Derek Jeter now has 3,431 hits and moves ahead of Honus Wagner for 6th all-time.

Another nice feather in his cap. It is unlikely that he can catch Number five on the list as he would need another 84 hits over the last weeks of the season to catch Tris Speaker, who accumulated 3515 hits over his career.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson

Chris Bosh will have more tests on his injured Calf.

Bosh sounds optimistic, but we should know more in the coming days. If his calf injury is serious, it could prevent Miami from trading Hassan Whiteside, despite Whiteside's impeding free agency. Josh McRoberts could pick up the lion's share of Bosh's minutes if Bosh misses any time. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Shaun Suisham has not been cleared to kick yet, he's still recovering from the torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn meniscus he suffered.

The Steelers had terrible luck with their kickers last season, beginning with Suisham's torn ACL. Whoever wins Pittsburgh's kicking job out of training camp will be worth drafting for fantasy; the Steelers were fourth in the NFL in points last season and Chris Boswell and Josh Scobee combined for 146 fantasy points, which would have tied for fourth among kickers. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Robert Griffin III has been praised by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones multiple times in recent years, and Cowboys beat writer Brandon George believes Dallas could be a potential landing spot for Griffin if he is released by the Redskins.

If RG3 goes to Dallas it would be as the backup and potential successor to Tony Romo, but it is possible another team would give Griffin the opportunity to compete for a starting job. Griffin isn't big enough to handle the punishment that comes with rushing consistently like Cam Newton, and he isn't a good enough passer to stay in the pocket. He will almost certainly be irrelevant no matter where he goes. Analysis: Steve Pimental

C.J. Spiller will likely remain on the Saints roster, at least into training camp, according to’s Mike Triplett. Spiller will count more against the cap if he is cut before June 1.

Spiller was largely ineffective last season, but there is a decent chance he can be effective catching passes out of the backfield if he can stay healthy. No matter where he ends up, Spiller will be nothing more than a late-round pick in PPR leagues. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Celtics currently have no interest in trading for Dwight Howard.

The Celtics have been linked to Al Horford and Kevin Love in recent days, and both of those big men make more sense for Boston. If Boston cannot make a move for a better player, they could turn their attention to Howard as Thursday's trade deadline approaches. Analysis: Steve Pimental

DeMarcus Cousins is not available in a trade leading up to the trade deadline, according to sources.

As dysfunctional as they are, even the Kings know better than to trade DeMarcus Cousins. If Cousins does become available, the Celtics would have to be considered the favorites to land Cousins, though the 76ers and several other teams would likely make a push for him. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Danilo Gallinari is not on the trade block leading up to the trade deadline, according to sources.

With the Nuggets on the outside looking in right now and Danilo Gallinari set to be an unrestricted free-agent after the season, it would not be surprising if he was traded. Gallinari has been playing tremendously and would bring back a nice haul for the Nuggets. He is a must-start and would continue to be if he went to a contender. On the season, Gallinari is averaging 34.8 minutes per-game with 19.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.6 assists.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Update: Shabazz Muhammad is not a trade target for the Boston Celtics, according to a source.

After reports that the Celtics, Suns, Clippers, and Blazers have inquired about Shabazz Muhammad's services, we are now hearing the opposite for the Celtics. The Celtics are looking to add somebody to their line-up and have been linked to multiple players. If Muhammad is traded to one of those teams he would be worth a pick-up. As long as he is in Minnesota he is not worth a roster spot, but as soon as he gets traded he will be an asset.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

LeBron James said trade rumor involving Kevin Love and Knicks' Carmelo Anthony are false.

General manager, coach, and player LeBron James decided to let everyone know that those trade rumors are false. There were trade rumors last season about Kevin Love as well and nothing happened. There is likely merit behind the rumors, but James doesn't want Love to get upset and mess up his run to another title by being distracted, but you better believe he would love for this to happen. Don't be surprised if something like this happens. A LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kyrie Irving back-court would be deadly offensively.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Al Horford is not being actively shopped to any teams at this point.

The Hawks sit at three games out of first place in the Eastern Conference and the only way they should trade Al Horford is if they don't want to offer him a max-contract, which is what he's going to want, and they want to get something in return for him. Atlanta is in the top-half of the league in scoring and top-5 in defense this season. Though the team isn't actively shopping him, they are still entertaining phone calls on him and Jeff Teague. They need to be blown away to accept an trade for one or both of those guys with where they sit in the rankings. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Billy Butler is a player the Athletics are willing to trade because he is scheduled to make $10 million in each of the next two seasons and was below average offensively in each of the last two seasons.

The one thing that is a plus about Billy Butler is that he has been very healthy his whole career. He played in 1,101 games out of a possible 1,134 over the last seven years and 1,317 out of a possible 1,458 his whole career. The only time he played less than 124 games was his rookie year when he played 92. His offense isn't the greatest, but it's middle-of-the-pack type numbers. Last season he hit .251 with 15 HRs, 52 BB, 65 RBIs, and 101 Ks. In all honesty he should be trade-able, but the A's will probably have to eat a little bit of his contract.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) is expected to return in 3-4 weeks.

After undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur in December, it seems like a quick recovery but that is no guarantee, just a goal. There is no way that he would go back to his 22.6 minutes-per-game upon returning, with him most likely being eased back into the line-up with such a long absence. With the end of the season in April, the only way Vasquez is worth owning is if Michael Carter-Williams is traded or if one of him and Jerryd Bayless is injured.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Rays manager Kevin Cash expects a healthy competition between Rene Rivera, Hank Conger and Curt Casali behind the plate.

Unless he improved his hitting dramatically, Rene Rivera figures to be at the back of the race between the three. River hit .178 last year in 110 games. He had 86 Ks, 11 walks, a measly 26 RBIs, and he was unhappy with is playing time last year, so expect him to be possibly traded at some time even though he holds almost no value. It appears that Hank Conger and Curt Casali will have a healthy competition though. Both are very close to production so one needs to step up. Conger is a switch hitter and had about the same production in 28 less games than Casali. Look for Conger to be the starter with Casali getting a healthy amount of looks as well. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Mariners have signed SP Charles Brewer to a minor league deal.

Charles Brewer has bounced around a couple of teams during his career while dealing with injuries. Last year at Double-AA he pitched in 12 1/3 innings and had a 2.92 ERA with four walks, seven Ks, and four ERs. If he can get through the injuries, Brewer can become more than a depth player for an organization. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Padres have signed RHP Trey McNutt to a minor league contract.

Let's not forget the Trey McNutt was once considered a top prospect and that he is only 26 years-old. McNutt will have to work his way back after a real lack of playing the last two years. He missed the entire 2014 season after having shoulder surgery and then only pitching in eight innings last year. He did show quite a bit of rust in those eight innings giving up six earned runs with three walks, and four strike-outs. He did get two wins but his ERA was a 6.750. Even if he can't get back to starting status, he could find himself as a really good relief pitcher. Analysis: Mike Cahill
