Mets' Matt Harvey draws fans to Fishkill, NY in minor league rehab start

Matt Harvey arrived at Dutchess Stadium around 5 p.m. Saturday. The first thing he noticed were the “Harvey 33” jerseys worn by fans, who swarmed him for autographs before he reached the clubhouse.

Cleveland Indians' Andrew Miller tests right knee in bullpen session

Indians left-hander Andrew Miller threw a bullpen session Friday afternoon to test the right knee that put him on the 10-day disabled list on Aug. 2 in Boston. Miller threw two sets of about 10 to 12 pitches each. Pitching coach Mickey Callaway, bullpen coach Jason Bere and head athletic trainer James Quinlan were among those watching. (Cleveland.com)

Andrew Miller progressing, but Indians in no rush

The way the Indians view things, reliever Andrew Miller is far too important to their postseason chances to be rushed back from his current stint on the disabled list. If a few extra days of rest and recovery are required, expect Cleveland to take the conservative approach. "He may not be able to come off the day that he's eligible," Indians manager Terry Francona said on Tuesday. (MLB.com)

Blue Jays first-round pick Logan Warmoth adjusting to pro ball

Logan Warmoth is adjusting well to professional baseball. He is hitting .358 with one home run and 12 RBI along with a .389 on base percentage. For Warmoth, the most difficult adjustment is the schedule. “It’s tough, it’s a grind, we are playing six to seven games a week. We are traveling six or seven hours on bus rides and you have to learn to take care of your body.” (Bluebird Banter)

Astros' first-round draft pick J.B. Bukauskas will make his first start for short-season Class A-Tri City on Thursday in the New York-Penn League in Lowell, Mass.

Call him ‘Corey’s Brother’ — Kyle Seager is starting to heat up for the Mariners

Despite his machinations about being second fiddle to his brother, Kyle Seager is a fine player in his own right. He’s been selected to an All-Star game and is part of the Mariners’ heart of the batting order. Admittedly, the first half of this season didn’t meet his lofty expectations or those of Mariners’ fans. But he’s starting to get hot coming out of the All-Star break. (Seattle Times)

For Matt Harvey, Pitching to a Teammate Represents Progress

The last time Matt Harvey took the mound at Citi Field, there were nearly 35,000 fans in the stands, the defending champion Chicago Cubs were in the visitors’ dugout, and the Mets’ 2017 playoff chances had yet to be pronounced dead. On Tuesday, Harvey’s only opponent was his teammate Brandon Nimmo, and the spectators were a small crowd, including Manager Terry Collins. (New York Times)

Dear Carolina fans, This summer was pretty unbelievable with the opportunities I was given and the amount of outstanding people I have met along the way.

Cleveland Indians place All-Star reliever Andrew Miller on DL because of knee tendinitis

Andrew Miller continues to be the trade that keeps on giving for the Cleveland Indians

A year ago, early in the morning on July 31, word spread that the Indians had acquired left-hander Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees.
