Free-agent right-hander A.J. Burnett's agents will be in Las Vegas this afternoon, and they think talks are progressing with the Braves. • Arizona wants to sign veteran infielder Mark Loretta. • The Rangers will still talk about catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, even with Gerald Laird having been dealt to Detroit. • Milton Bradley has met with the Rays.
