Andrew Miller is already the Yankees closer

Let's not kid ourselves here; Andrew Miller is the Yankees closer, even if no one will say that he has the job. At the moment, Miller has two saves, nine strikeouts, and has only allowed one hit, walked two, and hit a batter in 5.0 innings this year. (Pinstripe Alley)

The Powerful Dustin Ackley, Revisited

Back in November, I examined the improvements Ackley made down the stretch in 2014. In short, last year Ackley improved his production off fly balls by pulling the ball with more authority and distance. Through nine games, we’ve seen Ackley build off those improvements he made last year. (Lookout Landing)

South Carolina's Chad Holbrook steps up for student with dwarfism

Driving in the car a few days after Christmas, South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook noticed his wife, Jennifer, crying as she read something on her phone.

Yankees reliever Andrew Miller says time with Orioles was 'most fun I've ever had playing baseball'

When New York Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller took the mound in the eighth inning Monday with one on, one out and his club clinging to a one-run lead, he wasn't nostalgic. He wasn't considering that the guys in the batter's box were his teammates just a few short months ago. (Baltimore Sun)

J.B. Bukauskas thriving in first season at North Carolina

During his three years of varsity baseball at Stone Bridge High School, right-handed pitcher J.B. Bukauskas found that when he needed to get an out, he just reared back and fired his 95 mile per hour fastball past the hitter.
