Pirates' Jacob Stallings called up to big leagues Tuesday

Jacob Stallings had his contract selected from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday. With Chris Stewart (knee) being placed back on the disabled list, the Pirates needed a third catcher on the big league roster. Stallings will fill the void, although it'll be tough for him to crack the lineup very frequently given his struggles with the bat at Triple-A this season. (CBS Sports)

Matt Harvey says rehab from surgery is going slower than expected

In his first public comments since undergoing surgery to correct his Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Mets pitcher Matt Harvey said Monday he is feeling well, though his rehab isn't going as quickly as he originally hoped. "Rehab's a little slow but it's coming along. I'm doing whatever the doctors say and it's a little bit slower than I thought but I'm doing everything I can." (New York Daily News)

Kyle Seager, Corey Seager set brother home run record

Corey Seager hit a two-run shot on Saturday in their 5-0 win over the Marlins. That home run was the 25th of the season. Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager also homered on Saturday, his career-high 28th home run of the season. The Seagers are the first set of brothers to each hit at least 25 home runs in the same season, confirmed with the Elias Sports Bureau. (True Blue L.A.)

Mariners' Kyle Seager Extends hitting streak, sets new career high in homers

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and two runs against the Rangers on Thursday. He's now hit safely in nine consecutive games and homered twice in the last three. The home run was Seager's 27th, a new career high, and his current .296 batting average is a nearly 30-point improvement over his previous career best in that category. (CBS Sports)

Cubs' Tim Federowicz Called up from Triple-A

Tim Federowicz was called up by the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. Federowicz bit the bullet and accepted an outright assignment after being designated for assignment in June, and his patience has been rewarded as he will come up to join the expanded September roster. A .194/.245/.297 career hitter at the major league level, he will merely provide depth. (CBS Sports)

Andrew Miller's stuff is so filthy he made a batter fall

Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller has nasty stuff. That was on full display Monday night in Oakland, as Miller came on to shut down an Indians’ 1-0 win. Miller’s slider game-ending slider not only struck out A’s batter Khris Davis. It also knocked him off his feet. (FOX Sports)

Brian Miller, Hunter Williams Named To Cape Cod All-League Team

UNC juniors Brian Miller and Hunter Williams were named to the Cape Cod Baseball League's annual year-end all-league team, league commissioner Paul Galop announced this week. Both Miller and Williams were also named to the midseason CCBL All-Star Game rosters, and Williams was a member of the Harwich team that won the East Division title. (GoHeels.com)

Cleveland reliever Andrew Miller handling flexible role, high-leverage situations

Until further notice, Andrew Miller’s role in the Indians’ bullpen isn’t changing. He hasn’t been inserted as the Indians’ closer, and he hasn’t been relegated to an eighth-inning role. It’s a nod to the growing trend in baseball that a set inning for the relievers at the back end of the bullpen might not be the best way to go about things every night. (Akron Beacon Journal)

Adam Warren deserves a crack at the Yankees’ rotation

While the Yankees seem content to cycle between Green, Severino, and perhaps Luis Cessa, the best candidate to fill that role currently resides in the bullpen in the form of Adam Warren. He has been a victim of his ability to succeed wherever Joe Girardi and the Yankees see fit to pitch him. (Pinstripe Alley)

Lower Concessions Prices & More Options At UNC Venues

The UNC department of athletics and its concessions partner, Aramark Sports and Entertainment, is introducing reduced concessions prices and new outside food and beverage options for all Olympic sports venues for the 2016-17 school year. Fans can enjoy lower-priced food and beverage options at Olympic sports events. (GoHeels.com)

Atlanta Braves Add Brian Moran, Assign Him To Triple-A Gwinnett

With the Braves’ bullpen still unsettled over the next several days, John Coppolella signs Indy ball pitcher Brian Moran to bolster the ranks. Brian Moran is soon to be 28 years old, 6’3"/210 and is a southpaw reliever who hails from Port Chester NY. (Tomahawk Take)

Yankees’ Adam Warren: No Place Like Home

There are some baseball players that are just meant to play in one uniform. New York Yankee right-hander, Adam Warren, fits that bill. Since rejoining the Yankees on July 27 in the deal that sent flame throwing closer, Aroldis Chapman, to the Chicago Cubs, Warren has pitched seven scoreless innings and looked every bit the pitcher he was during his first stint with the team. (Baseball Essential)

Always in demand, Indians lefty Andrew Miller nears another October run

Andrew Miller’s World Series ring has never really been worn, and he may keep it out of sight until he’s “one of those old guys who has a World Series ring stashed in his closet.” He cherishes the ring earned for his relief work with the 2013 Boston Red Sox, but since he missed out on postseason glory due to a foot injury, he’s not inspired to don it on a whim. (USA Today)

Andrew Miller: ‘Kind of weird’ to be back at Yankee Stadium

Wearing an Indians uniform, dressing in the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium and sitting in the left-center field bullpen wasn’t what Andrew Miller anticipated when he inked a four-year deal worth $36 million with the Yankees prior to the 2015 season. (New York Post)

Andrew Miller Finds Easy Transition From Yankees to Indians

During parts of two seasons with the Yankees, reliever Andrew Miller kept with tradition and stayed clean-shaven. When he returned to the Bronx on Friday as a member of the Cleveland Indians, Miller sported a noticeable swath of facial hair, looking more relaxed. Miller is no longer distracted by the trade rumors and role changes that shadowed him with the Yankees. (New York Times)
