Former First Round Pick Levi Michael Still Aiming For The Major Leagues

Levi Michael was selected out of UNC by the Minnesota Twins in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft. If Michael intends on making a major league debut at some point, finding his way to Triple-A Rochester during the 2015 season should be the goal. At 24 years old, there’s no reason for the Twins to slow play Michael if he can put things together. He could prove to be a useful bench option. (Chattanoogan)

Playing for Yankees a relief for Andrew Miller

Before the Yankees got to Boston on Thursday for their three-game weekend set with the Red Sox, Andrew Miller made plans to get to the city a little earlier. For two of the three-plus years Miller spent with the Sox, Craig Breslow’s Strike 3 Foundation had thrown his annual “Sip Happens” food and wine tasting to raise money for childhood cancer research, and Miller always had been a supporter.
