Weekly walk-up: JB Bukauskas shares reasoning for music choice

The song - "God's Gonna Cut You Down," by Johnny Cash. The process - J.B. Bukauskas, like Gianluca Dalatri, came in to college without ever having to choose a walkout song, but for Bukauskas, it turned out to be an easy task. He found his song in his inaugural campaign as a Tar Heel in 2014 and never looked back. A simple process, but it was the right one in this case. (Daily Tar Heel)

Matt Harvey makes progress on mound, Mets hope confidence returns

Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller is human, barely

As reporters huddled around Andrew Miller, fellow reliever Boone Logan passed the crowd on his way to his locker. "It's the end of the world!" he shouted. "He gave up a run!" It's true. Miller's 2017 ERA is eternally -- albeit ever-so-slightly -- blemished. The Rays tagged him for a run on an eighth-inning sacrifice fly, and his ERA subsequently ballooned to 0.48. (It's 0.47 now.)

A spring tradition: Mariners’ Kyle Seager heating up in May

If Kyle Seager’s past week and a half is an indication, it appears April showers have again brought May power. Seager hasn’t just been potent for the Seattle Mariners this month, he has been clutch as well. If the bullpen would have been able to hang on Tuesday, a Seager home run would have been the difference in three games over a 10-day stretch. (Seattle Times)

Former UNC pitcher Alex White working his way back with independent minor league team

Sioux City Explorers manager Steve Montgomery didn’t know what to expect from 28-year-old righthander Alex White, who spent nearly two full big-league seasons with the Indians and the Rockies.
