Frustrated by errors last season, Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has addressed those issues

The look returns to Kyle Seager’s face. It’s one part annoyance, another part aggravation. It’s arises when Seager does something on a baseball field that he believes is unacceptable for himself. A perfectionist and often his harshest critic, Seager suffers his mistakes with minimal sympathy for himself or any mitigating circumstance of the situation. (Seattle Times)

Andrew Miller's first live BP draws respect from teammates

Brandon Guyer introduced himself to left-hander Andrew Miller last August. Both players had just been traded to the Indians, so Cleveland's new outfielder -- best known for his ability to hit left-handed pitching -- had a message for his new Tribe teammate. "I said, 'Nice to meet you, man. I'm glad I don't have to face you again,'" Guyer recalled with a laugh on Monday. (MLB.com)

This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

North Carolina baseball coach Mike Fox: "Our players are a year older and veterans and we emphasized to hit the ball with a little more authority. You never know when you hit a ball if it is in the gap and it is not as easy a thing that you can control as people think. We need to hit with more power this year certainly and give us more opportunities to score runs." (Inside Carolina)

Looking into reasons why Los Angeles Angels signed Dustin Ackley

A good benchmark to measure his real abilities would be his 2015 season, although there wasn’t any substantial difference in batting — he hit .231/.284/.429 in 108 games. The good news: he’s stronger defensively. He is capable of any out fielding position and can play first and second base when needed. (Outside Pitch MLB)

Matt Harvey, Mets hoping for healthy, drama-free 2017 season

The missing rib, removed from the upper right side of his chest, was easily forgotten about by Matt Harvey. Not being able to feel his right hand, the one he uses to grip a baseball, well, that was alarming. As Harvey spoke Monday about the past seven months since the surgery to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome, the missing hand still haunted him. (Newsday)

Tar Heels Seeking Power at the Plate

After finishing near the bottom of the ACC in various batting statistics, Mike Fox is tweaking UNC’s approach at the plate. Power has not been UNC’s strength in recent years.
