Burnett not expected to sign this week
Pitcher A.J. Burnett is unlikely to sign this week, barring a major change in the offers in front of him, according to a source involved in the negotiations.
• A source with Cleveland indicated that the Indians are still "actively engaged in the closer market" but haven't settled on one player or finalized a deal yet. There have been reports the team is close to reaching an agreement with free-agent righty Kerry Wood.
