UNC's Scott Jackson leaves dream program for dream position

Scott Jackson will leave North Carolina after eight years an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator to become the head baseball coach at Liberty University. For the 40-year-old, the move hits the mark exactly on a goal he set when he began coaching. “I always told myself I wanted to be a head coach by the time I was 40,” Jackson said. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tim Federowicz on his future, being designated for assignment

The Chicago Cubs have three catchers in youngster Willson Contreras and veterans David Ross and Miguel Montero. So, what does that mean for Tim Federowicz? After being designated for assignment, Federowicz is back with the Iowa Cubs, who beat the Las Vegas 51s 7-2 before an announced crowd of 11,767 fans at Principal Park on Friday night.

Andrew Miller is not ready to leave Yankees

Andrew Miller was ready for the question, if only because he’s heard it so many times in the Bronx. Is the Yankees’ setup man bracing for the dismantling that could be just around the corner? And, more specifically, had Miller considered the possibility that his appearance in Tuesday’s All-Star Game was his last on a national stage in pinstripes? (NorthJersey.com)

Yankees to Andrew Miller: If trade offer blows us away, we'll take it

Everyone has a price. For the Yankees and the impending trade market, that's a phrase that will likely be tested over the next few weeks. With the team trying to decided if selling, buying or standing pat is the best way to proceed at the Major League Baseball trade deadline, getting big value in return for assets is key. Especially when it's a player like Andrew Miller. (NJ.com)

A flameout, a bottom, a Red Sox revelation: How Andrew Miller got here

“It was a confusing year,” Bobby Valentine said of the 2012 Red Sox, the team he managed to a 69-93 finish and last place in the AL East. And while the season is probably most remembered for being an odd blip for an organization that went on to win the World Series the next season, it also produced the emergence of Andrew Miller as a reliable relief pitcher.

Why Mets' Matt Harvey getting surgery is the right call

For all that has gone wrong for Matt Harvey this year, at least he’s got this: His last official act of his 2016 season was the right call, opting for surgery next week to correct his Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which puts his focus squarely on a 2017 return. Maybe that’s when we’ll see the same guy who’s pitched so brilliantly at times instead of the stranger in a Met uniform who, we find out now, apparently was compromised by health this year. (New York Daily News)

Matt Harvey's brief career is starting to feel like a lifetime

Matt Harvey is only 27, but sometimes it seems like he’s 35. His four seasons of MLB play have transpired in what feels like dog years. Already, he’s gone through the New York tabloid wringer; earned a moniker that has aged about as well as a middle-school AIM screen name; had Tommy John surgery in 2013 and a subsequent reassuring comeback in 2015; battled neck bloat and tunnel traffic and innings limits; and reckoned with agent of chaos Scott Boras.

Kyle Seager should be an All-Star

Yes, I have expressed the position (publicly, loudly, in ways that are awkward at parties) that Kyle Seager is underappreciated outside of Seattle. And yes, if asked to pick a favorite current Mariner, non-Felix division, I would most certainly select Kyle. But that doesn't mean that there isn't a good argument that Kyle Seager should have heard his name announced yesterday, or that I can't be the one to make it. (Lookout Landing)

Mets’ Matt Harvey opts for season-ending shoulder surgery

Matt Harvey will have season-ending surgery to relieve symptoms associated with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), according to multiple reports citing his agent. The Mets righthander should be available by spring training 2017 barring any complications after the surgery. (New York Daily News)

Thoracic outlet syndrome, and what it means for Matt Harvey and the Mets

This is just the latest turn in the ongoing saga about Harvey's health. He had Tommy John surgery and missed all of 2014, though at one point he made noise about wanting to return late in the year, an idea that the team had to publicly reject. (Sports Illustrated)

What Matt Harvey was makes unknown future so scary

There is no blame to assess here, unless it’s to shake a fist at fate. For fans of the Mets — and fans of baseball — who saw what Harvey was in 2013, who remember the genuine bolts of electricity that used to accompany those starts. And for Harvey, too. Maybe he really can come all the way back from this. (New York Post)

Mets starter Matt Harvey considering season-ending surgery after shoulder diagnosis

Matt Harvey’s season is in jeopardy after tests revealed thoracic outlet syndrome in his throwing shoulder. New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters Thursday that he believes surgery is inevitable, a procedure that would require a four-month recovery period. (USA Today)
