Mariners promote Kyle Seager to bigs

Former UNC baseball player Kyle Seager will get to rejoin his old Diamond Heel teammate at the highest level. The Seattle Mariners announced Wednesday that the 2009 third-round pick Seager will join their 2009 No. 1 overall pick Dustin Ackley in the majors. Seager will make most of his starts at third base after tearing it up the past two weeks in Triple-A ball, hitting .455/.500/.673 in 55 at-bats. (WRAL Sports Fan)
