SARASOTA, Fla. -- This isn't exactly the way Ernie Whitt figured it would be. The veteran lefthanded-hitting catcher hardly envisioned himself playing first base while trying to win a job in spring training.The last thing the Orioles need is another first base candidate, but the lack of more than one healthy one at a time has opened a door for Whitt. "A couple of things have worked in my favor," said Whitt. "This at least has given me a chance to get some at-bats early."And it's given them [the Orioles]

NEW YORK -- The Baltimore Orioles placed catcher Ernie Whitt on waivers for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release yesterday and purchased the contract of power-hitting outfielder Chito Martinez from the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings.Whitt batted .242 as a third catcher and left-handed pinch hitter, but the club could no longer justify keeping him on the roster. Martinez was leading the International League with 20 home runs at a time when the Orioles were short on outfield depth.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Mike Flanagan and Ernie Whitt are making a couple of decisions easy for the Orioles -- the only question is when they will be made.Both veterans are in camp as non-roster invitees, but their situations are not identical. The Orioles have an agreement in lTC principle with Whitt, but negotiations with Flanagan never progressed beyond the stage of a spring training invitation.Flanagan gave up his first three earned runs of the spring here yesterday, but still had perhaps his most impressive outing.

All's quiet on the Mickey Tettleton front, and there is evidence that the Baltimore Orioles may have planned it that way.Why else would they have contacted veteran catcher Ernie Whitt several weeks ago to see whether he might be interested in a reserve role with the club?General manager Roland Hemond confirmed yesterday that one his first acts of the off-season was to call Whitt, who was released by the Atlanta Braves after an injury-marred 1990 season.Orioles officials insist that they are confident the catching combination of Chris Hoiles and Bob Melvin would be sufficient to carry them through 1991 if Tettleton doesn't come back, but their early interest in another veteran catcher -- and a left-handed-hitting catcher at that -- seems to indicate that they already were preparing for life after Mickey.

Just as it opens a new headquarters in Rockville, Manugistics Group Inc. has told its employees who are to work there not to show up for a week because it can't afford to pay them. The software company, which expects to be fully moved into its new headquarters this week, informed U.S. employees not to come to work the week of July 1 as part of an unpaid leave program to save the company money, said Manugistics spokeswoman Didi Blackwood. Manugistics employs about 1,500, of whom 1,200 are in the United States.
