Patriots signed first round pick DT Dominique Easley to a 4-year, $7.3M contract with a $3.63M signing bonus.
The defensive tackle tore both of his ACLs at the University of Florida and the last one happened last September to end his college career. He has a high ceiling with his violent, quick-twitch three technique, Easley's best season was 2012, when he racked up 8.5 tackles for loss and four sacks in 11 games. He'll be a plus NFL starter if his health cooperates.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
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).
