ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that free-agent RB Ben Tate is visiting the Browns on Wednesday.
As expected, running backs aren't getting paid at a premium as evidence of the 3-year 10.5 million dollar deals Donald Brown and Toby Gerhart signed yesterday. Tate has been connected to Cleveland even before they brought in OC Kyle Shannahan, who's zone-blocking rushing attack caters perfectly to Tate's skill-set. There would be good reason to get excited about Tate's fantasy outlook if he were to call Cleveland home. ANALYST: Steve Perrotta
Orioles are expected to option Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.
Wilson's demotion to Triple-A will clear a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake, who's been pitching unbelievably well in Triple-A. Wilson hasn't been particularly bad since being called up, appearing in two games and posting a 4.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP, but Drake's performance appears to have have won him the opportunity to take that next step.

Athletics recalled Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Nashville.
Graveman will make the start in today's game against the Rays as a result of Drew Pomeranz being placed on the DL. Graveman struggled mightily in his four starts with the A's (8.27 ERA, 2.02 WHIP, 9/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio) prior to being sent back down to Triple-A, but has been dominant in his four minor leagues starts since then (1.85 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 14/9 strikeout-to-walk ratio).
