NC State baseball hot, but UNC is even hotter

Elliott Avent felt pretty good about the way his N.C. State baseball team played on Tuesday. Then he got home and watched the end of North Carolina’s 20-5 win over South Carolina in Charlotte. “I couldn’t believe the score when I turned it on,” Avent said. It has been that kind of year for the Tar Heels (27-6). (Durham Herald-Sun)

Tim Federowicz's contract purchased by San Francisco Giants

Tim Federowicz was added to the San Francisco Giants' 25-man roster Tuesday. With Buster Posey headed to the 7-day disabled list, Federowicz will serve as the Giants' backup catcher until he is back. With a capable Nick Hundley ahead of him, it's unlikely that Federowicz will see much playing time during his brief stint with San Francisco. (CBS Sports)

The ins and outs of how new-look Matt Harvey is successful

Different Knight. Good night. Let’s not go completely overboard on the “Humbled Matt Harvey” angle, because he’s still a professional athlete, a job in which a large ego can serve you quite well as long as it’s properly channeled, and he can still date his way into Page Six. But the right-hander clearly has refined a lower key since undergoing surgery last July. (New York Post)

Matt Harvey Is No Longer the Alpha Dog, but Still Has Bite

That was not bad for a man with one less rib than the rest of us. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey took to the mound at Citi Field on Thursday night for the first time since he shut down his season last July and had surgery.

Matt Harvey dazzles in first meaningful game since surgery

At the start of spring training, Terry Collins saw a pitcher coming back from a serious operation.
