends as today's younger seniors are rightfully and fortunately remaining engaged, aging in place, and only episodically interacting with hospitals and medical centers while rehabbing or receiving transitional care in our skilled nursing centers.

Through the first two months of the Orioles' season, second baseman Ryan Flaherty's reputation hinged much more on his glove than his bat. In 30 games, Flaherty was perfect in the field. At the plate, though, he struggled, starting the year 0-for-17 and batting .133 before being sent down to Triple-A Norfolk on May 18. But after being recalled Wednesday night, Flaherty showed some offensive life, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in the Orioles' 9-6 comeback win over the Washington Nationals and 1-for-3 with a run in Thursday's 2-0 victory..

Data released by the federal government Wednesday show that what hospitals charge Medicare to treat patients varies widely.

Education observers were split Tuesday on whether the city's school board should launch a nationwide search to replace schools CEO Andrés Alonso or give the job of taking on the district's daunting challenges to his hand-picked successor. Some, such as principals union president Jimmy Gittings, said they'll push for the board to name interim CEO Tisha Edwards as permanent superintendent. School officials said late Tuesday that Edwards, Alonso's chief of staff, would not have to obtain a state waiver despite lacking the teaching experience typically required by state law for the post.
