Matt Harvey's return doesn't end well, but Mets see a silver lining

Too much of the chatter around the New York Mets' Matt Harvey over the past week has been about what he needs to do as a person and a teammate. With his outing Friday in a 7-4 New York loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he showed he also has a lot of work to do as a pitcher. And he knows it, which might be the silver lining in all this.

Mariners’ Kyle Seager talks baseball, brothers, idolizing Derek Jeter and more

In case you didn’t notice, Kyle Seager is heating up. Over his last seven games, the Mariners third baseman is hitting .320, including a game-clinching home run last weekend against the Rangers. Seager’s bat has anchored one of the best 3-4-5 combos in baseball, while his sure-handed play at third base has solidified the left side of the Mariners’ infield. (Seattle Times)

No. 3 Carolina Baseball Closes Road Schedule At Virginia Tech

Ex-Cub Adam Greenberg puts positive spin on one of baseball's cruelest tales

Adam Greenberg (UNC 2000-02) got hit squarely in the head by a fastball on the first pitch he saw in the big leagues.

Prior to a recent speaking appearance in Chicago, Greenberg said the Cubs' success only served to stir up his thoughts of what might have been. (Chicago Tribune)

Why Mets' Matt Harvey's start in Milwaukee might be biggest yet

Not to sound hyperbolic here, but Matt Harvey will take the mound Friday under far different circumstances than he did the last time out. Harvey had a bad week. His supermodel girlfriend dumped him for her ex, Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. It was done publicly, with paparazzi catching the two of them on the night of the Met Ball. (NJ.com)

Winston-Salem Dash's Landon Lassiter back doing what he does best

UNC's Logan Warmoth No Longer An Afterthought

Every Friday this season, UNC shortstop Logan Warmoth takes a backseat to junior righthander J.B. Bukauskas. It’s not a big deal to occasionally fall in Bukauskas’ shadow. He’s been one of the most impressive college arms in the 2017 draft class, showcasing his mid-to-upper 90s fastball and his double-plus slider regularly, with the results to back it up.
