Quarterback A.J. McCarron of Alabama is visiting the Browns Tuesday.

McCarron is making his way around the NFL so that teams can take a closer look at him. He is currently projected as a fourth-round pick and many speculate that the Ravens are where he could end up. He's more game-manager than gunslinger, so you probably won't be running over people to get him.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Jason Vargas will throw two simulated innings on Thursday.

Vargas hasn't thrown since June 8 after hitting the 15-day DL with a left flexor strain. Depending on how well Vargas does in the simulated game will go a long way in determining his return to the mound. Joe Blanton has filled in for Vargas in his absence.  Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Update: LaMarcus Aldridge has turned down signing with the Lakers.

It was a 50-50 chance Aldridge might join the Lakers, but he was unimpressed with the basketball part of their pitch to him. With LA in a desperate rebuilding stage, Aldridge didn't want to be a part of it. It seems like an almost guarantee at this point that the power forward will sign with the Spurs. He's been very impressed with their pitch and his desire to play exclusively at the power forward spot is something San Antonio is willing to grant him--especially with Tim Duncan's expected re-signing with the team. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Yankees select the contract OF Taylor Dugas from Double-A Trenton.

Carlos Beltran suffered a rib cage injury on Tuesday, and it looks like he could miss a few games--including being out of the lineup today. With Beltran being day-to-day for now the Yanks brought up Dugas as a cautionary move. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Yankees outrighted RHP Esmil Rogers to Triple-A Scranton.

Carlos Beltran is battling an oblique injury but the Yanks don't want to relegate him to the DL just yet, but need the roster spot for an extra outfielder so Rogers was the odd man out. Rogers has a 6.27 ERA and 31 strikeouts in the majors this season. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Andrew Miller (forearm) threw 20 pitches off the mound on Wednesday.

Miller has been on the shelf since June 10 with a left forearm strain, and he's been making small, step-by-step progress ever since. The Yanks are hoping he will be back around the All-Star break, as he was one of the best relievers in baseball before the injury. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Carlos Correa is not in the Astros starting lineup on Wednesday.

Correa's just getting a routine day off. The young budding star--already getting A-Rod comparisons--is already in the Top 10 in WAR among shortstops. Since his June 8 call up, Correa has a .287 average with five home runs and 15 RBI. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Jerome Williams (strained left hamstring) took pitchers fielding practice on Wednesday.

Williams is on the DL with a strained left hamstring. The 33-year-old unwillingly did the splits in a June 16 game and has been on the shelf ever since. With a 3-7 record and 6.43 ERA on the league's worst team, Williams shouldn't be owned by anybody even when he does return. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Carlos Beltran (oblique) is not in the Yankees lineup on Wednesday.

Beltran suffered a rib cage injury on Tuesday and the club is examining him to see whether a DL stint is necessary. It looks like he could miss a few games at worst but with the club calling up Taylor Dugas from Triple-A it's looking more likely. Garrett Jones will be in right field and bat sixth tonight. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Celtics signed Jonas Jerebko to a two-year, $10 million deal.

After agreeing to send $24 million to Amir Johnson over the next two years, the Celts re-signed Jerebko, who averaged 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game for Boston after being acquired from the Pistons at the trade deadline. But really? Spending this amount of money on low-level role players is a reach.  Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Michael Cuddyer (knee) is not in the Mets starting lineup on Wednesday.

Cuddyer's status should be considered day-to-day after he left Tuesday's game with a knee injury. His MRI showed no serious damage and it looks like he'll only miss a few games. In the meantime he will be replaced in left field by John Mayberry, who has no fantasy value with a .185 average, three home runs and nine RBI. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Thunder have agreed to a five-year deal worth almost $25 million with Kyle Singler.

Singler was a big part of the Thunder bench upon arriving from the Detroit Pistons in a trade. In his first three seasons, Singler has averaged 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

LaMarcus Aldridge will not be returning to Portland and the Spurs, Lakers, Maverick s and Rockets are front-runners.

It's been pretty apparent for awhile now that Aldridge wouldn't be coming back to Portland but his destination has been up in the air. It seems like the Spurs and Mavericks are the top two suitors, as it was reported that he walked away from his meeting with the Lakers unimpressed. The Spurs have been making a lot of moves to free up the cap space to land Aldridge and a gut feeling says he will end up in San Antonio because they seem to be the most committed to him and the best place for him to win now. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Addison Russell is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Wednesday.

Just a routine day off for Russell, who will be replaced at second base by Jonathan Herrera, who is batting second. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
