Andrew Miller in a good place with Yankees

The long hair and bushy beard that became so familiar during his four-year tenure with the Red Sox are gone, both victims of the anachronistic grooming rules the Yankees adhere to. But there’s no mistaking Andrew Miller on the mound. Once the season starts, Miller will be pitching much later in the game for the Yankees and is sure to be tougher to hit. (Boston Globe)

I'm A Tar Heel: Alex Raburn

Alex Raburn: "I would like to thank you for your support this early in the season. We all appreciate you battling the weather, and still making it out to the Bosh. We encourage you to continue to come out as we have some very exciting home games coming up. We feed off your energy at home, and wouldn’t want to play anywhere else. Wearing Carolina across my chest is such an honor." (GoHeels.com)

New York Yankees 2015 40-man roster preview: Adam Warren

Adam Warren was told to come to camp as a starter once again, and being just 27, he still has time to transition back to that role full-time; however, on the flip side, it stands to mention that of the dozen or more arms that could end up in the Yankees bullpen at some point in 2015, Warren and David Carpenter have the most career saves heading into the spring.

This Week in UNC Baseball

The Tar Heels capped a 4-1 week with a let down in its final game against Duke. The Heels had coupled solid offensive outings with strong pitching to wins for much of the week. The team laid an egg Sunday, only getting four hits and using eight pitchers in their loss. Trevor Kelley had a great week as a reliever, appearing in four games and throwing 12.1 innings, allowing 4 earned runs. (Tar Heel Blog)

No. 11 Tar Heels Drop Series Finale To Duke, 9-2

Duke jumped on No. 11 North Carolina early and salvaged the series finale with a 9-2 win Sunday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium.

Carolina, which won four times this week and sealed the series win Saturday, fell to 10-4. (GoHeels.com)

Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley unfazed by apparent platoon situation

The Mariners hope this finally is the year they get a season of steady, sustained excellence from Dustin Ackley. So far, he has merely tantalized with fits and starts of productivity. They’ve hedged their bets, however, by obtaining Rickie Weeks for what essentially will be a left-field platoon. (Seattle Times)

No. 11 Carolina Baseball Handles Duke, 6-2

Landon Lassiter and Logan Warmoth had three hits each and J.B. Bukauskas threw six shutout innings as No. 11 North Carolina topped visiting Duke 6-2 Saturday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium.

Carolina (10-3, 2-0 ACC) struck first in a three-run fourth and never trailed. (GoHeels.com)

Adam Warren preparing for starting role with Yankees

Adam Warren made it to the big leagues as a starting pitcher. The New Bern native was a key asset out of the New York Yankees’ bullpen last season. This spring, he’s been told to prepare to compete for a spot in the back-end of the starting rotation. “They want me to be prepared to be a starter so that’s kind of what I am doing,” Warren said. (New Bern Sun Journal)

No. 11 Tar Heels Thump Duke, 8-1

Zac Gallen pitched into the eighth and had a career-high 12 strikeouts to lead No. 11 North Carolina past Duke 8-1 Friday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium in the ACC opener for both teams. Skye Bolt had three hits and drove in two runs, and Wood Myers extended his hitting streak to 16 games for the Tar Heels, who have now won their conference lid-lifter in each of the last six seasons. (GoHeels.com)

Matt Harvey makes his return. And he was really impressive.

Matt Harvey made his spring debut today. It was his first action since undergoing Tommy John surgery in October 2013. It was pretty darn good. He struck out the first batter he faced, Anthony Gose. He broke the bat of Jose Iglesias. Then he got Rajai Davis to hit into a simple ground ball out, breaking his bat too. (NBC Sports)

Tar Heels, Blue Devils to face off on diamond, too

ESPN will bring College Gameday to campus for the UNC-Duke basketball game Saturday, and the baseball series lacks similar hype. That’s mostly because neither team has won a baseball national championship, and while North Carolina has made six trips to the College World Series since 2006, the Blue Devils have not made an NCAA tournament appearance since 1961. (WRAL Sports Fan)

No. 11 Diamond Heels To Open ACC Play With Duke

Carolina kicks off its 2015 ACC schedule with a three-game series against rival Duke beginning Friday at 3 p.m. at Boshamer Stadium. The series will continue Saturday at 2 p.m. and conclude Sunday at 2. The Tar Heels went 4-3 on an impromptu seven-game road trip before returning home to beat VCU on Wednesday. Duke enters the weekend winners of nine straight. (GoHeels.com)
